Peach Kernel Oil


What does this mean?

Inci:Prunus Persica Kernel Oil

A gentle oil suitable for everyday use, for sensitive skin, dry, mature skin and babies. A great all rounder for all skin types.


A clear, pale yellow liquid that is virtually odourless. It is obtained by expeller pressing of the seed (stone) of the ripe peach fruit that has then been refined, bleached, deodorised and winterized to remove undesirable impurities and aroma, making the oil more stable and pleasant to use. It has very similar properties and profile to Apricot Kernel Oil.

  • Use at 1% to 100%.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products.
  • Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.

Peach Kernel Oil blends very well with drier feeling oils like Chia Seed, Kiwi Seed and Rosehip Seed as it makes them feel more elegant on the skin.
