Coconut Endosperm

Coconut Endosperm is coconut water, the liquid endosperm of green coconuts (Cocos nucifera).  It has been freeze dried to a free-flowing powder form using a patented lyophilization process which produces a stable composition retaining the inherent biological activity of its nutrients and growth factors.

Coconut Endosperm is not to be confused with coconut milk, the latter being harvested from the flesh of fully developed coconuts. Coconut Endosperm is the liquid reservoir of nutrients that nourishes the young coconut for a year of more of its life, delivering vital nutrients for sustained development of the solid endosperm (coconut meat) found inside the fruit. Rich in proteins, amino acids, sugars, vitamins, minerals and growth factors, it plays a pivotal role in supporting tissue growth.

RNA plays an important role in amino acid transport and respiratory metabolism in living cells. RNA-phosphorus (RNA-P) content is found to particularly high in young, green coconuts and Coconut Endosperm is harvested at an optimal stage of maturity to ensure a high content of RNA and growth factors, including shikimic acid, quinic acid and indole-3-acetic acid.

Since coconut water solids can support cell growth, coconut water may be used in products to support the growth of human tissues such as hair follicles, as validated in preclinical trials. Coconut water can therefore be used in revitalizing preparations for the care of skin, hair and nails. 100 g of Coconut Endosperm provides 324 mg of Calcium, 3050 mg of potassium, 206 mg of Magnesium, 4.3 mg of iron, 6.4 mg of vitamin C, and about 4.6 g of protein, in addition to natural sugars and fatty acids.

Coconut Endosperm easily disperses in water, blending seamlessly with cosmetic formulations, making it a versatile nutrient pool for use in topical formulations. Given its GRAS status, Coconut Endosperm can be used in lip care products to support hydration and tissue health.

Our Customers Say...
I have to admit, the products are well packaged, but the adorableness of the little containers makes me go, "awwww," when I start to formulate.

All cute aside, I love LotionCrafter. I can get products here I have a hard time sourcing at rates I'm willing to pay. I don't want to buy huge amounts of anything when I'm making initial formulations. I want to use small amounts to decide if something should be in my line. I can go small, or huge and that makes me feel confident that I can source what I need in amounts I can purchase.

I can get silicones here I can't find anywhere else and I've made my own primer that's head and shoulders above anything else I've ever purchased for any amount of money.

I am in love and I have large orders planned over the next few months. Thank you.
Nancy Liedel, (Makeup by Nancy)

Excellent service, excellent pricing. Placed an order for 21 items and its on the doorstep in Australia in 5 business days. I do custom formulations and by buying on the Lotioncrafter website i saved a lot of time and money.

Items all arrived on time and very well packaged. It looks like Lotioncrafter took the time to wrap and label each item carefully, legibly and to protect from moisture and light. They even returned part of my shipping cost to just cover the actual incurred shipping cost. Nice and honest seller. Will definitely return to shop for some more stuff. Thank you!

Lotioncrafter, you are THE MOST PROFESSIONAL, serious, and dependable company I have ever encountered! Your information is correct, scientific, and to the point. You deliver quickly and reliably.
I have ordered too many times from you - only because for me, it has been a learning curve as I research all the actives to slow aging and improve skin!

Thank you!
