Monoi de Tahiti is an oil certified from Tahiti. It is made by adding
native Tahitian Tiare flowers to Virgin coconut oil. This is a process
called Maceration. This process is to get the properties of the Tiare
blossoms into the oil. This adds the sweet fragrance of the flowers and
even more importantly the nutrients from the Tiare Flower into the oil.
In the right moisturizer, these nutrients can be absorbed into the skin.
Of course true Monoi de Tahiti is an expensive precious oil. And we’ve
created a truly unique moisturizer. Not some oil and thickener. For that
reason, few moisturizers on the market do it justice. They add in other
less than precious oils. We decided to do it right. You also won’t find
silicones or thickeners like algin or sea weed or gums in our
moisturizers are ‘Olde World’ artisan made moisturizers. It took us
years to get this good at making them.
Details details, details: In order to make a unique experience for our
customers, every new moisturizer is a challenge. First we searched for
other Monoi Moisturizers to look at. There’s really not much out there.
The ones that are there use a small amount of Monoi. This is a TRUE
Monoi de Tahiti product. We buy the finest Certified Monoi from Monoi
USA. They’ve been in business since 1942.
We have to meet certain guidelines to use the Monoi de Tahiti name.
Mainly at least 1% of a moisturizer must be Monoi. I actually find that
funny. Monoi is the only oil. I won’t say the exact percentage, due to
copyright concerns. But it is many, many times the 1%.
DMAE is a interesting anti-aging ingredient. See more below about the
wonderful benefits. But the problem with DMAE is it is very acidic. So
we had to buffer this acid to get this product to a nice pH neutral.
We tested dozens of formulations until we found the right combination.
Here’s what’s curious, Monoi is made mostly of Virgin coconut. Yet, if
you feel virgin coconut and monoi, they have a totally different feel.
That is due to the nutritional ingredients the Tare flowers impart into
the virgin coconut oil. It’s almost magical. And now to have a truly
unique moisturizer using only Monoi, it’s special!
Reverse Osmosis Purified water. virtually all skin care products ‘say’
they use purified water. But the real deal is reverse osmosis purified
water. This mean ZERO contaminants which means the starting point is
pure. It’s expensive to do (goes through 5 filters, which have to be
changed often), but it is the only water we use. We use the waste water
from this purifying process to water our flowers and landscaping. So
there is no waste. Don’t some products use distilled water? Yes but
distilled water is environmentally expensive to make (heat is used to
boil the dirty water and steam is collected). The problem we have with
distilled water is it has a lower pH due to the extra ions added during
the process. it’s very harsh. We prefer to work with pH neutral water.
To me there is no more perfect water than R-O water. I remember the 1st
time we made soap with it. As we poured the soap it was so creamy! It
looked like home made ice cream right before it gets solid. It’s one of
our special secrets to how good our products are. Again, no one does
Monoi de Tahiti More about the oil we use: Born in the sun of the
Pacific Islands, Monoi de Tahiti is a treasure full of natural goodness.
From baby care to Polynesian rituals, this exotic, delicately aromatic
oil is produced to the exact specifications in Polynesia. From
generation to generation this sacred oil is still produced in the same
manner as it was over a thousand years ago. The name “Monoï de Tahiti®”
designates that the product is made in French Polynesia and is created
by macerating 10 Tiare blossoms (hand picked as buds that must be used
within 24 hours of harvesting) in refined coconut oil. This oil is to be
extracted from mature coconuts gathered from Cocos Nucifera trees
growing exclusively in the coral soil in the geographic area of French
Polynesia. Only “Tiare” flower buds from the Gardenia Tahitensis species
and of Polynesian origin are acceptable. The first cosmetic ingredient
ever to have its authenticity and qualities confirmed by an Appellation
of Origin (AO) certificate, Monoï de Tahiti offers a new level of
guarantee for natural, ethical and active cosmetics. Our manufacturer,
Parfumerie Tiki in Papeete, Tahiti is a family business founded in 1942
and is proud of over 70 years of manufacturing the first Tahiti produced
monoi sold on the global market. The company is a Certified ISO 9001
Version 2008 and an integral part of the economic tissue of Tahiti.
Parfumerie Tiki is a board member of the governmental agency for quality
control of copra, co-founder and past president of the prestigious Monoï
Institute and export commission for the Chamber of Commerce. A leader in
the industry in French Polynesia, Parfumerie Tiki has over 30 years of
exporting experience worldwide.
The heart of Monoï de Tahiti – “Tiare Tahiti” (gardenia tahitensis) an
iconic beauty flower and medicinal plant with its enchanting
unforgettable fragrance. The blooms rich in terpenic alcohols and esters
(methyl salicylate) are known for their soothing and purifying
properties. Together from this combination of fresh tiare flowers and
refined copra oil comes Monoï – “Sacred oil” – The ancestral beauty
regime of the Polynesian “Vahines”. From babies to anti-aging this rich
emollient oil penetrates the skin quickly and acts as a natural barrier
against dehydration, a major cause of wrinkles. A luxuriant product of
nature, this natural cocktail of active elements is an endless
inspiration for personal care.
BTMS: Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol
BTMS, also known as Conditioning Emulsifier is a self-emulsifying wax, a
quaternary ammonium salt derived
from the natural plant oil Colza, and contains no
ethoxylated ingredients. It is both a mild primary emulsifier and an
excellent conditioning agent, which provides elegant cationic emulsions
for both skin and hair care products. These creams tend to resist wash
off, leaving a soft, powdery feel on the skin.
DMAE (2-dimethylaminoethanol) We’ve been thinking about trying
DMAE in one of our lotions. We tested this lotion both with and without
DMAE and all of our testers agreed with DMAE
showed substantial improvements in the quality of their skin. And fine
line removal. So why one more anti-aging product? You can’t have too
many tools in your toolbox. Besides many people are just going to love
this moisturizer as a moisturizer. And the scent too!
“DMAE is an analog of the B vitamin choline ….”
“DMAE ….applied daily for 16 weeks has been shown to be safe and
efficacious (p < 0.05) in the mitigation of forehead lines and
periorbital fine wrinkles, and in improving lip shape and fullness and
the overall appearance of aging skin.”
“These effects did not regress during a 2-week cessation of
“The acute skin-firming effects of DMAE have been confirmed by
quantitative measures of cutaneous tensile strength.”
“Thus, the benefits of DMAE in dermatology include a potential
anti-inflammatory effect and a documented increase in skin firmness with
possible improvement in underlying facial muscle tone.”

Sodium Hydroxide. As a buffering agent. We use a tiny amount in this
ingredient to counteract the acidic nature of DMAE.
Germall Plus (4/10’s of 1%) (diazolidinyl Urea,
3-Iodo-2-propylbutylcarbarmate) (a vegetable derived preservative to
keep our product fresh) only needs 4/10’s of one percent to keep our
product safe. Look before you ask, no totally natural preservative
really protects products from bacteria. We don’t like using Parabens.
and since we pH balance our moisturizers we are limited in our choice of
preservatives. What’s great about this one is so little is needed to

No animal ingredients or testing EVER! We also get assurances from our
suppliers that all of our raw ingredients are not animal derived or any
animal testing done there either.
So why are we so different? We decided a long time ago, not to go big.
Not to sell out. Our business model was the very best ingredients, fresh
made and shipped direct to our customers. No retail stores to get in the
way and tell us what to do. We are not perfect. We make mistakes. We are
working with precious ingredients that make producing products with them
difficult. If our products aren’t good enough, then we keep improving
them until they are the best. We listen to our customers and respond to
their requests and suggestions. Our only boss is our customers. Our
guarantee comes with no time limit.
Best if used within one year of receipt.
Most skin care products you buy to use today, were made in large
factories years ago and have been in storage. Everything we ship was
made in small batches within a few weeks of shipping. Fresh matters!
Quality ingredients matter!
Most of our ingredients are as close to natural as possible. We avoid
overly processed ingredients. Processing means heat and that destroys
the goodness in these precious ingredients we use.
We also include a free FULL SIZE bar of our Natural shea
butter non-drying soap with each jar. An $8.00 value if
purchases singly. This
Natural soap has to be tried to be believed. It is nothing
