Avocado

Avocado wonders

Our organic avocados are grown in the very heart of Peru: on the Pacific coast and in the Andes Cordillera.

From this wonder-fruit, we extract Avocado Perseose®, our key active ingredient that strengthens babies’ skin barrier.

Zero waste organic avocados

There’s something special about our avocados farmed in the very heart of the Andes Cordillera: they come from a circular economy.
Which means, we recover unsold avocados that are unfit for the food industry and transform them into active ingredients for skin.

Our local impact

In Peru, we have set up responsible supply chains controlled by the UEBT (Union for Ethical BioTrade) which respect 3 fundamental commitments: to preserve the environment with reforestation that maintains biodiversity, to promote good farming practices and traditional know-hows, and to establish sustainable local business relations to guarantee fair prices to producers in the long run.
Our activity provides a new source of income for local populations: our factory in Lima employs 35 people.

AVOCADO PERSEOSE®

Our key active ingredient to protect babies’ skin

Avocado Perseose® is a mix of sugars which support the fruit in its development and ripening.
This active ingredient acts in a similar way on babies’ skin, from birth:
- it participates in the development of the skin's barrier function, by strengthening the production of its key elements (proteins and lipids).
- it also protects the cell capital that is found in the underdeveloped skin of young children, like a shield of skin cells, in order to face external stress.

Baby

Avocado Perseose®, from organic avocados acts like a shield to protect babies’ immature skin.
