Skin Benefits of Kukui Oil

Kukui oil comes from Hawaii’s own native Kukui tree. The oil that comes from the Kukui nut is used for many medicinal purposes. Hawaiians have been using it for centuries to keep skin smooth, glowing and soft.

 

Natural skin protection

Kukui oil is one of the few ingredients that can seep into the deeper layers of your skin. Also, Kukui oil produces a protective barrier on the top of the skin, which protects it from daily environmental damage. It’s also a calming ingredient, which makes your skin look softer and smoother. The oil also contains omega-3 fatty acids, which have a skin-soothing effect that makes it useful for sunburn treatment and on damaged or dry skin.

 

Great skin moisturizer

Kukui oil is mainly considered as “dry” oil, meaning it doesn’t have a greasy feeling. Kukui is also rich in polyunsaturated acids that act as skin moisturizer and prevent water loss on your skin. That’s why it makes the skin feel so silky smooth and soft to touch without feeling oily or greasy.

Kukui oil also has some awesome skin-conditioning properties. Kukui is an excellent emollient. It’s extremely penetrating and improves skin firmness and can sooth minor irritations. It also contains very high levels of alpha-linolenic and linolenic acids, Omega-3 and Omega-6. This unique combination of essential fatty acids aids in controlling skin barrier and seals in high levels of moisture.

 

Helps your skin with wound and burn recovery

Kukui oil can be used to help treat burns and wounds due to its cooling and anti-inflammatory properties. We’ve seen great results from people who are suffering from psoriasis and eczema. Since scars and stretch marks form when your skin loses too much water, kukui oil is said to help by deeply penetrating your skin layer then seal moisture in.

The secret is out and kukui oil isn’t just a Hawaiian trick anymore. Say “aloha” to better skin and natural skin healing. At Peace of Mind Natural, we use kukui oil in our Rose Clay Soap. Made with rose clay and kukui oil, this soap is perfect for sensitive skin. Rose clay gently coaxes excess oil out of your skin to help prevent clogged pores and promote skin health. It gently cleanses and draws out impurities while moisturizing. Castor oilis added to soothe damaged skin cells.
