Mango Butter exhibits excellent moisturizing for formulations and exhibits good lubricity on skin. It melts readily at skin temperatures to counter dry skin. As an excellent emollient with healing and regenerative properties it is a good source of essential fatty acids.

Arnica Oil & Arnica Extract

Our Arnica Oil and Extract are both prepared from the flowers of Arnica montana plants which are Custom Wildcrafted especially for this use in their native wild habitat in the Italian Alps and are then carefully shade-dried to retain their full color and aroma.

A number of flavonoid glycosides have been identified in arnica. Flavonoids (0.4% to 0.6%) include the following: betuletol, eupafolin, flavonol glucuronides, hispidulin, isorhamnetin, luteolin, patuletin, spinacetin, tricin, 3,5,7,-trihydroxy-6,3',4'-trimethoxyflavone, kaempferol, quercetin, kaempferol and quercetin derivative, jaceosidin, and pectolin-arigenin.

Isomeric alcohols include arnidiol and foradiol.

Terpenoids in arnica include the following: arnifolin, arnicolide, and the sesquiterpenes helenalin (and derivatives) and dihydrohelenalin. The pseudoguaianolide ester helenalin methacrylate has been isolated from the flowers. The quantity of sesquiterpene lactones varies widely among species and geographical location, making standardization of preparations difficult.

Amines present in the plant are betaine, choline, and trimethylamine.

Coumarins include scopoletin and umbelliferone.

Carbohydrates, such as mucilage and polysaccharides (eg, inulin), are found in arnica. Two homogeneous polysaccharides include an acidic arabino-3,6-galactan-protein and a neutral fucogalactoxyloglucan.

Further polysaccharide isolation has been performed on a group of water-soluble acidic heteroglycans.

Volatile oils (0.3% to 1%) may be obtained from rhizomes and roots or from flower parts and are used in perfume.

Constituents in the oil include thymol, its derivatives, and fatty acids (eg, palmitic, linoleic, myristic, linolenic). The fatty acid content in arnica leaf essential oil has been evaluated as well. Other components found in arnica include bitter compound arnicin, caffeic acid, carotenoids (alpha- and beta-carotene, cryptoxanthin, lutein), phytosterols, resin, tannins, lignans, and anthoxanthine.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is an organic source of bioavailable sulfur crucial to body function and structure found naturally in the body and in all living organisms. MSM is a dietary derivative of DMSO. MSM is often overlooked as an essential nutrient. Though necessary for life, unfortunately for various reasons, the amounts of MSM necessary for normal human health are not typically found in today’s average diet.

The skin is a vital organ in the body; in fact, it is the body's largest organ. The structure of the skin is held together by collagen. Collagen is also important for cellular tissue and bones. MSM helps to replenish and repair damaged skin and wound healing. If MSM supplies are depleted, the result may be dry, cracked, damaged and wrinkled skin. MSM skin care products can help maintain collagen health by bonding it together thus aiding in the formation of flexible bonds between cells.

MSM Powder can be used both internally and externally. When applied on the outside of the body it penetrates through the skin (or scalp) very rapidly and improves the health of that area where it is absorbed.

MSM is also a "carrier." It carries other substances along with it as it penetrates through the skin. Thus, MSM is the ideal substance to combine with other nutrients which are intended to be taken directly into the body through the skin.

MSM is often referred to as a "penetrant." It makes the walls of individual cells more "permeable." This means that the cells can more easily get rid of garbage that is constantly being created inside the cell, and the cell can also absorb nutrients more easily.

Tamanu Oil - Unrefined, Cold Expeller Pressed, Wildcrafted, FCC, Food Grade

Our Tamanu oil has a rich, deep scent with a bold dark color.

Recent research has revealed that tamanu oil is a significant topical healing agent with skin healing, antineuralgic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties.

When the fruits of theC. inophyllumtree are collected and cracked open, the blonde nut kernel inside contains little evident oil upon pressing or grinding. But when the kernel is dried on a rack for a month or so, it turns a deep, chocolate brown, and becomes sticky with rich oil. Once this transformation has taken place, the oil can be easily extracted from the dark kernels using only mechanical pressing. The resulting Tamanu oil has a rich texture and greenish-amber color. The means by which the Tamanu kernel becomes oily remains unknown. At present, no studies explain this process.

Tamanu Oil and Cicatrization

Tamanu oil applied to wounds possesses the capacity to promote the formation of new tissue, thereby accelerating healing and the growth of healthy skin. This process of forming new tissue is known as cicatrization.

Lipid Composition of Tamanu Oil

The oil of tamanu contains basic classes of lipids (fats), enumerated below.

General lipid composition

Neutral lipids






Neutral lipids



sn-1,3 – Diaglycerides


sn-1,2 (2,3) – Diaglycerides


Free fatty acids




Sterols, sterolesters and hydrocarbons





Acylated sterolglucoside











Phosphatidic acid






Anti-inflammatory Activity of Tamanu Oil

Tamanu oil demonstrates anti-inflammatory activity. This activity is due partly to the 4-phenyl coumarin calophyllolide and to a group of xanthones in the oil, including dehydrocycloguanandin, calophyllin-B, jacareubin, mesuaxanthone-A, mesuaxanthone-B, and euxanthone. All the xanthones in tamanu oil show anti-inflammatory activity, which explains reductions of rashes, sores, swelling, and abrasions with topical application of the oil.

Antibacterial and Antifungal Activity of Tamanu Oil

Tamanu oil demonstrates significant antimicrobial activity, as demonstrated in antibacterial and antifungal tests. The oil contains several powerful bactericide/fungicide agents, which demonstrate efficacy against various human and animal pathogens. These antimicrobial phytochemical agents include friedelin, canophyllol, canophyllic acid, and inophynone.

In antibacterial studies conducted in Karachi, Pakistan, researchers discovered the following:

Canophyllic acid demonstrated moderate antibacterial activity, compared with ampicillin and amoxicillin, againstProteus mirabilis (a cause of bladder infections, wound infections, septicemia, and pneumonias, mostly in hospitalized patients).

Canophyllol demonstrated good activity, compared with ampicillin and amoxicillin, againstStaphylococcus aureus (a cause of inflammation, suppuration, abscesses, boils, infected wounds, septicemia, and conjunctivitis),Cornebacteriumdiptheriae (the cause of diphtheria),Klebsiella pneumonia (a cause of septicemia, infected wounds, and infected burns), and Proteus mirabilis (a cause of urinary tract infection, septicemia, and infected wounds).

Friedelin demonstrated good activity, compared with ampicillin and amoxicillin, against S. aureus. In antifungal tests, the same researchers discovered the following:

Friedelin exhibited good antifungal activity against Pseudallescheria boydii, (a cause of fungal keratitis and Madura Foot, a disease in which the foot swells and suppurates, with multiple open sinuses).

Friedelin exhibited moderate activity against Trichophyton schoenleinii (cutaneous fungus occurring in hair, skin and nails, and associated with “jock itch,” ringworm, athlete’s foot, and dermaphytosis of the scalp and beard).

The n-butanol fraction of tamanu oil was examined against various fungal cultures, showing significant activity againstTrichophyton semii andT. Metagrophyte (both cutaneous fungi occurring in hair, skin and nails, and associated with “jock itch,” ringworm, athlete’s foot, and dermaphytosis, a fungal disease usually transmitted from animals to humans in the scalp and beard).

Researchers concluded that the antimicrobial agents in tamanu oil could be used effectively to treat a range of infections of the skin and eyes and to treat ringworm.

Antioxidant Activity of Tamanu Oil

Xanthones and coumarins in tamanu oil demonstrate antioxidant properties, specifically inhibiting lipid peroxidation. Cell membranes are made of lipids. Lipids are organic compounds that are oily to the touch and are insoluble in water but are soluble in nonpolar organic solvents (e.g., chloroform, ether). Lipids include fats, oils, waxes, sterols, and triglycerides. The antioxidant activity of tamanu oil helps to protect skin cells from damage by reactive oxygen species (ROS) and other oxidative antagonists.

Current Tamanu Oil Popularity

Though investigations into tamanu oil have been conducted continuously since the 1930s, only in the last decade has tamanu oil gained any market visibility for general first aid and cosmetic use. Throughout the 1990s much of this market activity was confined to Tahiti, where the pure oil is marketed in bottles for first aid and beauty purposes. In Europe general market interest in tamanu is relatively new, and cosmetic companies are currently marketing products containing this oil. In the U.S. bottled tamanu oil is now also marketed in pure and dilute forms, and it appears as an ingredient in a limited number of cosmetic products.

Tamanu for Topical First Aid

Due to its cicatrizing, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial activities, oil of tamanu is a versatile topical aid suitable for use in a broad range of skin conditions. Oil of tamanu can be applied undiluted directly to skin. There are no reports of adverse effects due to such application of tamanu.

Tamanu for Cosmetics

Oil of tamanu is suitable for general skin and cosmetic purposes. The oil’s mild and pleasant aroma and luxurious feel make it ideal for use in lotions, creams, ointments, and other cosmetic products. Oil of tamanu absorbs readily, leaving the skin feeling smooth and soft. The oil adds a glow to skin, without any residual greasiness or oiliness. Tamanu oil has the potential to be a significant ingredient for companies wanting to develop beneficial natural products.
