Apricot Kernel Oil

Other Name(s):

Prunus armeniaca

Apricots originated in China but are now cultivated throughout the world - their seeds being particularly easy to transport over long distances. In South Africa, apricots are grown extensively in the Little Karoo which accounts for 78% of the entire nation’s annual production. Unfortunately, their soft flesh makes them an easy target for pest birds and insects and these crops are typically heavily sprayed.

Yes.

Apricot Kernel Oil is a natural ingredient with many benefits for body and beauty. It can be farmed sustainably using organic farming principles and is a valuable way to use what would otherwise be a waste product in the manufacturing of jams or preserves.
