How is plum oil produced?

Particularly concentrated in Vitamin E, plum oil is an excellent antioxidanttreatment to protect the skin and hair from free radicals. Titled "Prunus Domestica Seed Oil" according to the INCI nomenclature, it is found in numerous skincare products. Here is its extraction process.


The vegetable oil of plum and its method of extraction.

Like the majority of vegetable oils, plum oil is derived from the first cold press. The plum, botanically known as Prunus Domestica, is cultivated for the production of Agen prunes. The process of obtaining this vegetable oil involves several steps.

  1. Harvesting of the fruits, from mid-August to mid-September, when the fruits have a beautiful deep purple color with characteristic bluish reflections.

  2. Cleaning through suction, drying, and hulling of the kernels to isolate the almonds.

  3. Mechanical pressure grinding of almond kernels. This step is carried out at room temperature and does not involve any chemical reactions. An unpurified plum oil is obtained.

  4. Purification of the oil through decantation and filtration (no chemical reaction is performed).

This extraction method allows for the procurement of a 100% pure and natural oil, preserving all the active principles of the kernels. The plum oil thus extracted is used in the skincare and haircare industry, where it is incorporated into moisturizing, nourishing, and softening treatments. In addition to its benefits, it imparts a gentle frangipane fragrance to the products.
