Hazelnut oil comes from the hazel bush fruit. We speak here of a light and very rapidly absorbing oil with a mild astringent effect and therefore is used for problematic skin with widened pores. It is rich with vitamins and essential fatty acids. Owing to the phytosterol contents it regulates sebum secretion making the skin softer and more moisturized. It’s possible to use it for massages because it is very rapidly absorbed. Accordingly, it is considered highly adequate as an addition in formulations meant for oily and problematic skin. As it is easily absorbed, it is desirable in aromatherapy as an essential oil carrier. It is used for preparations meant for massages, creams, lotions, soaps and for hair care.
