What is coconut oil?
Coconut oil is edible oil and that is extracted from the meat of coconuts. Interestingly, coconuts do not fall under nuts but rather drupes (single seed fruits).
Coconut and its derivatives have increased usage, from supplements to cooking and bathroom products. Many manufacturers have begun to use coconut oil in packaged products, and many people use it for cooking. Many products, such as fried foods, sweets, shampoos, coffee, and smoothies, contain coconut oil.
One of the first benefits of coconut oil is its nutritional benefits. Unlike other oils, coconut one has a type of fatty acid that is more easily digested and better stored by the body. Moreover, it is also considered that coconut oil contains anti-inflammatory components. It can also protect the hair from heat damage, but there need to be more sufficient studies carried out to prove this.
Some other benefits include:
- possibility of encouraging fat burning
- acts as a quick boost of energy
- possible help in hunger reduction
- possible boosting of skin health
- source of antioxidants
It is essential to mention that some might experience side effects of coconut oil, such as allergies. Therefore, it is advised that everyone tries this product in small doses first to see if an allergic reaction will begin.
In recent years, coconut-based products have seen a surge in sales. With the rise of a sustainable lifestyle, environmentally friendly products, and overall more conscious dietary habits; coconut products have naturally followed these trends.
Coconuts are a zero-waste material, considering their shell can be used fully. It is also a no-toxin product because there is no need to use any glue or chemicals when transforming a coconut shell into a usable bowl, for example. Coconuts can be used as a construction material, but they are also often used for homeware and kitchenware. This, along with their biodegradability, is what makes coconut the perfect sustainability material, and one of the most trending products now.
Coconut oil is extremely versatile in its use, therefore, you as a company should not restrict yourself to solely one product. At the very beginning of launching and including coconut oil in your line, it makes sense to not look into all of the possibilities immediately. however, later on you can expand the implementation of this oil in your products that cover various industries. It is up to you to decide how versatile you want your products and product lines to be.
