High-quality MANDEL OIL

Oil extraction

Almond oil can be produced from both bitter and sweet almonds. For oil extraction, the cold pressing method is usually used; however, sweet almonds are also suitable for hot pressing.

First, the almonds are cleaned of impurities and their shells. The pre-cleaned seed is gently preheated to pressing temperature and then fed to a screw press. The obtained products, almond oil and almond press cake are immediately processed. The press cake is crushed and cooled before being transferred for further processing or storage. The oil obtained is usually purified to pure oil in several purification stages (coarse filtration, fine filtration, safety filtration).

Or, alternatively, after pressing, the oil is left to stand for several days to allow mucilaginous components to settle, which are then removed using filter presses. After cold pressing, the oil can be refined or used in its natural state. However, essential almond oil is only obtained from bitter almonds, which is why it is also called bitter almond oil.

Characteristics and shelf life

Good almond oil should be clear, slightly yellowish, runny and nearly odorless. It can, however, give off a mildly nutty, faint vanilla note. The flavor is reminiscent of almonds and is mild and oily. The oil also usually has a mildly nutty, slightly sweet aroma. Almond oil can be heated to a temperature of 220° C. The solidification point lies in the range of -10 to -20°C. Almond oil is comprised of around 78% oleic acid, up to around 17% linoleic acid, and up to 5% palmitic acid. Besides containing a small amount of myristic acid, almond oil also contains potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, sulphur, iron, sodium, glutamine, sterols and also vitamins A, B and E. The advantage of this oil is that it features a high content of water soluble vitamins and secondary plant substances, as well as a small percentage of saturated fatty acids. Beyond this, it is usually also well-tolerated by many nut allergy sufferers. 

The oil should be stored in a cool and dark location in order to avoid turning rancid. Under such conditions, its shelf life can last around 12 months.

Almond oil in cosmetics – a true miracle cure for skin and hair!

Almond oil has a wide range of uses in the field of cosmetics. It is often described as one of the most precious oils for skin care and as an “all-round cosmetic”. For example, it is used in the production of skin and massage oils, oil baths, ointments, lip balms, baby care products, face and oil packs and also for hair care products. According to the “Lexikon der pflanzlichen Öle und Fette”, almond oil is an ideal skin oil as it not only has a pleasant smell but is also quickly absorbed by the skin and moisturizes it.

Almond oil is therefore used in cosmetics to relieve irritation and pain, stimulate circulation and moisturize, but also serves as a light, natural UV filter.
