Plum Oil
CAS No: 90082-87-4

Plum Oil also known as Plum Seed Oil or Plum Kernel Oil is a cold pressed, virgin oil extracted from the seeds or kernels of French Ente plums. It is a rich oil that offers a non-greasy and silky skin feel that moisturizes skin and adds shine to hair when used at 1% to 10%. It spreads easily without tackiness, and is absorbed quickly by skin in anhydrous and emulsified products.

Plum Oil is an oil soluble ingredient that can be used in any anhydrous product or in the oil phase of an emulsified product. It has a wonderful natural aroma with notes of almonds and fruit, which may appear in the final product depending upon concentration level. It is a biodegradable, non-GMO product.

Plum Oil has a shelf life of 1 year. It is stored and shipped from Lotioncrafter under an inert argon gas. Once opened, Plum Oil should be kept under refrigeration for long term storage.

Rebecca Holland, (Holland Homestead Farm)

How did I not know of your company?? I ordered in a panic on a Thursday because I had orders to fill for lotion & I was out of emulsifying wax & preservative. I was hoping for maybe a Monday delivery. The package was on my doorstep on Saturday...I live in Florida!! You rock! I just placed another order & you are now my "go to" website. Thank you for your excellent service.
Cindy Allen, (All Natural, Always)
