The subjects in study group applied avocado oil mist on their heels and elbows twice a day in the morning and evening for 7 days. The ones in control group applied the mist without avocado oil in same methods. After completion of experiment, the emollient effect of avocado oil was estimated by the moisture measuring instrument in both groups. There is significant emollient effect of avocado oil on elbows but non-significant on heels. The subjects felt moisture and emollient sense on their elbows and heels themselves. Conclusively, the emollient effect of avocado oil was different in quantity between the elbows and heels. Because heels is thicker and drier than elbow, much longer application of avocado oil and supportive method such as scrubbing is required to get emollient effect on heels.
