Coconut Tree of life
Ayurveda calls the coconut palm “a tree that provides everything needed for life”. Coconut is rich in fatty acids that are essential for the skin. What is more, it includes omega-9 and omega-6 unsaturated acids as well as vitamin E. The main ingredient that distinguishes it from other oils is lauric acid. This acid occurs in breast milk, and besides that, the highest concentration of lauric acid occurs in virgin coconut oil. Lauric acid has proven antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. In cosmetics, coconut oil perfectly moisturized and nourished the skin. It is the most natural hair conditioner and an excellent cosmetic that protects one’s hair from the negative impact of harmful factors.
Two highly important issues that we pay attention to when buying coconut oil for our cosmetics are the source and the method of pressing the oil. We purchase the coconut oil only from reliable suppliers, from farms that do not disturb the balance of ecosystems. We are aware that the value of the oil is determined by the way it is obtained. That is why the coconut oil used in Orientana’s natural cosmetics is cold-pressed, which preserves all photochemical compounds – the most valuable, nutritious and protective ingredients. It is the purest form of coconut oil resembling white water, that contains high levels of natural vitamin E.
