I have just been to some top London stores and looked at their Beauty Ranges. They still choose companies making products from man made substances that if one were to concentrate the amounts would be very harmful.Chemicals on the body are “foreign” and interfere with our body working effectively. They can either block the pores up, or, get absorbed in. Some people may have reaction immediately, for others becomes like a slow-acting poison.Mother Nature provides and has done since time immemorial. By choosing to reconnect with nature you are indeed becoming part of it , as we are one.By having natural products and knowing they are sustainably sourced you are helping yourself, the local gatherers and the planet.
The versatility of Coconut Oil is amazing. People in the business world are asking me, Darren is it for cooking or for the skin? Do I answer them as a commercialist or as a naturalist and honestly…My journey has led me to see nature’s way and get the best of it with the least amount of change so as to optimise the health benefits.
So back to my London Store selling a jar of Miracle Nipple Cream 60g at £26! The unknowing Sales Team didn’t expect me to ask questions; I did actually ask if their products had coconut oil in, in order to start a dialogue. They replied they didn’t know and it took me to inform them that it did, as it seemed that I was the only one actually reading the label. I was told that it was for lactating mother’s with sore nipples, I replied “Wow! does that mean that it’s safe for babies to eat then?” Once again they replied they didn’t know for sure. I’m not trying to belittle the sales team as I’m sure that they’re lovely people. However, it shows that we buy things on the information we are given, and its appearance and smell.
Is it good for us? Well, its been made for our consumption and it says it is and it states that it for this purpose,…and it says it’s Organic…
I’ve been there myself and bought many products like this. Hopefully I can help others and inform them that thee are better choices out there. A cream made of different concoctions (it did contain some coconut in it, or so the label says) which you wouldn’t want to eat at all.

“An important part of breast milk is medium chain fatty acids, principally Lauric Acid, which is also the same as in coconut oil. The MCFA’s in breast milk improve nutrient absorption, aid digestive function, help blood sugar levels, and protect the baby from harmful micro-organisms. The baby’s immature defensive (immune) system is supported by the ; antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-parasitic properties of these vital fatty acids.”
