Spa and massage clients will be saying ‘aloha’ to healthy skin with Kukui Nut Oil. The oil, which is pressed from the seeds of the Kukui Nut Tree, Hawaii’s official state tree, has been used by native Hawaiians for hundreds of years since it was first brought to the islands by early Polynesian settlers. While the oil had many purposes, skin care was among its most popular because of its high penetrability and soothing properties. In fact, the oil, it’s said, was used to massage members of the Hawaiian royal family.


Kukui Nut Oil contains vitamins A, C, and E to protect the skin. These antioxidants help prevent free-radical damage to skin cells. Today Kuku Nut Oil is a popular ingredient in body creams and lotions because, in addition to its healing and soothing properties, it is readily absorbed into the skin to make it feel smooth and soft without leaving a greasy residue.


Hawaiian Kukui is particularly popular for massage products because it provides glide without excess slip. You’ll find Kukui Nut Oil in BIOTONE Dual-Purpose Massage Creme and Deep Tissue Massage Lotion. Kukui Nut Oil is also one of the key oils in BIOTONE Revitalizing Massage Oil along with Almond and Coconut Nut Oils.


Your clients can enjoy the benefits of Kukui Nut Oil with the the Zone Therapy Body Wrap & Massage that uses Revitalizing Massage Oil
