Argan oil is a natural oil derived from the kernels of the argan tree, which is native to Morocco. For centuries, this oil has been used by Moroccan women as a beauty elixir for their hair and skin. In recent years, argan oil has gained popularity worldwide due to its numerous skin care benefits.
One of the most notable benefits of argan oil is its moisturizing properties. The oil is rich in essential fatty acids, including linoleic acid and oleic acid, which help to hydrate and nourish the skin. It also contains high levels of vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from damage caused by free radicals.
Argan oil is also known for its anti-aging properties. It contains saponins, which help to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, the vitamin E in the oil helps to boost collagen production, which can improve skin elasticity and firmness.
In addition to its moisturizing and anti-aging properties, argan oil has been found to be effective in treating a variety of skin conditions. It has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to soothe skin irritations, such as eczema and psoriasis. It also has antibacterial properties that can help to fight acne and other bacterial infections.
Argan oil is a versatile and effective natural ingredient that offers numerous skin care benefits. Whether used on its own or in combination with other products, it can help to hydrate, nourish, and protect the skin, while also fighting signs of aging and improving skin conditions.
BOTANICAL NAME: Argania spinosa
EXTRACTION: Cold pressed
DESCRIPTION: Argan trees are found in the semi-desert region of Morocco. The trees are mid-sized, growing to be approximately 10 feet tall, and can live up to 200 years old. Argan trees produce a nut that is rich in oil and is uncovered by removing the fleshy pulp of the tree's fruit and breaking the nut to release the kernels inside. These kernels are cold pressed in order to obtain the oil, boasting a number of health benefits. The process of making argan oil is typically done by local Moroccan women in co-ops, giving them the opportunity to earn income for their families. The oil has high levels of vitamin E, antioxidants and fatty acids which work to protect and sooth skin while also keeping it smooth and firm. This oil is a miraculous moisture treatment and is suitable for those with oily skin.

Neroli hydrosol is a natural botanical water that is derived from the steam distillation of the fragrant flowers of the bitter orange tree. It has a sweet, floral scent that is uplifting and refreshing, making it a popular ingredient in aromatherapy and skin care products. Neroli hydrosol is known for its numerous skin care benefits, including:
Soothes and calms the skin: Neroli hydrosol has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that help soothe and calm irritated skin. It is particularly beneficial for those with sensitive or reactive skin, as it can help reduce redness and inflammation.
Hydrates and moisturizes the skin: Neroli hydrosol is a natural humectant, which means it helps the skin retain moisture. It is also rich in antioxidants that protect the skin from environmental stressors and free radicals that can cause premature aging.
Balances oil production: Neroli hydrosol helps balance the skin's natural oil production, making it beneficial for those with oily or combination skin. It can also help prevent breakouts and blemishes by reducing excess oil on the skin.
Promotes cell regeneration: Neroli hydrosol contains citral, which promotes cell regeneration and can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.

BOTANICAL NAME: Citrus (Latin name for citron) aurantium (orange) var. amara
EXTRACTION: Steam distillation
DESCRIPTION: Neroli Hydrosol is a water solution infused with the essence of the neroli blossom. Often during the extraction process of essential oils some of the aromatic and healing principles of the plants are lost. Certain components of essential oils are hydrophilic, meaning they dissolve in water, so the process of producing a hydrosol allows one to capture the full essence of the plant delivering its complete arsenal of capabilities. Neroli hydrosol is derived from the blossom of the bitter orange (Citrus aurantium var. amara) tree, much like the essential oil. This tree is native to Eastern Africa, India and the Himalayas and thrives in moderate climates. This hydrosol has a long history of use. Dating back to the fourteenth century, it was used as a scent for household linen. In the sixteenth and seventeenth century, orange blossom trees were cultivated in France to be used in the perfume industry as well as in cuisine. Neroli hydrosol is an astringent making it ideal for those with oily skin. It contains natural alpha hydroxyl acid which works to gently cleanse skin without stripping its natural moisture.
KEY COMPONENTS: Linalyl acetate, limonene, linalool, geraniol

BOTANICAL NAME: Hamamelis (Greek - name for another plant) virginiana (Virginia)
EXTRACTION: Steam Distillation
DESCRIPTION: Witch Hazel hydrosol is a water distillate extracted from the witch-hazel shrub, or the Hamamelis virginiana. The witch hazel plant is found in North America and has been used in traditional indigenous medicine for centuries. Witch hazel is an astringent with multiple skincare benefits. Indigenous cultures in North America use this astringent to treat swellings, inflammations and tumors. Their healing methods using this ingredient were adopted by early Puritan settlers once they arrived from Europe. It was Dr. Charles Hawes who discovered that steam distillation of witch hazel stems and bark produced stronger healing capabilities and was the first to market witch hazel as “Hawes Extract” in Essex, Connecticut at the end of the 19th century. Witch hazel hydrosol is clear and colourless and has an innate ability to sooth, calm and cool skin. It contains astringent tannins gallic acid, hamamelitannin and proanthocyanidins that have a drying effect on the skin.
KEY COMPONENTS: gallic acid, hamamelitannin, proanthocyanidin

Skin care starter kit (travel kit)
I use the skin care for oily skin at home and have the starter kit in my travel bag so that my skin stays soft and hydrated when I am on the road. So, no matter the water, air or climate my skin still looks healthy and feels soft.
Skin Care Starter Kit for Oily Skin
I bought this for travel - as my skin is so sensitive to different water, stress due to travel and dryness in planes and hotels. This makes sure that my skin routine stays consistent and avoids breakouts.
The jury is still out
The products are nice. I like the scents and textures. Four stars because I can’t say I’ve been wowed or noticed any significant difference with my skin. It’s been almost a month so maybe I won’t. I may purchase the travel size again simply for travel convenience. I also bought the sunscreen and Nordic Boost serum. While also nice, again not wowed, although I do really like the feel of the sunscreen. A bit more time may tell. Great customer service!
Light and Refreshing skin care products
Though I've used as many natural and organic products for as long as I can, as a 58 year old woman who is still dealing with hormonal jawline scarring and breakouts; I have now had to resort to other clinical, high profile brands. I love Cocoon, and what you stand for, but the products are just not giving me the results that I need as I continue to deal with some difficult skin issues. If you do not have any skin issues, this line is lovely, light, and have a wonderful breezy and sweet fragrance as well. I would still recommend Cocoon Apothecary!
Love the orange scent. This moisturizer is light and perfect for combo skin. Speedy delivery!
Love Love Love
The Orange Blossom line is glorious for my skin. My skin is smoother and feels luminous in comparison to before. The cleanser is gentle yet effective. The hydrosol is light and refreshing. The cream has a lovely feel and absorbs easily. Purchasing the full sizes of this line for sure. The travel size is handy if I ever go other places again. Shipping was super quick and the eco friendly packaging on point.
Oily Skin POS starter kit
I have been suffering with new breakouts around my nose, mouth and laugh lines due to mask wearing and trapped moisture. I appreciate that this kit treats my already oily skin while targeting the target spots. Being able to try a starter kit meant I could try it out without investing before I knew if it worked. Will definitely be going full size though as they are great products.
I saw a difference after the first 24hrs I used it. I would recommend it.
It's a great cleaner and I love how fresh and clean my face feels after use. The customer service is excellent, they helped guide me to this purchase based on my needs. Totally recommend it
Will definitely buy again!
LOVE IT!! Smells incredible, super easy, convenient, and has done wonders for my skin. I also love that it comes in a starter kit so that I can test it out before buying the full size products! Can't wait to try some other products soon!
Actually great for oily skin!
I am so happy with this face line for oily skin, I have been searching for a natural product to keep my skin in check for a long time. This line meets my non toxic requirements. The orange blossom scent is lovely.
so fresh and so clean
what an amazing product offered in trial size. my skin feels AMAZING.
