Authentic Monoi de Tahiti

Oxford, CT (8/6/2012) - Natural Sourcing is pleased to announce the availability of authentic Monoi de Tahiti [INCI: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil (and) Gardenia Tahitensis] within its growing line of specialty oils for use in innovative personal care products.

Monoi de Tahiti is an exotic, delicately aromatic oil produced to exacting specifications in Polynesia. This precious oil is still produced in the same manner as it was over a thousand years ago.

Oil that bears the name Monoi de Tahiti must be manufactured according to a French governmental decree that explicitly describes the age-old tradition, specific ingredients and the careful process by which this nutritive oil must be made.

Monoi de Tahiti is created by macerating 10 intensely fragrant tiare flowers per litre of naturally refined coconut oil. The coconuts and tiare flowers used in Monoi de Tahiti must be grown within French Polynesia, and the maceration process must last at least 10 days. Tiare flowers are also known as Tahitian gardenias or Tiare Tahiti.
