Kukui nut oil
The Kukui tree (Aleurites moluccanus) is also known as the candlenut tree. In Hawaii, kukui nut oil is a major element in lomilomi massage and is also traditionally used for baby care. This vegetable oil is cold pressed from certified organic kukui nuts and is especially rich in linoleic and linolenic acid (both unsaturated fatty acids). Thanks to this special combination of fatty acids, kukui nut oil is able to alleviate and heal irritated skin as well as soothing it if afflicted by neurodermatitis and psoriasis. It also strengthens and protects the skin, while keeping it pleasantly soft and smooth.
