Meet The Maker
Ahoy! I’m Em, the babe behind Cap’n Coconut. I started making my coconut creations in Portland, Oregon over a decade ago when I was diagnosed with Melanoma. The big C with the big M. It was scary and unexpected stuff. I took time off the hustle and bustle of the design agency world to recover. I used my time off to work on developing a deep-tissue moisturizer that would help to heal my scarring and transport me on a mental vacation. The moisturizer became my, now fan-favorite, Coconut Body Balm. I continued to grow the business, eventually moving into full-time product making in 2019. In 2020, the pandemic and the love of my life, brought me home to the beautiful Oregon Coast where Cap’n and I continue to thrive.
