Monoi oils will capture your imagination and transport you through fragrances to the beautiful islands of Tahiti.
MONOI TIARE TAHITI is a French-Tahitian cosmetic oil consisting of pure coconut oil and the fragrance of “tiare”, the Tahitian Gardenia. The product is a refinement of an ancient Polynesian beauty secret and has been manufactured commercially since 1942. Centuries ago the people of Polynesia discovered that pure coconut oil is an essential secret for beautiful skin and hair. Coconut oil is a natural replacement for your body’s skin and hair oils. The coconut oil used in Monoi Tiare Tahiti is so highly refined that it is quickly absorbed by your skin. This level of cosmetic refinement is what makes MONOI so unique and special. This Tahitian beauty secret is now available to you.
It is a trademark of the Monoi Tiki Tahiti to place a dried Tiare or Tahitian Gardenia flower in every bottle to show that this is the true monoi.
For soft supple skin, use MONOI TIARE TAHITI as a moisturizer and bath oil. It massages quickly into the skin, smoothing away dryness and leaving behind only a delightful fragrance of island flowers. MONOI oil is very close in nature to the oils that your own skin and scalp naturally produce. Be sure to apply the right amount of MONOI on to your skin. If you feel oily, you have used too much.
MONOI TIARE TAHITI may be used as a conditioner for dry hair. Pour a small amount into the palm of your hand and massage into your hair. Shampoo out after 10 or 15 minutes. The oil will enter the hair and replace the natural oils, giving your hair natural body and sheen.
Dark Tanning Oil
Pure coconut oil is the best product available for use as a dark tanning oil. Coconut oil actually increases the strength of the sun to speed the tanning process and enrich a dark body. But, if your skin is not already partially tanned and prepared to receive intense sun, then the use of MONOI can severely sun burn you. MONOI has no sunscreen or other chemical additives, so apply frequently and avoid excessive exposure during peak sun hours. Once a basic tan is developed, MONOI oil will produce incredible results with the sun. MONOI is absorbed quickly by your skin so it does not feel oily or greasy. As an after sun moisturizer, Monoi protects against dryness and peeling. MONOI TIARE TAHITI is the original dark tanning blend.
Please note that because of the natural properties of coconut oil, MONOI oil will solidify at temperatures below 68 F (20 C). This is a natural process that occurs because genuine MONOI contains no emulsifiers to keep it in a liquid state. It can look like it is spoiled as the solidifying first starts. Simply place the bottle in warm water or in a warm grasp to return it to a golden liquid form. Solidifying and warming will not affect the original properties of MONOI. Do NOT use a microwave oven to warm MONOI.
