Coconut Supercritical Extract (Cocos nucifera) – This sumptuous CO2 extraction is a creamy, nutty, buttery celebration of pure, mouth-watering coconut. Captured from the fat, juicy pulp of Sri Lankan coconuts, our concentrated concoction is a secret favorite of perfumers. The special CO2 extraction process creates a creamy fragrance reminiscent of a frothy coconut libation. The aromatic profile is thick, toasty, and bold with dry-down hints of pralines and chestnut. Coconut CO2 is packed with beneficial fatty acids to protect, revitalize, and moisturize the skin, including lauric acid, myristic acid, palmitic acid, and carpylic acids.
Gardenia, Tiare (Gardenia tahitensis infused in Cocos nucifera) – What happens when fresh Tahitian gardenia dances with the essence of pure, virgin coconut? Why it’s a Polynesian love-dream, Monoi De Tahiti, that is super saturated with gardenia! This exclusive infusion is made by taking fresh Tiare and gardenia flowers and soaking them in the purest coconut oil strictly derived from the South Pacific. The South Pacific coconut oil is drawn from fruit that grows in the shade of towering volcanoes, thus infusing the oil with all the nutrients found in the surrounding volcanic soil.
Our gorgeous gardenia infusion is created with a minimum of 200 Tiare flowers for every litre of pure, volcanic, South Pacific coconut oil. This massive infusion of flora guarantees a balanced fragrance that is not overpowered by coconut and highlights the sweet tuberose-like fragrance of Tahitian gardenia.
Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) – Glorious golden jojoba is naturally rich in lipids and peptides that create soft, silky, and long-lasting conditioning of the skin. Jojoba balances sebum production in all skin types. It contains all forms of the natural antioxidant vitamin E and boasts the highest amount of nourishing tocopherols and phenolic compounds found in nature.
Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera) – This nourishing oil is non-comedogenic and is easily absorbed in the skin. It helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines, promotes elasticity, and is smoothing and moisturizing for thirsty tissues from head to toe. Coconut oil is said to protect the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals.
Hawaiian sandalwood (Santalum paniculatum) -Hawaiian sandalwood oil is sensual-smelling, moisturizing manna for the skin. It’s restorative for the planet and the spirit. This steam distilled sandalwood dream is only harvested from trees that are naturally nearing the end of their life cycle. Even better, 20 new trees are planted for each one harvested. The woodsy, nutty, dream-cream oil offered by ancient Hawaiian sandalwood trees is known as a sacred aphrodisiac. Unlike regular sandalwood, Santalum paniculatum has distinct volcanic notes that conjure images of island mountainscapes, lapping blue waves, and thousands of acres of thriving, glistening trees. Just like classic sandalwood, the skin-loving compounds in the oil deliver opulent moisture to thirsty skin.
Jasmine grandiflorum (Jasminum officinalis grandiflorum) – Jasmine grandiflorum is traditionally used to reduce the appearance of scars and acne-causing bacteria. Jasmine gradiflorum is a revitalizing aphrodisiac that lifts the spirits and ignites the heart towards love and happiness. Anxiety, tension, insomnia, and exhaustion are scattered to the earth’s four corners with a single inhalation of this precious Poet’s Jasmine.
Vanilla, Tahitian (Vanilla tahitenis) – This supercritical extract of Vanilla Tahitian essential oil is our yummiest vanilla oil ever and is great for creating silky smooth skin from head to toe! With the added benefits of the natural botanical components of heliotropin and diacetyl butandione, Tahitian vanilla is more potent and more delicious than the sun setting over a Polynesian island. Tahitian contains highest aroma profile of vanilla yumminess. Vanilla evokes beauty and delight and is excellent for body, head, hand, and cuticle massages.
Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) – The name ylang ylang translates to “flower of flowers.” Its cheerful floral fragrance kisses the cheeks, inviting one’s spirit to come out and play. This well-known aphrodisiac is used to regulate oil production in all skin types, harmonizing the skin you’re in with pitch-perfect moisture.
Turmeric (Curcuma Longa) – Turmeric supercritical extract is packed with oil loving compounds that are rich in antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. We extract the oil directly from the root instead of from the powder capsules typically used by most distillers. Turmeric oil is said to activate more than a dozen protective anti-inflammatory proteins in the skin cells. When the natural cell-protective mechanism is activated with phytonutrients, the response is said to be far superior to the protective action of antioxidants alone. This supercritical extract has traditionally been used to soothe damaged skin, detoxify the liver, and lift the spirits!
Lemon (Citrus limon) – Luscious lemon clarifies, energizes, and detoxifies the skin from head to toe. Lemon is used to eradicate acne and bumps while toning, firming, and infusing skin with youthful energy and resilience.
Mica (Phyllosilicate) – Mica is a naturally occurring silicate mineral that gives our Tropical Best Skin Ever™ it’s real-to-the-feel Summer Shimmer! Mica glitters and gleams, naturally reflecting light from your radiant skin. Mica is made with layers of crushed gemstones rich in iridescent color. Like a sheer, sparkling diamond, mica allows every inch of your skin to sing as it glistens in the light: starlight, moonlight, or tiki torches illuminating the campfire. *Mica is not certified organic.
