Get her a cape because this oil is a super hero!

A French nun, Sister Marie Suzanna, is credited with bringing Tamanu Oil from Polynesia to the West when she used it to treat symptoms of leprosy in the early 1900's. In a recent study Calophyllum Inophyllum, aka Tamanu Oil, was tested for its wound-healing abilities and antimicrobial properties and it was concluded to be an alternative therapeutic option to treat infected wounds*.
This product is really personal for me as I have had a time finding a moisturizer that doesn't break me out. I'm pretty good most of the year with just our Clarifying Serum but when the weather gets colder I need something more and even our own products would break me out. I went on the hunt to find something that targeted my skin type and Tamanu Oil changed my skin. It's now soft, hydrated and happy year round, not just in warmer weather.
The oil does have a very specific smell to it - nutty, earthy and a bit grassy - just as a heads up, but I found that after a couple of days I got used to it and my SKIN FELT AMAZING so I didn't care :)!
