Kukui nut oil

Kukui nut oil is a natural moisturizer that has been used for centuries in Hawaii. It is produced by pressing oil from the Kukui nut (or candlenut) tree, and it contains essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants that help to sooth dry skin. The oil is rich in vitamin A, E, omega 9, omega 6 and omega 3. This antioxidant-rich oil is able to prevent the damage from the free radicals. The rich blend of fatty acids, which may have anti-inflammatory effects, can be absorbed into the skin and help to soothe sore muscles and joints. Over the history of Kukui nut oil use in Hawaii, it has been shown to also benefit people with skin conditions like; eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, damaged skin, acne, sensitive skin and babies skin.
