DESCRIPTION

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 and was a favoured massage oil for Hawaiian Royalty.

Kukui exhibits rejuvenating and soothing effects on the skin and does not leave a greasy after feel. It is an excellent moisturiser, and is suited for dry or damaged skin and hair.
