Apricot kernel oil

The apricot tree is a fruit-bearing tree from the Rosaceae family. Apricot oil is made by pressing the kernels contained within the seed shells. The word apricot is derived from an Arabic term, albarquq, meaning "early", since the apricot tree blooms very early in the spring.

Apricot kernel oil is very rich in oleic acid, which has emollient properties. It makes the skin soft, supple, and more radiant. It also contains linoleic acid (omega-6). This fatty acid is essential, because the human body cannot synthesize it. It is known for the important role it plays in the structure of cell membranes. This oil reduces transepidermal water loss by restoring the hydrolipidic film.

Apricot kernel oil has regenerative properties, acting as an excellent skin moisturizer and fighting against skin ageing. This oil can be added to massage and skincare products to add a touch of radiance to all skin types.
