The magic power of apricots
Apricots not only taste delicious, they are the secret star of the skincare sky. Learn more about the delicious super fruit!
Apricot kernel oil is considered the secret star in skin care. Unlike coconut oil, shea butter, or argan oil, it has not yet become a trendsetter product. Yet it would have more than earned its fame. Apricots have a very high content of carotenoids, which strengthen the immune system, prevent cancer, and protect the skin from UV radiation. Thanks to the vitamin B5 they contain, they strengthen the nerves and stimulate blood formation and cell renewal. For wellness hotels in South Tyrol, they are particularly important because of their positive effects on skin and hair. The oil from the heart of the fruit, apricot kernel oil, helps to stabilise the moisture balance of the skin. It makes particularly dry, brittle, or cracked skin soft and supple again. It tightens the tissue and preserves its youthful glow. It certainly also helps to simply enjoy the sweet delicacy fresh from the tree. Try it out.
