Apricot oil, or apricot kernel oil, is a popular ingredient in the world of organic cosmetics because of its numerous benefits for the skin and hair.

Discover in this article everything that apricot oil, a true treasure of nature, can bring you.

How is apricot oil obtained?

It is the kernel of the fruit of the apricot tree which makes it possible to obtain an oil with exceptional virtues . For this, the kernels are cold pressed . This is the best extraction method to obtain a wonderful elixir that retains the maximum of natural properties, while obtaining a 100% pure oil. Of course, the oil is then filtered to remove residue and impurities.

Apricot oil has been used for centuries , whether in Central Asia, then among the Greeks and Romans.

Always opt for organic oils to offer your skin the best that nature has to offer.

The properties of apricot oil

Apricot oil nourishes, tones and protects the epidermis . It is rich in vitamin A and E, as well as omega 6 and 9 and essential fatty acids, such as linoleic acid and oleic acid. It therefore has an antioxidant action which slows down cellular aging and helps the skin maintain its radiance and youthfulness for longer. Apricot oil helps restore elasticity and tone to the epidermis: it is a real anti-aging ally !

Apricot kernel oil helps brighten the face and restore radiance . We particularly recommend it for dull and tired skin. Applied before exposure to the sun, it helps prepare the skin thanks to its carotenoid content, which helps stimulate melanin synthesis.

Finally, it has a light and non-greasy texture, which makes its application pleasant on the skin and hair . It is particularly suitable for dry and sensitive skin, or skin suffering from eczema or skin irritations.

Good to know : pure apricot oil is not recommended for very oily or acne-prone skin because it can be comedogenic.
