Kona Body Care products are all natural
For centuries, the Hawaiians have been using the ultra-light oil from the Kukui (koo-koo-ee) nut on their skin. Kukui nut oil is rapidly absorbed into the skin because of its natural PH balance. It is non-greasy and suitable for all skin types.
The untold story of Kukui Nut Oil
Hundreds of years ago, Hawaiians discovered that when the Kukui shells were removed and the kernels lightly roasted, a clear oil could be extracted. It was found to be an excellent penetrating oil, which when smoothed on the skin, soothed and softened sunburns and irritations. Kukui Nut Oil was found to be exceptionally safe, too - newborn babies were bathed in this easily absorbed oil to soothe and protect their skin.
