PLUM KERNEL OIL
This oil has a fantastic, almost marzipan aroma which delights the nose almost as much as the oil itself revives the skin and lips. We think it is a perfect alternative to a lip balm when gently applied with a finger, or the perfect constituent in lip balm products, due to its very high oleic acid content.
It is an oil soluble ingredient that can be used in any anhydrous product or in the oil phase of an emulsified product. The wonderful natural aroma with notes of almonds and fruit may appear in the final product depending upon concentration level. It is a biodegradable, non-GMO product. Vegan friendly.
The oil is rich in beneficial oleic (60-80%) and linoleic (15-25%) fatty acids, as well as vitamin E and B. The high oleic acid content also means that this a lovely material for massage products and other cosmetics for dry skins. The antioxidant action of vitamin E is particularly good for mature skins.
Used also as a general moisturiser its non-greasy texture is easily absorbed. Generally recommended for dry and re active skin types.
