Mana Beauty & Spirit - Almond Oil

Almond Oil

Softening/Protective and Balancing

Moisturizing and packed with vitamin E, almonds are traditionally regarded as having special healing and protecting properties, soothing the skin while also hydrating it. When applied to hair, it adds shine and softens the entire hair shaft.

Considered an effective beauty remedy by the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks, almond oil glides on and leaves the skin and hair silky smooth and radiant This is because it has a high vitamin E content, so it is softening and helps to protect the skin from pollutants and irritants. It has a fine texture so is easily absorbed, and its emollient properties mean it helps the skin to balance water loss and absorption of moisture. It is extracted by cold-pressing the kernels of sweet almonds (Prunus dulcis), part of the plum family. Ordinarily, heat would be applied, thus yielding a higher quantity. In cold-pressing, however, it is extracted at cooler temperatures and yields oil of a much higher quality.

Vitamins and Antioxidants

We use only 100% natural vitamins and antioxidants and whenever available also organic. we add extra pure vitamins & antioxidants to make them more effective.


Whenever there is both water and oil in a product there must also be an emulsifier, these are not yet available in organic form. We use only NON-GMO (from non genetically modified crops) plant based emulsifiers. You can see these in our ingredient list under the names of Cetearly Cetearly Glucoside and Xanthan Gum.


For all our foaming products we use only plant based soft detergents, they are not yet available organic but we are hoping it won’t be long before they are. In order to make them even softer on the skin we blend them with soothing Aloe Vera and organic oil blends


Our oils and balms are preservative free. However we use a scientific formulation in our face and hair serum. and in some of our formulations, natural preservatives do not offer same high assurance on keeping the microbial count to a minimum, to the extent that PE does. We want to keep our formulations intact so that when the consumer uses our products they remain pure once opened.

The official Material Safety Data on Phenoxyethanol (PE) states that it may cause irritations and long term exposure can be harmful. This data is based on exposure to undiluted PE, it is widely agreed that exposure to 100% concentrations of PE to be toxic… however the same goes for almost all active substances used in cosmetics. At 1% concentration within a topical skin product the amount of PE that penetrates the skin into the dermis layer is not significant enough to be considered harmful. This has been proved on clinical tests published by the US National Library (link bellow). This is possibly why PE is the chosen preservative for Vaccines and Intravenous medicines in America and across the world.

At Mana we are still looking for a natural preservative that is proven to be safe and effective. We use natural preservatives for many of our formulations but choose PE as our preservative system for some of products that contain water. This is because PE has a broad spectrum antimicrobial activity against bacteria, yeasts, and moulds… all the things you don’t want in your products. It is also, in our view, the least toxic.
