Organic Sweet Almond Oil
(Sweet) Almond Oil, Prunus dulcis, cold-pressed from the dried kernels of the almond tree, has moisturizing, nourishing properties and is easily absorbed, leaving the skin soft and smooth without a greasy feel. Almond oil is a great emollient, meaning that it helps to balance skin hydration and water loss.

Ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic practices have used almond oil for centuries to help soothe and soften the skin and to treat minor wounds and cuts.

Allergy Note: Botanically almonds are not nuts. They are actually the seed of a fruit from the almond tree. However, some people with nut allergies are sensitive to almonds. Also, many nuts are processed in shared facilities and there is a risk of cross-contamination.
We use virgin, unrefined, organic sweet almond oil. Unrefined oils have not been bleached or deodorized and retain their natural nutritional benefits.
No two people are alike. Some people may develop an allergic reaction that is unique to them, even with natural or organic ingredients. Be sure to discontinue use if you experience discomfort or any indication that the product ingredients may not be suitable for your body.
