Tamanu Oil

What Is Tamanu Oil?

The tamanu nut is nicknamed green gold for its wealth of reparative, antibacterial properties, with tamanu oil derived from the seeds of the tamanu nut tree.
Possessing a distinctively earthy and nutty scent, it's used in many skincare products to hydrate dry skin, soothe irritated skin, calm acne-prone skin, and help strengthen the skin barrier.
Keep reading to learn more about these and the many other skincare benefits derived from this little tree nut.

What Are The Benefits?

Tamanu oil offers a host of skin benefits, working miracles on those with sensitive and eczema-prone skin. A powerhouse ingredient in any effective skincare routine, here are some of its key benefits:
- Rich in fatty acids (particularly linoleic acids), tamanu oil moisturises dry skin. This makes it a great ingredient for eczema-focused skincare products that hydrate scaly skin.
- Tamanu oil's antibacterial properties make it effective at combatting acne-aggravating bacteria. Useful for many common skin conditions where excess sebum contributes to acne, you'll often find it in spot treatments and products for oily skin types.
- Thanks to its natural anti-inflammatory properties, tamanu oil is proven to soothe irritation and inflammation. It also works to reduce the appearance of dark spots.
- Its antioxidant properties help protect against free radical damage caused by exposure to environmental aggressors like sun and pollution.
- Tamanu oil stimulates collagen production, a process that encourages skin cell regeneration and wound healing. However, we'd never encourage you to apply products containing tamanu oil to an open wound.
