Common Uses: Tamanu Certified Organic Oil is a very popular, all purpose carrier oil. It is used by manufacturers (particularly as a conditioning agent in hair care products), aromatherapists, and massage therapists. It is reputed to have wondrous properties, however all of it's miraculous claims are hinged on anecdotal, not scientific, evidence. There's no harm in using this oil in skin care-like most oils, it is composed of phospholipids and glycolipids, and these are natural constituents of healthy skin and are good water-binding agents. It can be applied neat to the skin or blended with other carrier oils.
Consistency: Solid at room temperature. Product should be heated in a warm water bath in order to liquefy.
Filtering rather than melting is recommended when you want to do the following:
* Produce a room spray using tamanu oil - the stearic and palmitic acid will always sink to the bottom of this type of product as there is nothing for them to blend with. They aren't performing any function in that type of formula anyway.
* Cold-process or low-oil content serums.
* 100% oil/ emollient based serums that are based on low MP oils (most oils have low melting points - below 10C. Those with higher melting points are coconut, palm, palm kernel and some especially designed mineral oils. These high melting point oils give the stearic and palmitic acid something to blend with and help to minimise the splitting effect).
Absorption: Absorbs into skin at average speed, slight oil feeling left on skin.
Shelf Life: Refrigeration after opening is recommended.
Cautions: Persons with nut allergy should not use this oil.
