Raw Bitter Apricot Kernel Powder

Bitter apricot kernel powder is widely used in cosmetics and face scrubs due to their high oil (comprised of beneficial oleic and linoleic acid) and nutrient (vitamin A, E and B17) content. Apricot kernels are also great when ground and used to exfoliate the skin. Our kernels are extremely high quality and are sourced from Greece.

Bitter apricot kernel powder for B17 – bitter kernels are said to contain vitamin B17 which is said to be a beneficial nutrient for the skin. The fact that B17 is relatively rare to find from other sources means that apricot kernels are a must for homemade facial scrubs and skincare products.

Apricot kernels are not intended for internal use due to containing amygdalin – a cyanogenic glycoside which results in the release of cyanide during digestion of the kernels in the human gut.

The FSA say…
