The Incredible Skin Healing Properties Of Tamanu Oil
Tamanu oil, also known as “the natural skin healer”
, is obtained from cold pressed nuts
from the fruits that grow on the so called Tamanu tree
The tree can be found in Polynesia, Thailand, Malaysia and some other parts of
tropical Southeast Asia. Tamanu oil has a specific rich green color and light nutty
smell. Rich in fatty acids like linoleic acid, oleic acid,
stearic acid, palmitic acid, and the not-so-famous, but quite intriguing,
callophyllic acid, the oil has a great variety of properties that your skin can
benefit from and is definitely worth knowing more about. Stay with us, if you
want to find how this exotic green elixir can help your skin.
Get Rid Of Scars and Dark Spots
The thing that
bothers most people who suffer from
acne are not the pimples (because they come
and go) but the marks they leave on the skin once they are gone.
Scars, dark spots, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin surface are among the “great memories”
your blemishes leave you with, once you manage to get rid of them. When it
comes to skin regeneration, there is one oil that I absolutely worship (and so
do many of our clients) –
Tamanu Oil! Tamanu oil promotes new tissue formation,
accelerates wound healing and stimulates cell division (more new cells =
healthier skin). It improves the appearance of old scars and reduces the risk
of getting new ones, if you are still struggling with active acne. The oil can
be used on the entire face or only over the affected areas. Aside from
acne-related skin issues, Tamanu oil is great for sunburns, minor scratches and
The way I apply
it (when I use
Pure Organic Tamanu Oil alone) is before bed, because it’s a bit
thick and it needs more time to be fully absorbed.
Always make sure the natural oils you are buying are 100% organic! This is the ultimate guarantee that all of their wonderful properties are fully preserved!
Slow Down Aging
oil, like most vegetable oils, is composed
of phospholipids and glycolipids (naturally present in healthy skin) it helps maintain
the integrity of the lipid barrier of the skin, which is essential for keeping
it healthy. Tamanu oil has impressive water-binding properties, hence prevents
water from leaving the cell, keeping your skin hydrated and glowing.
Another reason why Tamanu oil is widely used in anti-aging products is the
high level of
antioxidants (stop free radicals from causing damage to healthy
vitamin E (improves skin’s elasticity and firmness). When applied
topically, Tamanu oil enhances collagen production and improves the overall appearanhce
of the skin, leaving it plump, radiant and smooth.

Heal Your Skin
Tamanu oil contains coumarine and
calophyllolide (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent) which make the green elixir
anti-inflammatory and soothing agent
, potential enough to
suppress bacteria growth and help you deal with breakouts. To get the best of
its anti-bacterial properties it’s recommended to apply it both morning and evening.
In case you have only skin, please
don’t be in a hurry to say
“no oil goes
on my skin!”
. Thanks to its high linoleic acid content, Tamanu oil can “dilute”
sebum and prevent clogging of pores. At the same time, it will trick your skin
into thinking it has produced enough oil already, which will suppress the secretion
of sebum and make your skin less oily in the long run.
If, for some reasons, you don’t
want to use the oil as moisturizer, you can always add it to your daily cream
or apply it as a mask, every 3 days. I promise, your skin will love it!
