Sweet Almonds are the almonds that we typically eat. The almonds are pressed – much like olives – to create the oil, which can then be used as a skin care ingredient or even for culinary uses. Contrary to popular knowledge, the almond is not a nut but actually a drupe, or what is called a “stone fruit,” like a peach that grows with a soft fleshy outer shell surrounding a hard inner shell with a seed inside. Presently, the largest producer of almonds is USA, most of which comes from the state of California. Spain too is known for its high quality almonds.
