We are nuts about coconuts! Read on to learn more about coconut oil and why we use it in Senica skincare products.
Botanical Name: Cocos Nucifera
Source: Extracted from the kernel or meat of coconuts
Why Its Wonderful: Oil is semi-solid at room temperature, is rich in vitamin E and helps to moisturize, soften, protect and cleanse the skin and hair. It is also believed to reduce protein loss when used in the hair. Because it provides a rich creamy lather and moisturizing properties, coconut oil is also one of the preferred oils used to make Senica’s high quality cold process soap bars.
Actions/Purpose: Moisturizer, skin softener
Scent: Slight coconut smell, sometimes odorless
Senica products with coconut oil: Coconut oil is one of the main ingredients used in Sénica’s Senk Conditioner & Hair Lotion, Senk Shampoo Bar, Shea Moisturizers & some Soap Bars.
