Description: Apricot kernel oil, derived from the kernels of apricots, is believed to offer various potential benefits for skincare.
  • Moisturisation: Apricot oil is thought to be a good moisturiser for the skin, helping to keep it hydrated and soft.
  • Nourishment: It may provide essential nutrients to the skin, promoting a healthy and radiant complexion.
  • Lightweight: Apricot oil is typically lightweight and easily absorbed, making it suitable for various skin types, including oily and combination skin.
  • Skin softening: Regular use of apricot oil may help soften rough and dry skin.
While apricot oil has these potential benefits, individual responses may vary. Before using apricot oil on the skin, it's advisable to perform a patch test and consult with a skincare professional, especially if you have known allergies or skin sensitivities.
Apricot kernel oil spreads well making it a good massage oil. It is very similar to peach kernel oil.
