Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil

Also-called-like-this: Apricot Kernel Oil
What-it-does: emollient
Irritancy: 0
Comedogenicity: 1-2


The emollient plant oil coming from the kernel (the seed of the seed) of the delicious apricot fruit. Like other plant oils, it contains antioxidant vitamin E and nourishing fatty acids (mostly oleic acid 54-74%, linoleic acid 12-35%).

It's a nice general purpose emollient, has nourishing and moisturizing properties (as a high oleic oil it's ideal for dry skin types) and is quite easily absorbed into the skin.
