Apricot Oil Online – SNAANA’s Apricot oil is obtained from the kernels (seeds) of the Apricot fruit through the cold-pressed method. Cold-pressed is better as it does not alter the natural chemical compounds that are already present in the oil. It can be used both as a cosmetic (which is meant for topical application) and edible (which can be used in food). This oil has a deep nutty flavor which also makes it an excellent ingredient for desserts and other recipes.
