Almonds are the edible seeds of the Prunus dulcis tree, more commonly known as the almond tree. They are very rich in fat, which makes them a perfect source of oil. The cold pressing of the almond seeds results in a light golden yellow oil with a very soft smell. This would be called virgin or pure oil, of first cold pressure. The pressing is done at a very low speed and by refrigeration, so the properties of sweet almond oil remain intact.
Benefits of Sweet Almond Oil
Sweet almond oil is known for its powerful moisturizing effect for people with dry or sensitive skin, especially indicated for pregnant women. If you are in this wonderful time, you can apply daily on the areas that suffer most pregnancy. This is partly due to its emollient properties, which means it helps prevent water loss from the skin.
In addition, this oil is soothing, can even help prevent the spread of stretch marks, as well as redness and itching and is convenient to apply on mild scars, as it has great regenerative power.
Almond oil is full of vitamin E, which helps protect the skin from sunburn and premature aging, being a MUST HAVE for the summer. Numerous studies have shown that when applied to the skin, vitamin E can help protect cells from sun damage.
