Apricot kernel oil is very similar to sweet almond oil although it is more expensive as it is produced in smaller quantities. The tree originated in China (apricot kernels are used in
traditional Chinese medicine) and was brought to the Middle East and then by the Romans to Southern Europe. The oil is obtained by cold pressing the kernels and contains vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids. Apricot kernel oil is used in many cosmetic products such as facial scrubs and masks to clear away dead skin cells as well as in soaps, shampoos and creams. It is pale yellow and has a stronger odour than sweet almond, rather marzipan-like. Apricot kernel oil has a wonderful silky- like texture and is easily absorbed by the skin.
