Sweet almond oil extract | Glyceryl oleate

Sweet Almond Oil Extract | Glyceryl Oleate


Glyceryl oleate is obtained from the fixed oil pressed from dried kernel of sweet seed of the almond tree (Prunus amygdalus).
The almond tree originated in the Middle East, and is highly revered in some cultures since biblical times as a symbol of watchfulness and promise due to the early flowering of the almond tree.  The almond is nutritionally dense with Vitamin E and is a rich source of oil, about two thirds of which is monounsaturated oleic acid (an omega-9 fatty acid) and another third, linoleic acid (a polyunsaturated omega-6 essential fatty acid).
The glyceryl oleate from almond oil is good for application to the skin as an emollient, and has been traditionally used by massage therapists to lubricate the skin during massage sessions.
