Seatons has added Peach Kernel Oil to its range of vegetable and
fruit extracts, an ingredient that targets skin care products for
delicate areas such as under the eyes and lips.

Seatons says that the extract is derived from peach fruit kernels, using a meticulous process that results in a pale yellow liquid containing a very mild odour. Peach kernels are made up of approximately 40 – 50 per cent oil, for which the properties are said to be similar to that of almond or apricot oil. On the back of increasing interest in personal care products made of natural ingredients, peach kernel oil is currently proving popular in a variety of products, including soaps and perfumes, in addition to skin care products. The oil extract is said to be light in texture, non-greasy and easily absorbed, helping to maintain the suppleness and elasticity of any skin areas. However, it is because it is such a light oil that Seatons says its research has proved it to be particularly effective for delicate skin. As well as specific skin areas, the company says that it can also be used in a variety of face creams and baby products. Last year Seatons launched a pomegranate oil, which is said to have significant anti-ageing properties as well as acting as a general moisturiser for skin care products. The company sources pink-orange pomegranate​ fruit for the extract, which is 7-12cm in size and beneath the thick protective skin can be found the edible seeds and flesh. Each pomegranate fruit contains approximated 800 seeds. The oil​ from these seeds contains up to 60 per cent punicic acid, a polyunsaturated fatty acid and a major storage lipid that helps to maintain skin's moisture levels and to prevent signs of wrinkling. Seatons, which is a division of Croda, is well placed to tap into two key driving forces in the cosmetics and toiletries market at the moment – anti-ageing and the market for natural based products. The company has been supplying oils to a host of different markets since 1840 and has now established itself as a key global player.
