I’m the first person to admit that I use my coconut oil mostly in the kitchen, but there are many beauty uses of coconut oil as well. Like anything else, all coconut oil is not created equally. When I was sent a few jars from the Skinny & Co Beauty Line, I couldn’t wait to try them and let you know what I thought.
The Many Beauty Uses of Coconut Oil
Skinny & Co offers chemical-free coconut oil with no fillers, bleach, preservatives, binding agents, solvents, or toxins. After doing a bit of research, I’ve learned that isn’t the case with all coconut oil. Skinny & co coconut oil is always alkaline, never acidic. There are only short and medium chain fatty acids (long chain fatty acids are stored as fat). It’s 100% raw and truly cold-processed. It’s never heated above 97 degrees Fahrenheit. Their coconuts are hand-picked and wild-harvested. Plus, they support sustainable business in Vietnam and the United States.
Here are a few ways that you can use the coconut oil products from Skinny & Co.
- Makeup remover, including waterproof mascara
- Facial Cleanser
- Daily Moisturizer
- Beard Oil
- Naturally moisturize and clean hair
- Remove build-up

Other manufacturers take advantage of the FDA rule that allows for up to 20% cheaper, filler oils to be added to coconut oil. Skinny Coconut Oil is 100% pure coconut oil and you can literally see the difference. Unlike other cold-pressed coconut oils that can heat coconut oil up to 120 degrees, Skinny Coconut Oil uses a unique, patent-pending process called “Nutralock Technology” that keeps the oil under 100 degrees and 100% raw. Skinny Coconut Oil is processed in the same jungle where the coconuts are wild-harvested so the oil is as virgin as it can possibly be. There is less than 5 hours from when the coconut is picked to when it is processed.
I was able to try several items from their travel kit and I am in love with the difference I’ve seen in my skin. Their Skinny Facial Oil works so well to remove waterproof mascara. Plus, it smells like lavender so it’s super soothing at the end of the day. I pampered my feet with the Skinny Sugar Scrub and I love how soft they feel now.
I have to admit that I am not a fan of oil pulling. I’ve tried it in the past and yuck. BUT, I tried it again with their Skinny Oil Pulling infused with refreshing peppermint and I have to say that it’s definitely not as bad that way.
