Fragrance: Clean, fresh, woodsy, with a pure, slightly sweet, green fragrance—the unique, intoxicating smell of a Hawaiian rainforest is treasured equally by both women and men.
The Story: The rarest Hawaiian lei is not made with flowers, but is made with maile leaves from the vine Alyxia stellata. Maile is found deep in the rainforests of Hawaii. Although worn by commoners and royalty alike, Maile was also the chosen sacrificial offering to the goddess of hula, Laka. Hawaiians believed Maile would offer protection, bestow a natural perfume, bring good luck, treat cuts and promote good rest when put under a pillow.
Ingredient Spotlight: Shea Butter is a skin superfood that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree and that is naturally rich in Vitamins A, E and F. The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea Butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. A 2010 study found that due to its cinnamic acid and other natural properties, Shea Butter is an anti-inflammatory. Shea Butter offers UV protection and provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production.
