Used for centuries in the Pacific Islands, this oil gained attention when it was shown in a study to help normalise the appearance of scar tissue. From the moment you apply Tamanu Oil to the skin, it can be seen that it’s a very intense and concentrated oil. It has a yellow/green colour, feels quite thick until warmed and has a very distinctive herbal scent. In some ways, it may not be the “prettiest” of the oils, but it is certainly one of the most effective.
Tamanu Oil is now becoming famous for its anti-ageing benefits based on promotion of new skin and its assistance in repair and rejuvenation. Ideal for those with blemishes, scarring and in need of skin soothing. It’s best applied in the evening or under a moisturiser. To help heal and prevent stretch marks, apply to affected areas with a warming massage.
- Cold-pressed from the nuts of the Tamanu fruit native to the Pacific Islands
