Exotic fragrance, scent that recalls faraway countries, cuddles the senses: yes, yes, the coconut products are a real panacea for body and mind! In the summer then they play a role as masters!
Beyond the beneficial properties for the soul, coconut is an amazing ingredient. Coconut (Cocos Nucifera) is rich in magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium and phosphorus. There are also vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B5 and Vitamins C and E.
Each element of this fruit makes it a real elixir of beauty. Rich in antioxidants helps to counteract the free radical formations. Emollient and moisturizing, deeply nourishes both the skin and the hair.
Hair products based on coconut play an important detangling and illuminating action. Often rich in coconut oil, they protect the hair fiber and brighten its brightness.
The pure oil naturally under 25 Â° C is solid, but it is sufficient to slightly heat it in a bain-marie to bring it back to its liquid state without altering its qualities. It can be used as a compress on wet hair to nourish and polish them or to protect them from dehydration caused by sun, chlorine, wind and salt.
For body care, coconut can be used in all its forms.
Coconut water, the semitransparent liquid contained inside the nut, helps to hydrate, refresh and perfume, excellent as a soothing after-sun.
The oil can be used as an after-bath to hydrate and deeply nourish the skin. In summer we tend to use coconut oil to intensify the tanning, but be careful, it has no protective function from ultraviolet rays, that’s why it is good to use it only if you are already tanned or if combined with a protection factor appropriate to own skin type.
Coconut has incredible properties also as food: very useful milk, extracted by squeezing the pulp, as a vegetable drink to replenish the mineral salts, helps to purify and eliminate toxins for diuretic activity.
