What is Tamanu oil and what benefits does it offer?

Tamanu oil, which is made from the nut of the plant Calophyllum inophyllum L., has long been used to treat a variety of skin conditions. This oil has grown in favor recently as researchers look for new natural alternative treatments for numerous skin conditions.

Also referred to as Foraha Oil and Green Gold, Tamanu Carrier Oil facilitates the growth of newer skin and leaves the skin feeling smoother and softer.

Tamanu Oil is recommended worldwide for the treatment of abrasions, burns, diabetic wounds and scars. It soothes, repairs, and diminishes redness, scars, stretch marks, irritation, itchiness, dryness, and peeling.

It prevents blemishes from forming, and it protects against the harsh effects of the elements.

It works to reduce age spots, stretch marks, cellulite, and dryness.


Tamanu oil skin health functions

When used topically, Tamanu oil is a thick, opulent, and viscose liquid. Tamanu oil is a carrier oil that enters the skin at an average rate, gently but efficiently restoring skin health by promoting the growth of fresher, smoother, softer skin.

As well as preventing blemishes from occurring, it is said to calm, mend, and lessen redness, scars, stretch marks, and irritation, including itching, dryness, and peeling. 

Tamanu oil works well year-round to shield the skin from dryness and roughness brought on by the sun, wind, and other harsh impacts of the weather, making it excellent for usage before and after spending time outside.
