The Cherry Kernel Oil is extracted by pressing the 'Sweet Cherry' (Prunus avium), a plant native to Europe. The plant grows in abundance throughout the world, from the UK to New Zealand. Our Cherry Kernel oil is from a variety of Europe sources. The demand for cherries is high and the fruit season normally limited to just a month, so the availability of crop changes throughout the summer from Origin.
The Cherry tree will take 3-4 years to produce it's first crop and at 7 years will reach maturity, producing its finest yields.
The Cherry Tree will grow to heights of 15-32m and can have a trunk up to 1.5m in diameter. The beautiful white flowers normally appear in Early spring and the fruit will appear from the flower heads.
Rich in Vitamin A, Cherry Kernel oil is similar to Sweet Almond, however it has a less 'fatty' feel making in much more useful for skincare. The high amount of antioxidants, Oleic acid and natural emollient results in improvements to dry skin and refinement in large pores.
Oleic acid (Omega-9) which is found in abundance in Cherry Kernel oil helps maintain healthy hair and can help prevent the build up off dandruff.
