Apricot Kernel Oil – Certified Organic*
Apricot Kernel Oil is an excellent all-rounder oil that is highly nourishing, readily absorbed and well suited to all skin types (particularly dry, sensitive and mature skin). Often likened to Almond Sweet oil, Apricot Kernel Oil has a lot to offer when it comes to skin care.
Rich in essential fatty acids (oleic and linoleic), it also contains high levels of vitamins A and E, making it effective in after sun care products. Also did you know Apricot kernel oil is rich in Vitamin K, which is known to reduce dark circles?
Apricot Kernel Oil is effective to help soothe inflamed, irritated, chapped and dry skin, and acts as an excellent skin moisturiser. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it great for reducing signs of eczema and psoriasis, helping to decrease redness and itchiness – For best results, apply directly out of the shower (while skin is still soft).
It is a popular carrier oil, commonly used in creams, lotions, ointments, butters and balms, as well as soaps, bath oils and massage oils. Being a light and easy oil to work with makes it very suitable as a base for body and facial oils.

I love this oil. I use it plain on my face at night and my lines under my eyes have reduced dramatically. Works better than any expensive eye creams have in the past. I also mix it with some rose geranium oil for an amazing body oil which smells divine! Great quality oil. Very affordable too and my skin feels amazing!
