(Cocos nucifera)

The coconut palm (Cocos nucifera) is thought to be a native of Polynesia, Malaysia, and southern Asia. The trees bloom and fruit all year round. Nearly every month, a new flower spike emerges from the tree’s crown, developing into a cluster of six to twelve nuts. Each nut takes a year to mature and is the largest seed known.

The trees may yield up to 200 coconuts in a year, but more commonly yield sixty.

When coconuts are young, their flesh is soft, like that of a melon, and local peoples prefer them this way. They eat them as a rich food, even feeding their babies with the soft flesh.

Young, unripe coconuts contain nutritious water, the liquid endosperm of the nut. The liquid supports the growth of the seed inside. As the nut matures, the water also supports the development of the characteristic white flesh inside the husk.

Coconut water, when harvested from unripe nuts, is used as a refreshing drink. It is a popular beverage in many countries and is an excellent, natural isotonic drink alternative to sports drinks. It hydrates the body and replaces glucose and lost nutrients.

The water is a plant-filtered, naturally sterile and pH balanced liquid. It is rich in magnesium, iodine (essential for healthy functioning of the thyroid gland) and potassium.

The revitalising properties of organic coconut water are ideal for use on the skin, scalp and hair.

Coconut water is soothing and hydrating on the skin, making it a beautiful base for our Vanilla Dee-Lite lotion.
