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.
