Looking for the best carrier oil for your DIY skincare products? Look no further! Tamanu Carrier Oil is lauded for its ability to soothe reddened and irritated skin, promote collagen to combat signs of ageing, and support healthy skin regeneration.
Extracted from the nuts of Calophyllum inophyllum tree - a large evergreen plant native to tropical Asia and Wallacea - Tamanu has a soft nutty and woodsy scent. It is rich and thick, and often combined with other carriers to help speed up absorption.
Tamanu Carrier oil is extremely versatile and you can use it for anything from wound-healing to treating a variety of skin conditions. Use it to soothe pesky bug bites, yeast rash, eczema, psoriasis, sunburns, and more.
Often found in many skincare products, this oil contains powerful anti-oxidant, cleansing, and anti-ageing properties. It's great for keeping your skin moisturised, smooth, and radiant. Not only will it help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but it can also help fade scars and stretch marks caused by weight gain or pregnancy!
Tamanu oil is best kept in the fridge - it may need to be gently heated to liquify.
