Ingredient Highlight
Tamanu Oil

July 25, 2017

Tamanu oil is a rare and special skin healer with amazing anti-aging properties, that I couldn’t wait to highlight it. It’s one of the 19 pure botanicals used in our Indulge Total Body Elixir. Tamanu oil is derived from nuts grown on the Tamanu tree, and can clear up practically any skin issue. I love sharing the benefits of the ingredients we use because I believe you should know why we we came to use it in our formulas. As a brand that proudly uses no fillers in our products, every single ingredient serves a purpose. Tamanu oil has so many benefits, which is why it was the perfect ingredient to include in our Indulge Total Body Elixir, which can be used on face, body and hair.

Tamanu is one of those oils that’s effective for oily skin. We’re taught to steer clear of oils when we have oily skin, however, the right combination of oils can actually balance both oily and dry skin. That’s what I strive for when creating a product because I like products that are beneficial to all skin types and don’t require you to buy a million different products for every single issue your skin is dealing with. It’s also great for environmentally stressed skin, which we all pretty much have!


See the list of tamanu oil’s benefits below:


  • Heals acne and acne scars
  • Treats eczema and psoriasis
  • Treats wrinkles and stretch marks
  • Treats age spots, skin rashes and dermatitis
  • Accelerates wound healing
  • Promotes the formation of new tissue & rejuvenates skin cells
  • Heals burns, sores and rashes
  • Treats dry and scaly skin
  • Rejuvenates scalp
  • Protects skin from heat and sunburn
  • Treats rheumatism
  • Prevents diaper rash
  • Protection against UVA and UVB rays

In addition to the benefits listed above, tamanu oil contains antioxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, thus it treats many skin conditions penetrating the skin’s layers where the infection begins. Our tamanu oil, sourced from Madagascar, is certified organic, cold-pressed and unrefined.

Try adding tamanu oil to your beauty routine with our Indulge Total Body Elixir. Indulge, as all of our products, is multi-use and can be used on skin, hair and nails. Have you used tamanu oil in your beauty ritual before? If so, let me know in the comments!
