Pacific Biodiesel took Earth Day to heart with a celebration this past Sunday of their ever-growing popular sunflowers. Beginning next week on May 1st, the company will allow tours of the property in hopes of educating people about biodiesel operations.
The sunflowers produce not only biofuel, but are now being incorporated into natural skin care products including sunscreen and food cooking oil. The new skincare line is called Kuleana. The goal of the company is to use the sunflowers for more than just biofuel.
Some of the body oils are now being sold at several locations. Local spas throughout the area are using the sunflower oil for spa treatments. Beauty products from the sunflower oil production have taken off! Those interested in learning more, the tours will be a part of “Maui Made Fresh Tours”.
Congratulations on your success! We look forward to watching what the future brings!
