  • Kukui oil

    Kukui Oil has been used by Hawaiians for centuries to keep skin soft and smooth. Traditionally, newborn babies were bathed in the oil as a means of protection from the harsh sun, drying winds and salt water.

    This treasured health and beauty secret is still produced today in the same pure form as it was centuries ago. The Kukui Oil used by Connock London is sourced from a small factory on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. The Connock family has worked with this supplier for over 20 years and Amanda has visited them several times.

    Kukui Oil has outstanding skin-conditioning properties: it is an excellent emollient, highly penetrating to the skin, and it improves skin suppleness and elasticity as well as soothing minor skin irritations. The oil contains very high levels of linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids, Omega-3 and Omega-6. This unique blend of essential fatty acids helps control skin barrier functions and seals in elevated levels of moisture without leaving a greasy film.
