Sweet almond oil

The almond tree (Prunus dulcis) originates in Central Asia and is a member of the Rosaceae family. It is cultivated in Mediterranean countries and in California (more than 80% of global production). Its fruit generally contains a single seed, the almond, from which approximately 50% oil is extracted.

Sweet almond oil has high quantities of oleic acid, which has emollient properties. It makes the skin soft, supple, and more radiant.

Sweet almond oil has regenerating, restructuring, and moisturizing properties, and it is recommended for dry and delicate skin. It also enhances the Sun Protecting Factor (SPF) of sunscreens.

It is used in cosmetic and personal care products, such as skin care, massage oils, make-up removers, moisturizing balms, and hair care.
