Almond oil is one of the most commonly used natural oils in the cosmetics today, not only for its moisturizing benefits, but also because it is sustainable. The process of obtaining almond oil does not damage the trees since the oil comes from the nuts. Almond cultivation dates back to pre-biblical times, and the earliest of writings refer to the almond as an object of value and hope. Since then, the nut has only grown in popularity.
Almond oil contains polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) which are known to improve skin barrier function and hydration. Specifically, linoleic and oleic fatty acids work in the skin barrier to promote function and improve the transport of PUFAs deep into the skin’s layers. In addition to almonds’ ability to create healthy, supple skin through penetrating moisturization, they are also packed with antioxidants, including vitamin E and a variety of phytochemicals. Add almond to your complete emulsifying system for deep moisturization and antioxidant activity that will leave skin and hair feeling rejuvenated!
