More on the TIARE oil (“MONOI” oil)

Thank you for your interest in the TIARE oil. Some of you have asked for more information, and I am happy to share more of Tahiti with you! Always!

Oils are good for most skins. Over the last few years, we have seen an explosion of essential oils for our face, our body, our hair, our cuticles, etc. - Argan oil, avocado oil, olive oil, almond oil, and many more. They all claim to be hydrating, beautifying, and anti-aging.

This is nothing new, though! Tahitian women have used the MONOI oil from the TIARE flower (and other local plants) for generations, and the essential oils of the islands have been part of their culture for centuries. When you see their beautiful complexion, you know that they are doing something right, and you also know that they are not spending a lot of money at the beauty counter - The Tahitians do not make much money, and beauty counters are very rare, even in Papeete, the “big” city in Tahiti. They do not exist in Moorea, Bora Bora, even less in Raiatea.

The TIARE flower grows in Tahiti only. It is picked at bud stage, soaked into Tahitian, refined, coconut oil during 12 days at a rate of 12 flowers per liter. It then settles for 24 hours, is filtered, purified, and enriched with a natural antioxidant. It is then checked before being bottled under inert atmosphere.

The TIARE flower, the “sacred flower of Tahiti”, the “Queen of Flowers” grows only in Tahiti and has been growing in Tahiti for centuries. It is used in head crowns, in costumes, on floats in parades, for weddings, birthdays, etc. and of course, it is used heavily in cosmetology because of its immensely beneficial properties such as moisturizing (progressive and lasting), firming, and repairing. It is also a tanning accelerator. It is a radiant beauty oil with 30% Monoi Oil, and it keeps your skin fresh and hydrated from hair to toes. Because this is a dry oil, it gives your skin a LIGHT radiant glow. It is important to use it after the shower WHILE YOUR SKIN IS STILL DAMP.

Monoi de Tahiti is the first cosmetic product to have obtained an Appellation of Origin. This AO stamp guarantees the quality of its manufacturing process, of the selection, and the authenticity of its Polynesian ingredients. There are a lot of copies of this precious commodity, so please be careful if you shop around.

I personally love this dry oil, and I use it on my face and neck at night, on damp skin. There are very few cosmetics that I can apply on my face without my eyes becoming watery very quickly. This dry oil does not do that. It is gentle, yet powerful at the same time. I do not believe that you need expensive night creams if you can make this your before-going-to-bed daily routine. Polynesian women have obviously known that for many, many years. Their skin is remarkably soft, naturally beautiful, supple, and healthy. Give it a try!
