Apricot Kernel Carrier Oil, Light and easily absorbed, ideal for facial massage and facial products.

Apricot Kernel Oil

Extracted from the soft fleshy center of the Apricot stone, this oil is an excellent moisturiser and carrier base. The high content of Oleic acid gives Apricot greater affinity with the skin compared to some other oils which means that it is more easily absorbed.

Suitability

The refined grade of this oil is light in colour and odour making it ideal for incorporation into skin care products, it is particularly rich in both linoleic acid and Oleic acid.

A wonderful alternative to Sweet Almond & Grapeseed for massage and has some very beneficial skin benefits.

A wonderful oil for making your own Salt Scrubs and Massage Oils.
