What is coconut oil?

Coconut oil is the common title given to the extracted oil of the coconut palm fruit, commonly found in tropical areas of the globe. The oil is a solid white fat extracted from inside part of the brown coconut. In colder temperatures, it solidifies into a white thick consistency, and on warmer parts of the world, it melts into a yellowy transparent liquid.

It´s used in different cultures, especially in tropical countries where the tree is most found, and serves multiple purposes. The oil is edible and can be used for cooking, for the health and shine of hair, and to hydrate the skin. Coconut oil is a rich source of medium-chain triglycerides, a type of saturated fat. The use of coconut oil can encourage fat burning, as it’s an oil safe for cooking at high temperatures, and works as a quick source of energy for your body.

What can it be used for

Coconut oil has multiple uses across the world and recently has become an essential step of everyone’s skincare and haircare routine.


Differently than other hair oils, that are too bulky to be absorbed by the cuticles of the hair, coconut oil has a lean and straight structure, that can be easily absorbed by the hair, instead of just protecting it from the outside. It should be applied to hair a few hours before washing – a technique used for thousands of years by asian cultures – can help the hair retain natural protein after the process of washing, drying, and styling. The oil will help keep the moisture and structure of the hair, while protecting it from pollution and sun damage.


It’s also a great moisturizer and can be used to treat flaky and dry skin. The use is linked to potential benefits for the skin, such as reducing inflammation, keeping the skin moisturized, and speeding the healing of the wounds. The fatty acids in the coconut oil also possess antimicrobial properties that can help treat the redness of acne and protect the skin from bacteria

What is the best kind of production for you?

Private label

A private label corresponds to a manufacturer who creates customized products for third parties to sell under their brand. In other words, the manufacturer gives you the freedom to choose the formula, customization, or design of the product they manufacture for your brand. This personalized product will then be sold exclusively by this one retailer/re-seller who ordered the product. You get ease in the production while being able to do small customizations in your packaging and formula.

Private label production is the best of both worlds. You get the ease of producing a “generic” product, with the option to make customizations and to make your product unique. In other words, the machinery for the production is already set, making it easier and faster to produce, and giving also lower minimum order quantities, while giving you the opportunity to personalize some aspects of the product.

White label

White-label production is the cheapest kind of production, but also the easiest. In this process, all the necessary machinery is already set for production, and no customizations need to be made, making it so that the production is a lot faster than a private label or contract manufacturing. If you are a beginner and don’t have a huge budget, search into white-labeling production for generic packaging that is only missing the branding. Private labels and white labels can be similar but there key differences between them.
