Kukui Nut Oil: An ancient beauty secret is becoming a popular ingredient in many skincare products

Kukui Nut Oil

 

When it comes to the oil from the Kukui nut or seed, you could say that the “cat is out of the bag.”  Up until recently, the benefits of Kukui Nut Oil were an ancient Hawaiian secret. More recently, interest in the oil has grown. In fact, actress Lupita Nyong’o mentioned her use of the emollient on her skin, according to Dana Oliver with The Huffington Post.

Produced by cold pressing oil from seeds of the candlenut tree, Hawaii’s state tree, this natural moisturizer contains essential fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic) and vitamins A, C, and E antioxidants that protect the skin and prevent skin cell damage caused by free radicals.   

Kukui Nut Oil helps to soothe the skin without leaving a greasy film. Livestrong.com points out that it is easily absorbed by the skin's deepest layers and forms a protective barrier to protect the skin from the sun, salt, wind, and other environmental elements. Commonly used as a massage oil, Kukui Nut Oil also finds its way into a range of beauty care products, such as shampoos, body scrubs, and lip balms.

Here’s a treatment that introduces your clients to Kukui Nut Oil's benefits, which is an ingredient in BIOTONE Revitalizing Massage Oil.
