Plum, a miracle of nature - its hidden virtues finally revealed !





It doesn't count as plums,

Its ancient origins


Cultivated for millennia, the plum has many virtues... Highly prized by the Egyptians for their virtues, dried plums also accompanied their deaths in the pyramid tombs. Plums were also present in Syria, where the Crusaders returned from an unsuccessful expedition with nothing but plum trees, giving rise to the expression “pour des prunes” (“for plums”), meaning “for nothing”: “They went there for plums!


Plums arrived in France during the Middle Ages, and were very popular during the Renaissance. The “Reine-claude” variety is named after Claude de France, one of François I's wives, who was very fond of plums.


Prune d'Ente is a variety used in the South-West to make the famous Agen prunes.




A Vitamin Nugget


Plums are rich in Vitamins A, B, C and E, which help the body function properly and stimulate memory and the immune system. Its vitamins are also highly beneficial for skin care!

Vitamins C and E in particular are renowned for their anti-aging properties.


Plums are also rich in minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus. These are undeniable advantages for remineralizing devitalized skin.


Its anti-aging virtues are also explained by its richness in fatty acids, specifically oleic acid or omega 9, linoleic acid, omega 6, palmitic acid and stearic acid. These nutrients play an important role, conferring protective, plumping, nourishing and softening properties.


They help reinforce the skin's hydrolipidic film. Fragile, it can easily become unbalanced, leading to dryness and premature aging of the skin.

It regulates blood pressure, thanks to the presence of potassium. They reduce bad cholesterol and protect the arteries. As a natural health preventive, plums limit the risk of cardiovascular disease.


  • Beneficial for transit

Thanks to its plant fiber content, plum is a powerful laxative, accelerating and facilitating transit. Particularly useful in cases of constipation. It purifies the digestive tract and perfectly regulates transit. Packed with water, the plum is an effective diuretic, and therefore has excellent hydrating properties. It also reduces urinary disorders and improves micturition.







The ultimate anti-aging treatment, bursting with antioxidants


Plums are one of the richest fruits in antioxidants, making them one of the best natural anti-aging skincare products. Packed with powerful antioxidants that protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals, antioxidants are highly effective in preventing the development of cancer cells and premature aging of skin and cells.

Vitamin E is a free-radical scavenger, fighting cell ageing and protecting against the signs of time. It offers better protection from the sun's rays, which in the long term can cause skin dryness, wrinkles, cracks and pigmentation spots.


Thanks to its protective & antioxidant virtues, plum is an invaluable aid in maintaining youthful, plump skin. Fighting the loss of skin elasticity, it preserves collagen fibers, which are essential for the fluidity and resistance of cellular tissues. These fibers are essential to the skin's natural healing process. Plum restores tone and vitality to skin of all types and ages. It maintains the skin's natural radiance.

Which shape to choose ?


It's preferable to use the purest form possible in addition to the fruit, as oil is the form that best preserves the plum's active ingredients.


Recently launched, precious plum oil is the fruit of a fine French innovation 🇫🇷

One fine day, small producers from a plum orchard in the South-West of France were growing the Prune d'Ente variety, marketed ripe or dried as Pruneaux d'Agen,

So amazed by its rich benefits, they came up with the brilliant idea of converting their waste plum stones and, more precisely, plum kernels into precious plum oil, unique in the world!

What a surprise when they discovered this precious calyx of fluid lightness, intoxicating them with its subtle gourmet scent, delighting their taste buds with its sweet tone and immediately comforting their skin. Smiling with well-being as they soaked up the virtues, they knew... That they were witnessing a Miracle of Nature!

Since then, they've grown even more grateful to Mother Nature, thanking her daily for her generosity.


Thanks to the gentlest possible manufacturing process for the active ingredients, the oil is obtained using traditional ancestral methods by 1st cold pressing, with no additional alterations or manipulations that would degrade its quality. No harmful chemical substances are added, nor is it hydrogenated, heated or blended with other oils to attenuate its properties.

As a dry oil, it leaves the skin feeling dry and non-greasy, so you won't feel any heaviness or residue if you use it sparingly.







How do I use it ?

Awarded for its nutritive and protective benefits, the plum is a true Swiss Army knife of beauty. Its oil can be applied to the skin to prevent the free radicals responsible for the signs of premature skin aging, or used as a body or hair care product, or as a treatment for the organism.
