why coconut oil?

Coconuts are the natural, organic, jack-of-all-fruits. We drink it, we eat it, we cook and clean with it. And although it might seem trendy at the moment, coconut oil has been used in ancient Hawaiian beauty rituals for centuries. Have you ever noticed how natives of tropical regions have the most gorgeous skin and hair? They don’t use fancy creams full of cutting-edge chemicals. They certainly don’t stay out of the sun. So what’s their secret? Coconut oil, of course. But what’s so great about it?

  • It's a skin win.

    Coconut oil makes skin everything you want it to be—glowy, healthy, hydrated, young, supple and smooth. That’s because it’s made mostly of fatty acids. Diving deeper into the specific fatties, you’ll find Lauric, Capric and Caprylic acids. These are good fats that help keep skin hydrated and super soft. And we can’t forget about vitamin E, which is loaded with antioxidants to keep skin ageless and protect against dryness. Yes, please.

  • Aloha, healthy hair

    Coconut oil makes hair healthy,strong, glossy, and even moisturizes the scalp. Hair is made of long amino acids chains containing about 91 percent protein. Coconut is full of restorative proteins and vitamin E and helps increase body and shine of your hair. And a shout out to hair-loving Lauric and Capric acids which allow the oil to easily penetrate the hair shaft and reach the cuticle to moisturize from the inside out. Coconut oil + hair = love affair.

Kopari takes coconut oil’s many benefits to the next level by incorporating innovative natural ingredients that enhance the performance of traditional coconut oil. So now that you know, get your coconut on.

our co-founder

Say Aloha to Kiana.
She loves to beach.
She loves to bikini.
And she looooooves to coconut.

I was born and raised a bona fide beach baby in Honolulu, Hawaii. I spent summers with my dad, Joey Cabell—a Hawaiian surfing legend, living on a catamaran in Hanalei Bay, Kauai. Boredom turned into beauty when I started experimenting with creating my own hair and skin products made from wild coconuts, awapuhi ginger flower, papaya and aloe vera found in the jungle of Kauai’s North Shore.

When it was time to jump off the Hawaiian dreamboat, I landed at the University of San Diego. I then went on to further study integrative health and nutrition at NYC’s Natural Gourmet Institute, where I became a certified organic chef.

The most important thing I learned? Coconut oil is the most kick-ass ingredient known to (wo)man. You can eat it, cook it, slather it, swish it, spray it, sun it, soak it, scrub it, and clean with it. There’s almost nothing this super-food can’t do.

“Once I went coconut I never went back."

I also learned what you put on your skin matters. As your body’s largest organ, everything is absorbed directly into your bloodstream. And after discovering how many crazy-nasty toxins are found in traditional hair and skincare products, once I went coconut, I never went back. I drove myself nuts trying to find the perfect beauty products that were not only super effective, but totally safe. But nothing came close to coconut oil.

So I started to wonder, why isn’t there a coconut oil specifically formulated for beauty? Sure, there’s the traditional grocery store coconut oil. But I wanted more. I wanted luxurious coconut products made especially for my skin and hair. The high-grade stuff that feels good, smells great, absorbs well, isn’t greasy, is unquestionably safe and has amazing performance. You know, something that takes regular coconut oil up a notch. That’s when I decided to create the most perfect coconut oil beauty products on the planet.

So I said, “Mahalo, New York,” and “Aloha, San Diego. Let’s get our coconut on and call it Kopari.”

our manifesto

Let’s go on a coconut power trip and slip into summer like we
were born to bikini.

Let’s make coconut a friend with many benefits. Let’s hook up with hydration. Moisturize like a boss. Love on lips. Caress cuticles. Tame fuzzy flyaways. Split ends, be gone.

At Kopari, we coconut like we give a damn. We’re unnaturally obsessed with all things au naturel. We’re prejudiced against parabens, and we give a stiff middle finger to sulfates. In a nutshell, we’re passionate about products that make you look gorgeous with ingredients that make you feel great.

So we’re calling all coconut virgins and junkies and everyone in-between. Let’s grab life by the coconuts. Because coconut is one mother of a multitasker. And we think that’s beautiful.
