Coconut (cocos nucifera)
Coconut has become a choice drink for athletes and runners for its hydrating abilities in the form of water, but its hydrating properties don't stop there!
Extracted from coconuts and used as a base for many soaps and lotions, Coconut oil has exceptional abilities to deeply moisturize and nourish. With hydrating properties similar to petroleum, Coconut oil coats and penetrates skin without suffocating pores. The oil also reduces protein loss in hair, leaving behind remarkable shine.
Coconut oil contains antibacterial and antifungal properties, so is effective in preventing and treating skin irritations such as diaper rash. It is especially beneficial for treating dry and chapped lips. Coconut Oil also prevents free-radical damage to skin and can strengthen skin tissue.
