Monoi oil is like coconut oil’s sexier cousin. It is used for the hair, the skin and face – and the fragrance is divine.
Many people, according to OrganicFacts, in French Polynesia use monoi oil as a full-body moisturizer, often covering themselves in this oil before going sailing or diving. This will help their bodies retain moisture, even when exposed to salt water, wind and the harsh sun – an important health effect for those who want to keep their skin moist and nourished all day long!
People regularly use monoi oil if they are suffering from dandruff, dry skin, acne, psoriasis, eczema, split ends, frizzy hair, sunburn, skin discoloration, wrinkles, blemishes, age spots, hair loss, a weak immune system, oxidative stress and other inflammatory conditions.
There are many different health conditions that can cause inflammation on the skin or scalp, but the methyl salicylate found in monoi oil can help eliminate many of those underlying factors. Thanks to its soothing and moisturizing nature, this oil can ease the pain of those conditions, while also protecting against further inflammation, including conditions like psoriasis, eczema and acne.
It’s for all these reasons that we’re currently obsessed with Thalgo Mahana Massage Oil — Huile de Massage Mahana.
Thalgo Mahana Massage Oil is for those looking for an ultra-relaxing massage that takes the client on a journey through the Polynesian islands. This sumptuous oil is a golden-colored blend of light oils with scents of floral and Tiare (Monoi), the queen of flowers symbolic of the Polynesian islands.
Contains Algo Monoï Sargassum (Sargassum mangarevense alga, Monoi oil) which hydrates, protects and acts as anti-stress. Vegetal oils (Sunflower, Sesame, and Apricot kernel) provide an ideal texture for the Mahana Massage which nourishes the skin and leaves a silky finish to the skin at the end of the massage.
