The Romans referred to the almond as the ""Greek nut"", as apparently the Greeks were the first to cultivate it. Fresh almonds are shaken down from trees in summer, while dry almonds, or almonds in their shells, are gathered in autumn.
Almonds used in vegetable oil come from Spain, Italy and Sicily
Because the sweet almond contains essential fatty acids and unsaponifiables, it has moisturizing, regenerating and restructuring properties. With excellent nourishing properties, it softens and revitalizes the skin.
