Coconut Cream (Cocos nucifera)

Coconut Cream (Cocos nucifera)

The coconut palm (Cocos nucifera) is thought to be native to the warm climates of Polynesia, Malaysia and southern Asia. 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 nuts. The nuts are the largest seed known to the world, and can take up to a year to fully mature.

Desiccated coconut is ground into a thick paste and pressed into bars to make creamed coconut.

We utilize creamed coconut in different ways; we grate it and also make it into an infusion.

We grate the creamed coconut bar to use it in our Coconut deodorant powder. Its soft texture makes it an ideal ingredient to keep your skin dry, comfortable and moisturized.

In our Trichomania solid shampoo, we melt the creamed coconut into the product as it is being made. It gives a beautiful shine to the hair and nourishes the scalp, too.
