Who doesn’t desire soft, supple skin that just begs to be touched…
…especially during the winter, when your skin is bombarded by cold air outside, dry, hot air inside and wind gusts that chill you to the bone?
Skin oils have long been a staple of skincare. Rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, these oils soak deep within your pores to deliver lush, youthful hydration in each drop. They come from nuts, fruits and seeds of countless plants around the world, many of which have been used by the native people of that area for centuries!
Sure, you may have heard of avocado, sweet almond or argan oil, but we’d love to introduce you to three exotic oils you may not have heard of that truly shine for their ability to help your skin positively glow with radiance!
Endemic to the Indian sub-continent, neem (Azadirachta indica) is an evergreen tree that has long been a staple of traditional Ayurvedic wellness practices. Neem oil is a vegetable oil pressed from the fruit and seeds of this tree and is found in many cosmetics and skin care products today.
The benefits of neem have long been documented, dating back to ancient Sanskrit texts and Hindu wellness traditions. It is known by several names in Sanskrit, such as Arista (translating to: “perfect, complete and imperishable”) and Nimba (from the phrase Nimbati Syasthyamdadati, translating to: “to give good health).

Tamanu oil is obtained by pressing the seeds of Calophyllum inophyllum, a tree considered sacred in Polynesian culture and one that is usually found near temples and other places of worship. This evergreen is often used as an ornamental plant, as it bears attractive decorative leaves and delicate fragrant flowers.
Also known as Beauty Leaf, tamanu is packed with essential fatty acids such as linoleic and oleic acid, as well as antioxidants. Its remarkable skin moisturizing and protective properties has made it a historically treasured skin oil by the native people of the Polynesian islands, who are more subject to the hot sun, high humidity and ocean winds.
This rich, aromatic oil works to rejuvenate dull, dry skin, soothing and moisturizing as it elevates your skin to its natural radiant glow that you deserve.
