This nearly odorless and light yellow oil is mechanically pressed from 100% pure almonds. It is known to be a very effective emollient, rich in essential fatty acids as well as vitamins A and E, providing softening and conditioning qualities to the skin and hair. Because it is such a light oil, it penetrates the skin easily and quickly, making it ideal for dry, itchy skin. When used as a fat in soap making, it saponifies easily and produces a mild soap with a gentle lather. It can be used as a large percentage of fats in your soap recipe, but it is not recommended to be used as the only fat.
