We use Apricot Kernel oil (Prunus armeniaca) in many of our products here at WiDEYE. Extracted from the soft fleshy center of the Apricot stone, this oil is an excellent moisturiser and carrier base for essential oils.
Skin and health
The high content of Oleic acid gives Apricot Kernel oil greater affinity with the skin compared to some other oils. This means that it is more easily absorbed which is why it is brilliant in moisturisers.
