Coconut

Coconuts, the totally tropical fruit. It conjures up images of paradise, sunny weather and long sandy beaches. We drink their water and their milk and eat their flesh. The leaves are used to make matts and baskets and the fibrous husk is used to make brushes and stuffing for mattresses. To say it is a plant of many talents is an understatement. From healing scars, to gently moisturising your face, not to mention the fact you can cook with it, is there anything the modest coconut can’t do?

The coconut is a member of the drupe family, which includes peaches, cherries and plums, and is not actually a nut
The Maldives have the coconut palm on their national coat of arms
Coconut water contains high levels of sugars, proteins, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fibre and is often used as a sports drink to rehydrate
16th century Portuguese sailors thought the three small holes on the coconut shell resembled a human face, so they called it a ‘coco’ which means grinning face. The word nut was later added in English

Mud Masks

Mud within face masks acts as an emulsifier penetrating skin pore deep to absorb excess sebum and other impurities deep within pores. When you wash the mud mask off, you also wash away the dirt, grime, oil and dead skin. Mud also contains huge numbers of minerals which nourish your skin, leaving your face feeling fresh, clean and vibrant.
