Walnut Oil is a precious ingredient in anti-aging treatments and particular lotions for dry or dehydrated skin .Walnuts (Juglans regia) originate in Asia Minor and Greece. Oil is 100 percent pure and abundant in antioxidant compounds that enable a particular anti-radical action, which is crucial for preventing skin stress and early aging. The high concentration of essential fatty acids, particularly linoleic and linolenic acids, contributes to the maintenance of the hydrolipidic film of the skin and ensures a potent moisturizing and calming effect. In reality , the epidermis's physiological health depends on the hydrolipidic film's stability.

Walnut oil is a clear, light-coloured oil with a delicate flavour and aroma that has a faint nutty flavour. It has a lot of polyunsaturated fats. It contains 60% linoleic acid and 20% oleic acid (both omega 6 fatty acids). The only nuts with a considerable level of Omega 3 (linolenic acid) are walnuts. Omega 3 contains anti-inflammatory properties and supports the maintenance of soft, young-looking skin.

Its oil also contains topical vitamin E, which has been demonstrated to have a number of positive effects on the skin. As a free radical captor, vitamin E shields cells from damage caused by free radicals by neutralizing them. It is very moisturizing and nourishing because it contains Omega 6,It has interesting dietary properties thanks to its Omega-3 content, which is rare in todays diets. Used also as a seasoning agent to flavour dishes and salads.

Walnut Oil is a limpid, light-coloured oil, delicate in flavour and scent, with a slightly nutty quality.
