Skin care benefits of apricot kernel oil soothe skin irritation apricot kernel oil

The oil is obtained by cold pressing it from the seed kernels of the fruit of Prunus armeniaca – apricots.

It is particularly helpful for dry, dehydrated, delicate, mature and sensitive skin, and it helps to soothe inflammation while increasing skin elasticity and suppleness. This finely textured oil spreads easily and is particularly rich in both oleic acid and linoleic acid.

The moisturizing, nourishing and revitalizing properties of apricot kernel oil combine well to make an excellent cosmetic ingredient.

It contains vitamin A, E and others as well as minerals and is great to soften, moisturize and soothe older or irritated skin and has a general antioxidant effect which helps to fight premature aging.
