The lure of the South Pacific. Warmth. Sand. Sun. Palm trees. Calm. Ocean breezes. La pièce de résistance : Tamanu, The Beauty Leaf Oil. 

Tamanu oil is pressed from the Tamanu Nut tree fruit kernel Callophyllum inophyllum botanical. Native to Southeast Asia. The fruit is consumed (like an apple) and the oil is then pressed from the nut through a curing process.  Our tamanu oil comes from a sustainable farm in South Viet Nam and is of the purest quality.

History talks of its miraculous effects on the healing the skin from the minor to the major: abrasions, irritations, cuts, burns, blisters, bites, stings, psoriasis, eczema, scars, sores, inflammations, discolorations. Over the years I have written articles on Tamanu ( Filberg and a Tale of Tamanu, Tireless Tamanu, and Timeless Tamanu, ) and  having sold it now for over seven years, I can truly say, I am more than impressed.

A cosmetic wonder

We sell pure unrefined tamanu oil cosmetically and we are being blown away by the feedback.  Our customers are loving not just the oil, but also our tamanu cream. As our products have a shelf life the creams must be used up within 3-4 months or refrigerated. This is a good thing, meaning we do not add the strong chemical preservatives. Tamanu itself is a good preservative, so any product with tamanu is quite sturdy.  The oil need not be refrigerated. Room temperature is fine. Do not freeze.

Cosmetic attributes:

Soothing, cleansing, exfoliating, hydrating, anti-aging, protective, after shave, regenerating, irritation calming, stretch mark prevention, smoothing, collagen-enhancing, calming, nourishing, wrinkle reduction, reduction of skin   discolorations…what can’t it do?

Tamanu can be applied directly to the skin. It is beautiful oil straight on the skin but can be mixed with emu or argan if you want more glide. I like to wear it directly on skin, or mixed with a drop or two of emu and our revitalizing eye oil.  See: Three Perfect Oils 

Our Spoil Me Body Oil contains tamanu. Once you try it, it is hard to fathom a better all over body oil experience.
On the hair.  Add a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner

If you love tamanu oil you can further enhance several of our natural products. Add a few drops to our facial clay neem mask, our manitouka scrub exfoliating spa, Experiment. Add tamanu to your favourite skin care product. While there are no cures for skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, people often find that tamanu can be most soothing. 

Tamanu oil is red flagged in that it MAY cause some allergic reaction in some people.  I have never heard of an experience but since it is a nut, and if you are sensitive, always test first
