Parachute is the flagship brand of the Indian consumer goods company Marico Ltd. Under this brand name, Marico produces high-quality and 100% pure coconut oil, coconut-based hair products and coconut-based body lotions (branded as Parachute Advansed). The first coconut oil branded as Parachute was produced in 1974 by Bombay Oil Industries. Marico Ltd. was officially founded in 1991. Originally it produced only pure coconut oil in the ubiquitous blue bottles, but in 2001 it launched a series of body care products Parachute Advansed Body Lotion. Today, Parachute products are well-known both in India and abroad.

People who choose Parachute appreciate high-quality and natural skin and hair care products. All Parachute products are formulated with pure coconut oil which has been used in India as a cosmetic product for centuries. Parachute cosmetics are made with cold-pressed coconut oil. It is produced at low temperatures and thus retains all of its flavour, aroma and nutritional value. Due to its high saturated fat content, coconut oil is resistant to rancidification and has a relatively long shelf life.

Pure unrefined coconut oil is Parachute's main product. It is commonly used in cooking, especially in South Asian countries, but it can also be used as a cosmetic product for hair and skin care. Coconut oil is an excellent moisturiser. It nourishes the hair and skin, stimulates cell regeneration, accelerates hair growth and prevents hair loss, reduces protein loss in hair, protects from UV radiation and relieves sunburn.

Along with coconut oil, Parachute offers customers body lotions formulated with coconut oil and coconut milk (Parachute Advansed Body Lotion series). In these lotions, coconut-derived ingredients are combined with vegetable oils and herbal extracts to produce a maximum effect. They intensively hydrate, moisturise and condition even extremely dry skin. Parachute produces several kinds of lotions for all skin types and different purposes.

Before the 1991 economic liberalisation in India, vegetable oils were classified as an essential commodity by the Indian government and thus were ineligible for export. This meant that Marico could not export its products to foreign markets. Luckily, the situation has changed since then. In the early 1990s Marico opened its the first overseas office in the UAE and in 1999 the company set up its first overseas manufacturing facility in Bangladesh. Today, Parachute coconut oil and beauty products are exported to many countries all over the world.
