    Tamanu Oil For Acne Scars

    Tamanu oil possesses a unique capacity to promote the formation of new tissue, accelerating wound healing and the growth of healthy skin. This process is known as cicatrization. This oil makes the skin renew itself really fast, I read that one woman used this on her acne scars for 9 weeks twice a day and it smoothed them out, this would vary on people though according to the depth of your scars. But anyway I've been using this for about a week and it gets rid of the red marks really fast, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will fill in the scars too. So far I'm noticing a little imrovement I don't know if it's all in my head or maybe because this hydrated my skin but I like it. I also read that this oil has antibiotic and antiinflamitory properties too. So you guys should try to look into it.I'll keep you updated on the outcome I'm gonna use it for 3 months and see what happens.

    That sounds pretty interesting. Is this a new product or has it been around for awhile?

    yeah but anything with oil in it such as Tamanu Oil can and will cause breakouts.sounds kinda strange to me.

    Re: Tamanu Oil For Acne Scars

    I haven't seen this at the health store. I think this has been around a long time I don't know why the public was never aware of it, I guess they don't really commercialize or advertise it as much as they do the other common oils. I heard about it from a magazine I got at the health store. You can find this on the internet just do a search for Tamanu oil there's only about a handfull of websites that sell it compare prices cause some sell a 2 oz bottle for 18$ while others charge 10$ more for half the size. THere's a lot of interesting facts about this it helps with all kinds of skin disorders, read into it. I like it because it's 100% natural and it makes my skin feel soft and supple and redness? what redness it's great. I had red marks from pimples I had 2 weeks ago they are now this faint rose color with powder they're almost invisible, before this oil it took months to get rid of the marks now I got results in a week!

    I haven't gotten any breakouts yet and it's been about 9 days now, and from reading testimonials at other sites i haven't heard anything like that either.

    for your info, not all oils cause breakouts. You might want to do a little more research before making such bold statements. Jojoba oil doesnt cause breakouts, neither does camilla oil, neither does vitamin A oil, neither does grapeseed oil....

    you shouldn't be so negative about this,if this oil broke me out I would not be coming on here and raving about it I have nothing to gain by bs-ing people, I don't sell this stuff I'm just another acne sufferer like the rest of the people that come on here who has found something that others might benefit from as well. Well said CuriousP, not all oils will break you out. This oil is meant to heal acne and the scars not cause it, do some research on it.

    What time of the day do you use this? Do you put it on overnight or do you put it on and then wash it off? I think I am going to try this. My skin has cleared dramatically lately and now I want to lighten my redmarks before the holiday!

    I only wash my face once a day at night and put this oil after I wash my face, then in the morning if I have any extra oiliness on my face I just blot my ksin with Johnson and johnson oil blotting sheets, keeps me from haviing flaky, red skin

    Ive been using this for two weeks now, and I use snowdrift farm tamanu oil, it's 100% pure it doesnt have anything else in it. If you have oily skin I wouldn't be putting on olive oil it might break you out.

    anibanani,

    I was just wondering what you did to get rid of your acne? I remember (i think) you saying that you were having problems with acne (maybe it was just red marks) but did you take like accutane or anything?
