We are delighted to carry this exquisite cold-pressed virgin Cherry Kernel Oil naturally grown in Turkey. Cherry Kernel oil is extracted from the kernel of the Prunus avium fruit, and then lightly filtered to remove debris. The resulted oil is clear with a light golden yellow color, and a cheery cherry scent. The aroma is sweet, fruity, with nutty nuances and berry notes that softly fade like a dessert savored with every bite.
The sweet Cherry tree takes about 3 to 4 years in order to produce its first corp. At seven years, it reaches its maturity period and produces its finest yields, and thus its finest oil.
Rich in vitamins A and E, Cherry Kernel Virgin oil is a regenerative oil that is used ideally for mature and dry skin types. It contains antioxidants, delta, alpha, and gamma tocopherols to restore elasticity and firm the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Its balanced essential fatty acid composition of linoleic acid and oleic acids, make it non-comedogenic for blemish-prone skin types.
Cherry Kernel oil is stable, with a long shelf life of 3 years when housed in cold and dark storage conditions.
