  • Tamanu oil is made from the seeds of the tropical evergreen tamanu nut tree, which is indigenous to Southeast Asia.
  • It is frequently identified by its scientific name, Calophyllum inophyllum seed oil, in numerous cosmetic products. 
  • This oil is suitable for all skin types, especially for mature, sensitive, or scarred skin. 


1. It is packed with nourishing and moisturising fatty acids (oleic acid: 40%, linoleic acid: 35%, palmitic acid: 15%, and stearic acid: 11%), just like other more typical plant oils
2. Calophyllic acid, which gives the oil additional healing and renewing benefits, is what makes it special
3. It contains a special fatty acid called calophyllic acid, a non-steroid anti-inflammatory called calophyllolide, and a natural antibiotic called lactone
4. The lipid Calophyllolide, which is unique to tamanu oil and is not present in any other oil, is also what distinguishes it from other oils


1. Facial moisturizer:
Tamanu oil has strong moisturising properties since it is abundant in higher grade fatty acids like oleic and linoleic acid. It penetrates the skin deeply and traps moisture there, preventing dryness, roughness, and skin cracks. It is one of the greatest oils to use if you have sensitive or dry skin because it helps to make your skin soft and supple.

2. Fights acne:
Tamanu Oil is an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal oil that has demonstrated significant activity against germs that cause acne. Research has shown that Tamanu oil can combat the acne-causing bacteria P. Acnes and P. Granulosum. Simply said, it gets rid of the root cause of acne and lowers the risk of a flare-up. When treating acne scars, its anti-inflammatory and healing effects are particularly helpful because they increase collagen production, calm the skin, and reduce irritation.

3. Treats puffy eyes and dark circles:
Tamanu oil promotes cell turnover, which reduces the appearance of dark under-eye circles. Its anti-inflammatory properties aid in reducing the under-eye puffiness.

4. Potent antioxidant:
Tamanu oil is abundant in potent antioxidants, and thus provides skin with the defence it needs against free radicals. Long-term sun exposure frequently raises these free radical levels; Tamanu oil components bind to these free radicals and lower their activity. It lessens skin darkening, pigmentation, scars, and spots, as well as premature ageing, which is mostly brought on by free radicals.

5. Slows down aging:
Tamanu Oil is packed with strong antioxidants and neo-flavonoids, which scavenge and counteract the damaging free radicals that hasten ageing. The quantity of omega 6 & 9
unsaturated fatty acids maintains the skin's hydration, minimises the look of wrinkles & fine lines, and revives the youthful glow. The creation of collagen is also known to be increased, which slows down aging.
