Cosmetics

  • The oil’s characteristic balance of mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids makes it an excellent choice for cosmetic formulas
  • Because it is high in linoleic acid, Pistachionut Oil contributes to ceramide synthesis and regenerative processes in the skin. This improves the skin’s ability to retain water, thus reducing transepidermal water loss (TEWL)
  • The oleic acid in Pistachionut Oil has a fluidising effect on the membranes of skin cells, thus making it easier for cosmetic active ingredients to penetrate deeply into the skin
  • Because of its moisturising effect, it is very well suited for use in sunscreen and after-sun products, as an emollient and in nail care products
  • The composition of Pistachionut Oil is similar to that of Almond Oil

Background

Pistachionut Oil is obtained from the seeds of the pistachio tree. The seeds are greenish, three-sided and measure approx. 20 cm in length. Pistacia Vera is a deciduous tree that grows 2-4 metres high. It has pinnate leaves and deep roots. Because it can survive with little water, it is ideal for dry and desert-like regions. The seeds have a fatty oil content of 50-58 % and have a mild, aromatic flavour. Pistachio trees are primarily grown in Iran, the United States and Turkey.
