Vanuatu Tamanu Oil Hits Oprah Inspired Television Show
Volcanic Earth, a well-known Vanuatu skin care manufacturer and exporter reported that orders for Vanuatu-produced Tamanu Oil came pouring in from all over the United States and Canada following exposure recently on “The Dr Oz Show” on the best natural cures from all around the world.
The show itself is a joint endeavour of Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions and Sony Pictures Television. Dr. Mehmet Oz, a world renowned surgeon and host of the show, reaches millions of viewers weekly with his health and wellness advice.
This particular episode of the Dr Oz Show went to air midweek and was promoted as “Dr. Oz scours the earth to find the best natural cures. What can Mother Nature’s medicines do for you? These healing plants, powders and pills can help with arthritis, allergies, acne and much more.”
Dr Oz and the Medicine Hunter put Vanuatu squarely on the map for millions of Americans and Canadians when Vanuatu Tamanu Oil was hailed as the best natural cure for the treatment of Acne.
For those of you who still haven’t heard of Tamanu Oil, it is produced from the nut kernels of the Tamanu Tree, which grows profusely throughout Vanuatu.
Regarded by many as a miracle oil, this all natural and truly organic product is used for the treatment of a multitude of skin conditions including:- acne, acne scarring, psoriasis, eczema, burns (including chemical burns), dry or scaly skin, infected wounds, ulcers, boils, sores, cuts, skin blemishes, rashes (including nappy rash), dermaphytosis of the scalp or beard, reduction of and even the complete removal of age spots to improving the appearance of generalized scarring and even stretch marks after pregnancy.
As indicated on the Volcanic Earth website (www.volcanicearth.com), where modern medicine fails traditional health remedies that has been around for centuries have much to offer. For the people at Volcanic Earth, Vanuatu Tamanu Oil is the ultimate in skin cell rejuvenation and it seems that the rest of the world is beginning to agree with them.
So what is it about this South Pacific treatment that makes it so much in demand for the people in the know? Although scientists don’t fully understand how Tamanu Oil works they accept that it is a significant healing agent because of its unique ability to promote the formation of healthy new skin cells - a process called “Cicatrization”.
In many ways, Vanuatu is home to the Tamanu tree. The fruit (nuts) are primarily hand gathered from the coastal areas of outer islands, as they are said to yield the highest quality oil. Many Ni Vanuatu believe that these trees, as distinct from those growing inland, draw added nutrients from the coral that contribute to the higher grade product. Following traditional practices, the nut kernels are hand-cracked and then cured for a period of up to two months. These nut kernels are then cold pressed, without heat or chemicals, resulting in a rich dark, luxurious oil.
Volcanic Earth has been working hard to promote Vanuatu and its pure 100% Tamanu Oil through its websites and network of resellers around the globe. In fact, Oxfam New Zealand recently described Volcanic Earth as “one of the most interesting companies in the South Pacific” because of its innovative and creative approach to business.
Volcanic Earth was one of the first Vanuatu recipients of a grant through the AusAid-funded Enterprise Challenge Fund (ECF). One of the primary purposes of this grant was to remove some existing barriers to export, particularly for their Tamanu Oil range of products. The main underlying reason behind this export project, both for Volcanic Earth and the ECF, has been the creation of employment and livelihood opportunities for 900 – 1500 disadvantaged Ni Vanuatu living in remote outer islands of Vanuatu, through the collection and curing of the nuts of the Tamanu Trees.
The primary countries targeted for export were Australia, New Zealand and the USA. On a recent trip to Australia, Volcanic Earth secured an exclusive distributorship for its Tamanu Oil-based products in that country. Given that they already have exclusive distributors in New Zealand, this latest exposure in the USA and Canada is the icing on the cake.
“We have been plugging away at America and to a lesser extent Canada for a while now” said Linda Trenkner, the CEO of Volcanic Earth. ”It has been hard but we were getting there - just not quite as quickly as we would have liked. This latest exposure of Vanuatu Tamanu Oil on USA television has really been a welcome boost in our efforts to be on target with our ECF Project objectives. As Oprah herself says, it’s about opportunity and preparation coming together and thanks to the ECF grant, we were ready – and I mean export ready. ”
Although indigenous Melanesian and Polynesian communities discovered this mind-blowing, natural skin care remedy many centuries ago, it is through exposure like The Dr Oz Show that Tamanu Oil has begun to attract serious attention from the beauty industry. One thing is clear - Tamanu Oil is now at the cutting edge of a new wave of emerging skin care products and so too is Volcanic Earth.
