Bitter Apricot Kernels look like tiny little almonds, but they shouldn’t be confused with them! They are the seeds from inside stones at the heart of apricots and have a brown colour. These Bitter Apricot Kernels have high levels of B17 (amygdalin) in them.
Once sold as food suitable for human consumption. Due to updated regulation in 2017 we can now only sell them for cosmetic use. This is because our apricot kernels may contain up to 150mg/kg amygdalin and the FSA (Food Standards Agency) has set a maximum level of 20mg/kg for all apricot kernels sold for human consumption. This is part of EC regulation 2017/1237.

In order to remain compliant with the FSA, we can only sell Bitter Apricot Kernels as a cosmetic product that is widely used in body scrubs, facial scrubs and as a beauty exfoliation ingredient. They can be easily used for this purpose, just grind Bitter Apricot Kernels using a pestle and mortar and use either alone, with our Fine Pink Himalayan Crystal Salt and add some Coconut
Oil to create a beautiful and all natural body scrub to keep your skin healthy and glowing!
