Tamanu Oil is obtained from the plant Calophyllum inophyllum, a large, low-branching, slow-growing evergreen tree that can grow up to 20 metres tall and is prevalent along the Mekong River Delta in Vietnam and the islands of Madagascar and Vanuatu. The tree thrives alongside tropical shores, where brackish water is present, and it takes approximately 1 – 2 months after germination before the seedling can be moved into full sunlight, where the plant can begin its lifecycle journey. The tree typically produces fruit after 4 – 5 years of growth, flowering all year round thereafter.
There are a range of benefits that Tamanu Oil offers for your hair and skin, a popular ingredient when looking to help with problems such as:
Reduces Scar and Stretchmarks
Moisturise and Condition Hair
