The oil is cold pressed from the nuts of the tamanu tree. Cold pressing assures that the oil’s nutrients and the antioxidants remain undamaged. The process involves crushing and grinding the kernels under a traditional mill stone or in stainless steel equipment and capturing the resulting oil. The heat created by the process is not high enough to damage the oil. Processing temperature cannot rise above 120 degrees F.
