Sweet cherry kernel oil is a stable, emollient oil, high in oleic acid. Cherry kernel oil also contains natural antioxidants, alpha, delta and gamma tocopherols plus vitamins A & E. Even though the taste and smell of the refined oil has no resemblance to the actual fruit, it smells and feels great on the skin.
It is similar in properties to sweet almond and peach kernel oils, and it can be used within the same applications. Cherry kernel oil makes a light, moisturizing addition to lip balm, bodu butter, salt and sugar scrub formulations. It is also beneficial in bath oils, and it works well as a penetrating carrier oil in aromatherapy.
