Coconut water is tropical paradise for the skin. This preferred drink of the tropics is often drank straight from the fruit and accompanied by a mini umbrella. Not only is coconut water the new craze that fitness enthusiasts use as their "go to” drink for rehydration, but coconut water is ideal for skincare to cool and refresh the skin. This latest health craze has crossed over into skin care in a big way. Its high nutrient, mineral and moisture content make it perfect to rehydrate the skin. FSS Coconut Water PF can incorporate natural hydration into skin care for a refreshed look and feel.
This new "it” beverage has been dubbed Mother Nature’s tropical cocktail. Naturally hydrating, coconut water has a sweet, nutty taste. Coconut water is clear liquid from the fruit of the coconut palm, tapped from the coconut at a young age, while the fruit is still green. It contains easily digestible carbohydrates in the form of sugar and electrolytes, which is why it has seen interest as a healthier sports drink alternative. Sports drinks are popular within the recreational and fitness worlds, while most are just artificially flavored beverages. The attention has turned to coconut water, as a natural alternative to manufactured sports drinks with initial evidence indicating the ability to maintain hydration. As coconut water continues to have the reputation for being low in sugar and high in electrolyte minerals it is often used as an alternative to avoid sports drinks packed with added sugars and artificial colors. Electrolytes help maintain fluid levels within the body and are necessary to regulate muscle function.
The benefits don’t stop there. As mentioned, coconut water is full of essential amino acids while also containing enzymes, antioxidants and phytonutrients. Coconut water is also a natural source of cytokinins, which are plant hormones that have been known to provide anti-aging benefits. These hormones regulate growth, development and aging, as they influence the rate at which plants age. Cytokinins have been known to have an anti-aging effect on human tissues and cells. When added to the culture medium, the normal aging process slowed down. Due to these advances, cytokinins, have the reputation for being beneficial for anti-aging effects. This health craze has crossed over into skincare with several companies incorporating coconut water into their products in order to capitalize on this skyrocketing trend. Coconut water is one of the most rapidly growing trends, with demands likely to increase. FSS Coconut Water PF is a great way to utilize this "here to stay” trend while incorporating natural hydration into skin and hair care products.
