Participate in the Parachute Advansed Goodness Of Coconut contest and win exciting prizes for blogging about the wonders of this age old Indian ‘wonder nut’!
The coconut is no stranger to us in India – we use it in our cooking, we use the fibre to make beautiful things and best of all, we love to use it for our skin. The Goodness Of Coconut Contest, brought to you by Parachute Advansed body lotion – is all about coconut for your skin.
Yes, you heard it right – all you need to do is reach into your memories or think about your daily skincare routine, and blog about ‘Goodness Of Coconut For The Skin’. Be as creative as you can be. Skincare rituals that have become a part of your day? The smell and feel of coconut milk? Coconut for skin as part of Indian wisdom and heritage? These are just some of the ideas we’re throwing out for you to chew on – we’re sure you will come up with more!

Goodness of coconut is said to be a blessing in our lives because each part of the coconut is useful. The coconut oil is good for the skin. when the skin tends to become old after applying oil it comes back to the beautiful glowing form. Thanks for the coconut goodness
When you use coconut oil on your skin, the benefits are profound and long-term. Once it completely penetrates the pores of your skin, it will eventually end up in your bloodstream for more health-improving activities.
The skin is the largest single organ in your body. It is the only thing or covering that prevents air-born, water-born or whatever-born killers from dismantling every single cell in your body.
Fortifying your skin with “antimicrobial” MCFAs is one of the most effortless ways to guarding against infection. Coconut oil is nature’s richest source of rare MCFAs.
submitted my entry…. it was really awesome and i feel very happy participating in this contest.. the only doubt is where are the results going to be displayed or the winners will be eliminated by email ..??
Hi, Can hair care be an eligible part of it?
Hi Numerounity, sure, while the focus is on skin, you could add in thoughts on haircare as well.
Thanks Admin/…Why I asked hair as coconut and coconut oil is widely known for his enriching effect on hairs. Thanks though I will try to focus on skin care keeping the product’s interest in mind 🙂
Hi Admin! I just have seen the other blog posts of competitors and so much confused!! You have told that the word limitation is 500; but a big part of them posted with excess words! Is the word-limit is essential? My 2nd question is, can use pictures collected from Google in my post?
My entry for the contest is here http://hiphopgmom.blogspot.in/2013/01/goodness-of-coconut-for-skin_6319.html
However I am not able to downsize the video. Is it okay?
this was awesome …….. fun in creating blogs ……see my entry here : wwww.goodnessofcoconut.co.nr
@Koyeli – entries over the word limit are not being disqualified, but priority may be given to those who meet all the criteria (including word limit).Pics entirely your choice.
@Padma – no worries about video size. Hope you were able to post your entry at the brand page too: goodnessofcoconut.com
Thank you so much Admin for replying me. I will try to meet all the criteria.

Submitted, and enjoyed going thru memory lane http://bbsearchingself.wordpress.com/2013/01/23/going-nuts-over-the-coconut/
Well, I really committed a blunder….instead of giving the post’s link, I submitted the blog’s link. Now that I have updated my blog with another recent post, my contest entry link takes me to the latest of my post and not the contest post. Is there anyway I can modify/edit the link to my contest blog-post? Or you guys will figure it out yourself?
We’ll figure it out 🙂
Priyadarshini, unable to access your blog link, so can’t see what the problem is. Do give it another shot!
Here’s the entry I have submitted for the contest: Cocooned in Coconut .
All the very best to all participants!
I tried to post my entry but it says invalid image, even after posting the video after a couple of trials. Please help
Submitted my post a few hours ago. Hope to see it appear in the links page.
Hello Admin, I have some problem to submit my entry. I can’t understand what data I need to submit in the place ‘Description’, ‘Tags’ and ‘Thumbnail’. Please help me.
