Cold-pressed almond oil has many valuable ingredients. It supplies the skin with vitamins A, E, B, and D as well as the minerals potassium, magnesium, and calcium. An adequate supply of vitamin E, in particular, allows the skin to store moisture better, making it appear firmer and fuller. In addition, the high vitamin E content protects against oxidative stress, because vitamin E works against free radicals.
How Almond Oil
Almond oil also contains many unsaturated fatty acids. They penetrate deep into the skin and make it soft and supple. Linoleic acid strengthens the skin’s resistance to infections and protects it from UV rays. It also provides the skin with moisture and counteracts skin irritations. Palmitic acid, an unsaturated fatty acid, ensures that the oil penetrates the skin well. This supports the moisturising and smoothing effect.
