What Is Coconut Extract?

Coconut oil and coconut extract are both derived from the coconut fruit, but from different parts. The oil is extracted from the kernel, while coconut extract (called Cocos Nucifera Extract) is taken from the coconut meat.

Coconut Extract Skin Benefits

Coconut eExtract offers many visible benefits for skin, but it all starts with its impact on the skin barrier.

Also called stratum corneum, the skin barrier is the outermost layer of skin made up of protein, lipids, and fats. When skin is perfectly healthy and balanced, the barrier, although delicate and fragile, keeps water (hydration) in, while protecting skin from external environmental aggressors, such as harmful bacteria.

Factors like age, dry air, and pollution are inevitable, but habits like using harsh skincare products or overexfoliating can severely compromise skin barrier function. When it’s disrupted, it manifests as dryness, tightness, or the appearance of redness, all things that also contribute to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dullness.

Thanks to its highly absorbent and moisturizing properties, Coconut Extract can help to improve the skin’s ability to hold water by strengthening the skin barrier over time. This reduced water loss results in younger-looking skin that feels soft and appears plump and luminous!
