What is Kukui Oil?
This is an ancient Hawaiian secret. Hawaiians have been using this oil on their skin for generations and there's a good reason why.
Kukui Oil is a cold pressed oil from the Kukui Nut. Kukui Nuts are native to the beautiful Hawaiian islands. It is an underrated ingredient in the skincare industry but is gaining popularity as people are starting to realize how amazing it is.
Kukui Oil is lightweight and contains fatty acids like linoleic acid and omega-3 that calm your skin and helps to fight and prevent inflammation. These acids also help the oil get absorbed into your skin more easily, providing moisture to your skin's deepest layers without clogging your pores!
Kukui Oil is loaded with essential vitamins like Vitamins A, C, and E. These vitamins help with moisturizing your skin without leaving it feeling greasy or shiny, but with a nice natural glow.
Vitamin C helps brighten and even out your skin tone.
Vitamin A helps to renew your skin cells and remove dead skin cells.
This oil is amazing for dry skin thanks to the fatty acids. This oil soaks deep into your skin providing lasting moisture. Thanks to the lightweight nature of this oil, it doesn't clog pores and it can reach deep layers of skin that no other moisturizer can. Not even Argan Oil.
Is it better than Argan Oil?
Kukui and Argan oil are very similar and are both great organic moisturizers. However, Kukui Oil has the upper hand thanks to the fatty acids. This is what makes this oil so deeply hydrating. It can make even the driest skin appear healthy and glowy. Our Kukui Oil also contains sweet orange and lavender which help to improve skin texture and prevent pores from clogging. Basically, it's Argan oil's big brother (or sister).
If you like incorporating oil into your skin routine, you'll definitely want give this a try. The benefits of this oil are unmatched by any moisturizer on the market.
