ORGANIC COCONUT MASSAGE OIL

100% PURE VIRGIN COCONUT OIL

There is no purer organic coconut oil, harvested in Mozambique from the milk of the fruit. Because it comes from the milk – and not the pulp like most coconut oils – Terre d’Afrique organic virgin coconut oil is not processed or pressed. It is simply lifted in its purest form from the surface of the coconut milk. Ready to melt into your skin with just a hint of its natural sweet coconut fragrance. Suitable for all skin types.

Terre d’Afrique deep-conditioning coconut oil is solid at room temperature but melts on contact with body heat. It’s easily absorbed into the skin, leaving it soft and smooth, with a slight natural sheen. Because it contains an abundance of medium chain triglycerides (natural fats), our organic coconut massage oil acts as both a deep penetrating moisturiser, as well as a protective barrier against environmental and free radical damage. It also offers a limited amount of natural protection from UV exposure.

Terre d’Afrique organic coconut massage oil is rich in powerful antioxydants like vitamin E, and naturally occurring antimicrobial and antibacterial acids (lauric, caprylic and capric acids). As a result, it infuses the skin with anti-aging antioxydants, leaving the body smooth and soothed.
