A wonderful oil for the skin which is rich, nourishing and healing. This oil comes from the pacific islands and is obtained from the nut of the Calophyllum tree, sometimes also known as Foraha and Dilo Oil. Tamanu oil is magical for the skin and hair, a must have for all skin aliments. The healing power of this oil is its unique ability to promote the formation of new skin tissue, thereby accelerating wound healing and the growth of healthy skin. The scientific term for this process is called “cicatrization”. Tamanu oil has an extremely complex portfolio of chemistry that is not yet fully explained by science. However, scientific studies have shown that Tamanu Oil is a significant healing agent for skin because of its anti-inflammatory, anti-neuralgic, antibiotic and antioxidant properties.
