Coconut Oil, What is it?
The milky liquid that comes from pressing the freshly grated meat of ripe coconuts. Its farily high fat content makes it an exceptional skin moisturizer and softener. Where it comes from?

- Loaded with antioxidants
- Wonderfully moisturizing
- Smoothes and softens skin
Cocoa, What is it?
The bean or seed of the cocoa tree (Themobroma cacao). Although most widely loved for its yummy flavor and mood-boosting abilities, cocoa also contains vital nutrients that are wonderfully beneficial to skin. Where it comes from? Cocoa beans come from trees grown mainly in hot, rainy, equatorial regions of the world. A delicate crop, it grows largely in the shelter of larger trees and doesn't usually bear fruit until its fifth year.
Why it's good for you:
Rich in polyphenols, cocoa has remarkable anti-aging properties
Contains antioxidants that fight free radicals
Flavenoids help protect and maintain collagen levels
Shea Butter, What is it?
One of the world's richest moisturizers, shea butter is the natural fat extracted from the nut of the African Karite Tree. It is rich in protein and vitamins. Where it comes from? The Karite Tree, whose nuts produce shea butter, grows exclusively in West Africa. The extraction and production of shea butter is an important income source for many of the people in West Africa—so much so that it is sometimes referred to as "women's gold."
Why it's good for you:
- Deeply moisturizes even the driest skin
- Soothes and smoothes rough spots
