The oil from this tree, currently not extracted in Fiji is a natural wonder for skin health. We use Moringa oil in our products.

These hulls can be crushed to reveal their kernels then pressed and processed to extract Mango Butter, a natural emollient with excellent moisturising properties for the skin. Another adored ingredient we hope to see develop and prosper here in Fiji.Its always been clear to us- create a range of Body care products using as much as we can of the natural abundance of Fiji. Not everything we use is grown here in Fiji but it can be. We deliberately chose our ingredients from that potential. We hope to see these crops develop and prosper.
