Be careful when purchasing Tamanu Oil

Stay away from black colored, neon yellow Tamanu Oil.

None of these are the real deal and this is one of the explanations why they are so cheap in the market. Unfortunately there is a lot of rubbish oil coming out of several countries claiming the original Tamanu Oil. When you buy them you have no idea, but on the long term you will notice the difference.
For example the Black Tamanu-Oil, this occurs in the process where the Tamanu Nuts have been thrown into the fire to try and speed up the curing process. There is only one process for the original Tamanu0-Oil.
Any other processes seriously diminishes its natural, skin-healing and anti-aging properties.
The same with the neon yellow Tamanu Oil that has been either diluted down with a cheap carrier oil or in some cases, the product has been put through a chemical filtering process. Yes the oil may be a lighter oil but again the product has been chemically stripped of some of its natural components making it inferior and much less effective. While the original pure Tamanu-Oil is expensive and proven effective for centuries by local medicals. It remains difficult to understand the difference when you buying cheaper Tamanu-Oil, but if you suffer from skin conditions you should only try the original Tamanu-Oil which comes from Tamanu-Europe.     Authenticity and purity is maintained during the entire process.
All ingredients are subjected to a strict quality control and assayed by GCMS and includes a COA. The original Tamanu-Oil™ is no standard cosmetic product, it has a natural woody or nutty smelling, tinted "green/gold", thick of consistency (depending on the temperature). A few drops easily absorbed into the skin and hair. The oil results in a softer appearance of the skin.
There are many type and undiluted Tamanu-Oil™ in the world claiming to be the best, original and 100% pure.
