WHAT's IN IT?

~ Key Ingredients ~

Formulated with soothing ingredients to help lock in the moisture, Intensive Skin Defence Balm is suitable for all ages (from six weeks), all skin types and anywhere on the body.

Polynesian Tamanu Fruit Oil


What sets Tamanu Fruit Oil apart is the lipid Calophyllolide, which is not found in any other oil. This lipid has anti-inflammatory properties to aid in calming and soothing skin conditions such as eczema. Tamanu also promotes the formation of new tissue which then accelerates wound healing.

Sunflower Seed Oil


Sunflower seed oil (Helianthus annuus) has been shown to have both anti-inflammatory and barrier restoring effects. Its major lipid is linoleic acid, which is thought to decrease inflammation in the skin by activating peroxisome proliferative-activated receptor-alpha (PPAR-α).  

German chamomile


Helps soothe skin and ease the itching of eczema and other rashes and reduces skin inflammation. It may also speed healing and prevent bacterial infection. It should not be confused with Roman Chamomile.

Olive Oil, Safflower, Hemp Oil, Candelilla Wax, Japanese Fruit Wax, Sunflower Seed Oil, Tamanu Oil, Zinc Oxide, Calendula Flower Extract, Chamomile Extract, Nettle Extract, Chickweed Extract.

WHAT's UNIQUE ABOUT POLYNESIAN TAMANU FRUIT OIL?

The scientific name of the Tamanu plant is Calophyllum inophyllum which means "beautiful leaf," from the Greek 'kalos' meaning "beautiful" and 'phullon' meaning "leaf."

Although Tamanu oil is new to many in the UK, it was not a passing fad to the many communities who have been using it for medicinal purposes for centuries.Tamanu contains a unique fatty acid called Calophyllic acid, a natural antibiotic called Lactone, and a natural non-steroid anti-inflammatory called Calophyllolide. And what sets Tamanu oil apart is the lipid Calophyllolide, which is not found in any other oil. This lipid has anti-inflammatory properties which helps calm and sooth skin conditions such as eczema, acne, and irritation.

IS THERE ANY SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE BACKING TAMANU OIL's BENEFITS?

A study titled "Anti-inflammatory effects of Calophyllum inophyllum," done by Tsai SC, Liang YH et al, was published in Oncology Reports on September 28, 2012. In this study Tamanu oil was found it to be a very effective anti-inflammatory oil, helping in skin conditions such as acne, rashes, and other irritations such as insect bites, sores, and eczema. 

Another study was done in 2015 entitled, "The Wound Healing and Antibacterial Activity of Five Ethnomedical Calophyllum inophyllum Oils: An Alternative Therapeutic Strategy to Treat Infected Wounds," was published by Teddy Léguillier, et al. This study evaluated the wound healing and antibacterial properties of Tamanu Oil extracted from trees growing in five different locations. They concluded that when used topically Tamanu oil was effective in treating infected wounds and skin diseases such as acne.

ARE THERE ANY STEROIDS OR ALCOHOL IN THE PRODUCT?

Absolutely no steroids and no alcohol and not even from tinctures. Here is the full ingredients list. 

Olive Oil, Safflower, Hemp Oil, Candelilla Wax, Japanese Fruit Wax, Sunflower Seed Oil, Tamanu Oil, Zinc Oxide, Calendula Flower Extract, Chamomile Extract, Nettle Extract, Chickweed Extract. 

HOW IS TAMANU OIL MADE?

Polynesian Tamanu Oil is extracted from the nut kernels of the Tamanu fruit which flourishes in the South Pacific islands of Polynesia due to its volcanic atmosphere. 

Volcanoes have an extraordinary effect on their surrounding soil. Not only does volcanic ash provide nutrients to soil, but it also contains minerals that are beneficial to plants. Due to this very reason, the Tamanu Oil originating from Polynesia contains the highest nutritional value, a fascinating chemistry and numerous skincare benefits backed by scientific research.
