This soft, gentle non-comedogenic oil suitable for all skin and hair types and having a pleasant nutty aroma is hard to find. It doesn't clog pores or leave a greasy film on the skin. Rich in antioxidants, oleic, linoleic, and linolenic acids and known for its incredible emollient, curative, and rejuvenating properties, kukui oil deeply moisturizes, nourishes, softens, soothes, protects, revitalizes, regenerates, and heals the skin, reducing redness and inflammation, improving its elasticity, making its soft, smooth, and supple, preventing dryness and dehydration, evening out the skin tone, improving the complexion, protecting against premature aging, calming itching, helping get rid of acne, blemishes, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, as well as many conditions. It relieves pain caused by sunburn and peeling skin, heals sore and chapped lips, small wounds, cuts, burns, smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes scarring, stretch marks, and cellulite, restores luster to dull and lifeless hair, and acts as a natural sunscreen. Since I started using this kukui oil, I've noticed that my complexion has improved, my skin has become softer and smoother, redness and inflammation is gone, my acne has cleared up, my hair is healthier, some fine lines have faded. In addition to all this, it's as also a great relaxing oil spreading easily, absorbing slowly, and having a great slip and glide, as well an amazing carrier oil, which can be mixed with different essential oils, such as lavender, tea tree, German chamomile, calendula, helichrysum, to enhance their properties. So glad I discovered this amazing product on iHerb. No wonder it's treasured so much by Polynesians.

This stuff is nice on my hands after a long day of dealing with chemicals that make my skin crack. I've mixed it with aura cacias lavender and the nutty smell mixed well. By itself it has a very light nutty aroma. Id like to add that I wouldn't recommend this for pet care, since essential oils can hurt them... But I add that comment to any review of body oil, essential oil or lotions that I review on here. (:
I think I like it better than Argan oil.

I love this oil! My mother bought some back from Hawaii for me to try on my dry skin. I have extremely dry skin and dermatitis which drives me nuts. This has been a god send though. It has improved my flaky dry skin noticeably, and it's not greasy at all. I use it all over, even rubbing it into my scalp with some tea tree oil. I will never be without this miracle!
