Ingredient We Love: Apricot Kernel Oil
Posted on September 13 2023
We’re obsessed with nature-derived ingredients, and that’s why they’re part of the foundation of our brand.
One of our favorites is Apricot Kernel Oil—also known as Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil—a type of oil cold-pressed from the dried seeds of the fruit of the apricot tree that is highly moisturizing, non-greasy, and quickly absorbed into skin. No wonder we use this plant powerhouse in our products! The secret of this botanical is that it’s a rich source of vitamins A, C and E, fatty acids, and anti-inflammatory compounds, which work to nourish and heal the skin. Simply said, Apricot Kernel Oil locks in moisture and gives your complexion a more healthy and radiant appearance. What’s not to love?
With far-reaching benefits including protecting your skin against toxins and bacteria, gently removing dead skin cells to lessen the appearance of blemishes and dark spots, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, balancing skin tone to create an even glow, and providing support for the skin barrier, this emollient oil is more than just an ordinary plant extract—it brings out the balanced and youthful glow your skin was meant to have. And it goes without saying that Apricot Kernel Oil is vegan and gluten-free.
