    The Importance of Virgin, Cold-Pressed Oils for Skin

    What are Carrier Oils

    Oils used for moisturizing the skin, often known as carrier oils, are a rich source of fatty acids obtained from the nuts, kernels or seeds of plants. These oils hydrate and support skin's natural processes, among many other benefits. 

    The purity and processing of oils are vital to delivering maximum benefit for skin when applied. When oils are unrefined (virgin) and cold-pressed, they are extracted using only low, controlled temperatures and mechanical methods. No chemicals or excess heat are used, allowing the phenolic compounds, tocopherols, sterols phospholipids and other skin-loving components to be preserved.  

    How to Use Tamanu Oil:

    • Use as a facial moisturizer to hydrate and soften skin.
    • Apply directly on dry, flaky skin anywhere and massage in gently for instant relief and comfort.
    • Tame frizzy hair by rubbing a few drops between your palms and combing fingers through strands, focusing on the ends.
    • Add a drop of tamanu oil to your liquid foundation, bronzer, or moisturizer to achieve a luminous glow. This can prevent coverage from looking dry and caky.
    • Soften a scratchy beard by applying a drop or two of tamanu oil and combing through. Can also be used to soothe irritated post-shave skin on the face and neck.
    • Apply a small amount of tamanu oil to dry, cracked feet and heels before bed to wake up with soft and nourished feet. Put on a pair of clean socks to avoid staining sheets.
    • Replenish dry cuticles by massaging a drop of tamanu oil in with fingertips. Repeat as often as needed.

    Organic Tamanu Oil

    I love using this oil at night! Because it is calming, renewing... and because leaves oily residue and has natural smell I don't like... but I like the overall effect. I'm using it for about month.

    Thank you for your review!
    Moisture in winter

    This works really great to moisturize me winter skin. The smell is not the best but it works well and is natural. Going to try it on my scalp next.

    Thank you for your review!
    Smells terrible but that’s tamanu for you!

    Okay, the tamanu oil smells like curry. But that’s the only downfall! It isn’t sticky and absorbed in my skin overnight. My mom tried it also and she said she liked it!

    Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback.
    This stuff works wonders!

    Loved the way it left my skin feeling. So smooth and healed my cracked skin. The winter really dries out my hands and this helped moisturize it completely. Looking forward to more of the natural healing wonders.

    Thank you for your review!
    Am loving it ❤️

    My skin was in big need of some hydration. My face was becoming so dry to the point where it was just painful to make facial expressions. This magic little potion turned that around. It has helped so much in bringing my skin back to normal. It’s not all the way healed, but it is certainly getting there. The only thing I would say is not the best is the smell. It’s kind of weird and strong, I don’t mind it so much though as long as it works, which it does. So I’m happy with it and glad I made the purchase.

    Thank you so much for the review!
