Almond Oil

BOTANICAL NAME: Prunus (the Latin name for Plum Tree) amygdalus (from names of the parents) 

EXTRACTION: Cold pressed

DESCRIPTION: The Almond tree is native to the Mediterranean climate region of the Middle East, Indian subcontinent and North America.  The Almond tree is believed to have been one of the earliest domesticated fruit trees, dating back as early as 3,000 BC.  Nestled in the tree’s green, fuzzy, apricot-like fruit is the almond nut.  When pressed, the almond produces a golden, slightly viscous liquid with a mild marzipan scent.  It boasts a host of healing properties as it contains healthy fats, fiber, phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals.  Due to its high oleic acid content, this allows the oil to penetrate deeper into skin, providing greater nourishment and better results when used.

KEY COMPONENTS:  Oleic acid, linoleic acid, squalane, tocopherol, and phytosterols (sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol)
