There are a few things, if there’s any at all, that beat the soothing and gentle care that nature-based products bring. Not only are they beneficial for the body but for the environment as well.
One of the most popular natural beauty products is coconut oil. For centuries, coconut oil has been the beauty and skin secret—a true jewel of nature—used by Asians with its proven benefits and nourishing qualities. In recent years, the West has also discovered the outstanding benefits it brings: as a restorative, healing, and anti-inflammatory oil.
Coconut oil has many uses, too. It can be used as a hair conditioner, a face cleanser, a body scrub, a detox bath, and an over-all moisturizer that can penetrate the skin better than synthetic products.
At a spa in Coron, Palawan, 100 percent natural coconut oil is used in many of its treatment services.
The Glow Spa of Club Paradise Palawan, an oasis of serenity in a tropical island, guests can enjoy natural pampering while protecting the environment as only 100 percent natural coconut oil is used in its rejuvenating treatment selections, instead of synthetic scented oils that can harm the environment or even irritate the skin.
Coconut oil comes in different infusions, including lemongrass, turmeric, ginger, and local herbs for an even more potent, invigorating, and luxuriating experience.
Pure oil is extracted from the coconut by carefully cooking it for at least three hours. The coconut is sourced from women of Barangay Cheey in Coron, Palawan, who rely on coconut for their livelihood and additional income. The arrangement also helps their community.
Other spa treatments at Glow Spa also use organic ingredients like yogurt, carrots, cucumber, papaya, oatmeal, fresh milk, and honey. Some of the produce is grown at Club Paradise’s own Taranuman Farm and are completely pesticide and chemical-free.
Among the treatments available include Body Massage, Body Scrub, and Natural Body Scrub, Natural Scrub, Luxurious Indulgence, and Tropical Hot Pack with Holistic Massage.
