How is it made?
The Almond Oil extraction process begins by first blanching and pasteurizing the Almond kernels before the real cold pressing takes place. The use of the cold pressing method ensures that the oil’s nutrients and its antioxidants value remain unchanged or undamaged. The kernels are crushed and ground using a stainless steel equipment or traditional millstone to get the oil.
*It’s important to note that being on this list doesn’t promise that it will work for your skin type.* Our skin will decide which oil it likes the most and remember that skin takes two weeks to turn over so anything that pops up between week 1-2 was probably already going to happen.
Like other substances that are high in fat, carrier oils have a limited shelf life. Meaning that eventually they will go bad. It’s important to store oils in their original air-tight containers in a cool, dark place, such as the pantry, to maximize shelf life.
