Coconut (Cocos Nucifera)

Only real coconut, certified by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, goes into our Herbal Essences hydrating formulas.

The refreshing fruit from the Tropics.

Real Coconut

In lush and steamy tropics, the coconut fruit grows on palm trees. A water-packed and thirst-quenching fruit, the coconut holds the treasured ingredient of coconut milk.

At Herbal Essences, we work with our partners to select ripe coconuts, clean them, and chop them up to extract and bottle the milk from the fresh pulp. We only use coconut extract that is certified real by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, one of the world’s leading plant experts. Then, we blend it into the quenching formulas of our shampoo and conditioner tailor-made for beautifully hydrated hair.

Smooth. Silky. Luscious. Coconut milk evokes the senses for an enlivening shower. Inspired by sunny beaches, with a fruity fragrance, our formulas are soft and smooth, just like this coconut milk. Discover a tropical getaway in a bottle as you experience this hydrating formula.

Where does Coconut Milk come from?

The coconut is the fruit of the palm tree, also called the “Tree of Life” in some countries. The palm tree grows throughout the Tropics, and mostly in the Philippines and in Indonesia.

The meat of the coconut can be either dried or pressed to produce coconut oil and coconut milk. Coconut has so many uses that we couldn’t possibly list them all! But among the primary uses, coconut is known to revitalize your skin and hair with moisture and hydration.

What is Coconut Water and what is it good for?

Unlike coconut milk, which is extracted from coconut meat, coconut water occurs naturally within the fruit of a specific species of a palm tree and is also a source of beneficial ingredients for your hair and skin! Free of added ingredients, the clear liquid inside the coconut is rich in vitamin K and iron which makes it a natural source of that good stuff your hair needs to be healthy and beautiful.

Vitamin K is one of the main components our body needs to keep the hair healthy and strong. Your scalp and hair will love the added vitamin K and iron from coconut water.

Pamper your hair with the Herbal Essences Coconut Water and Jasmine Flower collection! Allow your natural, curly, frizzy, and dull hair types to benefit from the vitamins and nutrients provided by natural botanicals.
