What is coconut oil?
Coconut oil, or copra oil, is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). Coconut oil specifically contains a lot of medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs). Those MCFAs carry a variety of health benefits and that is why it makes the perfect ingredient in our shampoos and conditioners.
Why we use coconut oil in our shampoos & conditioners?
Improves your pet’s skin
Why does coconut oil for skin work so well? In part, it’s due to the saturated fats that helps the skin stay moisturized, with the fat preventing moisture loss through the skin’s pores, leaving your pet’s skin feeling soft and smooth. Coconut oil also has great antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, which can help prevent and treat yeast and fungal infections, help with hot spots, dry itchy skin and reduce allergic reactions.
Maintains a healthy coat
Coconut oil is rich in anti-microbial properties, lauric acid, and medium-chain fatty acids that help strengthen hair. Coconut oil is also a natural conditioner and can help detangle your pet’s hair and leave his/her fur soft and bouncy.
