Description

Description

The coconut palm (Cocos nucifera) is thought to be native to the warm climates of Polynesia, Malaysia and southern Asia. One tree can yield up to two hundred coconuts. The trees bloom and bear fruit throughout the year, growing a new flower spike nearly every month. This then becomes a cluster of six to twelve nuts. The nuts are the largest seed known to the world, and can take up to a year to fully mature. When coconuts are young their flesh is soft like a melon. 'Kalpa vrishka,' the Sanskrit name for the coconut, means 'tree which gives all that is necessary for living.'

The coconut oil (or coconut butter, as it is also known) is extracted from the inner flesh of the coconut. It takes around 25 coconuts to produce 1kg of oil. Lush buys cruelty-free coconut oil only, meaning no animals are involved during the whole process, including harvests.

The extra virgin coconut oil is ethically sourced from the Indonesian island of Nias.
