This unrefined oil is deeper in color, flavor, and aroma than the partially refined almond oil that we offer, and is considered one of the most useful, practical, and commonly used oils. It is great for all skin types as an acting emollient and is best known for its ability to soften, soothe, and re-condition the skin. It is a truly marvelous carrier oil and is equally superb for addition to bodycare products. Natural expeller pressed oil from raw almond kernels and exceptionally rich in fatty acids. Stores well under any condition but extreme heat will lessen the shelf life.
