WHAT IS TAMANU OIL OR TAMANU NUT OIL?
Many people who suffer from common skin problems have never heard of this fabulous, all natural skin care product and cosmetic ingredient known as Tamanu Oil. Skin care reviews support the scientific data that it is a wonderful skin care healing agent and one of the best anti aging products on the market today. The oil can be used directly onto the skin for fast, effective results for a host of everyday skin conditions. Just apply it 2 or 3 times a day!
At Volcanic Earth®, we have taken Vanuatu Tamanu Oil™ and developed a range of natural skin care products with Tamanu Oil for the whole body (see below). Also check out our Facial Care for more of the best anti aging skin care products using Tamanu Oil including a Facial Moistuizer, an eye cream and a night cream.
WHAT IS THE BEST BRAND OF TAMANU OIL AND WHY?
Volcanic Earth Tamanu Oil is the best brand of Tamanu Oil on the market today because of the consistent high quality of the product. It is certified organic, 100% pure Tamanu Oil that is undiluted, has no additives whatsoever and is never subjected to any chemical filtering or other processes. The end result is a rich, luxurious oil that is thick, dark green in color with its natural nutty aroma. In addition, our Tamanu Oil only comes from the nuts of coastal trees rather than inland or man-made plantations. The Ni Vanuatu say that Tamanu Trees that grow like this by the shoreline produce the best Tamanu Oil. Their belief is that these trees draw additional nutrients from the coral. While this long-standing custom belief has never been scientifically tested, it is true that Tamanu Trees that grow by the seaside can be quite magnificent and prolific when it comes to producing extremely high quality, Tamanu Nuts.
Stay away from black colored or lightly-colored or yellowish-coloured oil. None of these are the real deal and this is why they are so cheap. There is a lot of rubbish oil coming out of Vietnam especially. Black Tamanu Oil occurs where the Tamanu Nuts have been thrown into the fire to try and speed up the curing process. However, all this does is burn the nut and the resulting oil which seriously diminishes its natural, skin-healing and anti-aging properties. Oh and then we have the yellow Tamanu Oil that has been either diluted down with a cheap carrier oil or in some cases, the product has been put through a chemical filtering process. Yes the oil may be a lighter oil but again the product has been chemically stripped of some of its natural components making it inferior and much less effective. While 100% pure Tamanu Oil is expensive, it is the only cure that we know of for psoriasis and things like cystic acne. If you want fast, effective results then you have to be willing to buy only the best quality Tamanu Oil and that comes from Volcanic Earth.
WHAT IS TAMANU OIL GOOD FOR?
Tamanu Oil benefits extend to a wide range of natural treatments for acne and acne scars, eczema, psoriasis, toenail fungus, stretch marks, age spots, skin rashes, general scarring, dermatitis through to anti aging and as an ingredient in making good skin products for oily skin. In fact, one of the major benefits of Tamanu Oil is that it can be used as a stand-alone product, whether it be solely as a product for oily acne skin or for the prevention or reduction of scarring or just for beautiful, blemish-free skin. Not only can you use Tamanu Oil for skin rejuvenation but you can even use Tamanu Oil for hair and scalp rejuvenation as well. It also seems to great for healthy, nail growth.
"I thought I would let you know, I have only been using the Tamanu butter on my very dry heels and feet for a few days now. I was nervous at first over the size of the container, but a little really goes a long way! I have already started to notice the cracked heels start to heal over and the over skin becoming less dry and more smooth. When I make anymore future orders I will be sure to just make them through you. Thank you,

"Thank you for taking the time to help me and for sending me such a thoughtful reply!! I really appreciate it!
As a side note- I have some good news!! I am getting lower on my supply of Tamanu Oil so I will be placing an order again hopefully sooner rather than later! I think it is magical, and I mix it with a small amount of essential oils and its just so wonderful for my skin and hair and my nails wont stop growing, I have to cut them all the time when in the past I could not even grow nails at all. I am really happy with your beautiful product. Its so nice and green too!! Really lovely, and I am so happy to have met you. Thank you again for helping me get through this and your really insightful advice. So GOOD! "

While there are those self-proclaimed "Acne Specialists" that think that using Tamanu Oil for acne goes against the whole "products for oily skin and acne" industry, they really don't know what they are talking about. In almost every case, they have never even heard of Tamanu Oil let alone used it. They are too busy pushing chemical-based oily face products as they get a commission on sales. When you say "well, Dr Oz featured Vanuatu Tamanu Oil as the # 1 Natural Acne Treatment in the world" they try to make out they know more about acne than Dr Oz does. These are people with no real academic training and they are often part of the problem and most certainly are seldom the solution. So just because Tamanu Oil is an oil does not mean that it is not a product for oily acne skin.
There have been various studies on Tamanu Oil uses and it is clear that its extraordinary properties for healing damaged skin are unique. It is used topically (directly onto the skin) and/or as an active, skin care ingredient as in our cosmetic formulations below. Pure Tamanu Oil works effectively as a natural treatment for psoriasis, especially for large scal psoriasis. One of our own staff used our Tamanu Butter formulation to remove all of her stretch marks which formed as a result of a growth spurt during her teenage years - and this was before she ever came to work for Volcanic Earth! .
If you want Tamanu Oil benefits for hair then just apply it directly to the hair and scalp. Just remember that it does have a strong aroma so don't overdo it. In relation to Tamanu oil benefits for skin, again you just apply it directly onto the skin 2-3 times a day initially if possible, as it tends to work faster the more frequently it is applied (again, just don't overdo it).
SIDE EFFECTS: There are no known Tamanu Oil side effects when used as on the skin except for a small group who can have an allergic reaction. This is why we recommend that you test it on a small area of the skin first.
TAMANU OIL HEALTH BENEFITS
In addition to its use as a significant skin healing agent, Tamanu Oil health benefits extent to the relief of arthritic or rheumatic pain. It has anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-oxidant properties, as well as containinganti-cancer agents.
WHAT IS TAMANU OIL MADE FROM ?
There is ample information elsewhere on this website explaining what Tamanu Oil is made from. Tamanu oil comes from the nut kernels of the Tamanu Nut Tree. Its scientific name is either Calophyllum inophyllum Seed Oil or Calophyllum Tacamahaca Seed Oil, depending on the variety of Tamanu Tree. Indigeneous to Melanesian countries such as Vanuatu and Polynesian countries such as Hawaii, the Tamanu Tree also grows in other tropical countries like Vietnam and Thailand. The tree flowers twice a year and produces clusters of fruit which are spherical (round). Inside these fruits is a nut and inside the nut is a pale, odorless kernel from which the oil is extracted after these kernels have cured naturally over a 6-8 week period. The end result is a rich, dark green, luxurious oil.
