Tamanu and Macadamia Oil (V)100% SSL Secure
Rich, smooth oil with a natural woody aroma.
We import tamanu oil direct from the South Paciﬁc island of Vanuatu. It is wild-harvested. It contains an unusual antibiotic lactone and a unique non-steroidal anti-inﬂammatory agent, Calophyllolide. Tamanu also contains anti-microbial compounds. Several of the fatty acids encourage skin cell growth which makes it ideal for treating many skin conditions. This property also means that tamanu is considered anti-ageing.
Macadamia nut oil is a natural emollient, easily absorbed by the skin. It is deeply moisturising as well as anti-inflammatory. The high Palmitoleic (Omega 7) fatty acid content make macadamia nut oil very compatible with the skin, while helping to stimulate collagen production. It provides the essential fatty acids vital for a ﬁrm, smooth appearance. Keeps the skin supple, youthful and elastic, with a satin-looking ﬁnish.
