Sweet almond oil: your skin’s best friend

Sweet almond flower and fruitWhether your skin is in need of a nourishing treatment, a restorative nutrient-packed moisturiser or a gentle and all natural make-up remover, look no further than pure cold-pressed plant and nut oils. And if your skin is sensitive, dry, irritated, unbalanced or oily, sweet almond is a match for you.Sweet almond oil is well tolerated by all skin types and is particularly gentle and mild. It absorbs quickly into the skin, softening it and improving its natural barrier. Sweet almond keeps skin’s moisture levels in balance, making it ideal for curbing dryness and irritation. Used daily it will recondition and soothe the skin and give it a healthy glow.

What makes sweet almond oil so special?

It is high in essential fatty acids and contains a broad spectrum of vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, D and E), minerals (magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and iron) and proteins – think of it as a very nutritious food, perfect for giving skin daily moisture, helping repair and soothe it along the way.
