Hazelnut oil, amazing beauty oil

Moisturizing and astringent action, useful in case of oily skin and acne prone skin, protects the skin from UV ray damages and aging
From cold pressing of hazelnuts, the fruits of hazel tree, scientific name Corylus avellana, an oil is extracted with interesting healthy properties and suitable both for cooking, as a dressing, and for cosmetic use. In this post we’ll speak about the use of hazelnut oil as a beauty oil. This oil has a composition similar to that of extra virgin olive oil, contains indeed high quantities of oleic acid, about 75%, linoleic acid, 9%, and smaller quantities of palmitic acid and stearic acid. In comparison with olive oil hazelnut oil contains three times more vitamin E, that is a powerful antioxidant and results useful to protect the skin from the damages caused by UV rays, by attenuating them (Korac et al, Pharmacogn Rev, Juk 2011 ). This oil is also moisturizing (Masson et al, Int J Cosmet Sci, Dec 1990), once applied on skin it doesn’t leave a grease effect and contains also powerful antioxidants, in addition to vitamin E, such as selenium, caffeic acid and phytosterols that counteract sun damages by inhibiting inflammations and hyperpigmentation and by restoring the functionality of the skin barrier and the right level of hydration (Terruzzi et al, J Oleo Sci, Oct 2018 – Stallings et al, J Clin Aesthet Dermatol, Jan 2009). Thanks to these characteristics hazelnut oil is an amazing product in case of dull skin, without tone, since it helps repair the skin and makes it fresh and elastic. This oil has also another interesting characteristic, it is in fact a source of tannins, powerful antioxidant substances with an astringent and anti inflammatory action. Thanks to these properties the hazelnut oil is perfect to be applied on oily skin and acne prone skin (Chia-Jung Li et al, Int J Mol Sci, Jan 2017). Indeed, it is non comedogenic, counteracts irritations and inflammations, protects the skin from external attacks and fights enlarged pores (Nakamura et al, Exp Dermatol, Aug 2018).
