descriptionMonoi Butter is a soft, velvety butter containing the essence of the tropical Tiare flower, famous for its aromatherapy action. The Tiare flower is well known in Polynesia for its exotic tropical essence and use in skin and hair care. The manufacturer has combined that essence into an exclusive exotic butter blend which goes on smooth and retains the Tiare essence on the skin. The melting point of this butter is nominally 42 C, making it ideal as a butter-like balm. If combined into an emulsion for creams and lotions, Monoi Butter will add moisturizing benefits as well as essential aroma aspects to the finished product.
Monoi Butter exhibits excellent spreadability on the skin, making it ideal as a massage butter or carrier for treatment products. It adds moisturizing attributes to creams and lotions and bar soaps. May be used in cosmetics, toiletries, soaps & balms, hair care and sun care preparations.
Suggested uses: Use from 3% to 100% pure (as a butter-like balm). SAP value: 175-200. General information: Soft, off white, solid to partially solid fat depending on ambient temperature.

I can not say enough about this monoi butter. Besides the smell being absolutely divine, I love the texture of it. It is rich and creamy. A little goes a long way. My husband has very dry skin and when I applied it to his skin, I could see the difference in his skin right away. I am definitely going to use this product as one of my staples.

I ordered this on a whim, just wanting to try a new body butter but WOW what a wonderful surprise when I opened the container and this incredible scent unfolded. The properties of the butter for hair and skin are great but by far the most alluring attribute of this product is its scent!

I purchased this butter just from reading the description of it! I used this in my first face creme and everyone loves it! My husband is my biggest fan. What a lovely scent!

Natural girl's keeper!
I read the reviews prior to purchasing this product. I'm not really into feminine scents. I took Lisha's comments concerning how great it does on her hair. I too, wanted to capture the powerful ingredient in CD's Monoi line. I was not disappointed. I haven't used the butter on my entire head, only around my hair line. I goes on smooth and is very moisturizing! I plan to mix it with my new favorite butter, horsetail, and see how my hair reacts.

A very smooth butter with a delightful smell
I love this butter on my skin for it apply so easily, it is also light on my natural hair which I like. The smell is subtle but very pleasing to the nose.
