There are two types of almond (sweet and bitter), we use the sweet one. The almond is a fruit and a part of the plum family. The almond tree is a medium-sized tree, native to the Middle East and North Africa. Its white blossom is captivating and beautiful, inspiring many legends.
The almond nuts are coarsely ground to a give a soft, floury texture.
Ground almonds are highly effective as they are gently exfoliating. They 'polish' the skin, improving skin tone and colour. Ground almonds are in one of our best-selling products, Angels On Bare Skin. This product is very often the number one best seller in Japan.
Ground almonds also feature in our Buffy body butter to exfoliate and smooth the skin.
