Sweet Almond Oil

Our organic sweet almond oil is grown to environmentally friendly, sustainable, and ethical organic standards. The kernels are pressed to extract a golden oil with a plethora of skin benefits. It is also an excellent oil to pomote tanning.

Almond oil has been used since ancient times to treat skin conditions. This oil is gentle, mild, and nourishing and is perfectly suited to sensitive skin, or skin prone to dryness or irritation as a result of tanning.

It is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, and E. Vitamin A supports tanning and has been shown to reduce hyperpigmentation and sun damage. Vitamin E protects skin against free radicals which may result due to sun exposure. Vitamins B1 and B2, also known as thiamine and riboflavin respectively, contribute to the formation of tyrosine which is essential to the formation of melanin (the pigment made by skin that we know as a tan). Vitamin B2 improves skin tone and radiance. Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, has been shown to boost melanin production and hence tanning, by stimulating the production of chemicals and enzymes that support this pathway.
