Apricot Kernel Oil organic


Apricot kernel oil is a mild, light-yellow oil of slightly nutly adour. Our apricot kernel oil is gained from sweet apricot kernels.

Special Characteristics

Rich in oleic acid

Application Cosmetics

Apricot kernel oil is used as a base for skin care products because of its rich content of oleic and linoleic acid. This mild oil is mild, hardly greasing and absorbed quickly and so especially suitable for mature and sensitive skin. Apricot kernel oil has a reputation for giving the skin a healthy glow.

The cosmetics industry values apricot kernel oil because of its moisturizing, nurturing and soothing effect. In addition apricot kernel oil strengthens skin tissue, activates the metabolism and supports cell recovery.

Apricot kernel oil is used in shampoos, anti-aging compounds, after-sun lotions, massage oils and babycare products.

The nurturing properties of our Apricot kernel oil were confirmed in a cosmetic study by Dr. Hauck R & D GmbH in October 2015. The results may be requested from us.

Application Food

In the kitchen apricot kernel oil is used for desserts and pastries.
