100% Calophyllum Tacamahaca (Tamanu) Seed Oil* certified organic
It’s hard not to feel inspired when you’re out exploring the serene South Pacific Island of Vanuatu. But it wasn’t until I met with local Ni-Vanuatu women and started a conversation about their glowing skin that we were introduced to the healing power of tamanu oil.
Beaming with happiness, they told me that tamanu trees absorb dense nutrients from the minerals present in soil and water, giving it its potency once the nuts are harvested and cured.
Curious and excited, I wanted to see if this was something I could share with our tribe. And before I could share this exquisite oil, I had to try it out on myself and witness its magic.
I trialled this oil for six months, I wanted to invest the time choosing a source that is ethical and does no harm to our mother earth.
One of the immediate changes I felt was the softness and suppleness of my skin. As active merbabe who enjoy good times under the sun and the sea, introducing tamanu oil to my daily routine has definitely made my #BeautyRitualGame stronger than ever.
In a nutshell, my journey in creating this Mermaid Elixir was wholesomely enriching and soul-soothing.
From finding the most beautiful tamanu trees to working with Ni-Vanuatu growers who harvested the nuts with utmost care and passion, I couldn’t be more elated to share a product that has been nurtured mindfully from start to finish.

What is the colour of natural tamanu oil?
When it is naturally formed on nut kernels or cold pressed, tamanu oil has a beautiful dark green colour. Avoid tamanu oil that appears black or dark brown. It may indicate that extreme heat was used to cure the oil to speed up the process. Extreme heat will alter the natural properties of tamanu oil.
What is the texture of pure tamanu oil?
Tamanu oil is a rich luxurious oil with medium consistency. It absorbs readily onto skin leaving no greasy residue.
What is the smell of natural tamanu oil?
Tamanu oil has a naturally nutty aroma that is slightly earthy. We find it super soul-soothing!
Is patch test recommended before use?
Always do a patch test on wrist before use.
Is tamanu oil suitable for someone with nut allergy?
As our tamanu oil is naturally derived from nut kernels of tamanu tree, we do NOT recommend the use of tamanu oil if you suffer from nut allergy. Please seek professional advice before use.
What is the shelf life of tamanu oil?
Two to three years. Tamanu oil stores well under any condition but extreme heat will lessen its shelf life. Once opened, we recommend using it within twelve months.
Does tamanu oil store well at cold temperatures?
Tamanu oil may naturally separate or solidify at cold temperatures. It may be liquefied in a pot of simmering water, in a microwave, in the sun, or at a temperature exceeding 85 degrees. These will NOT alter the properties of tamanu oil.
