Apricot Kernel Oil



Much like the delicious fruit that it comes from, apricot kernel oil is a healthy way to heal and moisturise the skin. Apricot kernel oil is made from the seeds of apricot fruits after they are harvested. These seeds carry powerful health benefits, like natural anti-inflammatories and moisturisers. In addition, it makes it a powerful moisturiser without leaving greasy aftertouch.

How to use this item:

1. Use as a cleanser   

After washing your face with warm water, apply about ½ teaspoon of apricot oil to the face and massage before washing the oil off. 

2. Use as a moisturiser 

To lock in moisture, use a drop or two of apricot oil on freshly cleansed skin. It is excellent as a moisturiser.  

3. Use in customisable creams, lotions, soaps, etc
