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.

So that our staff may enjoy the Labor Day Holiday, Lotioncrafter's offices will be closed on Monday, September 4th. We will reopen on Tuesday, September 5th. During this time, we will not be returning phone calls or email messages. Shipping will resume on Tuesday, September 5th. Orders, emails and phone calls will be handled in the order received, as best we are able. Please expect some delays as we work through the holiday backlog! We also cannot guarantee changes to orders will be seen before orders have shipped, those that we do catch, will be held back to adjust, which will mean a shipping delay. We appreciate your understanding. Have a safe and happy Labor Day!

I got my products very fast and overall I am very satisfied with Lotioncrafter's service. I was surprised that they included extra measuring utensils in the box! I WILL be ordering from Lotioncrafter again.

I just wanted to say how much I am liking my new Borosilicate Beaker, 2000ml & the large wire whip.
The wire whip is the best quality wire whip I have ever had..
I now want them all..
Ruth

A great experience. Prompt service, delivery in 2 days, box carefully packed with a thank you item, and when shipping costs turned out to be less than estimated, a partial refund. Email communication throughout the transaction really makes this company exceptional... Will definitely recommend to others. Thanks so much!

I've been swinging my hair all day thanks to the silk amino acid product! This isn't the first time I've had amazing results using it, but I don't always get super shiny and flexible hair immediately after a henna treatment. My hair is shoulder length and relaxed. but I'll be able to postpone my next chemical treatment thanks to the SAA. I'll be ordering the largest size since the shelf life is a year. I'll probably try the argan oil too thanks to someone's review. :-)
