TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Women in the past had never experienced skin problems as much as we experience today. In the olden days, women worked with natural ingredients. As a result, they have left a natural healing legacy that has been lost over time and generations.
But there are still some of us who still believe in natural ingredients to solve skin problems. Although with the advancement of science and technology, sometimes natural herbs can be the solution to our skin problems.
Olive oil and coconut oil have long been used for the skin because of its very diverse properties. But there are other natural ingredients that have more properties, namely Tamanu oil, which many people have rediscovered its benefits.
