IS IT SAFE TO USE ANY COCONUT OIL FOR MY SKIN?
People often think that all virgin coconut oils are alike when it comes to using them for cooking and skin care, but it’s not true! For starters, many coconut oils will clog your pores and cause breakouts. Make sure you’re not doing your skin more harm than good by using the right one!
Your choice of which coconut oil to use can either make or break your beauty routine. Don’t let the mistake of using the wrong coconut oil turn you off from using it on your skin, forever!
"Very impressed! I've been using various coconut oils for my skin/hair care for about 20yrs. I think this brand is by far my favorite! A little goes a long way. Leaves my dry skin very hydrated, super soft and not greasy at all. Autoship worthy!"
CHOOSING A HIGH QUALITY COCONUT OIL FOR YOUR SKIN
You should know that simply because it’s marketed as cold-pressed “virgin coconut oil” it doesn’t mean you should start applying it all over your skin. Many of the oils on the market are just way too smelly, thick, greasy, and are full of impurities.
Most coconut oils for cooking, even ones marketed to include “skin and hair use” are only really good enough for cooking and really shouldn’t be used on your body.
In other words, if you are using coconut oil for your body, it’s extremely important to use a clean, high quality oil that is pure and unrefined. Make sure to choose one that contains ALL the raw nutrients and fatty acids beneficial to your skin, such as COCO & CO. natural, organic Clean, 100% RAW Coconut Oil for Skin.
Using a special extraction process, COCO & CO. produces the highest quality beauty-grade oil available on the market and lab tested up to 1000% more pure than other virgin coconut oil brands.

HOW TO USE FOR BODY
Deeply moisturizing, coconut oil protects the skin from dehydration and keeps it feeling soft. It reduces inflammation in irritated or delicate skin types while also increasing collagen production which reduces wrinkles and age spots.
✓STEP 1: Scoop a very small amount of coconut oil onto your fingertips- Due to the purity of the oil, you won’t need much - just a little bit goes a long way!
✓STEP 2: Apply the coconut oil to your whole body by gently massaging the oil onto your skin, applying more oil in small amounts, as needed.
✓STEP 3: (Optional) Based on your preference, you can either leave on, (an you’re done!) Or use one of the following methods to remove excess oil:
- Using a towel, gently wipe off the excess oil from your skin’s surface - OR
- Rinse off the excess oil using warm water and a mild soap, such as COCO & CO. beauty bar.
Don’t worry, Coconut oil does the job quickly and efficiently! It absorbs fast and penetrates deep into your skin, leaving all the benefits and moisture your skin will need.

“My face was covered in acne with new ones popping up daily, and I just couldn’t get rid of them no matter what I did. My friend suggested I try coconut oil and let me just say, it worked a miracle. I started using this as a moisturizer and my acne disappeared. My skin has never looked better, and that’s coming from someone who was on Accutane… And my skin is so healthy and happy. I’m halfway through this jar and will not stop using it!”
