Tamanu Oil is a natural nut oil that is extracted from the nut kernels of the Tamanu Tree after the nut kernels have been left to cure over a 6-8 week period. The scientific name for the Tamanu Nut Tree is Calophyllum inophyllum – an evergreen tree and a member of the Mangosteen Family. This tree is indigenous to the tropical countries such as  Vietnam and South East Asia.


Tamanu Flower and Fruit

The real healing power of this traditional topical oil is its unique ability to promote the formation of new tissue, therebyaccelerating wound healing and the growth of healthy skin (anti-aging). The scientific term for this process is "cicatrization".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 andantioxidant properties.
In addition, Tamanu Oil contains Sc Glucan which provides natural UV protection in that it prevents 85 % of the DNA damage and oxidative stress induced by UV radiation at 1% concentration as a new biological UV filter with a SPF 18-22. (Eur J Pharm. Sci 2007 Mar;30(3-4):203-10. Epub 2006 Nov 9).

The Tamanu Nut Tree is actually indigenous to the tropical areas of Vietnam and South East Asia. The Tamanu Tree has been known by many names. In Vietnam the tree is called Mu U, in Vanuatu, it is also known as “Nabagura”, in Tahiti it is “Dilo” or “Dolno”.


Sun dry Tamanu Seed

The trunk of the tree is usually covered in dark, cracked bark while the leaves are elongated and glossy. Small, sweet-smelling white flowers (with a yellow center) are produced twice yearly. These flowers then give way to clusters of fruit. These start out green but turn a yellowy color as they mature. Inside this thin, fleshy fruit (which is inedible) is the Tamanu Nut .
The Tamanu Nut must be allowed to fall naturally from the tree and the pale-colored nut kernels are then laid out on racks to cure (for 1-2 months). During this process, these kernels turn a brownish-red color and release a strong, rich oil. This oil is then extracted by cold-pressing and filtration.

Tamanu Oil stored at cold places

Tamanu Oil should be stored at room temperature or hotter but extreme heat should be avoided. Precipitation can occur in cool to cold temperatures. This is where the fatty acids tend to separate out. Consequently, shake well before use and keep at room temperature.
Note: Avoid yellow-coloured or lightly coloured oil. Ignore claims of some special extraction process to explain the lighter colour. It is more likely that the oil has been mixed with some other cheap carrier oil (such as olive oil) or it has been subject to a chemical deodorizing process or it comes from the nuts of inland or inferior trees. Always look for 100% pure Tamanu Oil.
