Sweet almond oil is a natural vegetable oil extracted from the kernels of the sweet almond tree (prunus amygdalus dulcis). It's a pale, lightweight oil that's rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Sweet almond oil is used in a wide range of skincare products including creams, lotions, body oils, serums, massage oils and even makeup removers. Its emollient and moisturizing properties help hydrate and nourish skin. It's also used as a carrier oil for essential oils in aromatherapy skincare products or as a standalone facial oil to promote brighter, more youthful skin.
