Discover the Benefits of Monoï Oil

The Tahitian Secret To Healthy Hair and Skin

Polynesian culture has long used monoï oil in daily beauty routines for good reason. Made from combining coconut oil and Tiare flower, monoï oil is rich in fatty acids that can add lustre and strength to both hair and skin. While we’ve seen argan oil, marula oil, and sweet almond oil celebrated as must-haves amongst skincare devotees, many have missed out on the restorative benefits of monoï oil—at least until now.

What is monoï oil and where does it come from?

Unique to Tahiti, monoï oil is a staple in the medicinal, religious, and beauty rituals of indigenous Polynesians. For centuries, Polynesian peoples have steeped Tiare flowers (Tahiti’s national flower) in coconut oil to create this fragrant elixir.

 

The process of making monoï oil is carefully supervised by the “Institut du Monoi”: coconuts must be grown on coral soil and harvested at maturity.

Tiare flowers must be handpicked as buds and used within 24 hours to produce the luscious amber-coloured liquid.

Monoï oil for skin: The secret to your glow up

The careful process of creating monoï oil is only one of the factors that contribute to its many beneficial properties—such as giving skin a healthy glow. The coconut oil base is chock full of fatty acids, commonly known to have antimicrobial properties, making it ideal for those who suffer from issues associated with sensitive skin.

 

Monoï oil is also noncomedegenic—meaning it doesn’t clog pores. Apply a rich layer to your body and your skin will get the hydration it craves, while still being able to breathe.

Monoï oil benefits for hair: How to boost your shine

When taking care of our hair, we often overlook scalp health, which is an integral factor in maintaining a healthy, shiny mane. Our scalps can often suffer from the same issues the rest of our skin battles—namely flaking, redness, and itchiness. All which can often be sourced back to dryness and inflammation.

 

The soothing nutrientsmonoï oil gives your skin are the same it provides your scalp and hair. Both noncomoedegenic and richly hydrating, monoï oil locks in moisture, helping the scalp rebalance itself.

 

If you’re struggling with split ends, frizz, dull, or brittle hair, monoï oil can be especially useful. The coconut oil blended into monoï oil is commonly known to effectively penetrate the hair shaft, reducing protein loss and delivering major nourishment to damaged hair. Even those with undamaged hair can benefit from the hydrating properties of monoï oil.
