the conscious coconut mission
Conscious Coconut is a social enterprise fueled by love. We are committed to giving everyone the tools to live their healthiest, happiest lives. At Conscious Coconut, we work directly with our farmers in the southern Philippines to our packaging factories in China, supporting fair trade practices every step of the way. Conscious Coconut tubes are then packaged by adults with mental and developmental disabilities at the MacDonald Training Center located in Tampa, Florida. We are dedicated to empowering people with disabilities to lead the lives they choose. We also love kids (a lot) and are committed to raising awareness for childhood hunger in the States. For every product sold, we donate a meal to a child in need through Feeding America food banks.
ESSENTIAL DRY Brush
Dry brushing is an essential (and energizing!) in your skincare routine! Exfoliate & rejuvenate skin 100% naturally.
How to Dry Brush
We recommend dry brushing in the morning. Before dry brushing, apply Conscious Coconut Oil from head to toe. If you're at home, your CoCo tube will have you covered. If you're traveling or on-the-go, one individual packet from your 'Mindful Mini Pouch' will do the trick! Using Conscious Coconut Oil not only helps to diminish the appearance of cellulite, but also helps to keep your skin moisturized and radiant
Using your Conscious Coconut Dry Brush, start at your feet and brush upward towards the heart. The chest area is where the lymph system drains so be sure to brush gently here and try to avoid other sensitive areas of the skin such as your face and neck.
When you start on your arms, begin at the hands and work upward. Use firm, small upward strokes or work in a circular motion. For the stomach, work in a clockwise pattern to mimic the direction of digestion. Harsh exfoliation is never the point; be sure not to press too hard.
Dedicate at least three to five minutes to brushing, adding time as your skin adapts if you'd like. Showering after dry brushing will help to rinse away dead skin cells and impurities, while also allowing your pores to release toxins. After you shower, reapply Conscious Coconut Oil from head to toe to lock in moisture and feed your skin essential vitamins and nutrients. Repeat the process 2-3 times each week and your skin will be glowing in no time!

Why Coconut oil?
Coconut oil is loaded with healthy fats, lauric acid, and vitamin E, which together pack a punch in delivering nutrients to the body, aiding in skin treatment, and as a nourishing moisturizer for all skin types. Coconut oil is a versatile tool for optimum health, wellness, and beauty. In a (coco) nutshell, CoCo is a great multi-tasker because of its medium-chain triglycerides and vitamin E which have antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inﬂammatory properties.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are the healthy fats that make up the oil component of a coconut. MCTs are the most easily digested fat, making them readily available for energy use and quick absorption. Your daily dose of CoCo will have you looking and feeling your best.
Lauric acid, one of coconut oil's ﬁnest assets, is considered a highly effective MCT. As an MCT, lauric acid is easily absorbed by the body and is loaded with health beneﬁts. Its antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inﬂammatory properties help to heal and promote total body health - inside and out!
Coconut oil's companion vitamin E is packed with powerful antioxidant properties that act as a barrier between your skin and oxidation from the environment. Exposure to oxidation (which is unavoidable and happens every day) is one of the core causes for aging skin. Using coconut oil can help keep skin protected, soft, youthful, and glowing.
childhood hunger & feeding america
There are nearly 16 million children in the States that go hungry every day — a fact unfortunately invisible to most. Poor nutrition causes nearly half of deaths in children under five. The magnitude of our hunger problem is undoubtedly huge. Too huge. Food insecurity is most common in large cities yet also exists in rural areas and suburbs. Our goal is to distribute meals in the city where the purchase was made. The only way to make an impact is to make it loving and personal.Feeding America is the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the country, consisting of a network of more than 200 food banks. More than 21 million children receive free or reduced-priced meals through the National School Lunch Program during the school year. We love and support their BackPack Program, which helps kids eat on the weekends. Bags of food are distributed to more than 450,000 children at the end of each week. We need to ensure our future leaders, innovators, and creatives are getting the proper nutrition for their bellies and brains to grow throughout the most vital years of their lives, protecting them from the mental and physical stunting that can result from malnutrition.Join our Coconut Family and help us eliminate childhood hunger right here in the States.
