Coconut oil is a white to yellowish-white vegetable fat obtained from the fruit of the coconut palm. At room temperature the oil is in a solid state, but becomes softer and melts when heated. 

Coconut oil has a moisturising and cooling effect. The oil is absorbed quickly by the skin, but only superficially. The oil relaxes the facial skin and gives a fresh complexion. For irritated skin areas or sunburn, coconut oil provides a cooling, soothing relief.

Coconut oil is also a treat for the hair. Coconut oil has a nourishing, regulating effect on hair, hair roots and scalp. It smoothes the hair and gives it moisture and shine.
