What does this mean?

Inci:Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil

A soft oil that is gentle enough to use on a baby’s nappy rash and a man’s shaving bumps, and powerful enough to promote healthy skin.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

An orangey green to dark green oily liquid with a very strong aroma that is partly nutty and partly curry like, made by cold pressing the organic kernels of the evergreen Tamanu Nut Tree. The aroma is not offensive, but it is noticeable. When included in a blend of other materials, the aroma is lessened and it can be masked with some essential oils.
 
It is normal that the oil may go cloudy at low temperatures. This is simply the waxy esters thickening up because of the low temperature. Gentle warming will restore the fluidity of the oil without any damage.
 
The nuts drop from the trees and at that time, they have very little oil content. They are left to dry in a protected place and over a period of time, a thick and sticky oil starts to form. Even then, it is not a lot of oil compared to other oil sources.It takes more than 20kg of tamanu fruit to produce just 1kg of oil, hence the higher price than other oils.
  • Use 1% to 100%.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
  • Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.
Combine Tamanu Oil with Jojoba Oil on skin with blocked pores.
 
Blend it with Rosehip Seed Oil to improve the appearance of the skin.
 
Cautions/Contraindications
None, unless you have a nut allergy. People with nut allergies should be made aware of this.

HOW TO USE IT

  • Beneficial for anti ageing skin care products and useful in daily defence creams. Do not consider it to have a strong SPF, just daily defence.
  • Tamanu Oil is suitable for eczema prone skin and acne prone skin. It sinks in easily without leaving a greasy residue.
  • An excellent oil to use for dry and itchy skin as it moisturises giving a glow and shine to the skin. It is rich in Omega 9 essential fatty acids and works very well to improve the condition of flaking skin and areas of roughness, like knees and elbows.
  • Tamanu Oil is an ideal oil to use in men's skincare products for use after shaving.
  • Use it as part of a massage blend with other vegetable oils. Include Plai and Fragonia essential oils into the blend in sports products.
  • Tamanu Oil is gentle and safe to use on babies to soothe nappy rash.
Hair Care
  • Tamanu Oil softens and moisturises dry and brittle hair.
  • It adds adds volume and shine to the hair whilst helping to minimise split ends.
  • It conditions the scalp but does not leave the hair feeling sticky, lank or heavy.

I can see why it’s called ‘green gold’

I apply this oil to my skin every night, in the morning my acne blemishes look less visible and like they are fading away. My skin also feels soft and the redness and itchiness reduces when I apply it also! I would definitely recommend this product for anyone with acne or eczema prone skin!
