Benefits of Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet almond oil, as the name suggests, is extracted from the seeds of almond trees by cold pressing the kernels. The fact that it contains several essential vitamins such as vitamin A, B1, B2, B6 and E makes it very useful for treating skin conditions. All these vitamins rejuvenate the skin and promote hair growth.

Several skin disorders can also be prevented and treated by using sweet almond oil. It can be used by all except those who have a nut allergy.  It provides a subtle scent as well as cures many skin problems like itching, drying and skin inflammation. Almond oil soap makes a smooth and creamy lather, which is the result of  healthy ingredients present in the almond oil soap that actually cause chains of unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids that are very effective for total skin care. There are no harmful chemicals present in the almond oil soap, making it safe for babies and facial skin as well.

The soaps I make that contain ORGANIC Sweet Almond Oil.

Fun Fact

Almond oil is similar in make-up to the oil that babies excrete to keep their skin naturally soft and smelling great.
