Do you have a locally made product? Please describe it.
Available within the spacious changing areas of the Heavenly Spas in Maui, the Hualani Shampoo, Hualani Conditioner, Hualani Body Wash and Hualani Crème Lotion can also be purchased at the spa for personal use and as a renewing gift from Hawaii. “We explored several ingredients including ginger and coconut but carefully chose pineapple and passion fruit as the subtle fragrance was most refreshing and presented elements of Hawaii. The Hualani (heavenly fruit) product line also includes a blend of tropical botanicals and oils such as coconut, kukui nut and macadamia nut which is extremely hydrating for the skin and hair. Sourcing fruits grown on the islands was of importance in addition to partnering a company with proven success in manufacturing spa products locally. We selected Hawaiian Body Products to design and create our exclusive Hualani line as the company continues to be successful with its Ola products.”
