The RARE INDIGO helps to:

• reinforce and support the skin barrier to help reduce moisture loss and promote long-term skin health
• restore troubled skin concerns at the cellular level to reduce inflammation
• lower oxidation damage in stressed tissue
• strengthen elasticity in dull, prematurely aging skin

This opulent soothing renewal treatment is bursting with formidable anti-inflammatory phytonutrient infusion, collagen-fostering vitamin C ester, high-content of antioxidants and replenishing essential fatty-acids that work to lower oxidation damage in stressed tissue, allowing the skin to be hydrated, nourished and youthful. The Rare Indigo beauty balm is supercharged with clinically-tested rare extract of the indigo plant and potent anti-inflammatory, chamazulene-rich actives, making this skin-renewing balm an indulgent skin treat.

From the royal color of the violet-blue indigo, to the tantalizing aroma of the luxurious essential oils, the balm is formulated to thoroughly indulge and pamper your skin and spirit. Being centered, being calm, being sensual all day long – that is The Rare Indigo.

Who is it for?

All skin types. Ideal for normal to oily skins and especially those concerned with signs of aging, and inflammation.

You need this if:

You desire a lightweight concentrated treatment moisturizer with flawless absorption for a healthy, dewy glow

You don’t need this if:

You do not enjoy using balms, facial oils or scented products.


Anhydrous non-comedogenic beauty balm concentrate, solid in colder temperature, and buttery-soft in warmth. Color varies from indigo-blue to hues of maroon, colored by nature, each balm an individual. The RARE INDIGO melts from a solid to a silky liquid as you massage it in your skin, absorbing flawlessly for a radiant, healthy glow that lasts and lasts.


Crisp with vanilla-sweet undertones, highlighted with refined florals of rose, helichrysum, ylang ylang, chamomile and iris. The RARE INDIGO offers a sophisticated aromatic experience that envelopes your senses as you open your jar. It swirls around your nose like a refreshing night-air, only to dissipate, leaving you relaxed, and renewed.

Your MAHALO ritual : how to use

For maximum absorption, gently massage onto cleansed face, neck, and décolleté while skin is still damp, or following The Flower of Flowers and/or The Hawaiian Hydration (sold separately). Use as part of your morning and evening skincare ritual. The RARE INDIGO balm can also be used as a primer or mix it with your foundation for a dewy finish.


What’s Inside?

here are some key ingredients

Murumuru butter

Offers unique composition of essential fatty acids (Omega-6 and Omega-3) and Pro-Vitamin A, delivering excellent emollient properties to the skin.  Non-comedogenic – meaning it will not clog your pores or be the cause of a breakout. This butter is able to penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin performance that promote skin regeneration.


Contains a high content of diketones, which are known for their anti-inflammatory and cell regenerating properties. Helichrysum Italicum will diminish and repair scar formations, accelerate the growth of new skin tissue, and calm any inflammation because of the diketones. Furthermore, breakouts are reduced because of the potent antibacterial properties.

Babassu oil

The oil is rich in antioxidants, helping to reduce cellular damage caused by harmful free radicals. Babassu oil is packed with vitamin E, and essential fatty acids with a high concentration of lauric acid which offers anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.

Hemp seed

Contains all 21 amino acids and one of the highest Omega 6 and 3 essential (not naturally produced by our body) fatty acids which are key components for maintaining healthy skin. The Linoleic (62% composition) and alpa-Linolenic acids deliver potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties for treatment of acne, dermatitis and other skin inflammatory conditions etc. Studies indicate that hemp seed oil can dramatically decrease skin dryness to alleviate itching and irritation. Has anti-aging effects on skin by improving the composition of epidural lipids (fats in the outermost skin layer) and improve the overall functioning of skin


Highly regarded since ancient times for its antioxidant properties, this oil helps to brighten, calm, and balance sensitive and irritated skin.

Carrot seed

Is high in antioxidants such as beta-carotene, which is recognized for its ability to increase cell turnover, regenerating skin, and making it effective for healing epidermis damage. The scientific studies have shown that beta-carotene has been found to protect the skin from UV rays, pollution, and stress.

The Most Calming Balm:

I have aggressively sensitive and combative combination skin. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this balm but the reviews had me curious enough to try. I’m so glad that I did. My skin is happy, moisturized and glowing…and not in that excess sebum way. This is a keeper! Thank you Mahalo. ” ~Elaine

The Rare Indigo beauty balm has a uniquely-soft and creamy consistency which differs from our Mahalo Balm or other balms on the market that are generally solid in room temperature. The suggestion of “a little goes a long way” is most appropriate, as a drop of this concentrated potion is all you need to nourish your thirsty complexion.

* For an extra boost of nourishment layer over, or mix with The Vitality Elixir facial serum

Q: How long will the 30ml jar last?
A: With daily use, morning and/or night, it will last you approximately 4-6 months

Q: I have received my Rare Indigo in the mail, and it looks liquid. Has it gone bad?
A: It is completely normal for the Rare Indigo to melt in temperatures over 85F, and in no way alter’s its efficacy. Simply place the balm in the fridge for 1-2 hrs for the butters and oils to solidify, and enjoy.

Q: How do I store the Rare Indigo?
A: It is important to store ALL Mahalo products, including the Rare Indigo, in a cool, dry place. We do not recommend keeping them in the bathroom, as the humidity and warm temperatures will cause to serum to lose it’s potency faster. In the hot summer months you may wish to store the Rare Indigo in the crisper of your refrigerator.

Q: Oils break me out, I am afraid that the Rare Indigo will do the same.
A: The formula of the Rare Indigo contains only the non-comedogenic ingredients, the ingredients that do not to block pores. If you are new to using oils/balms on your skin, we recommend to begin with 1/3 pea size. Apply over wet/damp skin, so to allow for increased hydration and moisture balance of your skin.
