Tamanu oil is taking the US by storm. It relieves puffy eyes and gives new luster to the skin. Its environmentally sound and and cost much less than other products that just claim to promote new skin growth. Most importantly it really does work!
What It Does
Tamanu oil contains three types of fats–neutral lipids, glycolipids, and phospholipids–that keep skin well nourished and supple. It also contains calophyllic acid, another fatty acid unique to tamanu oil. Research shows that calophyllic acid exerts potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions, and is so powerful it can inhibit Staphylococcus aureus, the bacteria that contributes to acne.
Easily absorbed into the skin, tamanu oil encourages the formation of new skin tissue, which makes it ideal for healing wounds and soothing psoriasis, eczema, sunburn, and dry skin. Tamanu oil can also improve the appearance of scars. In one study of six people with old scars, those who applied tamanu oil to their scars for nine weeks noticed marked improvement.
The collection Tamanu fruits helps to keep Pacific island coastal areas pristine. The preparation of Tamanu provides income for native people and helps them to maintain an agricultural society. Tamanu is a beneficial oil of unsurpassed quality, and contributes directly to environmental and cultural sustainability.
