Peach Kernel Oil (Prunus Persica Kernel Oil)
Peach Kernel oil is produced by cold-pressing the kernels that sit inside the peach stones. These kernels contain as much as 40% oil that holds powerful skin-boosting elements such as vitamin A, some Bs, and our ever-favourite, vitamin E (the antioxidant warrior fighting those free radicals that cause signs of ageing).
The oil also contains a variety of fatty acids, which give MIMI Sleeping Beauty night time facial oil its ability to soothe and nourish sensitive, delicate and ageing skin. It’s a light oil that penetrates the skin quite slowly. The soothing, emollient nature of Peach Kernel oil means that it can protect dry, flaky or sensitive skin.
The peach fruit actually originates in China. Records show it was first mentioned as far back as 10th Century BC when it was favoured by Chinese royalty.
