Prunus Armeniaca I.
Apricot oil, also referred to as apricot kernel oil, is derived from the kernels of the apricot fruit, known by the botanical name Prunus armeniaca. This oil is obtained through cold-pressing of the kernels to extract a light, non-greasy oil that is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins A and E, and antioxidants.
The botanical name Prunus armeniaca belongs to the Rosaceae family, which includes several other fruits such as cherries, peaches, and plums. This deciduous tree is native to Central Asia and is widely cultivated in various regions across the world, including Europe, Asia, and North America.
Apricot oil is a versatile carrier oil that is used extensively in the cosmetic industry for its nourishing, moisturizing, and protective properties. It is used in various skincare and hair care products, such as moisturizers, facial serums, hair conditioners, and massage oils. Its high content of oleic and linoleic acids makes it an excellent emollient that helps to hydrate and soften the skin, while its antioxidant properties help to protect the skin and hair from damage caused by free radicals.
