Cocofina 

Coconut experts Cocofina produce a handy travel-size 10ml single serve sachet of their organic, cold-pressed, virgin coconut oil. This Guild of Fine Food Great Taste Award winning oil which is sustainably processed is a healthy, medium chain fatty acid (MCFA). MCFA’s are easily digested, absorbed and utilised by the body in many different ways. Virgin (unrefined) coconut oil such as this is multi-purpose, affordable and 100% natural. Use as a must-have product in your daily beauty regime or incorporate it into your healthy diet and lifestyle, Cocofina’s handy little sachet of oil really does have a myriad of beneficial uses.

Rolling the sachet in the palm of the hand heats the oil which then becomes liquid and pourable. The oil sachet contains the ideal quantity for oil pulling to clear unwanted bacteria from the mouth and helps to maintain hygiene, due to its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It can be used as a make-up remover and natural moisturiser for the skin and can also help to reduce the signs of ageing. Nature’s ideal deep treatment conditioner for the hair can also be combined with salt to create an effective body scrub. Use as an eye cream to reduce the look of tiredness and the appearance of fine lines, or as a lip balm, face wash, cleanser, massage oil, sunscreen (SP4 equivalent) or after sun cream to help soothe burnt skin. New mothers are also finding this to be the perfect nappy rash cream and being rich in Lauric Acid, helps to increase Monolaurin production in breast milk which in turn can strengthen a baby’s immune system.

Cocofina founder and coconut expert Jacob Thundil states that “over the last 10 years we have witnessed a huge increase in interest for coconut oil but travelling with it has always been a challenge. We are pleased as a pioneering brand, to bring this more user friendly innovation to health and beauty conscious consumers”. Creating a small sachet now means it is easier to take it with you when you are on the move and the use of proprietary technology keeps the oil fresher for longer with each sachet containing nitrogen to stop the oil from oxidising.

Price: 79p per sachet

Cocofina 10ml sachets are available at Holland & Barrett, Wholefoods, Revital, As Nature Intended and online at www.cocofina.com

Incognito Natural Crystal Deodorant 

If you’re using a mosquito repellent on your holiday, the last thing you want to be doing is using a perfumed deodorant, which will effectively counteract the effects of your insect spray. So leading anti-mosquito company incognito has extended its range by introducing a specially designed luxury deodorant that's also Vegan Society approved.

incognito’s new natural crystal deodorant means holidaymakers travelling to tropical areas can still smell fresh and clean without attracting the unwanted attention of mosquitoes and other pesky biting and stinging insects. This is the first time ever a crystal deodorant has been able to contain anything other than alum. It also has anti-bacterial properties as well as repellent ones. Insects such as mosquitoes are attracted to their hosts by kairomones, as well as the smell of some chemicals and perfumes in scented deodorants. Kairomones are emitted by the body in proportion to the rate of metabolism – so the more active you are, the more attractive a meal you are – and many can be detected by a female mosquito up to one kilometre away! Ned Walker, professor in the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Michigan State University, states that the floral scents given off by deodorants and perfumes also attract some species of mosquitoes to the skin. [1] This is where incognito can help. incognito offers a range of anti-mosquito products that are made entirely from natural products, including a repellent spray, lemongrass long-burning incense sticks, citronella soap and Zap-Ease, which stops itching and swelling from bites. Used in conjunction with these products, the new citronella deodorant, which contains no aluminium salts or chemicals and is non-sticky with a fresh citrus fragrance, will significantly reduce the chances of being bitten. It is also suitable for use by the whole family. This deodorant and all the products in the incognito range provide a greener, more effective insect repellent option which is DEET-free. The spray is stronger than any DEET insect repellent. incognito repels insects anywhere in the world, including all mosquitoes, as well as ticks, sandflies, wasps, fleas, bees, midges and gnats. incognito Natural Crystal Deodorant retails at £4.19 and is available from Waitrose, Holland & Barrett, Ocado, John Bell & Croyden, Planet Organic, Whole Foods, Trailfinders Travel Clinics, health stores and stocked in most branches of The Co-operative Pharmacy and nearly all pharmacies, as well as on-line at www.lessmosquito.com.
