Tropical Hawaiian botanical ingredients make you beautiful. In truth, your natural essence is what makes you beautiful, but certain Hawaiian botanical ingredients can help. Malie uses a selection of powerful, effective, natural Hawaiian botanicals to enrich and enhance the beauty that already exists within you. Our products are organic, non-toxic, and locally sourced to bring out the best of your natural beauty. While every product is made unique, there are several ingredients that we regularly use as a foundation.
The not-so-secret Hawaiian beauty secret to our products is Hawaiian hydrosols. These effective and powerful floral waters extract the most potent and beneficial components of plants and flowers. We use them in many of our products to enhance the fragrance while drawing out the most beneficial aspects of the formulations. Tropical flora such as plumeria, pikake, koke’e, mango nectar, and coconut vanilla are our leading scents.
Derived from the aloe plant, this thick substance helps moisturize and calm skin while promoting healing. People often use it as a natural remedy to help with sunburns, but it can be equally useful for inflammation and sensitive or irritated skin. It’s no wonder aloe vera is a go-to in Hawaii!
Rich in antioxidants and emollients, as well as Vitamin A and Vitamin E, mango butter may help soften and moisturize rough, dry skin. This ingredient is used to help treat and minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines all while providing a fruity, tropical scent.
Rather than ask what kukui seed oil can do, the better question would be to ask what it can’tdo? This powerful antioxidant is used for dry skin, acne, to protect against UV rays, to promote healing, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and to prevent premature aging. It helps the pores of the skin breathe while allowing them to retain moisture. Kukui seed oil contains Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and is high in omegas 3, 6, and 9. As if that’s not rough, it may also help boost collagen production and expedite skin cell regeneration.
The regenerative properties of macadamia nut oil are the result of its high monounsaturated fatty acid content. The palmitoleic acid and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids within this oil help promote soft, youthful-looking skin. Macadamia nut oil may also be useful for helping with scars and sunburns, making it the perfect skin care product ingredient for sun worshippers.
This root grows in tropical locations, making it one of the most natural ingredients to include in our botanical products. As an anti-inflammatory agent, awapuhi promotes circulation. It also works as an antioxidant to block the damage caused by free radicals. What’s more, awapuhi contains antiseptic properties to help prevent infections.
The exfoliating nature of Hawaiian Sea Salt helps remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin while gently cleansing bacteria from clogged pores. This may enhance circulation and help reduce blemishes as well as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
