BonneVieCollection's Shop Announcement

100% Tamanu Oil from the Island of Vanuatu.
The extraordinary healing properties of Tamanu Oil have been long admired by the natives of Melanesian and Polynesian cultures. They regard this amazing oil as one of nature's sacred gifts and sometimes refer to it as the Sacred Oil of Tamanu or Green Gold!

The real healing power of this traditional topical oil is its unique ability to promote the formation of new tissue, thereby accelerating wound healing and the growth of healthy skin (anti-aging). The scientific term for this process is "cicatrization".

Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It is made up of three different layers: the Epidermis, Dermis, and Hypodermis. Within these three layers are various other layers, all with specific functions. Tamanu Oil effectively speeds up the healing process by penetrating deep into the underlying connective tissues of the skin and promoting the growth of new skin tissue.

Scientists don't fully understand the unique cicatrizing properties of the Oil, as it has an extremely complex portfolio of chemistry. However, scientific studies clearly establish that Tamanu Oil is a significant healing agent, not only because of its ability to produce new skin tissue, but also because of its anti-inflammatory, anti-neuralgic, antibiotic and antioxidant properties.

BioScience Laboratories conducted a study of Tamanu Oil's ability to improve the appearance of scars. Six subjects with obvious scars aged for one year or more participated in the test. Subjects were not allowed to use moisturizers on their scarred areas for seven days before the test or throughout the nine-week test period. Scars were rated for roughness, length, width and degree of difference from surrounding normal skin. Measurements of darkness and redness were also taken for the same scarred and surrounding normal skin. Digital photos of scars were taken prior to initial application and at the end of week nine, Tamanu Oil was applied to the scarred area twice daily for nine consecutive weeks. There was significant improvement in appearance of scars after six weeks, and improvement continued through week nine. Scar length was reduced by an average 0.28 centimeters, and width was reduced by an average 0.12 centimeters.
