Cosmetic Functions:

According to the Cosmetic Ingredient Database (CosIng), the function of sweet almond oil is “skin conditioning”.


  • Use 1% to 100%.
  • This product is oil-soluble, so it can’t be used in water-only products. However, small amounts can be used in water-based gels that hold it in suspension.
  • Organic sweet almond oil is heat stable, so it can be used in stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.
  • This oil blends well with all other vegetable oils. When making balms and ointments, it also works well with beeswax and rice bran wax.
  • For itchy skin, combine sweet almond oil with chickweed oil, marshmallow root oil, comfrey oil or St. John’s wort oil.

Organic Sweet Almond Oil Benefits in Skin Care

  • Suitable for all skin types but especially effective when used in products for dry skin.

  • Ideal to use in body wraps and scrubs that need some slip.

  • Blend with drier oils like rosehip seed oil and chia seed oil if using on oily skin.
  • Use in gels, creams, lotions, serums, cleansers, balms and ointments.

Organic Sweet Almond Oil Benefits in Hair Care

A really lovely base oil.

I am using the oil to experiment with, combining with calendula and a variety of herbs. I am using it all the time and am truly pleased with how it performs and feels on the skin. I will certainly re-order.
