The apricot tree is a tree of the Rosaceae family, same family as the peach, the cherry, the almond tree.

Apricot oil, obtained by cold pressing cores, is rich in oleic acid, vitamins A and E. In addition to being nourishing and softening, it restores a touch of radiance and tone to your skin!
Thanks to its carotenoid composition, this oil illuminates the complexion and restore all its radiance. Carotenoids are known to bring orange colour to carrots. They also prepare the skin for the sun thanks to light photoprotective action and thus facilitate tanning. But, be careful, that does not replace sunscreens!

    a glorious oil
    I have now tried many vegetable oils. None were bad but this one is the best. I love its texture and perfume. It is quickly absorbed and leaves no greasy film. From now on, that is the oil for me !!

  2. Razel W. (store manager)

    This product, Apricot Skin Oil, was a gift for a good friend in Arizona. She LOVES it so much, that I found it again on line through Pacfic Scents and ordered more. The customer care I received was also very caring. Love the product, really like the company. Thank you.
