The delightful oil of the apricot kernel is rich in natural compounds that prevent the first signs of ageing, while also soothing and moisturising the skin. It is an excellent oil for mature, sensitive, and dry skin.
We purchase apricot stones from a local producer of dried apricots. Normally the stones would be thrown away, but we give them a second life in the production of apricot oil. We break the stones by hand to release the nutritious apricot kernels hide within. We place the kernels in a cold-press machine which exerts enough force on them to produce a light oil while preserving the highest quantity of phytonutrients present in the apricot kernels.
Apricot oil is phenomenal for sensitive, dry, and mature skin types. The high content of omega-9 acid present in apricot oil makes it an extremely nourishing moisturizer, which is excellent for dry skin but should be avoided by those with oily skin types. A touch of omega-6 is also present in the oil, which soothes skin that is prone to redness and sensitivity. Vitamin E and a collection of phytosterols provide skin rejuvenation and antioxidant protection, to prevent premature ageing.
