Coconut Butter (Cocos Nucifera) is one of the staple ingredients used in MuLondon organic skincare products. It melts and spreads easily, locks in moisture and provides protection and is suitable for sensitive skin types.
Coconut butter used in MuLondon products is certified organic, which means that it has been grown and extracted without any chemicals or solvents. As a certified organic ingredient, MuLondon coconut butter is pure and non-hydrogenated.
Coconut is an excellent skin moisturiser and softener. Because of its stability, it is slow to oxidize and is very resistant to rancidity. Coconut butter has a long history of safe topical use and no known or reported cases of contact dermatitis. It doubles as a moisturiser and antiseptic. (Vermén M. Verallo-Rowell, Kristine M. Dillague, Bertha S. Syah-Tjundawan, Skin and Cancer Foundation, Pasig, Philippines, and the VMV Skin Research Centre + Clinics, Makati City, Philippines)
Research has shown that long chain saturated fatty acids, which can be found in coconut oil, exert their benefits through effects on the skin barrier, partially through improved repair, and on permeability.
