Our Sweet Almond Oil is cosmetic grade & refined. Sweet Almond Oil is a light, non-greasy, moisturizing oil that absorbs easily into the skin. Therefore, sweet almond oil is frequently used in lip gloss recipes, massage oil recipes, lotion recipes, sugar scrub recipes, salt scrub recipes, and soap recipes.
Gallons are sold by volume and not weight. However, one gallon weighs approximtely 7.5 pounds.
