Monoi oil trend

An ancient Polynesian beauty secret is now the world’s newest beauty trend. Monoi oil is a concoction of refined coconut oil infused with Tahitian gardenias, giving it all of the benefits of coconut oil as well as a delicate, summery fragrance. In fact, Monoi is an ancient Tahitian word meaning “scented oil.” This multitasking moisturizer is being used in makeup, skin and hair products including Earth’s Nectar, Eminence and Nars.
