Vegan Haircare & Self Tan By Coco & Eve
Infused with the best tropical Balinese ingredients – including coconut oil, cocoa, mangoes, papayas, and guava, the kind-to-skin ingredients that star in the Coco & Eve collection are made to nourish your hair, skin, and body. From sun-kissed vegan self tan in a bottle to treats for your tresses, this is beauty the Balinese way.
Aussie expat, Emily, spent many a holiday enjoying exploring the lush rainforests and volcanic beaches of beautiful Bali. She felt totally inspired by her surroundings and the magical feeling of the Indonesian Island. With it's endless bounty of skin-loving plants and tropical fruits, Emily soon discovered how much of an Eden Bali is for beauty lovers. She got to thinking of how she could bottle this Balinese beauty and harness the power of luscious, tropical ingredients fused with serious science. And knowing that Indonesia is the world's largest producer of raw virgin coconuts, Emily had her star ingredient - the start of Coco & Eve began.
100% Vegan Beauty (And Cruelty-Free!)
Coco & Eve are dedicated to their customers and want to give them the very best, so they avoid using drying and damaging sulfates, phthalates, or parabens, (unlike 98.9% of beauty products). They also prioritise the well-being of our furry friends, making them a proudly 100% cruelty free beauty brand, along with being vegan and PETA-approved.
Bali is the home to an amazingly diverse collection of wildlife and plants, and with deforestation posing a loss of natural habitat to many animals, Coco & Eve use only FSC paper and card from sustainably managed forests. They also ensure that their natural ingredients are sourced from only eco-conscious suppliers.
The Best Balinese Skincare Ingredients
From coconut oil and cocoa, to the most juicy, rich, mangoes, papayas, and guava, Coco & Eve have spent years perfecting their formulas to make sure they give the very best results.
Two of their most iconic products that you might have seen on your social media timeline is their award-winning Like A Virgin Hair Masque and Sunny Honey Bali Bronzing Foam – products that are both gorgeous to use, but deliver incredible multi-benefit results for your hair, body and skin, too!
In fact, Coco & Eve have a pretty hefty 18 beauty awards under their belt - from being Winners of the Pure Global Awards 2018, to winning the Nylon Best Hair Mask award, the brand is taking the industry by storm.
No Nasties Beauty Formulas
Coco & Eve challenge themselves to create market-beating products, and work to scour the globe to find the best quality natural botanicals for their formulas. These sought-after natural botanicals are then paired with their superior laboratory-made ingredients. The cruelty-free formulas are free from:
- Mineral oils
- Palm oil
All Coco & Eve formulas are also 100% microbead-free to help to protect our ocean life. Any manual exfoliants that you see in the Coco & Eve collection are made from natural, biodegradable particles that the brand assures us will get you gorgeously glowing without clogging your drains - or harming marine life.
Although the brand is committed to minimising the use of synthetics in their formulas, they do state that they will sometimes need to use them to deliver the best possible product. For example, the iconic Coco & Eve fragrances are derived from synthetic ingredients because natural fragrances, like essential oils, can actually cause irritation to your skin – plus, they’re not necessarily more sustainable, either. In fact, Coco & Eve say that it can take a huge 10 times more flowers to create a natural fragrance than a synthetic one!
