This oil was a main ingredient in the Goddess Salt Scrub recipe, and I received a request for a little background information on it. I'm always happy to oblige, so if you ever have a question, please let me know! Cherry Kernel Oil is a light, emollient oil, similar in texture to Sweet Almond or Apricot Kernel Oil. In fact, Cherry Kernel Oil can act a substitute for these oils in many types of non-soap formulations. Like other fruit or berry seed oils it contains a high amount of essential fatty acids. The acids particularly high in Cherry Kernel Oil are the omega 6 and 9 acids. It is also rich in tocopherols, making it a very stable oil, therefor a good choice for soaps and cosmetic formulations. Cherry Kernel Oil makes a great addition to lip balms, skin creams, scrubs or masks. It can also lend its moisturizing properties to haircare formulas where lighter oils are often preferred.
