Apricot Kernel Oil

Hey Y'all!

I hope this post finds you doing well. Apricot Kernel Oil is found in several Cactus & Ivy products because it happens to be one of my favorite ingredients.

Apricot Kernel Oil - Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil - Originating from Asia, the apricot kernel is a transitory tree that can grow to 30 feet tall, withstands colder climates and the oil pressed from the kernels can be used in cooking.

An emollient oil high in oleic and linoleic acids, is light, penetrates the skin easily and is highly sought after for its skin softening properties. Apricot kernel oil prevents water evaporating from the skin, helps retain the elasticity of the skin, contains a high amount of vitamin E and provides great slip to massage oils. Flat out, it's a fabulous oil to incorporate into any skin care regiment for mature, dry, sensitive or troubled skin.

You can find Apricot Kernel Oil in Butter Me Up Body Balm, Citrus Mint Acai Body Glow, Lemonmint Body Bath & Massage Elixir, Blah Blah Lip Balm, Perk Up Lip Balm and Peppermint Tree Foot Balm.

Thanks for stopping by y'all and I hope you have a fabulous day!
