Its sweet, dried-fruit scent makes it a cosmetic ingredient of choice.
Traditionally used by Oriental women to slow down and prevent hair regrowth, Tigernut vegetable oil is also used after depilation (shaving, waxing & sugaring) of legs, eyebrows, upper lip, etc. Rich in omegas 6 and 9, it provides suppleness and protects the skin from dehydration. Its anti-inflammatory properties and exceptional emollient and nourishing properties make Tigernut oil an excellent choice for sensitive or dry skin. It is also recommended for sensitive skin with a tendency to flaking (eczema, psoriasis, etc.) as it contains active healing ingredients.
Tigernut oil is also known for its exceptional ability to penetrate the scalp and hair, keeping them moisturized, nourished and protected, making it ideal for inclusion in hair and scalp care formulas designed to repair and replenish moisture. Tigernut oil is a perfect emollient for all skin types, and is also suitable for oily skin thanks to its non-clogging moisturizing action.
Instructions for use:
Apply to skin and massage until fully absorbed.
Practical advice: It is recommended to apply Tigernut oil not only after waxing, but also every evening on the waxed area, until the next waxing. The effects are visible after at least 1 month, and only if the hair has been removed at its root (i.e., with wax/sugaring or tweezers, not with a razor or clippers).
Tigernut’s reputation is based on feedback from users noting its effect on hair growth after daily application.
