Apricot Seed Powder Skin Benefits:
Exfoliation

Apricot seeds alone contain high concentration of fatty acids, minerals and vitamins. For this reason, apricot seed oil may serve as a viable emollient that can improve skin hydration. 1

Comparatively, while its extract may provide moisturizing benefits, apricot seed powder is primarily used for its mechanically, exfoliating benefits in clays or scrubs. When massaged into the skin, apricot seed powder acts as fine solid particles that promote the removal of damaged skin cells from the skin’s surface, thus leaving behind a softer, smoother skin texture.2
