Aleurites Moluccana Seed Oil is the oil expressed from the nuts of the Hawaiian kukui nut tree, also called candlenut tree. Kukui nut seed oil is used in many types of cosmetics and personal care products including bath products, cleansing products, shaving preparations, skin care and hair care products. This oil is mostly known for its skin moisturizing properties. Another quality Aleurites Moluccana has, is it’s easily absorbed by the deepest layers of the skin, and forms a protective barrier on the outer layer that can protect against environmental damage. Furthermore this nut oil is also a great hair moisturizer from root to tip. The amino acids and essential fatty acids present in the oil penetrate the hair shaft and leave hair looking healthy and moisturized.
