Don’t panic! The Black And White Minstrels aren’t making a comeback, but this little jar of polish could be most strangely versatile product you buy…

Remember the time you’d run out of moisturiser and you had to rub shoe polish on your face? OK, so maybe that didn’t happen, but should this be a problem in the future, we may have the solution. In case you missed the launch of this organic, edible shoe cream from Po-Zu, here’s what you need to know…

The brand has long been using coconut, the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of food-stuffs in the soles of its Eco shoes and boots, and now they’ve used the humble ingredient to make an organic shoe cream – so natural, it can be eaten!

Sri- Lankan coconuts are used to create a clear nourishing shoe cream that gives shoes a great deep treatment and great shine. It also doubles up as an ‘all-in-one’ grooming product that can be used as a lip balm, skin moisturizer, hair conditioner and massage oil. If you’re elbows are chafed and dry after a week of wearing woolies at your desk, rub a little of the polish in and skin will soon be restored. Coconut oil has been used for centuries throughout Asia as a skincare product and is said to be the secret behind many nation’s youthful glow.  

Coconut oil has a host of health benefits too when eaten. Emerging research has shown coconut oil may have a positive effect on memory loss, reducing cholesterol, aid digestion, boost immunity and improve insulin resistance. Eat raw or cooked in anyway you would use butter, spread or oil.
