WHAT TYPE OF WAX DO YOU USE ?
Here at Shores Co. we hand pour our candles and oils using only the highest quality ingredients. Our candles are made with an all natural blend predominately coconut wax, and secret blend of natural waxes. We never use additives, pesticides or parabens, allowing the true scent to burn cooler and longer. Each product is hand poured right here in the USA.
ARE YOUR FRAGRANCES PHTHALATE FREE ?
Yes our fragrances are phthalate free. Phthalates are used in many name brands, but Shores Co. is not willing to sacrifice our quality products. We strive to make the healthiest and eco friendly fragrances by using organic and natural pure ingredients. We don't want our customers breathing in harmful/concerning chemicals!
WHAT IS MONOI DE TAHITI OIL ? WHY IS IT SOLID ?
Our perfumeria bath and body oil is made with 100% Tahitian coconut oil. Monoi oil is processed using tiare flower hand-picked at a very particular stage of growth, specifically when they are still unopened. The flowers are immediately taken and placed in refined coconut oil for a minimum of 15 days. This is known as "enfleurage" (flower soaking) a delicate and beautiful process practiced for over 2,000 years. When temperatures drop below 68 degrees you'll notice your perfumeria oil may be solid, thats because this is coconut oil in its truest form. Don't worry we recommend you place bottle in warm towel or run under warm water until it liquifies.
