BULGARIA (AP) Avon Body Oil is the world’s first body oil that is designed to moisturize and soften skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles.
The brand, which was founded by an Irish couple, began selling its product in 2010.
Avon, which is now owned by Avon Worldwide, said its skin-healing ingredients include a blend of botanical oils and plant-derived emollients, which include essential oils, plant extracts and botanicals.
The company says the oil helps to restore skin elasticity and improve elasticity of the skin, smooth the appearance and reduce discoloration.
Its product is also infused with a blend the body’s natural oils.
A spokeswoman said Avon was the first body-care company to make the transition from oils to emollient formulas, but it has since added other skin-softening ingredients such as plant-based oils, which the company says reduce the amount of redness and inflammation on the skin.
The product is available in 12-packs of 200-ml bottles, and it’s the first of its kind to have the skin-lightening properties of oils and emollience.
Avondale, the world leader in body-wear, said it began testing the product in the United States in 2014 and has now sold it to over 1,000,000 consumers worldwide.
It says the formula contains ingredients that work synergistically to reduce wrinkles, reduce dark circles and smooth the skin tone.
A spokesperson said Avondales skin-brightening skin-boosting moisturizer uses an anti-inflammatory, vitamin E and plant extracts to help maintain healthy skin.
Aventurine, Avondals skin-perfecting facial sunscreen, was launched in 2018.
Its skin-care ingredients include water, plant- derived emolliency, hyaluronic acid, zinc oxide, glycerin, vitamin C and sunflower oil.
It retails for $19.95 for a 10-pack.
