Pages Plum Kernel Oil January 06 2023
Did you know that plums are among the most ancient fruits? Archeologists have found their remains in Neolithic caves along with olives and grapes. This delicious and juicy fruit comes originally from Iran, but it is now cultivated around the world. There are at least 28 different plum varieties that offer striking colors and flavor profiles.
Our plum kernel oil is made by breaking the pits and cold-pressing the kernel to extract a beautiful golden oil. Reminiscent in the smell of sweet almonds, plum oil offers a rich marzipan-like aroma that is simply divine.
Plum kernel oil offers a rich profile of unsaturated and essential fatty acids that nourish and protect the skin. They calm irritations and strengthen the skin's hydrolipidic film to prevent skin dryness. Light in texture, the oil penetrates quickly into the skin while maintaining its silky soft. These benefits provide relief and nutrition for dry, irritated, and sensitive skin types, such as people with eczema and psoriasis.
Rich in vitamin E and sterols, plum kernel oil has powerful antioxidant properties to neutralize free radicals and fight against skin aging. Ideal in anti-aging care, it can also be sufficient on its own. It is therefore perfect for dry and mature skin.
Similarly, plum oil provides nourishment for dry, brittle, and weakened hair. Its fatty acids support hair health and soften its texture.
