PLUM SEED OIL

Plum seed oil is a bio-oil of high cosmetic utility due to its high content of essential unsaturated fatty acids (EFA) in the form of oleic acid (70%) and linoleic acid (21%) and the presence of unsaponifiable fraction in the form of tocopherols (vitamin E), beta-carotene and phytosterols. It is one of the few natural vegetable oils with such an intense almond fragrance.

Cold Press Plum seed oil has a unique almond aroma, due to its aroma and taste is appreciated and popular in Italian and French cuisines, where it is used as an addition to fruit desserts, salads, sauces and fish dishes. Prunus Domestica is an excellent carrier of liposoluble active substances (e.g. Q10) contained in cosmetic preparations. 

Plum seed oil is rich in omega-6 and omega-9 unsaturated fatty acids, which are a natural component of the skin’s lipid coating. Deficiency of fatty acids in the skin is manifested by weakening of the skin’s protective barrier, slowed healing process, dry skin, wrinkling and flabby skin, dermatosis, flaking, inflammation, increased susceptibility to blackheads and eczema and frequent irritation and redness of the skin. Due to its high oleic acid content, is one of the light oils that are quickly absorbed into the skin without leaving a feeling of greasiness and viscosity.
