Benefits of Almond Oil

Do you have dry, sensitive skin?

Then Almond oil may become your new best friend.

Enriched with vitamins E, B, D and A, proteins, minerals, and healthy fats.

With a high nutrient content like this, it’s no wonder it has a real affinity with the skin.

Fatty Acid Profile

Almond oil is rich in Fatty Acids, giving the oil its lovely emollient properties.

Oleic Oil: Sweet Almond oil contains around 60% Oleic acid, which has a similar chemical structure to our own natural sebum, so it is readily absorbed by the skin’s tissues.

Linoleic Acid: This is another Fatty Acid that has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties, helping to calm and soothe a sensitive, irritated skin.

PROPERTIES AND USES

  • Skin softening
  • Extremely moisturising
  • The perfect inclusion for a sensitive skin
  • It is tasteless and edible, so it is a great addition for lip balm recipes
  • One of the benefits of Almond oil is that it is a lovely mild and lightweight oil
  • Anti-inflammatory, so it’s the perfect ingredient for stressed out sensitive skin
  • It is a semi-fatty oil, which spreads nicely on the skin
  • It only has a very slight smell, so it won’t interfere with essential oils and fragrances
  • It has a long shelf life of 12 months, so stays stable for a long period of time

Almond oil has a lovely silky, emollient texture.

It glides on the skin effortlessly like silk, and never feels too greasy or heavy. Because of its light texture, it combines really well with other emollients like nourishing Shea Butter and Macadamia nut oil.

This oil contains a high level of fatty acids, which serve as a natural emollient; locking in moisture, forming a protective barrier.

Therefore, it’s really effective in helping to care for conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea.

With a list of benefits like this, we could hardly overlook this important oil, which is why you will find it in a number of our skincare products, which are designed to deliver penetrating healing to impaired skin.

THE NAKED TRUTH
There are two different kinds of almond oil: sweet almond and bitter almond essential oil.
The oil that is used for therapeutic purposes is sweet almond oil. Because it is non-comedogenic, non-greasy, lubricant, medium-light with a quick absorption rate, it works really well on sensitive skin.
Bitter almond oil however, is an essential oil that is used as a scent and flavour.
