founder’s story

Hi ya’ll, my name is Stephanie Quinn.

I’m the Founder and Creator of Monoi Botanicals. I grew up in Florida and spent many a day and night lounging around at the beach. I love the water and if it has anything to do with salt and sand, I’m in! I’m telling ya, I think I’m part fish! The smell and sound of the ocean, the salty breezes; it’s my peace, my escape and I’ve always been drawn to it.

As I got older, my love for the ocean never waned. I’m truly a beach gypsy, but I’m also a beauty junkie. I love great products; lotions, scrubs, make-up, skincare, I love it all. So I started experimenting with making my own products (that way I knew what was going into them). Now I’m not a very crafty/artsy person. In fact, I can’t even draw a stick figure with straight lines; but I can mix some stuff up in the kitchen! I started making body butters and scrubs and that’s when…

I discovered it, the MOTHER OF ALL OILS, my liquid SUMMER!
Tahitian Monoï Oil.

This is by far the best oil I have ever used in my entire life. It was love at first sight or should I say love at first use.

Authentic Tahitian Monoï Oil is only made in Tahiti, so not only is this the best oil EVER, it’s made on an island and for a beach girl, it doesn’t get any better than that. I immediately started using it in all of the products I had been cooking up in my kitchen and my family and friends were over the moon when they tried them, I knew I had something incredible.

My inspiration in creating Monoï Botanicals, was my need/want to merge my love for Tahitian Monoï Oil and my love for the ocean. I wanted to create products that were natural and smelled just like an exotic island vacation. So even when you can’t be at the beach, you can smell and feel like you are. Besides smelling absolutely delicious, I also wanted a product that was productive, it had to serve a purpose and the ingredients had to be good for you. I wanted Monoï Botanicals to do for your skin what it has done for mine.

My skin has been transformed using this oil,
it’s smoother, and super moisturized.


These were my goals, and I believe I’ve achieved them with these beautiful products.

I hope that you love Monoï Botanicals products as much as I have loved developing them for you. Monoï Botanicals truly is “Ocean Inspired Beauty.
