Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil)
Sweet Almond Oil is the result of cold pressing the tiny kernels, which contain up to 50% oil.
Bursting with vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, and Vitamin D, this pale yellow oil is rich in protein and Omeg-6 which together make for a potent anti-inflammatory, nourishing treat.
You’ll find Sweet Almond Oil in our big mamma MIMI Dark Chocolate Face Mask Kit and our MIMI Little Dark Chocolate Face Mask, as it nourishes the skin, works to reduce inflammation, and according to our customers, leaves your face feeling soft to the touch.
It's also in our MIMI Sweet Cheeks body rub. As you gently massage away dry skin the oils linger, trapping in moisture. You'll notice immediately how soft your skin feels, even after just one use.
Random facts: The Almond tree is indigenous to the Middle East and made its way from Ancient Greece across the Mediterranean (the Romans referred to almonds as Greek nuts)...
It eventually reached Elizabethan England (16th century) when Sweet Almond Oil was favoured as an analgesic, a remedy for a tickly cough, and as a moisturiser for the skin.
ps. For any Neil Diamond fans out there it scans perfectly into 'Sweet Caroline, oh oh oh...'
