Biochemica® Monoi Butter is a soft, velvety butter containing the essence of tropical tiare flower, famous for its aromatherapeutic action. The tiare flower is well known in Polynesia for its exotic tropical essence and use in skin and hair care. That essence has been been combined into an exclusive exotic butter that goes on smooth and retains the tiare essence on skin. The melting point of this butter is nominally 42°C, making it ideal as a butter-like balm. When incorporated in emulsion-based creams or lotions, Biochemica® Monoi Butter will add moisturizing benefits as well as essential aroma aspects to the finished product.

Biochemica® Monoi Butter exhibits excellent spreadability, and so would work well as a massage butter or carrier for treatment products. Its moisturizing attributes would be well-suited to other cosmetics and toiletries like hair care, sun care and soaps.
