In the modern era, clinicial studies have examined the natural benefits for the skin. Kukui is shown to be a good source for a-linolenic acid which has been found to help maintain the cellular structure of the epidermis. Skin care products containing Kukui Oil have a unique absorption rate that provides an effective substate in which to to supply vitamins to the skins many under-layers. Pure Kukui oil is a natural relief for the pain, itchiness, redness, and tenderness of most types of psoriasis. Lotions and creams formulated with Kukui oil are also effective as a skin relief for psoriasis's many symptoms.
The Kukui Nut is a flowering tree that grows throughout the tropics. In different regions it is known as the Candlenut, Candleberry, Indian walnut and Varnish tree. Different parts of the tree have different uses. It is sometimes used for cooking as well as for medicinal purposes. Particularly in Hawaii, the Kukui Nut has been put into many uses. The husk was made into medicines, while the flowers and nut shell are used to make lei. The wood of the Kukui Tree was also the material of the traditional canoes of Hawaii.
Commercially, the Kukui nut itself is probably the most important resource, particularly its rich oil. Traditional Hawaiian practices used the oil for everything from annointing oil, to suncreen, as well as skin medication for burns, wounds, and rashes such as psoriasis. The rich oil was also the fuel for candles. Later, wood furniture was treated with Kukui as a varnish and preservative. The nut itself has also been charred and used as ink for traditional Hawaiian tatoos.
Hawaiians also utilized the Kukui's oil to protect their skin from the damaging effects of the sun, wind, and ocean water. They found the oil to be soothing after sunburns and for common skin disorders such as dry skin, psoriasis and eczema. And long before cosmetic surgery and modern treatments, Kukui oil was used to smooth wrinkles!

… Two months ago, my daughter was diagnosed as having psoriasis. Nothing worked until this week when I tried the Kukui Oil. The psoriasis is nearly gone. I know nothing cures psoriasis. Never mind. Kukui Nut Oil sure puts in into remission quickly. You can't imagine how important that is for a little 13 year old girl.
… I am a registered nurse and would like any clinical/scientific info on this oil and others that you could send to me. I feel certain that Kukui nut oil could not only help people with dry skin and psoriasis, but I bet it would also help reduce scar formation. Thanks for a great product and I wish you all kinds of success.
