Cocos Nucifera

Products we use it in: African Black Soap Shampoo.

What is Cocos Nucifera - is also known as Coconut Oil. is a hypoallergenic oil extracted from the kernels of coconut palm seeds and is similar to coconut oil used for cooking.

Why we use it: It has antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties and is known to soothe dry skin, discourage dandruff, and help prevent ingrown hairs and razor burn. Additionally, it helps skin stay moisturized by preventing water loss through the skin’s pores.

Other benefits: It helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturizes and removes build-up around your hair follicles to jumpstart hair growth.
