What is it and how to interpret it?

PPM is not a new term in the skincare industry and it sounds sophisticated, doesn’t it? What does PPM really mean and stand for?

PPM stands for Parts Per Million. It is a type of measurement unit of concentration. It represents part of the total number in units of 1/1,000,000 (million). It is a unit that is more commonly used in the laboratory.
It’s not as complicated as you thought!

Let’s take few examples:

We have 110,000ppm of Centella Asiatica. What does it mean? Let’s get down to the equation!

110,000ppm = 110,000/1,000,000 = 0.11 = 11%

So, it basically means that 110,000ppm of Centella Asiatica is equal to 11% of Centella Asiatica.

Where there is basically 110,000 parts of Centella Asiatica in one million of molecules.

Naturally occurring digestive enzymes are a vital part of our digestive system. Without them, our body can’t break foods down so that nutrients can be fully absorbed.
Digestive enzymes help our body break down carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. This is necessary to allow for the absorption of nutrients and to maintain optimal health. Without these enzymes, the nutrients in our food go to waste.
Digestive enzymes take the place of natural enzymes. Once foods are broken down, nutrients are absorbed into our body through the wall of the small intestine and distributed through the bloodstream.

Organic, cold-pressed, virgin...what exactly do all these labels mean, and how does one choose the best type of Coconut Oil? Is all Coconut Oil the same?

No, they are not the same! The best type of coconut oil for skin is organic virgin coconut oil, as it’s the least processed of the bunch so it retains the most nutrients! 100% Pure Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is obtained from fresh coconuts and is 100% natural. The oil is non-sticky, lightweight in texture, and gets easily absorbed by the skin. Being pesticide-free and fertilizer-free!

When using coconut oil for face, avoid buying the more processed varieties produced primarily for food purposes. It may be great for cooking, but you don’t necessarily want it on your face!

In other words, don’t go shopping for coconut oil in the grocery store unless you see organic virgin on the shelf. That's why we chose Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm packed with 100% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.

Eczema, is a common skin condition marked by itchy and inflamed patches of skin.

It’s often seen in babies and young children, appearing on the faces of infants. But eczema can come in a variety of types in children, teens, and adults. Many people use the word eczema when referring to atopic dermatitis, which is the most common type.

Certain foods, such as nuts and dairy, can trigger symptoms. Environmental triggers include smoke, pollen, soaps, and fragrances. Eczema is not contagious.

In most cases, however, eczema is mild. The most common symptoms of atopic dermatitis include:

- dry, scaly skin
- skin flushing
- itching
- open, crusted, or weeping sores

Some people outgrow the condition, whereas others will continue to have it throughout adulthood.

Pyrus ussuriensis (Pyrus ussuriensis Maxim Leaves, in short PUL), also known as the Ussurian pear, Harbin pear, and Manchurian pear, is a species of flowering plant in the family Rosaceae.

It is native to Korea, Japan, and the Ussuri River area of far eastern Russia. It has flowers in spring that are slightly pink when budding and then turn white.

The tree grows to a height of about 15 meters (49 ft) and prefers well-drained loam-type soils. It is considered the hardiest of all pears.

PUL is found effective in easing eczema inflammation conditions by relieving itching and increasing moisture retention. Further, it also boosts the skin’s immunity.⁠

Also, don't forget it is the STAR ingredient of the GNST Coco line, and that's the reason this range stays the best for treating eczema, rash, and redness, in babies and adults.

We are sure you are more knowledgeable about IPL after the raging success, love and support that we have received from your end, CocoFam!

Yes, after the very launch of SmoothSkin IPL devices, we felt we had done the right thing by going behind the World's No.1 IPL Hair Removal Brand and making it available right here on Cocomo, for YOU!

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. IPL Hair Removal is designed to help break the cycle of hair growth by targeting the hair root or follicle. Light energy is transferred through the skin’s surface and is absorbed by the melanin present in the hair shaft. The absorbed light energy is converted to heat energy (below the surface of the skin), which disables the hair follicle preventing further growth. Treated hairs naturally fall out over the course of a few days to 1-2 weeks.

The at-home safe and effective Hair Removal devices Bare+ and Pure that work on the principle of IPL are onboard with us for your care!
