Apricot Oil

Natural Skin Care Products by Wildcrafted Herbal Products

Introduction

Apricot oil is obtained from the kernels of the Prunus armeniaca (apricot). The kernels have an oil content of 40-50%. Apricot oil is similar to that of almond oil and peach oil, which are also extracted from the kernels of the respective fruit.

Base Oil: Apricot Oil


Apricot Oil

Apricot oil is obtained from the pressed seeds of the apricot fruit. The oil itself, like almond, is clear and light in texture, with very little odour. It too is absorbed readily into the skin, and is rich, soothing and healing for all skin problems.

It blends well with Wheatgerm oil in the treatment of rough skin, prematurely aging skin, skin which has become dry from the sun and to reduce scar tissue. It is a good source of Vitamin A and calcium.

It is frequently used as a base oil to which other essential oils are added to formulate massage oils. It's applications however are more far reaching and its use in natural skin care products is of benefit to sensitive, dry and mature skin types.

Constituents of Apricot Oil

From Gandhi, V.M. Mulky, M.J. Mukerji, B. Iyer, V.J. and Cherian, K.M. (1997) Safety Evaluation of Wild Apricot Oil. Food and Chemical Toxicology 35, 583-587.

The oil has 94% unsaturated fatty acids, rich in oleic and linoleic acids. Systemic effects and nutritional quality of wild apricot oil (WAO) were assessed in a 13-wk feeding study in weanling albino rats using a diet containing 10% WAO as the sole source of dietary fat. A similar diet containing groundnut oil (GNO) was used as the control. WAO did not manifest any toxic potential. The food consumption, growth rate and food efficiency ratio of rats fed WAO were similar to those fed GNO (Gandi, et al., 1997).
The digestibility of this oil was found to be comparable to that of GNO. There were no macroscopic or microscopic lesions in any of the organs that could be ascribed to WAO incorporation in the diet. The results of t!ais study indicate that WAO could be used for edible purposes without any overt toxic signs or symptoms. However a long-term study may be needed to confirm its innocuousness further (Gandi, et al., 1997).

Abbreviations: AOAC = Association of Official Analytical Chemists; FER = food efficiency ratio; GNO = gloundnut oil; WAO = wild apricot oil.
