Coconuts have been an important source of nutrition, an ingredient in skincare and a building material for hundreds of years in areas across the world. In some languages it means ‘tree that gives all that is necessary for living’ - certainly lives up to its name.
Coconuts grow on palm trees that flourish in humid, seaside environments, so it’s no surprise that their aroma is synonymous with tropical beach destinations. It is used in our skin and hair care products because it’s highly nutritious, moisturizing and a bonus is that its recognizable aroma takes us straight to the tropics without having to leave home.
