Info and interesting facts:
One of the most highly unsaturated oils (more than 90%), Hazelnut oil is absorbed fast and penetrates deeply into the skin. This oil has a reputation for offering protection, regeneration, softening and hydration to all types of skins. Notorious for its stability and ease of use, this is a multitasking oil loved by sensitive skin and ideal for combination types. Hazelnut oil is slightly astringent, non-comedogenic and sebum balancing, all qualities that are perfect for oily skins. Hazelnut oil is a neutral carrier oil, often used in place of sweet Almond oil, in massages and essential oils dilutions. It is no wonder that many in the cosmetic industry have chosen Hazelnut oil as a base for their formulas. Hazelnut oil leaves the skin feeling silky, deeply nourished, with no greasy residue.
