Tamanu Oil And Acne
While there are those self-proclaimed “Acne Specialists” that think that using Tamanu Oil for acne goes against the whole “products for oily skin and acne” industry, they really don’t know what they are talking about. In almost every case, they have never even heard of Tamanu Oil let alone used it.
They are too busy pushing chemical-based oily face products as they get a commission on sales. When you say “well, Dr Oz featured Vanuatu Tamanu Oil as the # 1 Natural Acne Treatment in the world” they try to make out they know more about acne than Dr Oz does. These are people with no real academic training and they are often part of the problem and most certainly are seldom the solution. So just because Tamanu Oil is an oil does not mean that it is not a product for oily acne skin.
There have been various studies on Tamanu Oil uses and it is clear that its extraordinary properties for healing damaged skin are unique. It is used topically (directly onto the skin) and/or as an active, skin care ingredient as in our cosmetic formulations below. Pure Tamanu Oil works effectively as a natural treatment for psoriasis, especially for large scale psoriasis. One of our own staff used our Tamanu Butter formulation to remove all of her stretch marks which formed as a result of a growth spurt during her teenage years – and this was before she ever came to work for Volcanic Earth!
If you want Tamanu Oil benefits for hair then just apply it directly to the hair and scalp. Just remember that it does have a strong aroma so don’t overdo it. In relation to Tamanu oil benefits for skin, again you just apply it directly onto the skin 2-3 times a day initially if possible, as it tends to work faster the more frequently it is applied.
