Our organically crafted Kukui Nut Oil, also called Candlenut Oil, is cold-pressed from the nuts of the Aleurites moluccanus, widely distributed through Polynesia. It is a semi-clear to light yellow liquid having little or no odor, and blends well with most formulations. Kukui Oil is exceptionally soothing, protective and emollient.

Now the Hawaii's official state tree, Kukui means enlightenment in Hawaiian. For centuries, Hawaiians have used Candlenut Oil to moisturize and protect the skin from salt water, harsh sun, drying winds and other environmental elements.


Kukui Nut Oil is easily absorbed by the deepest layers of the skin, and forms a protective barrier on the skin that protects against environmental damage. It locks in moisture levels by forming a physical barrier to water loss, preventing further dryness and dehydration. Kukui (Candlenut) Oil is used as skin lightener for pregnancy mask and to reduce the appearance of burn scars. It is known that this Hawaiian oil works at the cellular level to help reduce skin redness and inflammation, help skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and dry and chapped skin. Aleurites moluccanus Seed Oil also boosts collagen production and promotes the sloughing of dead skin cells to create space for new cells.

Because Kukuinut Oil is lightweight, it's also a great option for those with finer hair. And while its deeply moisturizing for the scalp and can help ease flaking, Kukui Oil won't clog pores or make hair look flat or greasy. The oil soothes sore joints and muscles which makes it very effective for people with arthritis.
