How to use tamanu oil

The real healing power of this traditional topical oil is its unique ability to promote the formation of new tissues, thereby accelerating wound healing and the growth of healthy skin (anti-aging). The scientific term for this process is “cicatrisation”.

Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It is made up of three different layers – the Epidermis, Dermis and Hypodermis. Within these three layers are various other layers, all with specific functions. Nabakura™ Oil effectively speeds up the healing process by penetrating deep into the underlying connective tissues of the skin and promoting the growth of new skin tissue.

Scientists don’t fully understand the unique cicatrizing properties of the oil as it has an extremely complex portfolio of chemistry that is difficult to decipher or explain. However, scientific studies clearly establish that tamanu oil is a significant healing agent, not only because of its ability to produce new skin tissue, BUT ALSO because of its anti-inflammatory, anti-neuralgic, antibiotic and antioxidant properties.
If you suffer from a troublesome skin condition or know someone who does, then you have stumbled upon a unique product that just may be worth giving a try. While there have been a number of scientific studies on tamanu oil, the research has been limited, due largely to the product not being well known outside Pacific Island countries such as Vanuatu & Tahiti. However, sufficient scientific studies have been done in Europe and the U.S to know that this oil has the unique ability to promote the formation of new skin tissue and that it has many beneficial healing properties.
