The Many Beauty Uses of Coconut Oil
So, 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.
Skinny & Co offers chemical-free coconut oil with no fillers, bleach, preservatives, binding agents, solvents, or toxins. After researching, 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.
Finally, they support sustainable businesses in Vietnam and the United States. You can find it right here.
First, here are a few of the most common ways to use coconut oil.
- Makeup remover, including waterproof mascara
- Facial Cleanser
- Daily Moisturizer
- Beard Oil
- Naturally moisturize and clean hair
- Remove build-up
- Soothe dry, itchy scalp
- Promotes softness and shine
Lip Tube/Lip Balm
- Moisturize rough, chapped lips
- Perfectly sized for on-the-go
- Soothe cracked heels and elbows
- Cuticle treatment
- Moisturize and soothe itchy skin
- Shaving cream
- Great for after sun
- Soothe skin rash and baby acne
- Deep conditioning treatment
- Add to coffee, smoothies, and tea
- May boost metabolism and promote fullness
- Use as a healthy replacement for butter or other oils
Oil pulling takes a bit of time to get used to. However, the benefits are definitely worth it.
- Lessens bad breath
- Naturally whiten teeth
- Shown to remove plaque
- DIY toothpaste
So, if you haven’t tried their sugar scrub, I highly recommend it. Get it here.
- Exfoliate skin
- Add to coffee and tea
- Great for shaving
- Lip exfoliator
Finally, you can use their raw soap in these ways.
- Body soap
- Hand soap
So, other manufacturers take advantage of the FDA rule allowing up to 20% cheaper, filler oils to be added to coconut oil. However, Skinny Coconut Oil is 100% pure coconut oil and you can 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 be. There are less than 5 hours from when the coconut is picked to when it is processed.
First, I tried several items from their travel kit, and I am in love with the difference I’ve seen in my skin.
Then, I tried 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.
There are many different brands of coconut oil. However, Skinny Coconut Oil is the one I trust the most.
