Coconut oil (virgin)
Botanical name: Cocos nucifera
Coconut oil has powerful emollient effects, which means it softens and smoothes the skin beautifully. Very nourishing, coconut oil significantly reduces the dehydration of the skin.
This wunderkind of vegetable oils is also antibacterial, which is particularly effective in a natural deodorant: it both neutralizes the smell of bacteria (the cause of good ol’ body odour), and extends the shelf life of skincare products because of its stability.
