After Sea Aesthetics, aka ASA Maui, was created with the intention to make people feel good by blending visual beauty with the essences of nature. Passion and creativity are poured into each handcrafted item that is made.
The Tropical Elements line was inspired by the natural elements that make up Hawaii ~ Rain Forest, Ocean, Island Breeze and Volcano. These captivating perfumes were developed by blending tropical woods, fruits and flowers which people love to wear as their signature scent.
The delicious tropical fruits found in the Islands were the inspiration for the Tropical Delights line. Organic aloe vera, Vitamin E, and highly nourishing oils make our lotions the "ideal after-sun skin therapy." Through the powerful sense of smell, each lotion, bath gel, candle and perfume, will magically transport you to the Islands with the tropical aromas of Hawaii captured within. Ingredients used in ASA products are natural, vegan, cruelty-free and paraben-free.
The Earthstones and Keystones are unique pieces of jewelry that capture the subtle nuances found in the matrix of Mother Earth's own palette of colors. Each gemstone holds specific healing and spiritual attributes. They also correlate to astrology and numerology, making them especially thoughtful personal gifts.
Below are a listing of the most commonly asked questions and answers for those questions. They are listed in categories of Bath & Body, Candles, Jewelry, and General. If your question is not listed here, please feel free to e-mail us.
Q: Do you use 100% essential oils?
A: We do our best to use them when possible, but we must admit that to achieve some of the tropical scents, it is almost impossible to use 100% essential oils. We use a blend of essential oils and fragrance oils.
Q: What are the names of the all the different scents you make?
A: Rain Forest, Ocean, Island Breeze, Volcano in the Tropical Elements line. Passion Fruit, Orange Vanilla, Vanilla Coconut, Ginger Mango, Cocoa Butter and Aroma Free in the Tropical Delights line.... and we also make Hawaiian scented Tuberose, Maile, Coconut, and Plumeria Beeswax & Soy Candles.
Q: Are there any animal products used?
A: All of the lotions, gels and perfumes are vegan. The candles are made with Hawaiian beeswax.
Q: Will the lotions leave me feeling greasy?
A: Absolutely not... this is one of the strongest points about the lotions, they are "the ultimate moisturizing experience without a hint of greasiness!"
Q: Do you use lead wicks for your candles?
A: No, we use cotton braided wicks.
Q: What are your candles made of and how long do they burn?
A: The candles are made from long burning Hawaiian beeswax blended with soy wax making the travel tins last about 20 hours, the 7 oz candles burn about 35 hours and the 9 oz candle lasts about 45 hours. Usually the whole candle burns down, leaving very little residual wax.
Q: What kind of coins are on your Earthstone Pendants?
A: Authentic vintage Chinese coins from the early 1900's.
Q: Can you make the Keystones into a bracelet?
A: No. They would become too long and they would hit your knees too much when you drive. The use of an elastic cord is not strong enough.
Q: Are the Keystones breakable?
A: Yes, the stones may break if they are dropped on a very hard surface. If this happens to you, repairs can be made by sending your keystone back to ASA, 1215 S. Kihei Rd., Ste O, #1065, Kihei, HI 96753. Use First Class Mail for best rates. Please include a check for $7 for one broken stone and $10 for two broken stones. Include your address and phone number and broken stones for matching purposes.
Q: The string accidentally broke on my Earthstone necklace or Keystone keychain. Would you be able to restring it for me?
A: Yes. Please send $3 for shipping and return the item to:
ASA, 1215 S. Kihei Rd., Ste O, #1065, Kihei, HI 96753
Q: Are any of your products available outside of Hawaii?
A: Yes. There are a few store locations for the bath & body line and that is growing. The jewelry is sold exclusively in Hawaii and on the website. If you have any suggested retail locations, please email us to make your suggestion. You can visit the retail locations section to learn more.
Q: I would love to carry your line of products in my store. How can I get more information about this?
A: Visit our wholesale page to learn how you can be a retailer of our products.

"Every time I apply your vanilla coconut lotion it brings me back to the scent of the Hawaiian Islands. There's no other lotion that even compares to the scent of your vanilla coconut. I especially enjoy it right now during our cold Washington winter. I'm so glad I came across the lotion in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island. I will continue to purchase this lotion and my husband also loves the scent on me. Thank you so much for creating this wonderful product!"

"I purchased your Ocean fragrance while I was on Maui and I absolutely love it! I was looking for a light, exotic and sexy scent and Ocean is exactly that. I can't wait to get the lotion and bath gel!"
- Mahalo, Lani
"Regarding lotions: for years (and I'm a tough skinned person but...) I couldn't use any one lotion without eventually breaking out from it. For some reason (and all good!), I don't have that problem with your products. Hah! Makes me a steady customer!!"
