A Discussion on Hazelnut Oil

Hazelnuts in general tend to be enjoyed as a mid-afternoon snack and offer a range of healthy fats, proteins and vitamins that can do wonders for our body. It is these fats that are able to be pressed from the nuts in order to create a compound known as hazelnut oil. This oil holds a range of benefits and the team here at Buddha Beauty have included it as part of our pure oils range! In this blog, we’re going to discuss everything there is to know about hazelnut oil…

  • Hazelnut oil has a large amount of essential fatty acids, including linoleic acid which is why it is considered such an amazing moisturiser. In fact, due to this characteristic it is also an emollient, which means that it is able to rehydrate the skin.

  • Many people know little about hazelnut oil besides its properties as a moisturiser, however it can also be used as a form of sunscreen because it cleverly filters always the harmful rays of the sun. It is such a good UV protector that you will see hazelnut oil listed on the back of most sunscreen bottles.
