Cola®Mid AVCO

INCI Name: Avocadamide DEA, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil

DESCRIPTION
Based upon natural avocado oil, Cola®Mid AVCO combines the benefits of this natural
oil with the functional properties of an alkanolamide surfactant. Avocado oil has been
found to be an advantageous ingredient in cosmetic preparations that are designed to
prevent dry skin or scalp conditions.

Cosmetic use of avocado oil has increased in part because of its rapid skin penetrating
properties. Its fast penetration helps alleviate that oily after feel that is often found when
other vegetable oils are used. Due to the difficulty of emulsifying avocado oil, however,
its use in aqueous systems has been limited. Cola®Mid AVCO is completely self-
emulsifying and allows the incorporation of an efficacious level of avocado oil. Some
typical examples are listed on the following pages.
