Botanical Name: Calophyllum inophyllum

Processing Type: Unrefined

Description: This variety of Tamanu Oil originates from Vietnam. The fruit (seeds) are hand gathered from the coastal Tamanu trees, as they are said to yield the highest quality oil. It grows up to three meters tall, sporting cracked, black bark and elliptical, shiny leaves. The Tamanu tree blooms twice annually with fragrant, white flowers, which later yield clusters of yellow-skinned spherical fruit.

Color: Dark green to brown mobile liquid.

Aromatic Description: Tamanu Carrier Oil - Virgin (Vietnam) has a slightly green, nutty scent.

Common Uses: Tamanu Virgin Carrier Oil is reputed to have wondrous skin benefiting properties. It can be used in skin care products, as it is composed of phospholipids and glycolipids, which are known to help protect the skin’s moisture barrier and are natural constituents of healthy looking skin. Tamanu is a powerful soothing oil for topical use. It can be applied neat to the skin or it can be blended with other carrier oils. This oil revitalizes and improves the texture of skin, giving it a fresh look.

Consistency: This oil is a clear liquid at room temperature and may solidify in temperatures below 20 °C.

Absorption: Absorbs slowly into skin, yet leaves no apparent oil residue afterwards.

Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.

Cautions: Persons with nut allergy should not use this oil.

Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.

This oil is very fragrant. The scent reminds me of pecan flour. At first, I wanted to use it in a facial oil with other carrier oils and 3% neroli EO, but it totally overpowered the neroli. I was a little unsure about it at first, but then I paired it with more earthy EOs like frankincense, patchouli, carrot seed, and benzoin and oh my, is that ever fabulous! It gives the formula a very rich scent that I totally love! It has a nice texture, too. I wouldn't use tamanu in all my products due to the specific scent, but in some of them it's a very valuable asset.

Love this oil, adds really nice to a bath or rubbed on skin. It makes my skin glow, everyone always compliments on my radiant skin and it's all because of tamanu oil! This oil has a nutty smell, which I've grown to love, it's thick but absorbs into skin well.

I bought both the Vietnam and Madagascar tamanu oils to see the difference. The vietnam oil is not as thick, but it works as well or better for blending with other oils and pours out better - but it is still definitely a thicker oil. The madagascar version is thicker. This source works great on the skin and smooths out lovely. After buying both, I will be buying the Vietnam source next time for the cost savings and it works great. Glad to have this as an option.
