Peach Kernel Oil


What does this mean?

Inci:Prunus persica Kernel Oil

A semi-fatty oil that has the same properties as apricot kernel oil.


The oil is clear, light yellow with a slight smell and mild taste. The peach kernel provides around 32-45% oil, which is stable and semi-fatty. Its qualities are that it spreads well and is easily absorbed by the skin.
It is absorbed quite slowly (20- 50 minutes) and is therefore excellent for use in whole body massage oil blends.
It is a mild oil, which is tolerated by most people, and is especially good for sensitive, inflamed, dry or mature skin but it is a classic skin oil for sensitive skin and peach and apricot kernel oils are interchangeable for products that treat sensitive skin.
It enhances skin elasticity and has a soft and smooth quality on the skin.
It works well in anti-wrinkle/skin rejuvenation products for sensitive skin and in massage lotions and oils for sensitive skin as peach kernel oil is a long oil.

A drop goes a long way and so is very good for long strokes in whole body massage.
Excellent addition to skin cleansers and peelers for sensitive skin.
Keeps for 2-3 years.


Sensitive skin
You can substitute peach kernel oil with apricot kernel oil, which has the equivalent amount of fatty acids.

Anti-Wrinkle Oil Blend for Sensitive Skin
Blend peach kernel oil with kiwi seed, chia seed, blueberry seed and/or rosehip oil, which are drier and can be put in face oils and serums.
