It is an excellent skin care oil specially for dry skin, for baby skin and for eye and lip care. The oil has a very similar profile to sweet almond oil.

Apricot kernel oil has a high content of phytosterols, mainly beta-sitosterol.
The oil shall both repair and nourish the skin. It is excellent for cold process emulsification and even for soap making (about 10-15%)
