Apricot Kernel Oil
Apricot kernel is the professional choice of carrier oil for hand and facial treatments. Crushed apricots have traditionally been used in face masks to soften the skin. The oil has exceptional revitalising, nourishing and moisturising properties and spreads easily across the skin, making it popular among masseurs. Rich in vitamins A and C, it penetrates the skin easily, so is excellent for all skin types.
Source: Prunus Armeniaca is grown commercially in Spain.
Extraction: Apricot Kernel Oil is cold pressed. The oil is expressed from the kernels of the Apricot.
Uses: Apricot Kernel Oil is very good for facial massages thanks to its fine and light texture and high absorbability. It may be used to enrich creams lotions and baths. It works well as a massage oil on its own but is even better when augmented by essential oils.
Caution: Keep out of eyes. For external use only.
