Monoi Australia's Tamanu Oil is from Tahiti with a unique extraction process.
Tamanu oil has been known for many years to be extremely beneficial for the skin as a cosmetic oil. It is extracted from the kernels of the Tamanu (Calophyllum inophyllum) tree, sometimes referred to as the Sacred Tree in Tahiti.
But, due to its strong nutty scent and deep dark colour from traditional extraction process, it has never been a very popular cosmetic ingredient for markets other than the Polynesian Islanders. Deodorising the oil would make it more attractive for use, but natural properties were deteriorated when applying chemical or natural deodorising processes.
In 2006, a different extracting process was used to achieve a more appealing oil to use.
Monoi Australia's Tamanu oil is from Tahiti and extracted using a unique cold-press process, conserving its natural properties, whilst giving a much lighter colour and scent than traditionally extracted Tamanu oils.
As the deterioration of any natural ingredients is inevitable; Monoi Australia's Tamanu oil is also stabilised to assist in the experience of this cosmetic oil.
