#9 Tamanu Oil
Extracted from the Tamanu nut, the oil has been used for generations by people of Indian, African and Pacific Island origin for its medicinal properties. Many people also believed in the oil’s skin benefits. Numerous studies have been conducted on Tamanu oil’s healing benefits and abilities to regenerate skin, and it’s been shown that the oil does increase the production of cells and skin-plumping agents such as collagen and glycosaminoglycan (GAG). These components are important in the healing of scars.
How to use: Use directly on skin. However, as Tamanu oil can cause allergies in a small number of people, please do a patch test if it’s your first time using this.
