To be successful with a natural hair or organic skin care line, the niche needs to be very focused and narrow. One niche is to focus on using plants for the skin and hair from traditional cultures. Previously, I shared about Hawaiian natural hair and skincare and the uses of plants for hair and skin. Tahitian natural hair and organic skin care is beautiful for a product line.

People from Tahiti are known for their beautiful glowing tan skin and healthy dark hair. Read below to learn about Tahitian natural hair and skin care secrets.
The upper layer of our skin, the epidermis is composed of mostly dead skin cells. These dead skin cells contain keratin protein. When we apply enzymes to our skin, the keratin protein will break down and leave our skin smoother. Fruit enzymes are excellent for radiant skin because they are naturally derived and can be more gentle on the skin.
Tropical fruits are excellent fruits that contain high concentrations of fruit enzymes. These fruits can help remove old skin cells to reveal more soft, clear, and radiant skin.

I was born on Kaua’i, Hawai’i and partly raised on this majestic island on a sugar plantation and then next to Mt. Waialeale. We wore moo moo’s, went barefoot and played and looked for treasures in the forest and swam at Poipu beach. The air was warm and filled with the scent of plumeria, wet moss and ocean sea water. I have the plants, the ancient culture and the ocean instilled deeply in me. Hawai’i is a very special healing place to me. The ancient Hawaiian culture and their knowledge of using plants for medicinal purposes and for the hair and skin is extremely valuable information and needs to be protected and preserved. Hawai’i is filled with healing plants and thanks to all the people that work so hard to preserve these plants and knowledge. Here are some of the plants that have been and are currently used for Hawaiian natural hair and skincare.
One thing I know from trying thousands of ingredients on my skin and in formulations is the power of plants and fresh organic skin care. I want to share my experience with plant-based ingredients that produce an immediate result with a natural vibrancy, softness and glow to the skin. You will be amazed at the softening of your skin and the instant glow.
Fresh organic skin care is the purest way to care for the skin and at a fraction of the cost of commercial skin care products. Fresh vegetables, fruits, plant-based milk products, herbs and plant oils are excellent for all skin care types, especially sensitive and reactive skin.
