Renewing Your Skin With Kukui Nut Oil
Many know the kukui nut tree to be Hawaii’s official state tree and recognize its seeds when strung together as a lei, but there is certainly much to be learned about this unique nut and its health and cosmetic benefits.
Brought over by early Polynesian settlers, the kukui nut’s oils were once used to massage members of royalty. Kukui nut oil promotes and provides nourishment to the skin and does so without leaving the greasy residue commonly associated with other oils. Because it contains Vitamins A, C and E, many use it to this day for its antioxidant qualities, including relief from the following skin conditions:
- Dry skin
- Prematurely aged skin
Below are a few retailers in Hawaii specializing in kukui nut oils:
