Why Tamanu Oil Has Remarkable Healing Power

For example, Japanese researchers at Meijo University found that several isolated chemical compounds in tamanu inhibit skin tumor production. And a Canadian research team at the Université de Sherbrooke discovered that tamanu contains two chemicals called HIV transcriptase inhibitors.

Tamanu oil contains 3 essential classes of lipids: neutral, glyco-, and phospholipids. Additionally, the oil contains 3 unique and novel compounds:

  • Calophyllic acid
  • An anti-inflammatory called calophyllolide

Used in skin care not only does is aid in healthy skin but it is also a good water-binding agent or humectant. Why is water binding important? Because there is constant water loss in the epidermis due to evaporation. This is called Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) and amounts to several ounces a day. Skin also loses water through sweating. Without constant re-hydration, skin wrinkles more easily. A humectant helps to bind water to the skin, keeping it more hydrated and reducing the formation of wrinkles.
