Coconut - cosmetics
Oil made from coconuts has been used extensively as a hair tonic and in hair styling. It is also been added to bath water, for body massage and to make soap.
Coconut oil is added to body lotions with sugar as an exfoliater to remove dead skin cells and to moisturise the skin.
When used traditionally as a shampoo, coconut oil was boiled with lemon to remove the coconut smell and then mixed with jasmine water.
