The Coconut tree (Cocos nucifera), is native to the warm climates of Malaysia, Polynesia and South Asia. The tree is known as the 'Tree of Life' and it really does bring life to our skin!
One tree can yield up to 200 coconuts, all 200 are packed with minerals and vitamins which are not only nutritious but nourishing, soothing and cleansing for your skin.
Here at evolve we have harnessed all of the goodness of the coconut by using 3 different parts as miraculous ingredients in our products:
ORGANIC COCONUT OILCoconut oil is extracted from the inner flesh of the coconut.
It has been used for centuries by Pacific Islanders for skincare but it has only recently become popular in western cultures for cooking and for its use in skincare, earning its reputation as ‘the darling of the natural foods world’.
Coconut oil has deep cleansing properties, making it an ideal skin cleanser and it also has antibacterial and antifungal properties, protecting the skin from pathogens and fungi, keeping it fresh and clean.
Coconut oil also contains Triglycerides which can penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate collagen repair, making it a great anti ageing ingredient.

What makes this ingredient even more important to us is the fact that it is completely natural and biodegradable making it the perfect alternative to environmentally damaging plastic particles.

The most mysterious ingredient we use from the coconut is coconut peptides!
These coconut derived miniscule miracle workers have amazing moisturising and smoothing skincare properties, which help to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
They help to firm the skin's tissues by stimulating the contraction of collagen fibres and protecting them from breaking down. This also helps to protect the skin from free radicals.
There have been many studies carried out on volunteers and the results show that there is an average 32% reduction in the appearance of wrinkles.
After this ingredient was clinically tested on skin samples in the lab for 1 month the results produced some pretty amazing results:
+ 26% of pro-collagen 1 stimulation
+ 14% collagen fibres contraction
+ 81% protection of elastic fibres
+ 85% inhibition of free radicals
+ 46% stimulation of fibroblasts
+ 94% MMP inhibition
