Welcome to Hawaiian Kukui Nut Oil
On our journey into the world of exotic oils and butters from around the world not many stand out like Kukui Nut oil. Kukui oil has been used by Hawaiians for centuries to keep skin soft, smooth and radiant. If it is glowing skin you found an excellent oil in Kukui nut and Kukui nut-based products. For instance Eneka Elements Lavender Magnesium Night Cream. Why did we choose this oil to put in our magnesium cream? Check out a few reasons below.
Kukui nut oil penetrates the skin easily and leaves it feeling silky smooth, without the dreaded greasy feeling. It contains vitamins A, C, and E, which are antioxidants known to protect the skin and prevent free-radical damage to the skin cells. Kukui nut oil can leave even the driest, dullest skin looking healthy and radiant. It also works well as an under eye treatment for the prevention and softening of crow's feet.
Kukui oil has outstanding skin-conditioning properties: it is an excellent emollient, highly penetrating and improves skin suppleness and elasticity, as well as soothing minor irritations. It contains very high levels of linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids, Omega-3 and Omega-6. This unique blend of essential fatty acids helps control skin barrier functions and seals in elevated levels of moisture without leaving a greasy residue.
It has been said to treat wounds and burns, and some people feel it is beneficial for the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis. The oil is also an excellent choice for an indulgent massage as it offers glide without excess slip. The caliber of skin healing and protecting properties in this oil alone is superb.
Other popular uses of Kukui nut oil include:
1.Hair and scalp conditioner
3.Relief for sunburned skin
4.Dry skin remedial
6.Stretch marks and cellulite reduction
7.Night time moisturizer
Kukui nut oil is absorbed by the deepest layers of the skin and forms a protective barrier which will protect against environmental damage. In climates of extreme heat this oil is a winner. It is used to treat sunburns, windburn, 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 to nourish and heal the skin.
Hawaiians use Kukui nut oil on dry hair that has been damaged by overexposure to elements such as the sun and wind. The amino acids and essential fatty acids present in Kukui nut oil penetrate the hair shaft and leave hair looking healthy and moisturized. Kukui nut oil can also be used as a treatment for an itchy scalp or dandruff. It has the same regenerative effects on the hair and scalp as it does for the skin.
