1. What does massage therapy do for me?
Massage therapy is an ancient form of treatment that has now been proven to help circulation, and tone the skin externally, but does much more in terms of relaxation, well-being, and reduced pain.
If you are expecting a little one, have mature skin, have dry or chapped skin, or want toned and supple skin, a regular massage really helps.
Studies have demonstrated that massage therapy has a significant effect on anxiety, stress and pain, improved sleep, and decrease in cortisol levels, especially during pregnancy, burn treatment, post-operative pain, eating disorders, and depression.
2. Why does my skin need Coconess Toning Oil?
Skin doesn’t just keep you in shape (literally); it is also the ultimate germ barrier, and the largest organ. But it can definitely do with some help. Adult skin needs nourishing fatty acids and anti-oxidant-rich extracts that can help skin remain supple and healthy.
Coconess is the ideal combination of nourishing medium-chian fatty acids, antioxidants and natural extracts that are known to promote healing and skin repair, while keeping bacterial and fungal infections at bay.
It is the ideal skin moisturizer that helps lock moisture in, and smoothes and tones better than any water-based lotion. Ideal for winter and summer dryness, itchy, chapped skin flaking skin and mature skin.
3. What is Coconess Toning Oil?
Coconess toning oil is inspired by an ancient Ayurvedic formulation that has a history of use for over 2000 years. Coconut milk is infused with Gotu kola (Bramhi), carrot-seed and helichrysum (immortelle) – extracts of nature that are known to nourish, soothe and tone cracked, chapped and dry skin.
Coconess has a lipid composition similar to that of human skin, and small molecular structure. It absorbs easily, does not clog pores, and is light and non-greasy.
We believe that everyone deserves the purest and best that nature can offer. This is why all our creations are 100% natural. They contains absolutely no mineral oil, petroleum products, parabens, artificial fragrances, or artificial colours.
4. What is virgin coconut oil?
Virgin coconut oil is made from coconut milk (and not the dry nut, or copra). It is made without the use of any heat, chemicals, solvents or enymes. It is therefore the purest form of coconut oil you can find.
Virgin coconut oil is nature’s richest source of a unique group of fats called medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs. It is also a wonderful natural source of Vitamin E, provitamin A and micronutrients. Since the 1950s, isolates from coconut oil have been administered to burn patients and critically ill patients, because it promotes wound healing, and helps reduce the appearance of scars. Other isolates have long been used to make anti-fungal creams for candida and athlete’s foot.
5. How do you make Coconess?
Ayurveda describes an elaborate process of preparing this special oil from the milk of the mature coconut, infused with specific herbs. We have adapted this preparation using modern scientific processes, while keeping the integrity and efficacy of the oil in place.
Coconut milk is extracted from carefully selected and mature coconuts. We then use a traditional ‘raw’ ‘cold-process’ method to extract virgin coconut oil. The cold-process does not require the use of chemicals, heat, solvents or enzymes.
We infuse our virgin coconut oil with the purest extracts of nature – healing carrot-seed and helichrysum (immortelle) extracts, Bramhi (Centella asiatica) and Bala (Sida rhombifolia) – that are carefully selected for their toning and healing properties.
