While you are doing your Christmas shopping, be sure to check out the 100% natural coconut products of Carlos Morlett's MuchoCoco.
"When it happened, something shook loose in my brain," says Morlett, claiming that the incident made him a little loco (Spanish for "crazy") for coconuts! But really, Morlett was no stranger to coconuts. As a child vacationing in the tropics, he watched the locals cook with coconut oil, use the fruit's skin as a natural moisturizer and sun block, and fashion the wood - from what they called the "Tree of Life" - into homes. This time, though, Morlett was inspired to maximize the benefits of this natural ingredient and share it with others.
Today, natural product-lovers around the world have joined Morlett in their loco-ness for coconuts! They enjoy the benefits of coconut oil to moisturize dry skin, calm irritated areas and amplify one's natural beauty. With over 300 ways to use coconuts for a healthy lifestyle, Morlett's brings his own tried-and-true methods to create a must-have line of 100% natural, coconut body products.
100% Natural Coconut Products
"We use only the purest ingredients sourced directly from clean lands where they are naturally grown, processed and packed with the utmost care," says Morlett. "This process allows us to guarantee the freshness, quality and effectiveness of all of our coconut skin care products."
The MuchoCoco product line includes pure coconut oil (in solid and liquid form) and bougainvillea infused coconut oil. MuchoCoco products can also be found in spas, hotels and resorts, and specialty boutiques throughout Mexico.
