Hazelnut Carrier Oil

Hazelnut Carrier Oil

Cold Pressed. Due to its very high content of Vitamin E, Hazelnut Oil delivers excellent moisturising and skin-softening benefits together with rapid absorption, making it exceptional for facial treatments. It is a great emollient and protects against moisture loss and has a stimulating action on the capillary system.

When used as a carrier oil in aromatherapy massage, Hazelnut Oil provides excellent lubrication without feeling excessively oily. It is rich in polyphenols and flavinoids which contribute towards it having a dry feeling on the skin, together with the added benefit of providing astringent properties.

This astringency means it is also an effective skin tonic that helps to regenerate cells, tighten and tone skin, and strengthen surface capillaries. Therefore Hazelnut Oil can be a very good choice for oily and acne prone skin types, as well as sensitive and baby skin.

Hazelnut Oil contains a high proportion of linoleic acid, which is an essential fatty acid that works to maintain the integrity of the outer layer of the skin. In addition to its high levels of Vitamin E (only sunflower oil contains a higher concentration) it is also contains Vitamins A and B.

I have been buying essential oils and carrier oils from Quinessence for some time now. I am very happy with the quality of the oils and the delivery service. I use the oils for skin care products and general well being. I even buy essential oils for my parents. I have recommended Quinessence to friends and colleagues. There should be more companies like Quinessence. Thank you!
