Indigenous to tropical Southeast Asia and the South Pacific, the Tamanu tree can be found in Fiji, Tahiti, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and throughout the Melanesian and Polynesian Islands. The natives treasured the dark, rich oil extracted from the fruit because of its ability to help protect their skin from environmental elements such as the sun and wind. This sacred ingredient was also used for helping to resolve cuts, scrapes, burns, swelling, sores, acne, rashes, blisters, insect bites, eczema and rosacea. Additionally, research shows Tamanu demonstrates antioxidant activity that can help protect from oxidative damage and reduce the visible appearance of scars.
