Peanut Oil



Peanut oil, also known as groundnut oil or Arachis oil, is obtained from the seeds of the Arachis hypogaea plant of the Fabaceae family. When used externally, peanut oil hydrates and moisturises the skin. It helps repair the skin and is loaded with antioxidants, such as vitamin E and resveratrol, a substance also contained in grapes, wine and cranberries, which gives the product anti-inflammatory and antimutagenic properties.
