Fatty Acid Profile
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.

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.
