To say Kiana loves coconuts would be an understatement. The Kopari co-founder practically grew up on the stuff while being raised on the beaches of Honolulu, Hawaii and spending summers living on a catamaran in Kauai with her Hawaiian surfing legend dad. While most kids spent school breaks at summer camp, Kiana used her spare time collecting wild coconuts from the jungle and using their contents to whip up amateur beauty concoctions. She realized early on that the natives of her tropical locale owed their gorgeous skin and hair to their stripped-down, simplified beauty routines—most of which included a whole lot of coconut oil.
It's a skin win.
Coconut oil makes skin everything you want it to be—glowy, healthy, hydrated, young, supple and smooth. That’s because it’s made mostly of fatty acids. Diving deeper into the specific fatties, you’ll find Lauric, Capric and Caprylic acids. These are good fats that help keep skin hydrated and super soft. And we can’t forget about vitamin E, which is loaded with antioxidants to keep skin ageless and protect against dryness. Yes, please.
Aloha, healthy hair.
Coconut oil makes hair healthy, strong, glossy, and even moisturizes the scalp. Hair is made of long amino acids chains containing about 91 percent protein. Coconut is full of restorative proteins and vitamin E and helps increase body and shine of your hair. And a shout out to hair-loving Lauric and Capric acids which allow the oil to easily penetrate the hair shaft and reach the cuticle to moisturize from the inside out. Coconut oil + hair = love affair.
