This article may use affiliate links. Eluxe Magazine only links to products we trust.

By Anna van der Heidjen

Coconuts have always been associated with beach holidays, but  today, they’re  being associated with health and beauty, too. And no wonder – with their natural antioxidant, hydrating, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, coconuts can do a lot of good for your body, both inside and out.

You can reap easily the beauty benefits of coconuts internally by  drinking loads of coconut water and adding a touch of coconut oil to your recipes. Some people are even adding a tablespoon of coconut oil to their morning coffee!

If you use pure coconut oil externally  on your skin and hair, it acts as a super-gentle hydrator, but it may stain your clothes and  feel a bit greasy. Sure, it’s the perfect all-purpose beauty product for vacations, and takes off makeup like a dream, but in the city you may need something a bit different.

Here, we’ve selected a few  Organic Coconut Based Beauty Products that use the power of coconuts to enhance your hair, skin, scent and even your breath. Let’s get  loco for coco!

For just about everything

The Conscious Coconut

Pure coconut oil just does it all: hydrates skin, conditions hair, removes makeup and more. The Conscious Coconut’s cold pressed virgin coconut oil is made from freshly harvested, organic certified coconuts no older than two days off the tree. It’s antibacterial, anti-fungal and can be used in cooking, in coffee or as a massage oil, amongst many, many other uses. On holiday, it’s practically all you need to pack!

Flores Concept

This vegan friendly brand was born in Bali. It uses not only the local coconuts from the island, but also the local concept of Tri Hita Karana – that is to say, acting individually to work in harmony with the rest of society and the planet we call home. In keeping with that philosophy, all their 100% cold pressed coconut oil products are free of toxic chemicals, and packaging is stripped back to the minimum.

Dr Jackson’s Coconut Melt

Just the name of this sounds amazing! This 100% cold pressed organic oil is literally good enough to eat. Slather it liberally on dry skin, tips of hair, use it as a makeup remover, and even stick a bit in your mouth once a week to swish your teeth into whiteness (melt it in your mouth, swirl it around for ten minutes, then spit it out. Voila!)

For energized  feet  

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream

After a long day of running around, your feet always need  a little pampering – and besides, it feels sooo good  to slip under the covers with clean, soft feet. Burt’s Bees is mostly known for its beeswax based beauty products, but the star ingredient in this foot cream is organic coconut  oil derived from fresh pressed coconuts to create a super hydrating, heel-healing cream. A hint  of peppermint and a dash of rosemary oil revive and refresh tired tootsies, too. My suggestion? Get your boyfriend to massage this in!

For a clean body

Calypso Glow Enriching Body Bar Coconut Water

Coconut water has a natural purifying ability, so after you jump into the shower with Calypso Glow’s Coconut Water Body Bar, you’ll feel really clean and refreshed.  The body bar is filled with coconut and olive oil, which will leave your skin nourished, soft and glowing. Calypso Glow brings the Caribbean Islands directly to you through their organic ingredients, which are all sustainably collected from exotic tropical islands.

For fresher skin

Rosemira Coconut Verbena Dead Sea Salt Scrub

Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and while it might look the same to you, your cells actually completely renew themselves around once a month. This is a good thing: newer cells look fresher and more radiant, and using an exfoliating scrub can help the cellular turnover process. Scrubbing also cleans the pores, helps get rid of grime  and advances blood circulation. This delicious scrub by Rosemira contains coconut, verbena and Dead Sea salt, and  helps make your skin as soft and fresh as a baby’s.

For softer skin

Dr Bronner’s Lavender Coconut Oil Body Cream

Don’t we all want more luminous skin? Coconut oil can help that. It has incredible hydrating powers: it captures your body’s moisture, penetrates deeply into the skin and provides essential nutrients. Its soothing effects  can even help with eczema and psoriasis!  Dr Bronner’s  has made a wonderful smelling body cream  harnessing the powers of  organic cold pressed virgin coconut oil, and added organic hemp and avocado oils,  all heavenly scented with gorgeous lavender.

For clean hair

Organic Doctor’s Virgin Coconut Oil Shampoo

Coconut is said to make hair shinier, healthier, cleaner and less frizzy. What’s not to love, right? Organic Doctor believes in capturing the potency of nature’s ingredients to benefit human health and beauty, and this shampoo encapsulates that philosophy perfectly with its citrusy scent, dashed with a whiff of coconut. Of course, Organic Doctor’s products are all free from nasty ingredients like  parabens, artificial colours and fragrances, meaning you can wash your hair without worrying about rinsing harsh chemicals down the drain.

For softer hair

Natural World Hydration and Shine Conditioner

The molecular weight of coconut oil is low and it has affinity for proteins, which makes it able to really  penetrate and feed the hair shaft, keeping it strong and nourished. London’s Natural World conditioner is based on hair-nurturing coconut water, accompanied by oils of Cedarwood, Rosemary, Lemongrass, Orange and Ylang Ylang. Together these ingredients create a tropical fruit cocktail to leave  your hair soft, bouncy and shiny.

For  a great complexion

E-ra Organics Complete  Facial Cream

Coconut isn’t just an incredible product to use for glowing, hydrated skin; it also has natural anti-aging properties. E-ra Organics Complete Facial Cream  you will give your face nothing but goodness. It is filled with essential oils, Manuka honey, anti-inflammatory MSM, amino acids and natural oils, one of them being coconut. Opening the  pot releases a subtle honey/coconut smell, which disappears soon after you put the cream on your face – but don’t limit yourself to your complexion; this cream is perfect for your body, too!

For a lovely scent

Honore des Pres – Love Coco

The sense of smell is powerful – it can dictate or enhance our mood. Every situation asks for a different kind of scent: something rich for a night out, fresh for a day at the office and flowery for a Sunday brunch, or Love Coco by Honore des Pres for a tropical beach holiday. This is a woody and fruity scent with just a hint of coconut. It’s an all natural fragrance that’s perfect for reviving  that blissful summer  feeling, any time.

For fresher breath

The Dirt Oil Pulling Mouthwash

Oil pulling – or the act of swishing coconut oil around in the mouth has been done for centuries, and with good reason. Coconut oil has anti-bacterial properties that can help prevent – and even reverse – cavities! Oh, and regular mouthwash is full of chemicals that can be extremely harsh on your gums and tooth enamel. But never fear:  The Dirt is here to save your mouth with some luxurious herb-infused Oil Pulling Mouthwash. Swish with this heady elixir and you’ll never want to see  regular mouthwash again!

For luscious lips

Hurraw Coconut Lip Balm

Fresh, creamy, coconuts taste so delicious, maybe the best place to put their oil is right on our lips! Hurraw’s  all natural organic coconut balms  are the truest coconut flavour we’ve found – though they’re not meant to be eaten, it’s tempting! These are also super hydrating too, of course. No wonder this balm continues to make it to the top of beauty bloggers’ ‘favourites’ lists year after year.

We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally.

We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.
