I really don’t know where to start with this one, so apologies if I seem to be blabbering on in no particular order! I have recently discovered this brand/product and I’m just so thrilled with it!
I came across Kapuluan Coconut on Instagram, they gave me a cheeky follow and I had a nosey through their page (which is stunning by the way!), and I was instantly hooked. I clicked the link to the website and made my first purchase there and then…
Basically this brand and its products are made in the Philippines, using coconut from the trees they plant. For every product you buy from them, they plant another coconut palm tree. Kapuluan coconut works closely with its community, helping local farmers recover from the destruction from Typhoon Haiyan, and also working in partnership with the community to be self sustaining.
There are so many benefits to using coconut oil, here are a few mentioned on their website…
Coconut oil is a non-toxic sunscreen that has been used for thousands of years by the indigenous Pacific Islanders. The oil works to protect the skin and underlying tissues from damage to excessive exposure, also by orally consuming coconut oil you will help strengthen your skin making it less prone to sunburn.
I have literally gone crazy with my tube, and it’s nearly half gone already (I only got it a couple of days ago)! I have been using it for everything, but mainly on my face & body. You don’t need to use a lot, squeeze a small amount into your hands and the oil will melt making it easier to spread over your skin. It smells absolutely lush, such a pleasure to use. You can use it combined with your regular skincare, or if you’re like me, you can use it solo completely replacing the majority of your lotions and potions.
Coconut oil will keep your skin healthy, glowing, hydrated and smooth. It leaves a protective barrier on your skin against environmental and free radical damage, and as it is anti-oxidant and antibacterial, it helps to treat acne, itchiness, flakiness, dryness from eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. As it is loaded with vitamin E it will also help to repair skin damage, and protect against wrinkles.
I have used this as a mask overnight, I just completely drenched my hair in it, massaging it into my scalp, went to bed and washed it out thoroughly in the morning. There was a noticeable difference in the condition of my hair, it was fuller and glossier without greasiness.
Coconut oil has so many different uses and I won’t delve into them all, but you can use it for oil-pulling (which I’m keen to try & have been researching various YouTube channels for), and it’s safe for babies & pets. My dog absolutely loves it, wagging his tail for another taste haha! You can also use it for shaving, it works really well, leaving no irritation from the razor, and also as a lip balm or cuticle oil.
I love how it comes in a tube. You have such control over the amount you use, and it’s so easy too. When it’s warm you will see that it transforms from a fairly hard white substance to a clear oil.
Kapuluan coconut oil is 100% organic, all natural, pure and high grade for beauty and personal care. It is hand pressed without the use of large industrialised equipment, which is great for the environment and supporting the local farming families. The process used is kept simple, avoiding heat which produces the best quality coconut oil. If you take a look on their website, it really does give you so much more information, which I found really interesting and enjoyed!
I’ve touched on this in a previous post, but I really am trying to make small changes to my lifestyle which will hopefully end with me using all natural and cruelty free beauty products. I don’t think I could ever go completely vegan, that may be selfish of me, but surely making many and small changes in daily life and routine is a step towards helping the environment…
