As a beauty treatment, coconut cider vinegar can work wonders due to its antimicrobial & antibacterial properties. By applying topically, you can treat skin issues such as acne or sunburn.
You can use it as a post cleansing toner. Simply mix one part vinegar with two parts distilled or filtered water & use as you would any other toner. You can make the mixture stronger or weaker depending on your skin type.
Coconut sap vinegar also makes an excellent hair rinse after using a natural shampoo bar. It helps nourish the hair & prevent hair loss. Mix half a cup of coconut cider vinegar with half a cup of water. After shampooing pour the mixture over your hair. Leave it for a couple of
minutes & then rinse out.
Sap is extracted from the blossom of the coconut tree & is then fermented for 8 to 12 months, depending on environmental conditions. This fermentation process results in a delicious, smooth cider vinegar that is rich in amino acids, natural probiotics & is considered a ‘functional superfood’.
We bottle the cider vinegar exactly as it is.
Raw, unpasteurised, unfiltered & unheated.
This means that you get amazing health benefits in each bottle.
Because it is unfiltered you may notice some sediment on the bottom of the bottle, this is known as the mother. This sediment contains all the goodness & should not be removed from the bottle. You may also notice that over time, as the vinegar ages, it will change colour – this is completely normal.
