This thick, rich oil comes from the nut found in the center of the yellow fruit that grows on calophyllum inophyllum trees. These plants are native to Madagascar and Polynesia, and the oil is often used in Polynesian traditional medicine. Foraha oil develops inside the nuts as they are dried for eight weeks after being harvested. Then, the nuts are pressed to extract the oil, which has a very intense, nutty aroma.
Foraha is also known as Tamanu.
This oil is best known, though, for its amazing skin regeneration properties. It can be used to smooth out scars and stretch marks, soothe cuts and burns, or simply to promote soft, beautiful skin and skin renewal. It also has antibacterial and anti fungal properties. Tamanu oil is a great addition to your carrier oils collection and can be used in body butters, lotions and creams for an additional moisturizing effect.
Our Foraha oil is unrefined and organic, cold pressed from the Calophyllum Inophyllum trees grown in Madagascar.
