Why is this blended?
The purpose of Scentuals Beauty Blend products is to get the best of all the oils, think of a skincare cocktail where the main ingredient is the dominant benefit but there are other ingredients working together to give you bonus benefits. Our Beauty Oil Blends provide a balance of different properties, not restricted to just one kind of oil. Tamanu Oil is blended with Vitamin E which both help with scars, acne, stretch marks, and sunburns.
What are the benefits of Tamanu Oil?
Aptly named the 'Green Gold' of skin care and used medicinally for hundreds of years, Tamanu oil is extracted from seeds that grow on a tropical evergreen called a tamanu nut tree. Tamanu oil possesses anti-inflammatory, restorative and antibacterial properties which makes it ideal for treating acne and acne scars on the skin. It is also beneficial for its moisturizing and anti aging properties by restoring the skins barriers. Tamanu Oil can be applied to the skin, added to moisturizers, shampoos or conditioners.
I have sensitive skin, can I use Tamanu Oil?
Yes, because of its natural and organic origins, Tamanu Oil is considered safe for sensitive skin. However, research suggests contact with Tamanu oil may cause allergic reactions in some people. People allergic to tree nuts should avoid Tamanu oil, since it’s derived from a kind of tree nut. It is always recommended to patch test Tamanu Oil if you have extremely sensitive skin or are prone to allergies by dabbing a little on your inner forearm or under your jawline, and wait for 24hrs before applying it to large areas. Please consult a physician or dermatologist with concerns before using.
How long does it take to fade my scars with Tamanu Oil?
The time it takes will be dependent on various factors such as the size and age of the scar, your age and the amount and frequency of application of Tamanu Oil. Some people have reported seeing noticeable differences in scar appearance in a few weeks but remember- regular application is key to seeing best results in the quickest amount of time.
What does Tamanu Oil smell like?
Tamanu Oil has a strong, deep, earthy smell with a touch of nutty notes. The smell isn’t for everyone, but the benefits of Tamanu Oil far outweigh any nose-turning smells it may possess. If still bothered, we recommend mixing it with aloe vera or your favourite moisturizer to dilute the smell at first in order to get used to it.
