Biochemica Almond Butter is derived from sweet almonds ( Prunus amygdalus dulcis ), specifically from the Mediterranean area, and is obtained by cold pressing of selected fruit seeds followed by a full refining process. The natural oil contains essential fatty acids, but also contains unsaponifiables as natural waxes/paraffins, which are collected during the refining and deodorization process. The butter is created by blending the almond oil with hydrogenated vegetable oils to produce a soft, light-colored butter with a mild odor and excellent melting properties suitable for skin care. In cosmetic preparations, the feel and behavior of Biochemica Almond Butter is somewhat similar to that of Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter.
Biochemica Almond Butter exhibits excellent spreadability on the skin, making it ideal as a massage butter or carrier for treatment products. It adds moisturizing attributes to creams, lotions and bar soaps. It may find use in cosmetics, toiletries, soaps, massage oils & balms, hair care and sun care preparations. Suggested use levels in balms: 5 – 100%, bar soaps: 3 – 6%, lotions & creams: 3 – 5% and hair conditioners: 2 – 5%.
