Containing some of the richest sources of oleic acid in triglycerides which provide transdermal penetration properties Sweet Almond oil is a great skin conditioner and moisturiser. Linoleic acid (Omega 6) is compatible with the sebum of the skin, providing a protective and balancing barrier. Traditionally it has been used as an emollient for hair and skin. Due to its penetrative properties Sweet Almond may enhance the absorption of essential oils.
