Peach kernel oil is a non-greasy, odourless and almost colourless oil.
It can be substituted for apricot kernel oil and sweet almond oil.
Peach kernel oil is widely used in the cosmetics industry as an ingredient in soaps, shampoos, lotions, creams.

It moisturises dry skin and helps to retain the skin’s elasticity, making the skin soft and supple.
It is light, penetrating and easily absorbed (therefore good for massage).
It is suitable for sensitive skin and because it is rich in antioxidants it nourishes your skin and combats signs of ageing.
It is soothing for inflamed or damaged skin and helps relieve skin ailments including eczema and psoriasis.
It can be used as a makeup remover and cleanser.

A gentle massage with peach kernel oil helps relieve fatigue and lethargies, thereby rejuvenating you. It is also an effective cure for insomnia as it relaxes and eases your body, thereby inducing sleep.
