Why Coconut?
Coconut (Cocos nucifera) is one of nature's most multi-tasking offerings, rich in essential vitamins.
Coconut oil is light, nongreasy and exceptionally emollient. Whether youÂ’re interested in the
fruit's water, milk, meat, shell or oil, there are plenty of reasons to appreciate the natural
awesomeness of Coconut!
Did you know?
Fun Fact #1
Coconut oil's rich moisturizing properties come from its combination of fatty acids (lauric, capric, caprylic, myristic and palmitic). The result of which makes for a pretty unique oil: at room temperature the oil is solid and only with the slightest increase in temperature turns to liquid. This change in physical form results in easy skin absorption, making it the perfect choice for dry skin that needs a heavy dose of hydration.
Fun Fact #2
You also can get great hydration from Coconut water! Coconut water has fewer calories, less sodium and more potassium than most sports drinks and is an excellent low-fat, low-sugar source of nourishment for exercisers and non-exercisers alike.
Fun Fact #3
The name coconut is derived from 16th century Portuguese sailors who thought the 3 small holes on the coconut shell resembled the human face so dubbed the fruit "coco" meaning "grinning face, grin, or grimace" The word nut was added in English later on.
