Coconut: unveiling the secret of Mauritian women!

On the skin, Mauritians use the white flesh of the coconut.
Freshly grated, the pulp is rubbed into the skin to exfoliate and moisturize. Reduced In Water, It offers a cosmetic and edible butter. Dried in the sun, it releases an oil. Filtered, it is applied to the skin and hair to nourish them.
The pulp is made up of water and lipids (30-40%) and its derivatives also contain minerals (Potassium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Copper and Zinc), which are essential for the protection and functioning of cellular life.

Ritual

Take a whole coconut and rub it all over your body. The peel should brush the skin, not rub it. This gesture gently starts the removal of impurities and gently stimulates blood activity.
Then with the flesh of 1 coconut previously grated and mixed with 1/2 glass of coconut milk, rub your skin with the exfoliating mixture always from bottom to top. Once rinsed, apply coconut oil on your skin.
This deliciously perfumed care, the coconut fragrances invite to the exoticism and allow the spirit to travel without moving from home.
