Organic Apricot Kernel Oil
Organic Apricot Kernel Oil is anti-ageing, antioxidant, and antibacterial, but not everyone can, and should, use this oil for facial use.
Organic Apricot Kernel Oil is also anti-inflammatory.
Wild As The Wind recommend Organic Apricot Kernel Oil for bodily use rather than facial, especially for improving the appearance of tanned legs.
Organic Apricot Kernel Oil For Skincare
Organic Apricot Kernel Oil is very high in omega 9, or oleic acid. The oleic acid content of Organic Apricot Kernel Oil is approximately 70%.
Omega 9 makes Organic Apricot Kernel Oil very hydrating and anti-inflammatory. However, even though Organic Apricot Kernel Oil only has a comedogenic value of 2 this oil is not as easily absorbed as other oils, such as oils like Organic Sweet Almond Oil.
The comedogenic value on an oil indicates the ease at which the skin absorbs an oil and how likely it is to clog pores. The lower the value, the more easily an oil will be absorbed.
Organic Apricot Kernel Oil Uses
Organic Apricot Kernel Oil, despite it’s reasonably low comedogenic value can still clog pores quite easily on facial skin and should definitely be avoided for facial use by those with acne-prone skin + combination skin + sensitive skin.
Organic Apricot Kernel Oil is also high in linoleic acid at around 23%
Organic Apricot Kernel Oil tends to leave a high sheen on skin after application, and it’s my go-to oil for shimmering legs in summer.
