The products in the Almond Blossom Soft Skin line are some of Kneipp's best-sellers. The special care for dry and sensitive skin, the most successful skin care series, is available in the Kneipp online shop.
Sweet almond oil should occupy a prominent position amongst the oils in a home medicine chest.
In the early 1990s, the Nourishing Bath Oil Almond Blossom Soft Skin was the first product. Since then, Kneipp has continuously adapted the formulas for the products in the series according to the latest dermatological knowledge. One thing has remained: the high percentage of sweet almond oil, the velvety soft feel of the skin and the soft floral fragrance.
Special care to balance the skin
The Almond Blossom Soft Skin series was developed as special care for dry and sensitive skin. For this reason, when selecting ingredients, Kneipp paid particular attention to nourishing and moisturizing substances and also to very good tolerance and a low likelihood of triggering allergies.
The products in the Almond Blossom Soft Skin skin care series care for dry and sensitive skin with lipids and moisture, prevent skin irritation, reduce feelings of tightness and restore the skin's natural balance.
Effective ingredients for beautiful skin
Carefully selected nourishing and active substances are the secret of our nourishing formula:
- Almond oil
Almond oil is one of the main ingredients of our nourishing Almond Blossoms Soft Skin formula. It has a range of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids that are ideal for skin and which improve the function of the skin barrier and stabilize its structure. In this way, almond oil supports the moisture balance of the skin and has a skin-calming, regenerating effect. It is rapidly absorbed and is even well tolerated by sensitive skin – and for this reason, it is ideal for baby care.
Whether sun, wind, cold temperatures or unsuitable cleansers – our skin is exposed to numerous forms of stress which damage its protective barrier. Products containing phytosterols regenerate and stabilize the skin's barrier function when it has gotten out of balance. Particularly high amounts of phytosterols (plant-based sterols) are found in plant-based oils and butters – and thus also in the Almond Blossoms Soft Skin skin care series.
- Shea butter
Shea butter is included in the Almond Blossoms Soft Skin skin care series as a skin-smoothing and moisture-retaining component. It consists of 50 percent fat with a high proportion of unsaponifiables. For this reason, it stays on the skin for a long time, protecting it and making it feel soft and supple. It is also known to be very well tolerated.
Glycerin is a substance used in cosmetic products to maintain the skin's moisture. Kneipp only uses glycerin from plant sources. In the products in the Almond Blossoms Soft Skin series, the concentration of glycerin is specially tailored to the needs of dry and sensitive skin. As a result, the effects of glycerin can best develop and provide increased moisture to the skin, have a skin-calming effect and support the protective layer of the skin, also known as the skin barrier.
- Vitamin E
In the Almond Blossoms Soft Skin skin care series, we use the active substance vitamin E in its stabilized form as tocopherol acetate. After application, it is transformed in the skin into its active form tocopherol and demonstrates excellent antioxidant effects. Vitamin E protects the skin from free radicals and counteracts photoaging of the skin. The cosmetic effect also includes increasing moisture retention and smoothening the surface of the skin. Vitamin E is ideal for dry and sensitive skin because of its excellent barrier-stabilizing and thus moisturizing effect.
The wound-healing and regenerating effect of panthenol is widely known. It also has excellent cosmetic properties: It increases the moisture retention of the skin, strengthens the barrier function and thus has a smoothing effect. In addition, the D-panthenol used in Kneipp products has an anti-inflammatory and itch-relieving effect – it is thus ideally suited for caring for sensitive and dry skin.
