From the Marquesas to the Austral Islands, each one of the South Pacific archipelagos treasures its own specific health and bwaterty recipes. Monoi is enriched with specific vegetable blends and used in many aspects of the Polynesian life. The art of Monoi is an art passage, a science of the relations between man and nature.
Soothing and reparative, the concept of the balm directly derives from ancient preparations to deliver the full benefits of Monoi in a concentrated and deliciously sensual formula.

The Waterfalls Balm has been imagined to answer the needs of the skin stressed or damaged by the harshness of the sun as well as of cold weather.
The moisturizing and soothing virtues of Monoi de Tahiti have been formulated in a soft and unctuous formula, which gently melt onto the skin.
It is associated to extracts of Ylang ylang flowers and to Tamanu oil, a green vegetable oil from Polynesia reputed for its highly potent regenerative properties; Tamanu oil is used in pharmaceuticals as a healing and anti-inflammatory active ingredient.
