Botanical Name: Prunus armeniaca

Extraction Method: Cold Pressed

Processing Type: Refined

Obtained From: Kernel

Origin: Spain

Description: Apricot cosmetic grade oil is obtained from the kernel of the Apricot tree (Prunus armeniaca) by cold pressing, refining, and standardizing with non-GMO vegetable oils to enhance their oxidation stability. The refining and standardization process helps remove undesirable aroma and color, and helps to enhance the shelf life of the oil. This renders the product suitable for formulating products in the cosmetic industry without interference from odor and color.

Color: Clear light yellow liquid

Aromatic Description: Apricot Kernel Carrier Oil has very little scent characteristic of most carrier oils.

Common Uses: Apricot Kernel Carrier Oil is a very popular oil and is suitable for manufacturers, aromatherapists and massage therapists.

Consistency: Typical and Characteristic of Carrier Oils.

Absorption: Absorbs easily into the skin.

Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.

Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.

I bought this and the regular Apricot Kernel oil just to compare. There isn't much difference between the two; this is just a lot less expensive. The regular Apricot Kernel oil has a slightly more yellow tint and felt just a tiny bit thicker. Neither of them had any scent and both felt wonderful on my skin. It absorbs really nicely without feeling greasy or drying. They're both a really excellent choice for a basic carrier oil. I tried Sweet Almond oil from another company and didn't like it near as well. Apricot Kernel oil is my go-to "base" for a lot of my products. Love it!

This carrier oil has surpassed my expectations, I have been using it for two months in personal formulations eg. Hair conditioner, body butter and body scrubs. My skin tone is even and my hair is moisturized. This is affordable and effective.

Tellement économique pour la fabrication de savon, cette huile est merveilleusement douce et le format de 1000ml est pratique, j'achète le plus gros et je fais le plein.

This is my favourite carrier oil when I make lotion. It's light, absorbs quickly, and leaves your skin feeling soft without feeling tacky or greasy.
