Organic Apricot Kernel Oil
Botanical / INCI name (EU) - Prunus Armeniaca
Apricot kernels have an oil content of 40-50%. The oil is similar to almond oil and peach oil, both of which are also extracted from the kernels of the respective fruit. The seed cake is also used separately to extract the essential oil, which contains Amygdalin - a colorless crystalline glucoside. This virgin oil is specific because it contains vitamins B15, B17, and B19 which are not contained in any other oil. Above all, it is a very efficient remedy- it stimulates the formation of red blood cells. In addition, it contains big amounts of potassium, unsaturated fatty acids – palmitic acid, palmitoleic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B, B12, B15, B17 (laetrile), B19, A, C and F. It has beneficial effects on the treatment of eyesight and helps against heart-function disorders. As for cosmetics, it contributes to the hydration of the skin and is recommended for treating the skin of newborns and little babies.
