Healing Noni’s skincare products work synergistically. For best results follow these Pure and Simple steps:
1) After cleansing with Colloidal Botanical Cleanse and, ideally, chemical free water, pat skin gently with a towel to dry.
2) Balance any skin type by boosting your skin’s moisture barrier function by misting face, neck, and other desired areas with Uplifting Botanical Moisture Mist to optimize skin’s PH and provide super hydrating nourishment. Allow Botanical Moisture Mist to slightly air dry.
3) Then lock super moisture in with a layer of luxurious plant oils and nutrients by pumping 3-6 squirts of Nourishing Botanical Face + Carrier Cream into palm of hand and apply to moist face, neck, and other areas you choose to supplement your skin’s natural function of sealing moisture in with healthy natural oils.
Nourishing Botanical Face and Carrier Cream has a pleasant, but not overwhelming, botanical scent. We consider it “unscented” because all ingredients in Healing Noni products, including therapeutic grade essential oils, are used for their historically proven benefits to skin. You can create your own scent, or use Face and Carrier Cream as a most effective carrier by dripping 2-3 drops of your favorite therapeutic grade essential oil or formula into about a quarter size amount of Face and Carrier Cream in palm of your hands. Mix by rubbing palms together, then apply to selected part of your body.
Face and Carrier Cream is bottled in an airless container to prevent oxidation of oils, so please do your part and STORE IN A COOL, DARK PLACE (bathroom cabinet or drawer is fine, never in direct sunlight). Disclaimer: Results may vary by person.
COMMON SENSE: if irritation occurs, discontinue use.
Healing Noni is privileged to bring you skin care recipes from Kathy Hoshijo, hostess of America’s first vegetarian natural foods TV [cooking] show ‘Kathy’s Kitchen’ (aired nationwide on PBS 1980-1990). Kathy, a pioneer in raising America’s awareness of what we put IN our bodies also saw the wisdom in avoiding chemicals ON our bodies. Kathy began mixing her own skin products in her kitchen because she couldn’t find any that met the criteria she was looking for. The result is Healing Noni Skin Care Products - the purest line of skin care products containing only Nature’s best skin nutrients carefully selected for their benefits to all skin types.
Awareness of the importance of avoiding chemicals applied ON the skin because they end up IN our bodies has grown to the point that even large commercial cosmetic companies are touting “Paraben Free,” “Formaldehyde Free,” etc. However, carefully reading ingredient labels reveals that the majority of skincare products claiming to be “natural” actually contain ingredients known to be toxic or harmful.
Healing Noni Nourishing Botanical Face and Carrier Cream has the distinction of being one of the very few face cream products that are completely free of ALL forms of alcohol – both the liquid ones, often referred to as “bad” alcohols, and the thick wax textured fatty alcohols (which have been sold to the majority of skincare manufacturers as milder “good” alcohols). The debatably “good”alcohols are used in almost all lotions and creams, even natural ones, because they are supposed to be mild alcohols that are a cheap way to moisturize skin, as well as emulsify (keep oil and water in product from separating) and thicken products. Fatty alcohols were never a consideration as an ingredient for Healing Noni products because:
1) The primary standard for selecting ingredients in Healing Noni skincare products is they must have a long proven track record of being beneficial to skin with no reputation for possibly doing harm. Fatty alcohols were automatically rejected because there is evidence that repeated use of products containing fatty alcohols can cause clogged pores, skin irritation and damage. But because damage isn’t obvious immediately after the first uses, fatty alcohols often aren’t identified as a cause. (see Dr. Geoffrey Nase’s well documented open letter to a rosacea support group).
2) The main reason fatty alcohols were never a consideration in our products is that we are 100% committed to not using any ingredients derived from animal or petroleum in Healing Noni products. Fatty alcohols are derived from animal fat, petroleum, or plant oils, and their MSDS sheets don’t disclose what the origin is. For example, cetyl alcohol is the original fatty alcohol. It was made, since its invention in 1817, from sperm whale spermaceti treated with high heat and lye/caustic potash. Since the worldwide moratorium on commercial whaling in 1982, it is more likely to be made from other whale oils, an end-product of petroleum or coconut or palm oil instead. (see list of fatty alcohols, sources of fat, fatty acid that is isolated, and AKAs). Disclaimer: Results may vary by person.
3) Even if a fatty alcohol’s origin is a plant, even organically grown, the processing of the original oils and the resulting fatty alcohols are far from natural or organic. The original oil is processed with high heat and caustic metal salts to isolate a fatty acid, which is then reduced to a wax form.
Instead of cheaper fatty alcohols, Healing Noni Nourishing Botanical Face and Carrier Cream contains only the best organic (wildcrafted when indicated), unheated, unadulterated botanical butter and oils historically used for healthy skin - with their fatty acids and nutrients still intact, so they nourish while moisturizing. Extra virgin red palm oil was so valued by the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt as a sacred food that it was entombed with them so they could continue to reap its benefits in the afterlife. Because modern science has validated its nutritional benefits, encapsulated red palm oil is currently sold as a nutritional supplement. With moisture retention of 240% its weight, wildcrafted extra virgin Cupuacu butter surpasses better known shea butter and lanolin. Historically known worldwide for restoring and optimizing skin health, Tamanu oil has many AKAs in numerous languages. A perfectly balanced blend of these oils plus wildcrafted apricot kernel and sweet almond oils, organic therapeutic grade essential oils selected for their historical benefits to skin, are combined with bio-available nutrients to supplement your skin’s natural function of sealing moisture in with healthy natural oils.
The bio-available nutrients start with the noni superfood, since one of noni’s primary historical uses by Polynesians, native Australians, and throughout Southeast Asia was applying it to skin to keep it healthy and ageless looking. The traditional way to make noni juice is to allow the rich stores of active enzymes in noni fruit to break the fruit down until it digests and liquefies itself (no water added); thus, it’s a naturally predigested food whose beneficial nutrients are broken down to a form cells in the body can utilize. Vegan DMAE, an analog of the B vitamin choline, is another nutrient our bodies synthesize, and can be taken orally for healthy neurotransmitter, brain, and muscle function. When smoothed on skin’s surface, DMAE improves the appearance of skin tone noticeably. Its visible nourishing effects on deeper layers of skin and underlying muscles increases with continued use. Other skin enhancing nutrients include: vitamins A+C+E, extracts of beneficial by-products of probiotics, and Nature’s balanced complex of 72+ trace minerals that have been made bio-available through plant synthesis. Minerals in their solid rock or soil form can’t be assimilated by human cells, but when minerals in soil are taken in with water through a plant’s roots and synthesized by the plant, the plant converts minerals to a form readily usable by our bodies. This synergistic blend of luxurious organic oils and bio-available nutrients is quickly absorbed, leaving no greasy coating on your skin. Disclaimer: Results may vary by person.

I love this duo! I have used the Healing Noni Uplifting Botanical Moisture Mist and the Botanical Face & Carrier Cream for about a month now. I’ve used facial mists that I’ve bought at the health food store before and have not been too impressed with what they do for my skin. I ended up using them during the summer as a “spritz” to cool off, without the expectation of them doing much else. I was really interested in trying the Uplifting Moisture Mist as my skin is beginning to show its age - it’s starting to look tired and less vibrant. (I’m almost 49 years old.) I use both products together in the morning and at night and found that these are not just your ordinary mist and facial cream! The mist is refreshing but my skin also began to look tighter and more alive! The hydration truly does feel to be locked in and delivered to my skin when I use the NBF & C Cream after the mist. My face feels and looks radiant without any greasiness! I love these products! Finally, no more guesswork as to what products will truly nourish and hydrate my skin and keep it looking young and healthy.

Left my skin feeling hydrated and only after one month of use it’s already reducing my wrinkles. It also feels very clean and light on my skin, without being sticky.

It’s true that fatty alcohols have been sold to the majority of skincare manufacturers as milder “good” alcohols, and this information is then passed on to their customers. The “good” alcohols are used in almost all lotions and creams, even natural ones, because they are a cheap way to moisturize skin, as well as emulsify (keep oil and water in product from separating) and thicken products. The main reason fatty alcohols were never a consideration in Healing Noni products is that we are 100% committed to never using ingredients derived from animals or petroleum or their by-products. The fat source for fatty alcohols can be animal fat, petroleum, or plant oils, and MSDSs don’t disclose what the origin is. For example, cetyl alcohol is the original fatty alcohol. It was made, since its invention in 1817, from sperm whale spermaceti treated with high heat and lye/caustic potash. Since the International Whaling Comission’s worldwide moratorium on commercial whaling in 1982, cetyl alcohol is more likely to be made from other whale oils, an end-product of petroleum or coconut or palm oil. (see list of fatty alcohols, sources of fat, fatty acid that is isolated, and AKAs).Given that there is an international moratorium on commercial whaling in place, it’s surprising that there are any whale-derived products on the market at all. But there have always been countries that disregarded the moratorium. The IWC is a voluntary organization, and it’s moratorium is voluntary as well. The moratorium has never been an enforceable international treaty with penalties for violation. According to PETAs Caring Consumer, stearyl alcohol can be made from whale or plant oils.
There are numerous human studies and articles written about fatty alcohols that point to them not being as mild as they are purported to be. A 1992 -1995 study tested five fatty alcohols on 146 human patients with sensitive skin. The study reported that over 23% of the participants had reactions to fatty alcohols, and thus concluded that skin irritation and damage “is not rare in patients with contact dermatitis.” (Contact dermatitis from fatty alcohols in Contact Dermatitis 35: 287-289) As described in Dr. Geoffrey Nase’s well-documented open letter to a rosacea support group, fatty alcohols often go unidentified as the cause of clogged pores, skin irritation and damage because the problem(s) aren’t apparent immediately, but are “cumulative irritation (i.e., redness or irritation that does not show up immediately, but slowly progresses over a period of days or weeks).” See Dr. Nase’s letter for multiple referenced studies that point to fatty alcohols as being problematic.
Superior to cheaper fatty alcohols (fats unnaturally altered with chemicals that are caustic to skin), are unheated, unrefined organic or wild crafted butters and oils that provide deep moisturization and nourishment to skin, and also have the ability to emulsify and thicken products.
Not necessarily. There are some people who have allergies to specific plants, so they can have an allergic reaction to a plant-based product that contains the plant they are allergic to even if the plant is organically grown. People who know what plant(s) they are allergic to have to read labels carefully to avoid ingredients that are allergens. People who know they have allergies, but don’t know what they are allergic to or haven’t tested to identify allergens, are usually in the habit of doing a small patch test on their skin when trying a new product. As far as common allergies go, Healing Noni skincare products are soy and gluten free, but contain tree nut oils in all products except the Colloidal Botanical Cleanse.

“Therapeutic grade essential oils” are very different from oils simply labeled “essential oils,” or “fragrance or perfume grade essential oils,” “pure grade,” “aromatherapy,” or even “certified organic” essential oils.
Essential oils are volatile liquids extracted from seeds, roots, bark, stems, leaves, fruit, flowers, or branches of the plant, ideally by proper traditional distillation. “Certified organic essential oils” are oils extracted from organically grown plants on farms that meet the USA organic specifications, and assures that no synthetic chemicals or solvents were used in extracting the oils. Oils that don’t meet the “therapeutic grade” standard are sold as “essential oils,” “aromatherapy oils, “ or “fragrance or perfume grade ESSENTIAL oils.” “Fragrance oils” or “perfume oils” on a label aren’t essential oils at all, but are synthetic.
For an oil to be labeled “therapeutic grade” every batch has to pass testing that checks whether specific beneficial compounds are at essential levels needed for therapeutic effects specified by Association French Normalization Organization Regulation (AFNOR-a French standardization organization) standards or ISO certification (International Standards). Since Europeans, Asians and the Middle Eastern cultures have been using essential oils and botanical extracts for thousands of years they are far ahead of the USA in knowing and setting standards. The standard form of testing is Gas Chromotographic (GC) Spectrometer, usually done through an independent lab since the equipment is very expensive. Companies that sell truly therapeutic grade essential oils provide sheets of test results (upon request) for the specific batch being purchased. Disclaimer: Results may vary by person.
If an essential oil is being used for any purpose other than a pleasant smell, therapeutic grade oils should be used. The essential oils used in Healing Noni skincare are Organic Therapeutic Grade essential oils that are specifically selected for their historically established benefits to skin.
Top quality essential oils are very concentrated because it always takes huge quantities of plant material to produce small amounts of oil. Of course the amount every plant yields is different, but a couple example of how concentrated essential oils are – it takes 4,000 lbs of Bulgarian roses to make one pound of essential rose oil, and 100 lbs of lavender to make 1 pound of lavender essential oil. Thus, high-quality therapeutic oils with components still intact are so concentrated that they always come with instructions to dilute them in a carrier. The carrier can be an oil or oil mixture, chemical-free lotion, etc. As you will experience, Healing Noni Nourishing Face and Carrier Cream is a highly effective carrier because your skin drinks it in so quickly. It truly is absorbed into the deeper layers of skin – unlike alcohols, which only give the illusion that a product is absorbed by evaporating quickly, leaving skin dry. You can add your own therapeutic grade essential oils to Healing Noni’s Face and Carrier Cream and/or our Nourishing Botanical Lotion to spread your favorite scent, or healing effect, where ever you want it.

The two products are formulated to be used together to closely mimic and enhance your skin’s natural functions. The layer of skin visible to our eyes is the epidermis. It’s the body’s largest living, breathing organ. Like all organs in the body, your skin can take in nutrients and expel waste. It also serves as a protective barrier, even though a healthy epidermis is only about as thick as a sheet of copy paper. It is referred to as the lipid (oil/fat) barrier, moisture barrier, or the acid mantle interchangeably because it is all those things. One of skin’s barrier functions is to keep water within the body - full of bio-available nutrients to nourish cells - from evaporating through skin’s surface (about 22 square feet of surface on average sized adult). Natural oils/lipids, made by the body, seal in the body’s water content in the top layers of the epidermis; thus it’s called the lipid or moisture barrier because the lipids help to seal in the moisture of intercellular water. Another function of the epidermis is to protect everything inside of it from external threats: 1- environmental (oxidation, ultraviolet rays, wind, weather and climate changes, pollution, air conditioning and heating in buildings, etc.) 2- microbial (bad bacteria, fungi, molds, etc.). Your skin’s oils and sweat make the PH of your skin’s surface acidic (in the range of 4.5-5.5). This natural acidity kills off most of the microbes that come into contact with skin’s surface – thus it’s sometimes called the acid mantle. Injury to the acid mantle – such as cuts or tiny fissures or cracks between surface skin cells from dry skin (caused by skin being put in and left in an alkaline PH) are entry portals for bacteria or potential irritants, which creates the risk of infection, inflammation, and/or allergic reaction.

The reasons for the Pure and Simple steps, especially for the face and neck, is because they are the parts of your body everyone sees, and are constantly exposed to the environment: 1) Cleanse with Colloidal Botanical Cleanse because it’s a gentle yet thorough cleanse that won’t strip your skin of its natural protective oils, and is free of petroleum-based chemicals and sulfates. 2) Uplifting Botanical Moisture Mist immediately restores your skin’s acidic PH, while providing an under-layer of water-soluble nutrients beneficial to skin. This unique Mist provides super hydration with hyaluronic acid, in the same way water within the body carries bio-available nutrients to nourish cells. 3) As skin naturally seals water moisture in with its own oils, the best organic and wildcrafted botanical oils for skin in Nourishing Botanical Face and Carrier Cream supplement your skin’s natural oils to seal in the under layer of moisture and water-soluble nutrients from the Moisture Mist. Also, the skin nourishing DMSO base in Face and Carrier Cream literally carries water-soluble nutrients from the Moisture Mist, along with the nourishing ingredients in Face and Carrier Cream itself to your skin’s deeper layers. DMSO’s excellent carrying properties are the reason it’s extremely important to apply Face and Carrier Cream only to freshly cleansed skin, and is ideal to wash with water filtered through a whole house water filter or shower filter to remove chemicals in the water. DMSO’s carrying properties are also the reason it serves as the most effective carrier for therapeutic grade essential oils. Disclaimer: Results may vary by person.
Putting only beneficial nutrients on your skin’s surface, as Healing Noni’s skincare does, also takes advantage of the fact that whatever is applied to your skin’s surface is absorbed. Like all organs, and every live cell in the body, skin takes in nutrients and expels waste. How skin absorbs what’s on its surface is a relatively new area of study and exploration in the scientific and medical communities, but the fact that it does absorb has been accepted in the medical community long enough that transdermal medical patches have been developed and on the market for many years. A good example of this is the nicotine patch - enough nicotine is absorbed from a tiny patch into the bloodstream to lessen withdrawal symptoms for a quitting smoker. Ironically, it appears the industries that are all about skin – skincare and cosmetics –have chosen to ignore this important function of skin because they continue using toxic chemical ingredients that are as undesirable ON our bodies, as they are IN our bodies. Disclaimer: Results may vary by person.
Dry, flaky, or rough skin, breakouts, inflamed red skin, and wrinkles seem like separate skin conditions - and certainly a plethora of products have been developed to remedy each individually – however, the one thing each of these conditions has in common is that every single one is a symptom of a compromised or damaged skin barrier. So, the common resolution is to restore skin’s natural moisture barrier, or even better, never compromise or damage it in the first place.
In addition to using Healing Noni skincare products because they contain only nature’s best vegan skin nutrients, and are free from skin irritating or damaging ingredients such as alcohols, sulfates, petrochemical derived fragrance, preservatives, color, etc. Here are some habits that help protect the skin barrier:
If you own your home, use a whole-house water filter system; if renting, at least use a filter on the
shower head to avoid daily exposure to toxic and drying chemicals.
