Tamanu Seed Kernel Oil has been traditionally recognised by Pacific islanders for its amazing, yet non-invasive healing properties.
The beautiful Tamanu tree is scattered throughout the tropical South Pacific and Indian Oceans.
Compared to most oil-bearing seeds, the fresh Tamanu seed kernels are unique as they contain no oil. Only when the kernels are removed from the cracked nuts and dried in the sun for 6 weeks, do they shrink, turn dark brown in colour and manifest up to 75% of their weight into an aromatic oil.
Tamanu seed kernel oil has been traditionally recognised by Pacific islanders for its amazing, yet non-invasive healing properties.
The oil’s special composition of anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antimicrobial agents has generated scientific interest regarding positive effects it may have on hard to treat skin disorders.
The tamanu tree has provided a small but growing income for the native people of Vanuatu, contributing in a positive way to their village’s economy.
This prized green oil is extracted by cold pressing kernels of nuts that have dropped from the tree so there is no negative impact on the life or habitat of the trees.
