Focus on Natural Oils for Skin: Hazelnut Oil!
Hazelnut is an oil that may not immediately come to mind for skin care – but it should! Can one oil actually be great for ALL skin types? Hazelnut may just be that oil.
 
Emerging from the flowers of the Hazel tree, these hazelnuts, also called filberts, are used to make pralines, liqueurs, butters and pastes (think Nutella), truffles as well as an oil that is truly wonderful for skin!
 
Considered a ‘dry’ oil because it is absorbed quickly and deeply and leaves no greasy residue, it is not only among the best oils for treating dry skin because it is very hydrating, helping to plump and smooth skin but is also considered a fantastic oil for oily skin because it helps regulate oil production and some use it to help control acne and blackheads! Its astringent qualities also help to shrink pores as well as smooth & tighten skin.
 
Hazelnut oil is a very gentle oil (like Grape Seed) that is recommended for sensitive skin. It is rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids and nutrients like Vitamin E for healthy skin as well as vital minerals like potassium, calcium and magnesium. These minerals are part of the reason it helps soften skin with regular use. It is recommended for treating sensitive, irritated skin and considered an anti-aging oil, regular use can help rejuvenate skin.
 
These qualities are why Alki Organix uses Hazelnut oil for facial serums formulas. Combined with Grape Seed oil plus essential oils and other oils like Tamanu & Avocado in Extra Care Serum, or Supercritical Extract of Rose-hip in Wild Roses Serum it makes the perfect food for healthy, radiant skin!
 
Great for your hair too! It’s often used in formulas for retaining color after treatments and to strengthen and condition hair after chemical treatments. Applying Hazelnut oil to hair prior to shampooing is said to help new color last longer. I don’t color my hair, but applying it before shampooing leaves my hair smooth and shiny!
