    A Trip to Hawaii to remember. Oils? You look at Oils on Vacation? OK I”m fixing to tell you about something very special!

    Yes I can”t get away from work. When you go to Hawaii, the things you remember are often the small things. Not necessarily the beaches or the volcanoes or the native dancers. I remember the essences of the islands. Of course, what I remember was that little tiny bottle of Kukui Nut Oil in my Hotel room with all the other goodies in my welcome basket. There are many stories of visitors who found the treatment for their troublesome skin problems was this miracle oil. But raw oil isn”t the best way to enjoy the real benefits of oil. It MUST be in a lotion base to get the best of it”s properties. So we scoured the Island looking at Kukui Nut Lotions and guess what, they were all the same garbage sold on the mainland. An inexpensive carrier oil (like mineral oil or Sweet Almond Oil) and a small amount of precious Kukui Nut oil, so they could call it Kukui Lotion. And the other ingredients often were animal derived.

    Oh I forgot to mention, Kukui Nut oil is one of the most expensive and precious oils in the world. At about $140.00 a gallon. I never really figured we would ever use it as a primary oil for a lotion.

    What”s the difference between Body Lotions and Moisturizers?

    A couple years ago one of our people who answer emails (we do personally answer your questions) came to me wanting to know when we were coming out with a body lotion. He said we were getting dozens and dozens of requests for one. At the time I was studying body lotions and was trying to decide what to do.

    The skin on your body, if you are typical is much thicker than the skin on your face. And unless you are a lifeguard, body skin isn”t exposed to the elements as much as the face. So the lotion you spread on your body, should be different than the one for your face. It should be lighter and even more absorbing. But at the same time able to soften dry patches and even out your skin tone. Body lotions need be effective but not heavy. I looked again at Kukui and decided to see if I could indeed make that lotion I had looked for in Hawaii and couln”t find.

    What we couldn”t find in Hawaii we make here in Florida. Go figure?!?!

    So what makes this so much better than what you can buy at Walmart?

    • Like our moisturizer, Animal Ingredient Free. Almost all moisturizers and lotions are made with animal derived ingredients. They save money and most people don”t know, because there is no law requiring you to know what ingredients are made from. We only used vegetable derived ingredients. Even if you are not a vegetarian, you will love how wonderful our products make your skin feel.
    • Kukui Nut Oil is in our opinion the best single all around oil on the market. It is light and not greasy. Kukui absorbs into the skin and heals dry areas.

    • Unfortunately it is EXPENSIVE. It sells for about $140 a gallon, if you get the good stuff.

    • Whenever available we will spend the extra money for food grade ingredients versus just cosmetic grade. This is an important point.

    • Kukui Nut Oil is in our opinion the best single oil on the market. It is light and not greasy. Yet Kukui absorbs into the skin and heals dry areas.

    • Unfortunately it is EXPENSIVE. It sells for about $140 a gallon, if you get the good stuff.

    • Keep in mind Mineral oil by the drum costs about $6.00 a gallon. No wonder everyone uses it. (except us)

    • GOOD STUFF? yes all Kukui Nut oil is not created equal. We only use Hawaiian, expeller processed. Never any chemicals used in the production. We”ve tested some Kukui oils from other countries. They STINK. Smell like chemicals. No wonder they are so much cheaper.

    • Ok but so what? This isn”t the only body lotion using Kukui, is it? No, but we don”t use any other oils. All others we”ve found primarily use other inexpensive oils and use a small amount of Kukui so they can put that on the label. Sneaky huh? Got to read the labels these days.

    • OK so how can we use such expensive ingredients and still sell a product so reasonably? NO MIDDLE MEN. The only way you can buy this is through us. No stores or distributors to add their profit on to the price. Remember every time it goes through someone”s hands it doubles the price. If a cheap product costs $2.00 to make, then they sell it to the distributor for $4.00 and then they sell it to the stores for $8.00 and then the stores will sell it for maybe $12 to $16.00. And it”s still cheap ingredients. Many times there are more hands than these that these products pass through.

    • Made Fresh. Our moisturizers and body lotions are made fresh in small batches of about 200 bottles or jars at a time. Why? We”ve found it is better to provide a fresh product. Besides, pick up any moisturizer in the store and chances are it was made years ago. This just can”t be good. But it”s the way retail works. It”s why we have turned down many stores who want to stock our products. Another reason we make small batches is about 1 out of 10 batches have to be destroyed. They just don”t meet our standards.

    Hawaiian Kukui Nut Oil: only the highest quality

    Reverse Osmosis Purified Water: When looking at other skin care products I always want to know how the water they use is purified(if at all). Is it filtered? How small a filter? Ozonated? Often the devil is in the details. We use only Reverse Osmosis purified water. Reverse Osmosis purified water is the gold standard for being clean and pure. So if we are talking microscopic differences why is it important? Reverse Osmosis water, we’ve found, works better than any other water to maximize the potential of the precious ingredients we use. It’s expensive, but we believe anything else is purely just cutting corners.

    Vegetable sourced Glycerin. we never use animal based glycerin which is used in just about all other lotions and moisturizers.

    Vegetable sourced Emulsifying Wax. this helps bind water and oil.

    Elder Flower Extract. (Sambucus Nigra) This extract has wonderful healing qualities. This is the only extract we use in this product because as far as we”ve found this is the only one that really does anything. So many products put fancy sounding extracts in their product. these are what in the business are called ”Label Candy”. They sound good, sell a lot of product, but the extracts are so watered down they do nothing. We actually couldn”t find Elder Flower in the proper strength, so we extract our own. It is very concentrated.

    Vegetable sourced Stearic Acid. Helps bind water and oil and improves texture. Most moisturizers and lotions use an animal based stearic acid to save money.

    Citric acid : PH balancer

    TEA : PH balancer. we use a tiny amount, so that the PH is about 6.5

    Lavender Essence . A natural essence rather than artificial fragrances used in most lotions.

    Germall Plus® consists of: diazolidinyl urea, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate (IPDC). Why use these preservatives, instead of paraben based preservatives every other product uses? They work better at a lower percentage. Plus some people have paraben sensitivity.
