Filtered Foraha oil, also called Tamanu oil, certified organic cold pressed nut kernels of the Calophyllum inophyllum tree has a slightly thinner consistency than unfiltered and contains a small amount of natural vegetable particles. Some find filtered Foraha is easier to work with. Some believe filtering removes a small amount of natural elements. We stock both types. Unfiltered Foraha
is thicker and contains more natural vegetable particles.

How Foraha oil is made: The Caliphyllum tree bears fruit twice per year. It is collected and spread on racks to dry cure for 6-8 weeks, until the outer hull has changed from green to dark brown. There is no oil present in fresh fruit (nuts) and is only present after drying. The outer shell is then cracked open to remove the oil rich kernel and cold pressed.
Contraindications: Nut Allergy - This filtered Foraha oil is not recommend for those with a tree nut allergy as this oil may still contain nut allergens after filtration.
