WHAT’S YOUR SKIN TYPE?
from Dry Skin to Oily Skin,
Maturing Skin to Acne (or both at the same time …. sigh!!)
and Everything in Between.
How it all Began
Just had a Rash …. SO …. made some lotion.
HISTORY OF “CAYMAN’S COCONUT FACTORY”
In June of 2015 Couxcoux had one employee …. Me.
I had been experimenting for years with non-conventional skin care options that my mom, myself and my daughter could tolerate due to some allergy issues we’d been experiencing and, after several years of trial and error, the solution for us is: my homemade Couxcoux brand coconut oil based cleansers and moisturizers comprising only effective natural whole foods and properly sourced, good quality, essential oils.
The Couxcoux collections, SOS for my daughter, SILKY for myself, and SUN for my Mom, were so successful that I started sharing my ideas with my friends that were experiencing similar issues. When my friends friends started asking if I could help them too …. Couxcoux was born.
By December of 2015, I was successfully selling my Couxcoux Skin Care Collections and personal care products 2 days a week at a small local street market and distributing to 3 small local retailers.
But, this little launch was completely dependent on purchasing handmade, local coconut oil from some pretty obscure and remote sources. I discovered quickly that I was not able to buy enough local coconut oil to keep up with the demand for the Couxcoux products and the supply was often unreliable.
I knew I had a decision to make.
“We Want Your Nuts”
“We Want Your Nuts” is all about the Cayman coconuts that would have ended up in the ocean or in the trash via landscaping chores ….
Couxcoux has created a useful and beneficial way to use every part of these coconuts that supports our Islands’ sustainability and environmentalism.
From the coconut water, to the coconut meat, to the coconut shells, to the coconut husks …. no bit of the coconut gets wasted.
We use the coconut oil for our skin care and personal care lines. The coconut meat is dried into coconut flour. The shells are transformed into beautiful cups, bowls, candles, jewelry, toys and other decorative items. And the husks are shredded into animal bedding and garden mulch.
We collect decorative coconuts from the trees at many Cayman businesses and residents and UP-CYCLE them into all our wonderful products. The Cayman people understand the value of the local Cayman coconut and don’t want to see it wasted.
Thank you to the entire Cayman community for your participation, civic mindedness and generosity.
