The Rich Healing Power of Tamanu Oil

Tamanu Oil is a topical healing oil derived from the nuts of the Ati tree in the South Pacific. It has been used for hundreds of years to clear up essentially any skin condition (even leprosy back in the day!). It is a secret that’s been forgotten, but the benefits of tamanu oil are slowly being realized again and are trending worldwide. With its high levels of lipids, fatty acids and anti-inflammatory agents, it has tremendous antioxidant activity. Here’s why we love it as an essential ingredient in our products:

Tamanu oil is lush with antioxidant, anti-bacterial, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory benefits. It’s also an analgesic and offers superior anti-itching benefits, which make it ideal in reducing dry, flaky scalp, dandruff and even reducing psoriasis symptoms. Tamanu oil has a mild, pleasant aroma and a luxurious feel, absorbing readily into the skin and scalp, leaving it soft and smooth. That absorbability is why we love this incredible oil; it soothes dry skin and scalp without any of that “leftover” feeling and literally vanishes into the skin.

We source our cold pressed tamanu oil from the island of Fiji.
