PALM PROJECT Gardener's Tamanu Soap (Large Oblong)

$8.57 NZD
One Coconut Tree produces Coconuts quickly and regularly for up to 75 years.  When prepared naturally and traditionally, using a wet-milling process and with minimal heating, it contains a powerful list of antioxidants.  Additionally, because of its unaltered chemical structures, it is readily absorbed by our skin.

Fresh from the nut of the Tamanu Tree, which is indigenous to the Pacific, Tamanu oil has been used by the people of Uluveu Island for hundreds of years.  Recognised for its combined anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal qualities which help to heal wounds, cuts, scrapes and skin diseases quickly and effectively, it also acts as a natural deodorant.  This oil contains high levels of antioxidants and is very effective at minimising the conditions that can produce Melanoma.


Virgin Coconut oil, sodium hydroxide*, Tamanu oil, Tea Tree oil, Frangipani.

Palm Project is a community based programme initially formed to make soap to assist with the eradication of the increasing cases of scabies, louse and skin infections. The soap has become so valued that Palm Project is now in phase two of the project and hopes to turn the soap making into a business that will improve the livelihoods of the whole community.
