Almonds are rich in fat, so they are an important source of fat. There are two types of almonds: sweet almonds and bitter almonds.
Sweet almonds are rich in nutrients, edible, and can be eaten with milk and food. They have many benefits for health as well as skin and hair. They also contain vitamin E and omega-6 fatty acids, which are important ingredients in cosmetics.
Like its source, sweet almond oil is also edible and is good for health, skin and hair. It is a carrier or base oil derived from the fat part of the almond plant, namely kernels, nuts and seeds. Sweet almond oil does not evaporate or spread its aroma as strongly as essential oils, and will come in handy when diluting essential oils.
Sweet almond oil is chemically comprised of fatty acids, phytosterols and tocopherols. Oleic acid or omega-9, a monounsaturated fatty acid is the main constituent (65-75%). Other fatty acids include linoleic acid (13-25%) and saturated fats like palmitic and stearic acid (8-10%). The sterol composition primarily includes β-sitosterol (75-85%) with an abundance of α-tocopherol (vitamin E).
