We recently caught up with Caudalie to find out why Sweet Almond oil is an essential ingredient for effective cleansing and gentle make-up removal and renewing brightness to stressed-out skin.

The Origins

Almond Oil has been used extensively for centuries due to its health benefits and worldwide recognition as a beauty aid. Its popularity stems from Southeast Asia and the Mediterranean where the Almond tree was first domesticated and where the oil was first extracted and credited with promoting skin health. Sweet Almond oil comes exclusively from edible almonds and is now widely used in skin and hair care products.

Benefits of Sweet Almond Oil

• Soothes and nourishes the skin • Deeply cleanses skin, dislodging dirt and impurities, preventing blackheads and imperfections • Suitable for use on sensitive skin and around the eyes • Light, nutty fragrance • Renews radiance to dull, tired and stress-out skin • Rich minerals aid hair growth (including eyelash growth)

Sweet Almond Oil in Cleansing

Caudalie’s 100% natural Make-up Removing Cleansing Oil contains a nourishing blend of vegetable and Sweet Almond oils (sourced in Spain) that deeply cleanse and remove makeup (even waterproof) from the face and eyes. The Sweet Almond oil is light in texture which allows it to easily penetrate deep into the skin, softening and dislodging dirt and impurities to leave skin fresh and clean. The Make-up Removing Cleansing Oil is suitable for use on all skin types from dry to combination and even sensitive skin due to the soothing properties of the Sweet Almond Oil around tender areas such as the eyes. Simply warm three pumps of the Make-up Removing Cleansing Oil in your palm and then massage onto dry skin. Allow your makeup to dissolve and then emulsify with water and wash away either using your hands or a hot cloth. The cleanser’s delicate Sweet Almond fragrance is pleasant to use and leaves skin feeling soft and refreshed. As well as providing deep cleansing, Sweet Almond Oil is famed for penetrating deep into skin cells where it gives radiance and renews brightness to dull, tired or stressed-out skin. Caudalie’s Vine Overnight Detox Oil can be used alone after cleansing or added to an overnight moisturiser for a detoxifying, nourishing and smoothing effect. This 100% natural formula contains Sweet Almond Oil as well as anti-oxidant grape-seed, regenerating rose hip, purifying neroli, soothing lavender and detoxifying carrot oils to renew & protect overtired skin while you sleep. This dry oil is ideal for skin exposed to stress, pollution, UV's & other free radicals.
