Coconut oil

Coconut is the dried kernel of the coconut (Cocos nucifera). It contains 50 to 68% oil.

Coconut oil, also known as copra oil, is rich in lauric acid and other saturated fatty acids that make it solid at temperatures below 25° C.

This oil reduces transepidermal water loss by restoring the skin’s hydrolipidic film. It is particularly appreciated for its emollient, moisturizing, and softening properties. It protects hair fibers against external aggressions and styling. It adds texture and softness to body butters.

It is highly nourishing and is therefore recommended for body and hair products. It provides moisture and shine to dull, damaged hair.
