The manufacturing has definitely changed somewhere along the way with this product. The oil is now thinner, as if it's been economically rationed or extracted. It also doesn't smell as distinctively nutty and doesn't feel as rich. Can't say for sure what's up, but wouldn't recommend this product to anyone who is looking for good-quality tamanu oil. It's a shame, because the packaging (with a pump) is very convenient while other brands tend to use a screw-cap.

The product itself is amazing! True to it's purpose. Although after 2 attempts of ordering the product, both times the product has reached me as empty bottle with its contents leaked onto all the other products. Disappointing. Iherb gives a refund. Which is absolutely nothing compared to money spent on customs and the need for the product itself.
