Kukui Nut Oil – An Abundance Of Benefits For Your Skin

Kukui nut oil is an amazing natural skin care ingredient and one we’re thrilled to feature in several of the products in the Sevani skin care line including our Advanced Omega Night Repair Serum and our Phyto Peptide Firming Face Cream.

The Kukui Nut tree is probably the most well known as the state tree of Hawaii where they’ve used this special oil  in many different ways since the Polynesian settlers brought it with them from Asia when they settled the Hawaiian islands.  The Hawaiian people made soaps, lotions and more with the Kukui Nut oil; they  never ate it though – as it resembles castor oil and doesn’t take too good!

They took the various formulations they made from the Kukui Nut oil and used them for natural sun protection, as a hair conditioner/protector, for healing skin issues and keeping skin healthy overall.   The Kukui Nut tree also has a spiritual significance to the Hawaiian people representing hope and renewal.

Much of the rest of the world is just learning of the benefits of this wonderfully light and easily absorbed oil offers for the skin and hair.  Some of the benefits Kukui Nut Oil offers include:

  • High concentrations of EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) which are essential for healthy, vibrant skin.
  • Rich source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C & Vitamin E all of which offer a myriad of benefits for the skin including protecting it from free radicals and other environmental stressors.  These vitamins are all fantastic sources of antioxidants as well.
  • Kukui Nut Oil is so easily absorbed by the skin it makes it a wonderful base for many types of skin care products.
  • As the ancient Hawianns know Kukui Nut Oil  soothes irritated, sunburned or burned skin
  • The oil also helps relieve dry itchy skin, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.

As you can see, this exceptional oil is simply must have!  From its anti aging properties to its natural sun protection benefits and more Kukui Nut oil is a skin specialist’s dream!

I have enjoyed incorporating this lovely, skin care ingredient into Sevani natural beauty products and hope that you enjoy its benefits as much as I do!
