Almond oil is a fixed oil produced from almond seeds, in two variety: dulcis (sweet) and bitter. By “fixed oil” it is meant a natural oil to which lipid components have not been extracted. It is also known as fatty oil. For this reason it is particularly used in the cosmetics industry such as emollient or massage oil, not to be confused with the essential oil that is used as an aroma.
In our products you will always find the sweet version of this oil. Let's see why:
-it contains fatty acids, vitamins (B and E), proteins and mineral salts (zinc, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium)
- it is a powerful moisturizer and emollient. Also suitable for children's skin
-dilates pores and cleans thoroughly: in fact it is often used as a make-up remover
-anti-oxidant: helps to prevent the appearance of wrinkles and their treatment.
-regenerating: helps to prevent and treat stretch marks
During pregnancy, I used our cream "Luxurious Mousse" daily, rich with this precious oil, designed to treat skin imperfections. I was then able to control the huge stretch marks on my belly. This oil can also be the best ally during breastfeeding if applied with a gentle nipple massage. Finally, it is perfect for the massage of your newborn: your baby will love it!
