Kukui oil has been used on the island of Hawaii for centuries, after first being introduced by Polynesian settlers. Traditionally, Kukui was used to protect the skin of babies from sun, salt, and other elements. Kukui has also been used to treat burns, wounds, and skin irritations, as well as to massage members of royalty (often up to seven hours of application)
In modern times, the oil is used in very similar methods. Prized for its rejuvenating and soothing effects on the skin, along with the fact that it does not leave a greasy or oily film, kukui oil is widely used as an effective skin treatment. Kukui is known to be an excellent moisturiser, and is extremely useful when applied to dry or damaged skin, due to its quick absorption into the skin. Kukui is also an effective treatment for burns, including sunburn and windburn, chapped or dry skin, acne, scars and legions, as well as dry hair and scalp.
Kukui oil has high levels of fatty acids (oleic, palmitic, alpha-linoleic, and linoleic), as well as vitamins A, C, and E, which provide skin-protecting antioxidants.
