Plum kernel oil is sourced from the fruit kernels of the Prunus domestica aka the European plum tree. It has a very high concentration of vitamin E, making it resistance to oxidation, plus a high ratio of monounsaturated fatty acids relative to saturated fatty acids.

Its main chemical constituents are: oleic acids (60-80%), linoleic acids (15-25%), palmitic acid (5-10%), stearic acid (1-4%), palmitoleic acid (1-2%), and vitamin E.

A fast absorbing oil, it is deeply moisturising, leaving skin soft and supple with a satin-like finish. It is said to have antioxidant properties which can help fight the effects of free radicals, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. Can be used to help relieve redness on irritated and dry skin. Can to be a good cleansing oil, used to remove impurities such as dirt, sweat and excess sebum. Said to support the skin’s natural collagen production, plum kernel oil can help to rejuvenate skin and hair.

Can be used in haircare formulations to tame frizz, soften and protect hair and promote shinier and healthier-looking hair without greasy residue.
