Organic Apricot Kernel Oil

Add to Personalized Shopping List

Our Organic Apricot Kernel Oil is cold expeller pressed from only carefully selected, certified organic kernels of Punus armeniaca, a small, cultivated apricot tree that is believed to originate from western Asia.

Organic Apricot Kernel Oil is a light yet highly emollient oil that absorbs rapidly into the skin. It is an unsaturated oil that is similar in texture and composition to that of Sweet Almond Oil. However, Organic Apricot Kernel Oil possesses a slightly higher composition of the omega-6 essential fatty acid Linoleic Acid.


Uses:

The oil helps to soften, soothe and protect the skin and leaves it feeling nourished and hydrated.

Customer Testimonial

"I have never written a thank you to a company before, but I just had to let you know that I am impressed with the items I received and the extreme speed in which I received them. It only took 2 days to receive my order from FNWL. That's amazing and is certainly a plus when trying to run my business. To compare, I placed an order with a different supplier 2 days before I placed my FNWL order. I received my FNWL order 5 days ago, but am still waiting to receive my order from the other supplier. Thank you."
