FRESH Tiare flower buds are picked at dawn and then, soaked in coconut oil, which has been extracted under pressure. 12 flowers are used per litre of oil. The Tiare flowers will infuse their aromas into the oil with for several days, until an authentic Tahiti Monoi oil is created.

The "Tahiti Monoi Oil" Designation of Origin was awarded in 1992. It guarantees the product its quality, made in accordance with tradition and the local Polynesian economy.
