Product Description

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 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.

Wild Apricot oil  ( SNAANA's Himalayan Apricot Oil ) is an ancient oil, which also goes by the name of ‘Chullu’ or 'Chulli' oil in India. The origin of apricot trees and fruits are found in the Himalayas and in other parts of Asia and are grown in cold temperatures that are why its called  Himalayan Apricot Oil.

SNAANA wants to drag your attention to the fact that we are still living in a legal framework that was adopted in British times and has not been amended at the pace synthetics/chemicals have come into use in skin care. Import, manufacture, distribution and sale of skin care/ beauty products are regulated by Drugs & Cosmetics Act 1940 and this law till date has not given a definite and uniform definition for usage of words on labels like natural and organic which is big-time responsible for misleading the consumers.

That is why what is packed in a bottle or jar in the name of natural, organic, ayurvedic is often not what it claims. Synthetic provide comfort and convenience to manufacturers in terms of making product cost effective and extending the shelf life but they harm our bodies. This is because we have never thought that these chemicals can make cause problems like migraine, cancer, hormonal disorders etc and much more in our bodies.

Let's stand united and bring this revolution TOGETHER.
