Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil
The revitalizing effects of apricot oil for skin are due in part that it's lipid content is very similar to that of skin, making it very effective for soothing skin that is dry, rough and irritated. It is a deeply penetrating oil and can help with minimizing the appearance of fine lines, while its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties arrest free radicals and prevent cellular damage. The healthiest version of this very fine oil is organic, cold-pressed (not solvent extracted) and stored in opaque containers. Its rich fatty acid profile, primarily oleic and linoleic acids, makes it powerfully emollient. In addition to healthy fats, apricot it is also very rich in vitamin E, and contains vitamins A and C also beneficial for skin health.
