Containing 50 tamanu nuts, 21 shea nuts and a third of a coconut (60ml), you might be tempted to spread this on your toast, but don’t, your skin will benefit far more. Award-winning and best-selling, this is a complexion-benefitting chameleon – adapting to whatever you want it to do. Soothing dry skin, taking the sting out of insect bites, improving the appearance of stretch marks and scars, you can even use it on lips, cuticles, knees and elbows! Completely untampered with, the green shade and herbaceous scent is all down to the tamanu oil from which this balm gets its name. Available in full size and mini because you won’t want to go anywhere without it!
Known as ‘green gold’ by the locals in French Polynesia, where the tamanu nut originates, tamanu oil is one of the speediest natural cell repairers we’ve ever set eyes on, so you won’t have to wait long for its skin-healing wizardry to take place. Originally used on soldiers to heal battle wounds*, it means anything that causes aggravation or inflammation – cuts, bites, burns, dry patches – will be put to rest with a swipe of this balm. And it doesn’t matter where on the body your area of concern lies, you can use it all over. Melting into skin so it’s easy to spread and with no stickiness, it’ll quickly become your new plus one.
This product is freshly made in the UK using the most nutritious, sustainably sourced ingredients from across the globe.
Aka ‘green gold’, this French Polynesian ingredient was used on the front line in battles to soothe wounded soldiers suffering from burns, cuts and infected wounds. Literally an SOS button for skin repair, the anti-inflammatory properties ensure a speedy recovery while the antibacterial side of things stops further flare-ups. It gets top marks for preventing free radical damage too, which degrades collagen and causes all sorts of unwanted side effects such as fine lines.
Berries in general are overflowing with antioxidants and blackcurrants are no different. However they get an extra gold star for being able to soothe and reduce inflammation as well as improving the skin’s elasticity.
Grown in the tropical rainforests of the Amazon, in some parts of the world this velvety butter from the Cupuaçu tree is used to make ice cream, but here we use it to keep skin hydrated and improve the resilience of your skin barrier so it can take whatever life throws at it.
