International Monoi Contest

Set up in 2003 by the Monoi Institute, the Monoi International Contest is a competition designed to raise awareness of Monoi de Tahiti among cosmetics industry professionals. Every year, a different theme is used to reveal a new aspect of Monoi de Tahiti via an original formula.

A jury made up of marketing, formulation and innovation specialists assesses and judges the best projects.

The most creative project earns a trip to French Polynesia.

Themes for 2007

  • Formulation: the Tahitian Spa
  • Special packaging prize: Monoi Traveler

This 3rd edition was totally dedicated to celebrating Monoi de Tahiti as an invitation to travel. An invitation to take part in a journey of the senses with a formulation theme focused on the Tahitian Spa – to imagine an amazing formula, a magical kind of care, a consummate ritual of regeneration bringing freedom from stress and awakening the joy of radiant energy.

An invitation to travel also this year with a special packaging prize on the theme “Monoi Traveler” - so that Monoi de Tahiti can be with you wherever you go.
