Apricot kernel oil is added to shampoos and conditioners, to replenish shine, moisture, and lustre.

Incredible products

I bought some argan and apricot kernel oil and its incredible! I personally prefer using natural products and so I've been using it on my hair and nails. Definitely going to buy more from pure nature!
