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.

I am a newbie at lotion malling and really appreciate the information provided by Lotioncrafters. I purchased Lotion Making 101 and Jenny was kind enough to make sure I got the ebook without having to use my ancient desktop. I highly recommend the book. It makes the process and ingredient possibilities very clear. And the quick shipping is fabulous. Again, thank you.
