MALU is the final step in your daily Honua Facial Ritual to keep your skin protected from the sun as well as daily environmental pollutants. MALU marries modern natural protectants with traditional Hawaiian ones and contains all reef-safe ingredients keeping our oceans in mind. Scents of jasmine merge with antioxidant noni and nourishing laukahi for a creamy, luxurious day cream that does not leave a white cast.  We use non-nano zinc oxide, which is broad spectrum.

A percentage of our proceeds from MALU benefits Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, a non-profit that educates our community and keeps our oceans clean.  Malu pink tops support Breast Cancer Prevention Partners!

Cruelty-Free. Palm-Free. Vegan. Synthetic Fragrance-Free.

Instructions For Use

Dispense 1-2 pumps onto clean, hydrated skin.  For drier skin, we love using our 'Ōlena Oil then allow it to sink into skin before applying Malu.  For more oily skin, you can apply Malu directly after the Aloha Youth Serum for maximum moisture and protection.  

For more information on our entire ritual, visit our post: The Honua Ritual 

 

Packaging

Every Honua product arrives in luxury glass bottles and jars that are completely recyclable or reusable.  Our outer cartons are made from recyclable kraftpaper.  Some of our Malu bottles come with pink tops, which support Breast Cancer Prevention Partners!

Best clean sunscreen!

Love this sunscreen, I’m in my second bottle and a subscribed customer now. Most clean sunscreens I’ve found leave a white cast that’s hard to blend in. This one is my favorite, I put it in and is so easy to blend, no white cast at all!!!, adds amazing glow to my skin. Best of all clean ingredients I feel comfortable adding into my skin. I have recommended this product to many of my friends and family. I will continue to purchase.

Fantastic product

Initially received this as a gift in a Causebox and ending up loving it so much I ordered it directly from the company when I ran out. It is so light yet keeps my skin soft and hydrated. The light floral hint is dreamy. Absolutely in love with this product!

Best daytime moisturizer

I discovered Honua in Causebox last year and am so happy I did! I've tried so so so many mineral SPFs because that is literally the only type of SPF I will buy for me and me kids. But most are whitening, thick and sometimes super greasy. Fine for my body and my kids - LOL - but not my face as I am not Casper the ghost. ha! Anyway, I love this and love that my purchase helps support beach cleanups. Yay!

Expiration date?

This was received in a subscription box within the last year. I used it a few times, but prefer another product during the winter. Tried to use it again this spring and had a bad reaction: face swelling, itchy, then peeled a few layers of skin a few days later. I can understand a product expiring several years after buying, but not just a few months. There was no expiration date on the packaging. Not sure what went wrong or which ingredients were the problem. I do not have sensitive skin.

Honua Hawaiian Skincare

Aloha Rahkah~ Thank you for your note and concern about expiration. Our SPF has expiration dates in two places - 1) on the bottom of the bottle itself, and 2) on the exterior of the carton, where it is printed. They are printed a bit small so I am so sorry it was not obvious to you. In the future, feel free to shoot us a note and we can help locate it! Regarding your reaction, that is odd - our Malu is good well past its expiration date and if you received it through a subscription box we were in, it likely has an expiration date of 6/22. Since you did not buy directly from us, I am not sure when/where you purchased but would be happy to look into it to determine the expiration. Thank you for sharing your experience!

Fantastic

Just a little bit goes a long way. I use one pump and my entire face and neck is good to go. Creamy, but not heavy. Not greasy. Absorbs quickly and feels amazing. I put this on every morning as the final step in my morning routine. I am able to apply makeup with ease immediately after. No need to wait for anything to soak in. It’s just perfect. I do the entire “Honua Ritual” 2x a day and rotate the masks every other day. My skin feels like a had a facial at the spa every day. I am so happy I found this product line. I just wish I found it sooner!
