SWEET ALMOND OIL
Almond oil is a medium weight oil which softens, soothes, conditions and nourishes the skin. It’s wonderful for the face because it’s easily absorbed, not at all greasy and very nutritious. It is very well known for its high levels of vitamins A and E.
Sweet almond oil also has a refreshing fragrance which has a positive effect on your senses.
The oil derives from the beautiful almond tree, a medium-sized tree with pinkish-white blossoms. It is native to the Middle East and North Africa, but is now grown in the Mediterranean and California.
The almond is part of the plum family. Botanically, they are a drupe and an ancient ancestor of large-stoned fruits, such as apricots, peaches and plums.
Sweet almond oil is packed with vitamin E which has antioxidant properties, which makes it vital in protecting skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution and other elements that produce cell damaging free radicals. Vitamin E is anti-ageing, helping skin look younger by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
