Ingredient Description

Monoi de Tahiti is an exotic, delicately aromatic oil produced to exacting specifications in Polynesia. This precious oil is still produced in the same manner as it was over a thousand years ago. Oil that bears the name Monoi de Tahiti must be manufactured according to a French governmental decree that explicitly describes the age-old tradition, specific ingredients and the careful process by which this nutritive oil must be made. Monoi de Tahiti is created by macerating 10 intensely fragrant tiare flowers per litre of naturally refined coconut oil. The coconuts and tiare flowers used in Monoi de Tahiti must be grown within French Polynesia, and the maceration process must last at least 10 days. Tiare flowers are also known as Tahitian gardenias or Tiare Tahiti. Praan Naturals Monoi de Tahiti is 100% pure and authentic. It carries the Appellation of Origin (AO) certificate that guarantees that the oil is produced under strictly controlled manufacturing methods, and it ensures the highest quality Monoi de Tahiti. The fresh tiare blooms infused into Monoi de Tahiti lend an exquisite, delicate floral aroma to this nutritive oil. The blooms are rich in terpenic alcohol and esters that include methyl salicylate. Monoi de Tahiti has also been traditionally used to soothe insect bites and care for a range of skin concerns. Its delicate floral aroma make it a soothing addition to sun care products. It is also a luxurious, relaxing massage oil.
