When and how did Cocovit come about?
The tradition of using coconut oil originated in India over 5,000 years ago. Coconut oil has been a staple in my family for over 7 generations. Growing up I always knew that the oil I was using was not 100% raw, nor was it as pure or potent as it could be. Unfortunately not all coconut oils are created equal. Knowing this I began my search to develop a process which would allow the beneficial nutrients and enzymes to stay intact during the extraction process and in the final product. This is how Cocovít was born.
What makes Cocovit different than all of the other coconut products out there?
At Cocovít we harvest fresh organic coconuts from a eco-reserve in South India, producing an exquisitely pure and exceptionally potent form of coconut oil. Using a heatless extraction process, we are able to maximize nutrient and enzyme potency by leaving the oil raw & untouched – as nature intended. Cocovít is USDA Organic + Fair Trade Certified.
What are some of your favorite products for keeping our skin hydrated during this winter to spring transition?
Staying hydrated in the winter is extremely crucial. The brutal winds and the indoor heat can really create havoc on your skin and hair.
Why is coconut so great for our skin?
Cocovít Coconut Oil is an extremely powerful and effective facial and body moisturizer. It is anti-inflammatory, packed with antioxidants, anti-bacterial and hydrating, these properties combined make it truly beneficial for skin. Coconut oil is primarily composed of saturated fats (medium-chain triglycerides to be exact), which help repair the skin’s barrier and trap water, thus keeping the skin hydrated, as well as reducing inflammation. The oil also helps even skin tone and assist in reducing the appearance of pores and pre-mature aging.
Thank you for making a product that I can use that is natural and effective! I can’t live without these products now!!
