We like to call it Liquid Gold - Tamanu Oil boasts a long list of benefits, which is why it was an absolute must to include in our moisturizer. The oil is derived from the tamanu nut tree, and has been used medicinally for centuries in Asia. Tamanu Oil is super rich in fatty acids, giving it powerful moisturizing abilities. It can also promote wound healing, and reduce redness by stimulating collagen production and new cell growth. It’s a miracle worker at helping to rejuvenate damaged skin.
This plant has been used for centuries to soothe sensitive and irritated skin. It is an anti-redness powerhouse that enhances the skin’s barrier and improves skin’s immunity. It is known for being used for a range of skin problems, such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, burns and wounds. Because of its long history of providing skin benefits, it was scientifically studied for its anti-inflammatory response and was shown to outperform a 1% hydrocortisone cream in treating redness and irritation on the skin.
