But, how does it work?
Organic, unrefined and cold pressed Virgin Coconut oil is loaded with phytonutrients, Vitamin-F, an essential fatty acid (EFA), that boasts antibacterial, anti-fungal, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory qualities. These EFAs are healthy saturated fats referred to as medium chain triglycerides that are unique to coconut. These EFAs include Caprylic, Lauric and Capric Acids. You will find these EFA in our exotic 100% Organic "Sweet Cream" of Coconut, that is of superior quality, cold pressed and unrefined from fresh, fully ripe coconuts.
Only Virgin Coconut Oil is made from raw, fresh coconut. Most coconut oils are made from copra, a dried form of coconut that generally is processed to remove debris.

The best method we have found, for applying coconut oil to your body or hair is directly after you have slightly towel dried from a shower. Simply scoop out a small dab and rub it between your palms then to your hair to calm frizz or to your legs after shaving. For a deep conditioning treatment, apply coconut oil to your scalp and hair then wrap it in a warm cotton towel for at least 30 minutes prior to shampooing twice. You can even leave coconut oil on your hair overnight to be washed away in the morning. Make sure to designate an older pillow case for this though to protect fine linens or wear a shower cap. As a softening night mask for mature skin, gently massage a small amount on your face, neck and decollete in upward strokes for a few minutes and get your beauty rest.
As a makeup remover, apply a dab of our 100% Organic "Sweet Cream" of Coconut on an organic cotton round and swipe it gently across your lashes top and bottom to remove waterproof eyeliner and mascara with ease, while adding deep hydration to your sensitive eye area. Rinse with warm water and reapply extra coconut oil for all night hydration. Coconut oil naturally clears stubborn makeup, dead skin cells and the grime of the day with antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that can be effective for removing the impurities that are the root of acne breakouts. Always spot test first for acne prone skin and do use a gentle cleanser, as a two step cleansing routine, after makeup removal with coconut oil.
