It’s no secret that coconut water is the trending rehydration drink of health conscious consumers, not to mention current “superfood” according to recent Channel 4 programme, yet it doesn’t stop there. Coconut water is now also the ultimate for providing a natural, cool and refreshing feel to skin. 

The health craze has now crossed over into skincare with several companies already incorporating coconut water into their products in order to add natural hydration to skin, make-up and hair care products.

Here are a few of our favourite products that can currently be found on the market:
