Why Coconut Oil?

and why its our hero ingredient!

With the coconut palm referred to as ‘the tree of life’, island cultures have long been privy to the skin secret that is Coconut Oil. It has been used for centuries to improve the health of both skin and hair. When we too discovered coconut oil’s incredible beneficial properties, we thought it only fair to share this knowledge with you and also to name our organic brand after the humble ‘kelapa’ – Indonesian for ‘coconut’.

Exceptionally moisturising, without feeling oily or greasy on the skin, Coconut Oil is easily absorbed by our skin as it has a similar molecular structure to sebum (your skin’s natural oil). This natural affinity that Coconut Oil has with the skin assists in its ability to protect it, forming an emollient barrier that helps fight pollution and antioxidant damage.

With its hundreds of uses and health benefits, incorporating Coconut Oil in our range helps to take our products from being beautiful to therapeutical. Coconut Oil has anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties that can assist with skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema.

At Kelapa Organics, we pride ourselves on using Certified Organic Coconut Oil in our formulations. Being Certified Organic means that a heat-free and chemical-free process is used to ensure that our Coconut Oil is as pure as they come, and packed with maximum nutrition for the skin. Better for you, better for your skin.
