Apricot Kernel oil is rich in essential fatty acids, oleic and linoleic acid and is known for its ability to penetrate the skin without leaving an oily feel.
Its moisturising and revitalising properties are also popular in products for dry, ageing, sensitive or inflamed skins.
It's also very good for facial massages thanks to its fine and light texture and high absorbability.
It works well as a massage oil on its own but is even better when augmented by essential oils.
Prunus armeniaca Kernel Oil is the fixed oil expressed from the
kernels of the Apricot, Prunus armeniaca L., Rosaceae.
Vitamins A and C.

"Most carrier oils are simply used for lubrication, but a few have therapeutic properties of their own, which can be chosen to complement those of the essential oils used with them. For example, peach kernel and apricot kernel oil... are all rich and nourishing and help dry and ageing skins" - an excerpt from Aromatherapy an A - Z by Patricia Davis.
