Tamanu Oil is derived from the nuts of the Calophyllum inophyllum tree, which is native to Southeast Asia and is abundant in Polynesia. Said to reduce inflammation and destroy bacteria, this remedial oil has been used for years on the face, hair, and skin for conditions such as acne, psoriasis and scars.
Our Organic, Unrefined Tamanu Oil
has an almost serum-like consistency that helps to penetrate into the skin, and because it is full of antioxidants, it helps to protect the skin from premature ageing. That's a win-win in our eyes!
You can use it as a daily moisturiser or add a few drops into your usual moisturiser, as it easily absorbs into the skin, without leaving a greasy residue.
There are many amazing uses for Tamanu Oil. Here are our top 5!
1. Heals Scars
This oil possesses a rare ability to promote the formation of new skin tissue; accelerating the growth of healthy skin. Using either a cotton wool ball or pad, place a drop of Tamanu Oil on any scars you want to get rid of, such as acne scars, chicken pox, or even stretch marks. Tamanu Oil has amazing skin rejuvenating properties and works incredibly quickly!
2. Amazing Hair
Tamanu Oil also works wonders at making your hair and scalp healthy. It restores your hair's natural shine as well as sealing in the moisture and fighting any scalp infections. We like to add a teaspoon into our conditioner and see it work its magic!
3. Soothes Wrinkles
Tamanu Oil is full to the brim with fatty acids. These are great at nourishing the skin and helping to maintain its elasticity. It will also help to stop the free radicals which are a known cause of wrinkles.
4. Soothes Rashes
Another great use for Tamanu Oil is to get rid of any rashes. It has an abundance of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which help to soothe and heal the rashes. Some people also use tamanu oil to soothe insect bites.
5. Could Help with Rosacea & Psoriasis
Because Tamanu oil is not well known outside of parts of Southeast Asia, available research on tamanu and its effects on psoriasis is sparse. However, it does have natural healing properties that make it a likely candidate as a flare-up reducer, and due to its exceptional anti-inflammatory and anti-redness properties, it is one of the best oils to use on skin conditions such as rosacea and psoriasis.
