This organic oil has been pressed from the seed of the Coconut palm Tree. The solid fatty acids have been removed from the coconut fat making it a thin, fluid, oil.
It adds body and good lubricating and softening properties to massage oils and other skin care products. A popular choice to use in the aromatherapy and massage industries due to its oxidative stability.
A good choice for liquid / sprayable perfumes.
It mainly works as an emollient, dispersing agent and solvent. As an emollient, it both quickly penetrates the surface to condition the skin/hair, and provides a lightweight and non-greasy barrier of lubrication.
Its oily texture helps to thicken skincare products and provides a slippery feel, which in turn allows for the easy spreadability of the product and a smooth after-touch.
In the countries where coconuts are found, it is used for its beneficial hair care qualities, such as making the hair shiny and glossy.
