Prepare your Skin for Cooler Weather with Tamanu Oil

As the weather cools, your skin may be experiencing some changes too. Cold weather often lacks moisture and can cause that summer glow to quickly disappear, leaving your skin dry and thirsty. But your skin can still look fantastic this winter with our Tamanu Oil. It is a must-have skin healing and moisturizing tonic with a variety of medicinal and cosmetic benefits.

Unlike most other organs, your skin changes rapidly and is highly impacted by the world around you because it is your outermost layer. Skin has the amazing ability to regenerate new cells and tissues to help the body heal, however depending on certain conditions – including your genetic makeup, hormones, weather and environmental exposure – your skin may need a little boost to get the cell renewal process amped up. That’s when you need Tamanu Oil.

Tamanu Oil is the thick dark green oil that is extracted from Ati tree seeds. It is renowned in the South Pacific and is becoming more popular in the Western world as more and more people discover its extraordinary properties for skin rejuvenation. Tamanu Oil contains a unique combination of elements that make it so incredible. 

First, Tamanu is made up of several types of fatty acids. The more common ones are neutral lipids, glycolipids and phospholipids. A rarer type of fatty acid called calophyllic acid is found in Tamanu Oil. Additionally, a natural antibiotic known as lactone and two other compounds, calophyllolide and coumarin, make this luscious oil a truly miraculous healing, soothing and age-defying serum. These natural elements of Tamanu Oil result in ultra hydration, help reduce swelling and encourage healthy skin cell rejuvenation to relieve discomfort, heal and beautify skin rapidly.

Medicinally, Tamanu Oil has been used for centuries in the Pacific islands to heal a range of skin conditions from injuries, to dryness. Blisters, cuts, scrapes, rashes, sunburns and other burns, scars, bites and stings all benefit from topical Tamanu Oil to clean and heal surface wounds. Tamanu Oil can help moisturize and repair chronic dry skin and issues like eczema and psoriasis as well as seasonal dry skin. Internally, massaging Tamanu Oil onto skin can sooth arthritic and nerve pain as it penetrates deeply into the body.

On a cosmetic level, Tamanu Oil is fabulous for invigorating lackluster skin and helping combat dry air. In the cooler months of fall and winter, skin can loose it’s sheen due to crisp temperatures and winds outdoors, and heating that zaps the moisture from the air inside. By using Tamanu Oil as a daily and nighttime moisturizer, you’re locking the moisture into your skin while also delivering incredible fatty acids and other nutrient-dense compounds. This speeds up the cell renewal process to bring fresh, bright cells to the surface for a younger, more vibrant look.

Be prepared for cooler weather with the ultimate skin healing and moisturizing tonic: Tamanu Oil!

What is Tamanu Oil + How to Use Tamanu Oil

What is Tamanu Oil

Tamanu Oil is magnificently rich all-natural oil that helps heal and protect skin.  It is a multi-purpose skin solvent that supports a variety of skin types and addresses almost any skin condition.  Nutritive dark green Tamanu Oil is found in the hard-pressed dried nuts of the Ati tree, native to the South Pacific.

Tamanu Oil works wonders for skin due to its vast nutritional contents.  First, Tamanu Oil contains an anti-swelling compound known as calophylloide that works to reduce both surface and internal swelling.  Next, Tamanu Oil is bursting with antioxidants like delta-tocotienol, which is in the Vitamin E family.  Antioxidants, including delta-tocotienol, help bolster cells so they are stronger, have self-protecting properties and maintain structure and health for a more youthful look.  Also, Tamanu Oil has plenty of essential fatty acids that are known to increase cellular capacity.

What do all these nutrients mean for your skin?  It means that Tamanu Oil has remarkable healing powers for skin, from helping repair wounded and blemished skin and moisturizing chronic dry skin, to encouraging a more youthful appearance through rapid cell turnover.  All of this happens through a process called cicatrization, when skin regenerates naturally to reveal healthier, more radiant skin.

Tamanu Oil contains natural antimicrobial agents that helps fight infections in cuts, sores, bites, stings, rashes, blisters, acne and other breakouts.  By sanitizing these infected areas, the body is able to accept the nutrients in Tamanu Oil and begin the healing process more efficiently and effectively.  In addition, Tamanu Oil is so hydrating that it absorbs deeply into layers of skin to moisturize and rejuvenate many dry skin conditions and alleviate redness, flakiness and irritation.

As a topical solution for internal pain, Tamanu Oil reaches deeply beneath the surface to address nerve and joint problems.  When swelling causes pain and stiffness from conditions like arthritis and sciatica, Tamanu Oil can help relieve tension and improve mobility by soothing the responsible nerves.

How to Use Tamanu Oil

We know you’ll quickly find Zokiva’s pure Tamanu Oil to be a one-stop healing solution for your skin.  It works beautifully as a daily treat for your skin or to address problem areas.  The rich serum feels silky and smooth, offers a sweet aroma, and works quickly to heal and nourish your skin.

For everyday use, coat your fingertips and apply Tamanu Oil on your face and all over your body for cleansing and moisturizing purposes and to add skin-loving nutrients.  When using Tamanu Oil to repair specific conditions such as blemishes, dry skin, wounds or internal swelling, massage the oil into the affected area several times daily.
