Ingredient Highlight: Apricot

Updated: May 13, 2019

Latin name: Prunus armeniaca Apricot oil (also referred to as apricot kernel oil) is cold pressed from dried seeds of the apricot tree fruit. It is rich in fatty acids and vitamins A, B, C, and E which aid in rejuvenating skin cells. Apricot oil provides good slip and lubricity to a product.


Apricot oil absorbs into the skin very easily without leaving a greasy residue. It is very gentle and is excellent for dry, itchy skin, wonderful for softening the delicate skin around the eye and on the throat and is also recommended for mature and sensitive skin. It may help smooth and compress the skin. Because it is gentle and absorbs well, it makes a great massage oil that’s suitable for most people and ages.
