Kukui Nut Oil is a light yet highly protecting oil, with an array of skin benefits.
This Kukui Nut Oil is cold pressed from the fruits of Kukui Nut tree to retain high levels of natural polyunsaturated fatty acids.
For centuries Hawaiians have used Kukui Nut oil to protect skin from salt water, harsh sun and drying winds. It is excellent for dry skin, psoriasis, eczema or any severe skin condition.
It is high in linoleic and linolenic acids which are essential fatty acids vital for the metabolism of healthy skin. Kukui nut Oil also contains Vitamin A, E and F, and therefore is good for anti-aging, revitalising and restoring sun-damaged skin and hair.
Kukui nut oil is easily absorbed by the deepest layers of the skin, and forms a protective barrier on the skin that protects against environmental damage.
This light natural oil is used today in all high-quality skin preparations due to its ability to quickly penetrate the skin, leaving it silky smooth.
When added to soap formulations, kukui nut oil increases the creaminess of lather and enhances its conditioning abilities. Ideal to add to lip balms due to its skin protecting qualities.
Kukui nut oil can leave even the driest, dullest, aging skin looking healthy and radiant. Kukui nut oil also works well as an under eye treatment for the prevention and softening of crow's feet.
Users can expect a shelf life of 6 months to 1 year with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended.
