Sweet Almond carrier oil - Prunus amygdalus - South Africa
This is one of the most useful, practical, and commonly used oils. Its fine texture and easy absorption into the skin makes it an excellent emollient (softening and soothing to the skin) and also helps the skin to balance its loss and absorption of moisture - great for all skin types. It also helps skin problems by relieving irritation, inflammation and itching. Exceptionally rich in fatty acids – almond oil is made up of 62% monounsaturated oleic acid (an omega 9 fatty acid), 24% linoleic acid (a polyunsaturated omega 6 essential fatty acid) and 6% palmitic acid (a saturated fatty acid).
