Copra is the dried kernel of the coconut (Cocos nucifera). It contains 50 to 68% oil. Copra oil, also known as coconut oil, is rich in lauric acid and other saturated fatty acids that make it solid at temperatures below 25° C. It is particularly appreciated for its emollient, moisturizing, and softening properties. It protects hair fibers against external aggressions and styling. It adds texture and softness to body butters.
