The key to almond oil being so perfect in our skin care lies in 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 begin to help soothe sensitive skin. The exceptionally high, unsaturated fatty acid content helps to strengthen the skin. It’s packed with essential fatty acids to help your skin stay nourished and moisturized. Almond Oil is rich in vitamin E and helps to protect skin from a range of environmental aggressors to gently soothe skin. Hydrated and replenished, you’ll see your skin’s natural balance and beauty.
The skin is part of the body’s integumentary system, which also includes nails, hair and exocrine glands. As the body’s largest organ, keeping your skin balanced is crucial to your overall well-being and one of the reasons we put so much effort into the purity and integrity of all our ingredients–especially our carefully cultivated almonds.
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 personal care products which are certified natural by NATRUE, Europe’s leading natural certifier.
