Our Story

"It all started in December of 2018, while scuba diving in the Tuamotus, our story took a twist when my wife started grumbling about relentless mosquito bites. Seeking a remedy, we turned to a local girl at our stay who had a quick solution: 'Go get some tamanu oil! You can get some in the village at the local apothecary. Don't get the diluted kind - make sure it is 100% pure tamanu oil!'

As I tended to my wife's mosquito bites with this unique oil, I couldn't help but wonder about its amazing powers. So, I dived into the world of Tamanu oil, unveiling the scientific research behind it and its coveted status in French Polynesia as a skincare marvel. It even turned out that French Polynesian men embraced it as a post-shave indulgence, which piqued my curiosity and I began using it myself.

My newfound Tamanu oil usage did not go unnoticed. One day, my wife's esthetician couldn't help but exclaim, 'What have you been doing to your skin?' Thinking I was going to be in big trouble, I confessed about my Tamanu oil regimen. But, to my pleasant surprise, she was enamored by my radiant skin and wanted to get her hands on some. I revealed it was the exclusive Tamanu Oil from Tahiti, which, unfortunately, required a return trip to French Polynesia to restock.

Realizing that her clients were also curious about this magical oil, we embarked on an entrepreneurial journey. After a whirlwind of 101 emails, our very first bottle arrived from Tahiti, marking the start of 'Tamanu Oil from Tahiti' right here in the United States. Today, we are thrilled to bring this extraordinary oil to your doorstep, so you can experience its skincare wonders without the need for a plane ticket to French Polynesia.
