Growing up in Hawaii was a trip. It was the summer of 1999, and at only 9 years old, I was already a fiery, creative, little lady with the world at my fingertips. Growing up, I had always enjoyed creating things with my grandpa and one summer day while at the beach, I had an idea to create a “cure all” skin care product called “Ocean Potion Lotion.” At that time, I believed the ocean, combined with sea salt and crashing waves, was a healer and I wanted to share that with the world or at least my community. Mind you, at the time, this was just a fun project and idea I had. If you asked me today what was in my product, I couldn’t tell you since the physical bottle is long gone. But I do remember including sand from a local beach in it as an exfoliator. It was more of a fun project and experiment for me but I still like reminiscing over it. My grandpa was so proud of my creativity and innovation, he still has the label on his refrigerator til this day.
Fast forward to today. Now, 20 years later, I am proud to say I am the Founder and CEO of my own island inspired wellness brand, Pualani Products. It has taken a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to get to this point but I still like to think I carry the creativity and innocence of my childhood self. One of my first products was a nod to the Ocean Potion Lotion, I named it Pualani Potion. Pualani Potion is an 1000mg broad spectrum tincture infused with terpenes so you get the benefits of the whole plant without the THC. Just like the product I created many years ago, Pualani Potion is a product I truly believe in. Pualani Potion has a great taste and flavor profile and can offer many health benefits.
I’ve come a long way since creating that first product back in ’99. But, over the years, my curiousity and drive have paved the way for me to becoming one of the first pioneers in the CBD and hemp industries. While there is no master recipe for success, I believe if you work hard and stay inspired, motivated, and passionate about your craft, everything will come to you in the right moment.
