Sweet Almond Oil is light and nutritious. It is a pale yellow to golden-coloured liquid oil. It is predominantly composed of monounsaturated oleic acid and rich in linoleic acid, vitamin E, squalene, and glucosides–– all wonderfully nourishing and soothing to the skin. Protects by forming a mildly occlusive barrier, subsequently preventing transepidermal water loss and retaining moisture. Moderate absorption rate. Fantastic in anti-aging formulas and products intended to soothe dry or dehydrated skin. In soaps, Sweet Almond oil contributes a beautiful lather.
