What does apricot kernel oil contain that is good for the skin?
Apricot kernel oil is bursting with benefits. Its unique and precious composition makes it a real multitasker for your skin. The oil is full of fatty acids – especially linoleic acid and oleic acid, which keep the skin beautifully supple and elastic. The high proportion of oleic acid, an essential unsaturated omega-9 fatty acid, makes it particularly effective. Other components include vitamins E and A, niacinamide – a form of vitamin B3 – and carotene. Cold-pressed apricot kernel oil is obtained using a particularly gentle method, so you can be sure that all the powerful substances reach your skin.
What effect does apricot kernel oil have on the skin?
Apricot kernel oil protects and soothes the skin. It is also very light and absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy film. The unsaturated fatty acids help your skin retain more moisture. Linoleic acid promotes the regeneration of your skin barrier and leaves your complexion looking fresher – a secret weapon in combatting dull skin. Vitamins E and A are powerful antioxidants and protect the skin against premature ageing. This is why apricot kernel oil is found in many products for mature. Even if you tend to have blemished skin this oil is the one for you. Another benefit of this precious oil is that it helps counteract sun damage, making it a helpful ingredient in sun care products.
