MONOI BODY OIL
USES: Scalp + Hair + Skin
ABOUT: Monoi is pretty much a head-to-toe healer. It's known to stimulate hair growth, heal skin, condition hair + scalp, and protect against UV treatment damage, all with a light floral, coconut scent. It has a non-viscous to soft solid appearance depending on the temperature.
ORIGIN: Unique to Tahiti, monoï oil is a staple in the medicinal, religious, and beauty rituals of indigenous Polynesians. For centuries, Polynesian peoples have steeped Tiare flowers (Tahiti’s national flower) in coconut oil to create this fragrant elixir.
The process of making monoï oil is carefully supervised by the “Institut du Monoi”: coconuts must be grown on coral soil and harvested at maturity.
Tiare flowers must be handpicked as buds and used within 24 hours to produce the luscious amber-colored liquid.
The careful process of creating monoï oil is only one of the factors that contribute to its many beneficial properties—such as giving skin a healthy glow. The coconut oil base is chock full of fatty acids, commonly known to have antimicrobial properties, making it ideal for those who suffer from issues associated with sensitive skin.
Monoï oil is also non-comedogenic—meaning it doesn’t clog pores. Apply a rich layer to your body and your skin will get the hydration it craves, while still being able to breathe.
