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.

Our Customers Say...
The shealoe butter is to die for. It is great on skin and very dry hair. I mixed a tablespoon of glycerin and honey quat in the shealoe butter. Pure perfection!! The moisture and sheen it gives is excellent. Also, the service is great. Received my items prompt and secure.
Dee

Items all arrived on time and very well packaged. It looks like Lotioncrafter took the time to wrap and label each item carefully, legibly and to protect from moisture and light. They even returned part of my shipping cost to just cover the actual incurred shipping cost. Nice and honest seller. Will definitely return to shop for some more stuff. Thank you!
Ed

Great info provided on website, great quality materials, & great customer service! Thank you!!
Rachel , (Valchemy Lab Perfume)

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!
Mary Feuer

We had a small problem with our recent order and called customer support today. They apologized profusely for the issue and said they would call back with a resolution. They called back quickly with an excellent resolution. I absolutely couldn\'t be more happy with them. If they carry what I need I will NEVER buy it from anyone else. I am sold on LotionCrafter!
