Our Intensive Stretch Mark Oil is made from a combination of ingredients known for their restorative and healing properties. Tamanu Foraha, which comes from the fruit of the Calophyllum inophyllum tree, is one of them. Its healing properties have been well researched, and tamanu oil is considered to be one of the most active of all plant oils.
The tamanu tree, indigenous to southeast Asia and plentiful in Polynesia, is beautiful – long, spreading limbs dotted with dark and shiny oval leaves. The trees bloom twice annually, and the small white flowers with yellow centers have a captivating scent. The tamanu fruit that follows possesses a large nut, which contains a pale kernel. After a two-month drying process, a rich and thick oil is cold pressed from this kernel.
The sticky oil in its pure, undiluted form has been shown to possess a number of impressive qualities:
- It has anti-viral, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, and it can counteract irritation and reduce inflammation.
- It has a unique fatty acid composition that speeds new cell growth, which means it promotes the healing of damaged skin and assists in the growth and formation of new tissue.
- It helps diminish the appearance of stretch marks and scars, and it aids in relieving minor skin irritations and wounds.
Tamanu oil can be applied directly to the skin, and it also works exceptionally well as a carrier for essential oils and in blends. Its restorative properties and ability to heal damaged skin make it a potent, nourishing addition to our Intensive Stretch Mark Oil.
