The secret is out… Hanalei Company is sharing with you 5 loved Hawaiian skincare secrets and ingredients. Skincare can be so overwhelming, right? There’s just…so many products out there nowadays and a plethora of new, trendy ingredients that you have to try. It’s all too much! How do you know what ingredients you should trust? Does quantity trump quality?
Never fear. Here at Hanalei, we love simple formulations and even simpler ingredients that don’t require hours of Googling to figure out what their benefits are. We’re going to cover the 5 best (and most loved!) Hawaiian skincare secrets and ingredients.
1. Kukui Nut Oil
If you’ve ever been to Hawaii, you’ve probably heard all about kukui nut oil. It relieves dryness and hydrates your skin, which comes from the essential fatty acids that are derived from Hawaiian kukui trees. It’s the perfect ingredient for maintaining that supple and youthful skin of yours! And, the best part? You can use kukui oil basically anywhere! Dry lips? Slap on some of our Kukui Oil Lip Treatment and hydrate away. Dry hands, elbows, or basically anything? Generously apply our Kukui Body Lotion to give your skin the care it deserves.
2. Sugar Cane
You know, sugar isn’t just for eating. It’s also for exfoliating! Turbinado sugar crystals are the perfect natural exfoliant that helps remove dry, dead skin. Do you get dry, chapped lips that drive you crazy? Use some of our Sugar Lip Scrub to get those supple lips that have been hiding! Exfoliating doesn’t have to be scary or harsh on your skin.
3. Aloe Vera Gel For The Face
If you’ve been living under a rock, you may not know that aloe is rich in so many different things. Antioxidants, enzymes, vitamin A and C—basically anything and everything! Aloe is extremely anti-inflammatory (which is one of the many reasons it’s used to treat sunburns), can be easily absorbed into the skin, and increases skin elasticity. Essentially, aloe is the fountain of youth and perfect for healing and protecting your skin. Aloe Vera for the face can be found in our Island Aloe Gel.
4. Hawaiian Noni
Noni is a native Hawaiian fruit that contains even more essential acids that improve the function of cell membranes. In layman’s terms…it consistently works to improve your skin’s health. You can find this particular ingredient in our Island Aloe Gel and our Papaya Face Cleanser. In conjunction with the aloe, papaya extract, and noni ingredients, we’ve basically created a super skincare product!
5. Papaya Enzyme
If you’re looking to brighten, exfoliate, and moisturize your skin, you’ve come to the right place! This ingredient can do it all and more. If your skin is looking or feeling dull, it’ll help clarify and illuminate your complexion without breaking a sweat. We use Papaya in both our Papaya Enzyme Powder Face Cleanser and our Island Aloe Gel.
What have we learned here, folks? That more ingredients isn’t always better? And that strong, powerful ingredients can and will always speak for themselves? Skincare doesn’t have to be difficult just like it doesn’t have to break the bank. Hanalei strives to bring you the best ingredients and products that our beloved island has to offer.
