What Is Monoï Oil Really Made Of?

From Tahiti to Your Home: What Is Monoï Oil Made From?

 
Do you love the bewitching smell of sunshine and holidays? Good news! We're here to tell you about how Monoï Oil is made and its key ingredients like, the famous Tiare Tahiti flower!
 

Magic Behind the Ingredients of Monoï Oil

Monoï Oil , also known as Monoï de Tahiti oil, is a fragrant and luxurious oil made from a blend of refined coconut oil and the petals of the Tiare Tahiti flower (Tahitian gardenia).
 
According to the specifications of the appellation of origin, Monoï de Tahiti oil is the product obtained by macerating Tiare Tahiti flowers, harvested at the bud stage, in refined coconut oil, extracted from coconuts harvested at maturity in the geographical area of French Polynesia on coral soils. In addition, at least ten Tiare flowers must be macerated per liter of oil.

Tiare Tahiti Flower: Tradition, Simplicity, and Authenticity

 
On the volcanic and limestone lands of Polynesia, the Tiare Tahiti flower, also known as the Tahitian Gardenia blooms all year round, with a peak in flowering during the austral summer, from October to January.
 
This tropical shrub, which can grow up to 4 metres tall has small, white flowers that smell wonderful. Its beauty has captured the hearts of the French Polynesians, who have made it a symbol of Polynesian culture and an emblem of the Tahitian islands.

Tahitian Monoï Oil : An Ancesteral Skin Care Solution

 
For centuries, French Polynesians have used Tahitian Monoï Oil as a skincare, hair care, beauty, and fragrance solution for the entire family. The ancestral method of making Monoï Oil consisted of putting the Tiare flower petals in direct contact with the freshly grated pulp of the ripe coconut.

Sustainably sourced Monoï Oil thatrespects nature and people

 
The Tiare Tahiti flower used in the manufacture of Monoï de Tahiti oil is found only in Polynesia. Monoï de Tahiti is protected by an Appellation of Origin (AO) which guarantees its authenticity, its quality, and its local production.
 
The Tiare flower comes from sustainable agriculture. Yves Rocher's local partners get supply from a dozen family producers who follow good agricultural practices such as zero pesticide, by using natural fertilizers (made from fermented fish), placing plant cover rich in legumes, reusing macerated flowers for compost, and more.
 
Because we respect nature and humankind, we are concerned with ensuring our needs without neglecting our requirements. We obtain our supplies from a local partner laboratory. Yves Rocher Monoï Oil is the result of ancestral know-how unique to this region and is the fruit of a sustainable production process!

UEBT Certified

For 30 years (1994), Yves Rocher has been sourcing Monoï of Tahiti with a designation of origin guaranteeing its authenticity, quality and local production according to traditional know-how. In 2022, the Monoï of Tahiti designation celebrated its 30th anniversary.  Monoï is made of the maceration of Tiare Tahiti (flowers) in copra oil (dried coconut pulp).

The flowers are harvested by hand, when they are still in the flower bud stage and are used fresh (maximum 24 hours after their harvest) for the production of Monoï .  Since 2023, the sourcing of the Tiare Tahiti (the emblematic flower of Tahiti), is UEBT certified, meaning it complies with all the social, economic and environmental criteria set out in the UEBT guidelines for “ethical procurement,” which for UEBT means, “sourcing that enables men, women and biodiversity thrive.”
