Also known as: Almond Oil for Skin
Almond oil is a multi-purpose natural oil derived from almond seeds (Prunus amygdalus var. dulcus). Almond oil's richness in essential unsaturated fatty acids makes it a strong contender when compared to other natural oils. In particular, almond oil has a high proportions of oleic acid (73%) and linoleic acid (13%), both of which are known to benefit the skin. It also contains vitamin E, another potent antioxidant that works to protect the skin from sun damage and helps to fade discoloration.
