Tamanu Carrier Oil is cold pressed from the fruit of the Calophyllum inophyllum tree. Although there are several areas where this tree is produced, this particular Tamanu Carrier Oil originates from Madagascar. The fruit (seeds) are hand gathered from the coastal Tamanu Trees, as they are said to yield the highest quality oil. This remarkable, glistening greenish-brown oil is a must have for skin issues. Tamanu is rich and thick and absorbs into the skin luxuriously and slowly. It is best used within a blend with other carriers, because of its viscosity.
Tamanu can help reduce and relieve reddened, irritated, skin prone to blemishes, and offer relief from pesky outdoor bug bites; soothing and repairing as it is applied. Using Tamanu Carrier Oil can help reduce the appearance of scars and marks caused from weight gain or pregnancy. Tamanu is gentle, effective, and promotes restoration and healthy skin growth, which will leave the skin soft and feeling better than new.
Users can expect a shelf life of 2 years with proper storage conditions. It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. Refrigeration is best. Bring to room temperature before using.
