Almond

Plant profile

Almond is a word that we associate with all sorts of different things: snow and candlelight, marzipan and macaroons, snacks of nuts and raisins or breakfast muesli. In our mind's eye, we always picture the edible almond kernel, but what about the plant that goes with it? More

Tinted Day Cream ingredients

Almond oil supplements the rich Tinted Day Cream formulation and additional raw materials round off the overall composition. With valuable avocado and almond oils, protective rose wax and quince seeds, Tinted Day Cream sustainably prevents the skin from drying out.

Why is almond oil used as an ingredient in Dr. Hauschka products?

The almond oil pressed from the seeds is a mild and highly lipogenous skin care oil. It is wonderfully absorbed by the skin, leaving it silky soft and smooth. The vitamin-rich almond oil is extremely well tolerated by the skin. As the almond oil regulates moisture levels, it can be used for both dry and oily skin. It even optimally nourishes sensitive skin. Almond oil enhances the skin’s elasticity for toned, radiant results.

*from natural essential oils

Almond oil is extremely well tolerated, highly moisturising and therefore suitable for use on very dry and sensitive skin conditions. It leaves the skin feeling pleasantly soft and smooth.

Mandel - Dr.Hauschka

Almonds already grew naturally in the Stone Age and their cultivation is thought to go back to the Bronze Age.

Mandel - Dr.Hauschka

The almond is probably the oldest cultivated fruit of the Old World, with a success story that continues right up to the present day.

Mandel - Dr.Hauschka

In Mediterranean countries, the almond tree is seen as a symbol of vigilance and rebirth because it blossoms as early as January.

In 2014/2015, over 1 million tonnes of almonds were produced globally.

Almond

Plant profile

Almond is a word that we associate with all sorts of different things: snow and candlelight, marzipan and macaroons, snacks of nuts and raisins or breakfast muesli. In our mind's eye, we always picture the edible almond kernel, but what about the plant that goes with it?

The up to eight-metre high almond tree with its grey bark belongs to the rose family and is thus closely related to the cherry, peach, apricot and rose. We can see this relationship, which many are unaware of, when we look at the pink flowers with yellow stamens that appear as early as January in Mediterranean countries.

Incidentally: the almond kernel we eat is actually the almond seed which is inside the hard shell or pit. The robust pit is enclosed in the dry, green, bitter and inedible fruit.

We keep the supply routes for Dr. Hauschka products as short as possible by using organically certified almonds from Alicante and Albacete in Spain. We also predominantly acquire almonds cultivated using Demeter farming. These are only of the best, edible quality and ready for the oil to be carefully pressed out of them at body temperature for use in our products. Every year, almost 46 tonnes of almonds are processed for our products.
