What are the benefits of coconut milk powder?

- Coconuts are rich in vitamins and minerals.
- As a powder, it helps create dry and solid Lush products.
The coconut palm (Cocos nucifera) is thought to be native to the warm climates of Polynesia, Malaysia and southern Asia. The trees bloom and bear fruit throughout the year, growing a new flower spike nearly every month. This then becomes a cluster of six to twelve fruits. Coconuts are the seeds of these fruits, the largest seed known to the world!
To make coconut milk powder, the white, edible flesh inside the seeds is grated and mixed with water. It is then squeezed, filtered and spray dried - a method that transforms juices and milk into powders.
