Each tube (5 g) is enough for about 4 fl oz of cream or lotion at approximately 4% concentration. First dissolve Coconut Endosperm in a small amount of warm water, then add to the cream or lotion. Use in your favorite cream or add to our Canvas Base Cream or European Cream.
Coconut Endosperm is very hygroscopic. Keep tube well closed in a cool, dry place until ready to use.
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Juice.
Coconut milk is liquid coconut endosperm. In nature it both stimulates the plant embryo to grow and at the same time supplies the plant embryo with food. Results from callus cultures show that its active components stimulate the growth of foreign cells, too. Endosperm is the seed tissue, both liquid and solid, used to provide nutrition to the plant embryo before it emerges and can obtain its own nutrition via photosynthesis.*
Coconut endosperm is the perfect cell food because the plant embryo is isolated from the environment until emergence, and the liquid endosperm provides everything the plant embryo needs and stimulates its growth. J. Van Overbeek (Rijksuniversiteit Utrecht) introduced coconut milk in 1941 as a new component of nutrient media for plant cell cultures.*
