Shiffa’s Tamanu Moisturiser is a hydrating cream for normal to dry or sensitive skin. The cream’s key ingredient is the exotic Tamanu oil, but it also contains rosehip oil, jojoba, jasmine, avocado oil and calendula among other plant and flower based ingredients. It promises to heal and regenerate skin while offering an element of anti-ageing and protection from environmental damage.

Found in the south-east Asian islands, Tamanu oil is said to have been used for hundreds of years to treat burns, acne, dry skin, eczema, blisters, stretch marks and more. Considered to have highly potent healing properties, it is also believed to improve skin’s elasticity, firmness and hydration.

Thoroughly luxurious to use, it stands out from your typical face cream with ease. The Tamanu Moisturiser is U.S $115 (€80 approx) for 50ml and is available from
