Description

Description

Thought to be native to Polynesia, Malaysia and southern Asia the coconut palm, of the Arecaceae family, blooms and fruits all year round. Contrary to what their name might suggest, the coconut is a drupe, not a nut.

Shredded coconut (copra made from the inner lining of the coconut) is used to make coconut oil. As well as in cosmetics it has been used for centuries in cooking.

The two main sources of coconut oil Lush uses are located on Indonesian islands off of mainland Sumatra. Here the producers work closely with local farmers maintaining year-round production.
