Monoi Tiare Tahiti has been a leading manufacturer of all-natural coconut oil products in French Polynesia since 1942. In the native Tahitian language, Monoi (pronounced Mon-oy) translates to "scented oil." It is a completely natural product which has long been revered by Polynesians for its skin moisturizing virtues. Monoi is specific to French Polynesia and is traditionally made from "tiare" (pronounced Tea-a-ray) flowers (Gardenia tahitensis) soaked in the highest grade coconut oil.
