About the ingredients
Emerald Shores's core ingredient is the skin reparing Tahitian Tamanu Oil, and it also contains moisturising shea butter and mango butter.
Tamanu oil is known for its skin repairing properties. It's often used to soothe and repair stretch marks, scars and areas prone to irritation and redness. It's also a popular ingredient in eczema treatments.
Tamanu oil comes from the nuts of a tropical tree called Calophyllum inophyllum, which is native to the South Pacific islands but can also be found in Southeast Asia, India, and parts of Africa and Australia.
Shea butter has been used in Africa and other countries for years to improve skin and hair. Shea Butter has great moisturising and nourishing properties, plus it also protects the skin from UV radiations thanks to the Cinnamic Acid and Vitamin A it contains (SPF 4-6). Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps with skin repair, making it a great natural product to apply on sunburn.
Mango butter is obtained by extracting the content of the mango seed and cold-pressing it into a creamy butter. Mango butter is an effective moisturiser, full of vitamin E that could help protect your skin from environmental stressors like sunlight and pollution. Mango butter also contains high concentrations of Vitamin C, which research shows stimulates the production of collagen.
Mango butter is often included as an ingredient in chocolates and other snacks.
How to use on...
Dry skin & hands: warm in your hands and apply on dry areas.

A little story...
When Lily (O+N founder) was in Tahiti for her honeymoon, a local man told her of a high-end luxury skincare brand that was very interested in buying the Tamanu Oil produced on the islands. She then researched the incredible benefits of the Tahitian Oil and decided to create a balm that incorporated that unique ingredient.
This is now one of her favourite moisturisers, as it reminds her of the peaceful and sunny shores of French Polynesia.
We are an australian family business
All our products are handmade with love in Melbourne, Australia.
We are very passionate about supporting the local economy. That's why all our ingredients are sourced from Australian companies, and all our labels are also supplied and printed by an Australian company.
Eco friendly packaging
We focus on using quality, re-usable or recyclable packaging.
Unfortunately, most dispensing systems, such as essential oil dripolators and glass pumps, end up in landfil. That's why many of our products are sold with a choice of closure: you can order the dispensing system you'd like the first time, and then re-use it for your next product.
The majority of skincare products use plastic labels. These also end up in landfil or break down in the ocean into micro-plastics. That's why all our labels are made of sustainably-sourced paper and are recyclable and biodegradable.
We do not use any plastic when packing your order.
