Renowned for its skin healing abilities, it comes to no surprise that the exotic and precious oil is known as a “healing hero”.

 

Rich and deep green coloured, Tamanu Oil is extracted by cold pressing and filtrating the Tamanu Nut, grown on a Tamanu Tree. Natives believed the Tamanu Tree was a sacred gift of nature and often used the oil for skincare, haircare and to aid their wellbeing.

“Did you know? It takes 100 kilograms of Tamanu Seed Oil
to produce less than 5 kilograms of cold pressed oil!”

 

Filled with antioxidants and fatty acids, Tamanu Oil is known to be a natural skin solution – there are many benefits of using the super ingredient for skincare.

Here are just a few benefits of Tamanu Seed Oil for our skin:

 

  • Anti-Aging

Tamanu Seed Oil helps to stimulate the growth of new tissues and therefore accelerate the healing and growth of healthy skin. The fatty acids found in the oil help to promote collagen and thus works to reduce the appearance of fine-lines and wrinkles, whilst improving the skin’s elasticity.

  • Treats Acne

Tamanu Seed Oil includes anti-bacterial phytochemicals which actions against and destroys the bacteria build-up in the pores which causes acne breakouts and blemishes. The phytochemicals stimulate ‘phagocytic cells’ to take antibiotic action against the bacteria which manifests as acne.

  • Treats Dry Skin

Tamanu Seed Oil quickly absorbs and penetrates into deep layers of the skin ensuring the facial skin is deeply nourished, hydrated and moisturised, as opposed to merely coating the top layer of the facial skin. The fatty acids found in Tamanu Seed Oil helps to restore dry skin without leaving a greasy residue on the skin’s surface.

  • Natural Sunscreen Protection

The anti-oxidant property of Tamanu Seed Oil means the healing hero can be used as natural sunscreen to protect the skin against harsh UV rays of the sun. The xanthones and coumarin components of Tamanu Oil hinder ‘lip peroxidation’ which means it’s suitable for soothing and treating sunburns.

These reasons are why the natives said the Tamanu nut is the sacred gift of nature.  The Tamanu seed oil is a natural skin solution, the healing hero that will leave your skin looking and feeling silky, soft and smooth.
