The Benefits of Apricot Kernel Oil


Hi There!
Its Eva here and I’m back again to inform you about the skincare oil of the month. This month, we are featuring apricot kernel oil. This oil is cold-pressed from the seed of the apricot fruit. It has been known to be great for skincare and believe it or not, it is also good for baking. I always say that if it is healthy to eat, it’s good to put on your skin too. Apricot kernel oil has been known to be similar to almond oil because they both have a sweet yet bitter taste to them and they are similar in consistency.

Apricot kernel oil is well suited for skincare because it is a fabulous carrier oil. What is a carrier oil you ask? Well, a carrier oil is used as a base with other oils and possibly aromatherapy essential oils to allow them to spread much easier on the skin. You see, apricot kernel oil is light enough that it is readily absorbed into the skin without any sign of greasiness. With that aspect, it is great for skincare and minor skin conditions like eczema. Apricot kernel oil is also mild enough that you can use it everyday on those with sensitive skin and the elderly.

Apricot kernel oil contains essential fatty acids, oleic and linoleic. It also contains vitamins A and E that aid in the soothing of skin conditions by providing moisture and improving the signs of aging. Apricot kernel oil is used to provide flexibility and moisture back into dehydrated skin types. This oil can be found in all sorts of skincare items such as lotions, creams, balms, soaps, and massage oils. When searching for the highest quality apricot oil, keep in mind that the best ones are rich in color and scent.
