We create gentle, restorative skincare products, inspired by Hawaii’s lush, tropical landscape and native botanicals, infusing everything we do with the spirit of Aloha. Made with treasured island ingredients ranging from pressed kukui nut oil, aloe, papaya, lavender, and raw cane sugar, our unique formulations are perfect for everyday use and are perfect for any skin type.
Hanalei products are always 100% cruelty-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free and sulfate-free.
Our simple skincare reflects the essence of Hawaii—the glow of healthy, refreshed skin and inner harmony. It is our joy to share the experience of Hawaii with you wherever you live and to bring out your individual beauty.
After years working at top jewelry and fashion brands, Alice Kim left the corporate world and founded Elizabeth Mott. She left Manhattan for a radically different island experience: Hawaii where she moved with her boyfriend, now husband, Viraphanh, who grew up in Hawaii. Surrounded by translucent waters and nature’s vast treasures, Alice drew inspiration from Hawaii’s diverse ecosystems, native plants, rich culture and Aloha spirit. In 2015, she founded Hanalei with her husband, to bring the experience of Hawaiian beauty to people everywhere through simple, restorative skincare.
