It has conditioning properties that are beneficial to skin and hair because it contains vitamins A, B, C, and E, is a natural anti-oxidant, and is nourishing.

Occasionally, you will find one of the coconut waters that are pink. “Our coconut water contains naturally-occuring variations in levels of antioxidants – such as phenols – that will, like in white wine, make it turn pink….Vitamin c aka ascorbic acid, sodium metabisulphites, and other hue suppressing chemicals are traditionally added to prevent this innocent discoloration….We know you know that the real world comes in all colors,” says Harmless Harvest.

Just a look at some of the certified organic active ingredients listed in their conditioner make me excited to try it: Olive Leaf Extract, Nettle Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Flower Extract, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, and Jojoba Seed Oil .
