Organic coconut oil is a wonderful 100% skin food for all skin types. It is an effective all over body moisturiser, absorbing very readily into the skin and keeping it soft, but not greasy.
Coconut oil is ideal for all over moisturising and for maintaining strong, healthy skin. We recommend applying it after a warm shower while the skin is still warm. Watch your skin drink it in! Coconut oil helps to rehydrate dry, hungry and undernourished skin. Ideal for everyday skin maintenance, the small molecular structure of coconut oil allows for easy absorption through the skin, giving it a soft, smooth texture. Use it as it is, or add a drop or two of ylang ylang oil for an aromatic body oil.
Organic coconut oil is wonderful to use as a hair treatment oil as it softens the hair and conditions the scalp. Using the coconut oil as a pre-wash conditioner will help achieve soft, shiny hair! Coconut oil is famed for its ability to strengthen the structure of damaged, devitalized hair being an effective lubricator. It also softens the hair shaft through the action of minerals such as magnesium, potassium, calcium and iron. The best way to apply the coconut oil is to massage the oil gently into the scalp and leave in for up to half an hour before shampooing out.
More of a coconut butter at normal room temperature, it melts quickly on contact with the skin. If you keep it in a warm place (such as a sunny windowsill) it will melt into a light oil. Take care if you carry it in your handbag! It will melt if left in a warm car. Coconut oil will return to it’s more solid state as soon as it cools.
Organic coconut oil is the perfect choice for top to toe moisturising.
