Kukui Nut Oil (Refined)

(Aleurites Moluccana)

Background: The kukui (or candle nut) tree originates from Indonesia and also Hawaii. The clear, slightly yellow oil is extracted from the seed of the kukui nut. This very affordable oil is not the most common, but with now strong availability at Kerfoot, we have great expectations for this oil to be used as a base/ carrier oil in many formulations in the future.

Properties/Benefits: Kukui has a high vitamin A,E and F content, making it extremely effective at restoring and rejuvenating dry and damaged skin. The oil penetrates the skin effectively and is excellent at treating skin conditions and ageing skin.

Recommended Application: Predominantly used in skin applications, but also useful in hair conditioners as it aids in the nourishment of the scalp.
