The Maui Babe Story
How it all began
Maui Babe lotions love your skin, with what founder Joe Rossi calls “A gift from God”… and perhaps it was.
Here is what happened. The day was beautiful and sunny, like it usually is on Maui, and Joe had a problem. The United strike and Gulf War had dealt a crushing blow to his once profitable flower shops. The family home was being foreclosed, bill collectors were hounding him, and the future looked bleak for, him, his wife and four children. He had no idea what to do to get them out of this mess.
Needing to be alone to think, he climbed up on the roof of the old house to sit in the sun. He took with him his coffee, and the old baby oil and iodine tanning mixture. And he talked to God. With hands held out and eyes lifted to the heavens he asked for help. He told God that he didn’t know what to do. He asked God to guide him, to help him find a way to take care of his family.
When he was done praying, he was sitting there eyeing the baby oil, and he got the urge to pour his coffee into it. That evening he started putting in fresh Aloe and Kukui Nut oil like the Hawaiians use for sunburns. He mixed, and he cooked, and within a week he had perfected the formula.
He filled some plastic bottles, passed them out, and it wasn’t long before people were coming to the door saying “I need some more of that great stuff!! Look how tan I am!!!”
The house did indeed foreclose, and the family had to move to an old rental house. There, Joe made and bottled Maui Babe down in the tiny basement. Maui Babe quickly spread through the islands, and became the #1 selling tanning oil in Hawaii. Now just years later, Maui Babe can be found as far away as on yachts sailing in the Mediterranean Sea!
Joe believes with all his heart that God answered his prayers.
