Why These Different Ingredients for Cocave Body Products?

Many people ask "Why in the world would you even consider using some of these ingredients in your Cocave Body Products?" When we first started off on this idea everyone thought we were crazy... until we did it! Now everyone's wondering why we didn't think of it sooner!

Did you know that your skin is the body's largest organ? Did you know that what you put onto your skin gets directly absorbed into your body? If you wouldn't or couldn't eat the ingredients in your skin products, that probably means they aren't good for you. Here are some of the reasons behind the Cocave Body Products:


Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil as a skin enhancer is nothing new, but we'll take a quick moment to point out why it is so important in our Cocave Body Products. Cold Pressed Organic Coconut Oil found in Cocave Body Products:

  • Provides anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties.
  • Replenishes and Rejuvenates the skin and hair.
  • Supports the Immune System.
  • Functions as an anti-oxident.
  • Supports healthy metabolic functions, promoting natural weight loss.
  • Is a medium chain fatty acid which is quickly absorbed, metabolized and converted into energy.
  • Promotes healthy skin and hair.

Studies have shown that applying coconut oil into the scalp restores proteins, fats, and other vital nutrients found naturally in the hair follicle. Massaging coconut oil into the scalp also helps stimulate the blood flow by encouraging circulation, thereby further promoting hair-growth and sustaining the management of healthy locks. Cocave, blended with other powerful ingredients, creates even greater health benefits and further invigoration.

Cocave Shampoo Thickens, Penetrates and Protects

Cocave Shampoo moisturizes and penetrates even the deepest hollow shafts of hair, adding body and fullness while also reducing fiber swelling which protects hair from damage.

Cocave Shampoo and Conditioner Promote Scalp Health and Prevent Dandruff

Cocave has antibacterial properties that help protect the scalp against infections that result in itching, dandruff, and weak or dry hair. This oil also protects hair follicles and strengthens hair against breakage and from falling out. It also contains the vitamins E and K which help to nourish and strengthen as well as boost the health and shine of hair. Massaging these products into the scalp will stimulate blood circulation and make it easier for hair follicles to absorb nutrients.

Cocave also helps moisturize and prevent dry skin build-up.

Cocave Shampoo and Conditioner Prevent Protein Loss and Boosts Shine

Cocave helps assists hair that is weak or damaged to retain proteins as well as seal in moisture. This shampoo and conditioner also helps to make hair more strong and silky smooth to the touch.

Coconut Water

Not only is Coconut Water a refreshing drink, but it's packed with electrolytes and minerals to replenish hydration levels within the body.
Research shows Coconut Water:

  • Contains cytokinins (e.g., kinetin and trans-zeatin) which show significant anti-ageing, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-thrombotic effects.
  • Is a great replacement for intravenous therapy. In WWII coconut water was used to replace plasma in wounded British and Japanese soldiers.
  • Is rich in amino acids and contains low amounts of sodium and chlorides.
  • Is composed of many naturally occurring bioactive enzymes such as acid phosphatase, catalase, dehydrogenase, diastase, peroxidase, RNA-polymerases etc. In effect, these enzymes help in the digestion and metabolism.
  • Despite very light consistency, coconut water has much better composition of minerals like calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, and zinc than some of the fruits like oranges.
  • Its water is also a very good source of B-complex vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pyridoxine, and folates. These vitamins are essential in the sense that the human body requires them from external sources to replenish.
  • Further, fresh coconut water has a small amount of vitamin-C (Ascorbic acid); It provides about 2.4 mg or 4% of RDA. Vitamin C is a water-soluble ant-oxidant.

Agave Nectar

This is one of the most ingenious ways we've found to use our Agave Nectar! Everyone knows it's a great sweetener, but did you know in Meso America, people used every bit of the agave plant for making rope, drinks, bowls and even a healing salve similar to aloe?

Mexican Vanilla

Many people use vanilla extract in recipes as a flavoring agent, but what they don't know is that vanilla bean and vanilla extract is an excellent anti-inflammatory agent. Being a sedative, it also reduces inflammation due to disease, and can also help to reduce fever. Additionally, studies suggest that the anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties of both vanilla bean and vanilla extract may act as inhibitors to cancer cells; this is due to the strong antioxidant, antibacterial, and even tumor-fighting properties provided by this flavorful bean. Vanilla also contains many B-vitamins such as niacin, panthothenic acid, thiamin, and riboflavin along with minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese, iron, and zinc.

Interestingly enough, each Cocave lotion, shampoo and conditioner blend contains Mexican Vanilla.

Did you know?

Both men and women find the scent of specific foods sensually attractive, according to research studies done by Chicago neurologist Alan Hirsch Ph.D. The scent of cinnamon buns, chocolate, and vanilla got the top scores for most alluring scents.

Mexican Vanilla reduces anxiety and stress. Studies have shown that vanilla extract has a positive benefit on people who are dealing with stress and anxiety. The scent helps with this. Since stress and anxiety cause so many different health problems, the use of vanilla extract to reduce anxiety and stress can be correlated with a variety of other health benefits as well.

Mexican Vanilla helps with nausea. A benefit of Mexican vanilla extract is that it can be used to help calm the stomach when you are feeling nauseous. You simply add a few drops of the extract to a glass of water and sip slowly on it. The combination of the scent and the slow sipping of the extract should help to reduce the feeling of nausea. Not everyone keeps nausea medicine in their homes but most people have vanilla extract so this is a great benefit to be aware of!
