What is Tamanu Seed Oil ?
Tamanu Oil is a natural nut oil produced from the nut kernels of the Tamanu Tree using Cold Pressed Extraction Method. Tamanu (Calophyllum Inophyllum) is a species with several varieties that can be found in parts of South-East Asia, Southern India and Melanesian Islands.
Tamanu is an evergreen tree and a member of the Mangosteen family. It is a slow growing tree and can grow up to 30 metres in height. The Tamanu tree blooms twice annually with fragrant, white flowers, which later yield clusters of yellow-skinned spherical fruit nut,and from this a sticky oil is cold-pressed to make a greenish yellow oil similar to olive oil. It takes a lot of Tamanu Nuts to produce a small quantity of oil – in fact, it takes around four trees to produce approximately 20 Litres of pure Tamanu Oil, depending on the size and yield of the trees!
How does Tamanu Oil work?
The healing power of Tamanu lies in its ability to promote the formation of new tissue and therefore accelerate wound healing and growth of healthy skin.
Scientific studies clearly establish that Tamanu Oil is a significant healing agent, not just because of its ability to help produce new skin tissue, but also because it has anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, anti-fungal and antioxidant properties.
Tamanu Oil possesses a unique fatty acid, Calophylllic Acid, which supports the regeneration of new tissue. Other components include Lactone (antibiotic), anti-inflammatory agents such as Calophyllolide and Courmarins as well as other types of lipids.
The healing properties make this oil effective for a number of skin ailments:
Apply topically, directly to the surface of the affected skin. May be used 2 to 4 times daily if necessary. The oil absorbs readily into the skin, leaving skin smooth and soft without heavy residual oiliness.
Keep in a warm, dry place. The oil may solidify at cold temperatures. If solid, place the bottle in lukewarm water for 30 seconds.
