naturally high levels of of Oleic acid in Hazelnut Oil for skin rejuvenation

Hazelnut Oil, the small nut rich in Oleic acid

Hazelnut oil is cold pressed and filtered from the shell-free nuts of the hazelnut shrub.

The Hazelnut shrub will typically grow to 8 meters tall, though they can grown up to 15 meters in height.

The nuts are harvested annually in mid-autumn when the nuts naturally fall from the tree.

Hazelnut has a mild scent and is the perfect base oil for creams and skin preparations.

Hazelnut oil Contains Oleic acid and a small proportion of linoleic acid to quickly rejuvenate the skins surface.

Skin Suitability of Hazelnut Oil

Hazelnut is an excellent medium to utilise the power of essential oils. Essential Oils readily blend with Hazelnut to create sophisticated blends with wonderful feel and softness properties.

The high level of tannins found in Hazelnut oil not only provide powerful antioxidant properties but make the oil astringent and toning, helping to dry out oily skin whilst cleansing and shrinking the skin’s pores.

Hazelnut is typically found in face care products, where the immediate softening effect on the skin is quickly felt.
