Kukui oil has the unique ability to protect, heal and soften the skin without leaving a greasy film. It has been known to heal cuts and sunburns and is a go-to moisturizer for Hawaiian surfers.
How can it offer so many skin benefits? It’s a very light oil that’s easily absorbed by the deepest layers of the skin, and it contains many skin-loving vitamins and antioxidants, including A, C and E. Additionally, it has high percentages of linoleic and alpha-linoleic acids, which are essential fatty acids.
Here are a few great ways to reap the benefits of Kukui oil:
Use as a daily moisturizer for your skin
Dab a drop or two under and around your eyes for extra hydration
Place a couple of drops onto the palm of your hands and then gently run your fingers through dry hair to add moisture and shine
Rub a few drops onto chapped skin, sunburned skin and scrapes
