When we formulated Tahitian Oil, we wanted to create a highly potent blend of tropical oils that worked together to create an exponentially beneficial body care treatment.
In addition to monoi, kukui and passion fruit oils, Tahitian Oil features macadamia oil in our formulation for its exceptional skin benefits.
In addition to it being the closest match to naturally occurring sebum in the skin, macadamia oil is great for:
- softening skin;
- regenerating skin cells;
- moisturizing skin; and
- is a natural anti-inflammatory.
