Ingredients & DescriptionThe South Pacific Republic of Vanuatu is the home of a botanical treasure known as the tamanu tree. Traditionally, natives hand-gathered the fruit of only the coastal tamanu trees, for those fruits yielded the highest quality of oil. Following traditional practice, to make True Tamanu, the nuts inside the coastal fruits are hand-cracked and the nut kernels are sun-dried until golden brown. The nut kernels are cold-pressed, without heat or chemicals of any kind. The resulting pure True Tamanu oil is rich, dark green, luxurious, and considered the finest tamanu oil in the world. The collection of True Tamanu fruits helps to keep Pacific island coastal areas pristine. The preparation of True Tamanu® provides income for native people and helps them to maintain an agricultural society. True Tamanu is a beneficial oil of unsurpassed quality, and contributes directly to environmental and cultural sustainability.
Tamanu oil possesses the capacity to promote the formation of new tissue, thereby accelerating wound healing and the growth of healthy skin. Tamanu oil is a widely used traditional topical aid. In Pacific Island folk medicine, tamanu oil is applied liberally to cuts, scrapes, burns, insect bites and stings, abrasions, acne and acne scars, psoriasis, diabetic sores, anal fissures, sunburn, dry or scaly skin, blisters, eczema, herpes sores, and to reduce foot and body odor. Tamanu oil reputedly relieves sore throat when it is applied topically to the neck. The oil also possesses significant pain-relieving properties, and has been used traditionally to relieve neuralgia, rheumatism and sciatica. Polynesian women apply tamanu oil topically to promote healthy, clear, blemish-free skin, and massage it onto babies to prevent diaper rash and skin eruptions.
Suggested use: Apply to any and all skin areas as needed.
