Jax Coco, the award-winning global coconut lifestyle brand is holding an exclusive Coconut Oil Workshop event on Wednesday 15th July at Whole Foods Market, Kensington from 7 – 9pm. Head down to learn the best ways to utilise coconut oil (the A-list favourite), from beauty treatments, summer skin protection and hydration and healthy recipes.
The team has put together a panel of experts to explain the best uses for coconut oil including Nutritional TherapistGabriella Peacock, Liz Earle’s Global Treatment Ambassador Abigail James and Health & Wellness Expert Julie Montagu.
Jax Coco’s Extra Virgin Centrifuged Coconut Oil (EVCCO) is the purest organic coconut oil in the world. A super-premium wonder product, Jax Coco EVCCO (RRP £13.99) is nutrient rich with a subtle coconut aroma and balanced flavour, suitable for a myriad of luxury and everyday lifestyle uses, from kitchen to bathroom: morning, noon to night.
The award-winning, global brand has innovation at its core, with an extensive range of products that pair the finest coconuts, sourced exclusively from the Jax Coco plantation in the Philippines with an iconic, modern aesthetic designed by Alasdhair Willis, husband of Stella McCartney.
Jax Coco EVCCO uses the freshest, young coconuts and is 100% USDA Organic and Fairtrade certified. It has the industry’s lowest zero peroxide levels, traces of which are found in many other coconut oils, and less than 0.05% free fatty acids.
Harvested at just 11 months, the coconuts retain the maximum level of anti-viral lauric acid, medium-chain triglycerides and are rich in antioxidants, which can help to maintain a healthy and balanced diet.
Jax Coco is the only coconut brand to own a plantation, meaning complete control of their supply chain with sustainability and responsible sourcing central to the brand’s values. All coconuts are traceable to the individual organic farm and transported to the factory within two days of harvest.
After extracting the raw and unrefined coconut milk, the oil is created using one of the most advanced and efficient triple centrifuge systems in the world, produced in less than two hours after the coconut has been de-husked.
This unique process, distinct from any other production including cold-pressing, separates the pure coconut oil from the water components, before a final triple micro-filtering process. It ensures the coconuts are never exposed to high temperatures and maximum nutrient content is retained, making it the purest quality product on the market.
A Versatile Store Cupboard Essential
Jax Coco EVCCO contains zero trans-fat and cholesterol making it suitable for raw, gluten free, vegetarian and vegan diets. Heat can destroy the beneficial fats in other oils but Jax Coco EVCCO contains a high level of healthy, saturated fat, which doesn’t break down at high temperatures, making it a healthy alternative when baking or cooking. In its solid form, Jax Coco EVCCO can be used as a natural spread, in shakes, smoothies and salad dressings.
A Beauty ‘Must Have’
Coconut oil is one of nature’s greatest natural moisturisers, and unlike other oils that sit on the skin’s surface, the coconut oil penetrates the skin to deeply nourish and hydrate. For sensitive skin, the cleansing properties of this organic coconut oil make it an ideal natural make-up remover leaving skin clean and healthy, without any harsh chemicals.
The high levels of lauric acid have anti-viral benefits: from dry lips and occasional scratches to burns and scars, the product has healing properties to calm and restore skin. For more luxurious body treatments, add Himalayan salt to create an instant scrub for glowing skin, or use as natural massage oil. And it’s not just for skin: Jax Coco EVCCO works wonders as a deep conditioning treatment for hair. Left overnight, a rinse in the morning will create shiny glossy tresses without any chemicals.
