Soothe and Nourish with Almond Extract
Balance Sensitive Skin to its Natural Beauty
Balance and nourish sensitive skin with almond. Almond oil is perfect for skin care due to the fact that its structure is so similar to the outer lipid layers of the skin. That means it’s easily absorbed, so its beneficial ingredients can quickly begin to help soothe sensitive skin. It’s packed with essential fatty acids to help your skin stay nourished and moisturized, and is rich in vitamin E and helps to protect skin from a range of environmental aggressors to gently soothe skin.
A Powerhouse to Soothe Sensitive Skin
Beyond the beautiful pink and white flowers that rival cherry blossoms for beauty, the fruit of the almond is a storehouse of nutrients. For over 4,000 years, it’s been cultivated in the Mediterranean and California, as well as Eastern and Central Asia. Known for being rich with minerals and vitamins, especially vitamin E, the almond is not only a nutritional asset; it’s invaluable to Weleda’s Sensitive Care Facial Products and Soothing Body Products.
