Organic Apricot Kernel Oil has a light texture and so is useful to use on hands, face and hair.
It is especially beneficial for dry, mature or sensitive skin.
Particularly suitable for nourishing the skin because of its high content of A, B & E vitamins. Vitamin E is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants and helps to combat free radicals.
Extracted from the soft fleshy centre of the apricot stone, this oil is an excellent moisturiser and carrier base. The high content of oleic acid gives apricot great affinity with the skin, which means that it is easily absorbed, making it an excellent moisturiser and carrier oil.
Apricot Kernel oil is excellent for skin protection, since it is both emollient and nourishing. It is beneficial in relieving the itchiness caused by eczema and is most suitable for sensitive skin, dry and aging skins.
Apricot Kernel oil is expressed from the seed of the apricot.
FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY.
"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, apricot kernel and particularly avocado oil are all rich and nourishing and help dry and ageing skins" - an excerpt from Aromatherapy an A - Z by Patricia Davis.
