What is Kukui Nut Oil?

Unrefined Kukui Seed Carrier Oil is cold-pressed from the kernels – or the “nuts/seeds” – of the Kukui Nut tree to retain high levels of natural polyunsaturated fatty acids. This light oil is used today in all high-quality skin preparations due to its ability to quickly penetrate the skin. For centuries Hawaiians have used Kukui Nut oil to protect skin from salt water, harsh sun, and drying winds.

Kukui nut oil contains healthy fatty acids like linoleic acid and omega-3, which can help calm the skin and reduce inflammation. Due to their high oil content, Kukui seeds were burned to provide light, hence earning the nickname Candlenut. It is ideal for application on skin afflicted by dryness, psoriasis, eczema or any severe condition. It can also be used in hair care, bath products, cleansing products, and shaving products.

Kukui nut oil is absorbed by the deepest layers of the skin and forms a protective barrier which will protect against environmental damage. It is used to treat sunburns, wind burn, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, acne, scars, stretch marks and maturing skin. It is composed of 42% linoleic acid and 29% alpha-linolenic acid, which helps heal the skin, whilst keeping it healthy and nourished.
