Softening and conditioning
Coconut cream is an oil-rich paste which is obtained from the first press of the coconut flesh, and it smells like a big hug or a holiday on a perfect beach. Soothing and moisturising, it also conditions the hair and skin.
The coconut palm (Cocos nucifera) is thought to be native to the warm climates of Polynesia, Malaysia, and southern Asia. 'Kalpa vrishka,' the Sanskrit name for the coconut, means 'tree which gives all that is necessary for living.' The trees bloom and bear fruit throughout the year, growing a new flower spike nearly every month. This then becomes a cluster of six to twelve drupes. They are the largest seed known to the world and can take up to a year to fully mature.
By using coconut in different ways, such as cream, milk, or as an infusion or decoction, it allows products to have a variety of different textures.
