Mamalani makes some of the most aesthetically appealing body care products on the market. They’re handmade in Hawaii with aloha and packaged in earth-friendly containers. The founder, a Hawaii native, worked as a nutritionist for years, so she’s well-versed in plant medicine. Mamalani’s offerings are vegetarian and cruelty free, with lots of vegan choices. Ethically sourced beeswax is used in a few of the items (the deodorants and lip balms).
You’ll be thrilled by the gorgeous website, www.mamalani.com. It showcases the various offerings, and you can really get a sense of their quality. They’re surprisingly affordable, too! Start with the Body Powder Lokahi ($12.00). Described on the site as a “harmonious blend of all-time favorite lavender, calming clary sage and fruity, uplifting grapefruit”, this scent is hugely popular with customers. It’s great as both an antifungal powder and as a deodorant. You’ll love the pale pink, 100% compostable cardboard container. And, best of all, this product is vegan!
If you have dry hair, you need the Luna Hair Oil ($14.00). It’s a luscious blend of macadamia nut oil, organic coconut oil, and Hawaiian eucalyptus essential oil. Just place a couple of drops into your palm and rub them gently through your tresses. Instant hydration! Your hair will feel more nourished and moisturized, and you’ll love the tropical aroma. The little bottle goes a long way! And, like many of Mamalani’s products, this one is also vegan.
The Deodorant Stick Ke’ala ($14.00) contains beeswax, so it is not vegan. But it is a cruelty-free, vegetarian product, as well as the company’s most popular offering. Made with a base of locally sourced cocoa butter, this deodorant goes on smooth and offers long-lasting protection. It’s biodegradable and made without artificial ingredients. Customers give it glowing reviews. One of them wrote, “I will never go back to commercial deodorants ever again. The smell is amazing, and it works great with my body chemistry.” What an impressive testimonial!
If you purchase $50.00 worth of products, shipping is free! And, if you’re fortunate enough to live in Kailua, you can receive free delivery with the code, ILOVEKAILUA. The website offers a handy list of Hawaii brick and mortar outlets that carry their line. And don’t forget to check out the poetry on the “Love Letters to My Land” tab! We feel confident that you’ll fall in love with these products, just as we have. Be sure to check the labels if you’re vegan, however. Aloha!
