By now you probably have heard about the amazing benefits of coconut oil. It has so many purposes that range from skincare all the way to dental hygiene. This stuff is so versatile but more importantly, it is a more natural alternative to other products that you might be using! That is why I was so excited to review a sample pack of coconut oil from Skinny & Co.!
“Our coconuts are WILD HARVESTED from the jungles of Vietnam. The coconuts are hand-picked and transported directly to our plant; a controlled environment ensuring quality. Once cracked open, the coconut meat is put into the closed-loop, dehumidifying Nutralock System™. This extracts the moisture without heat, leaving all of the raw nutrients of the coconut intact.

Raw is better. The majority of coconut oils on the market claim to be “cold pressed,” but are actually heated prior to the pressing process.
This extracts more oil from each individual coconut, yet raises the temperature over 120˚ F and destroys nutritional value. We believe our Nutralock System™ is superior to any other pressing method. Each jar takes about three times longer than other processes and uses 12 coconuts. This is why you can see, smell and feel the difference between our oil and virtually any other oil on the market.
At Skinny Coconut Oil, we guarantee you 100% pure, wild-harvested, raw coconut oil. Try and jar and taste the difference!”
I have been using coconut oil for quite a long time now and really love it’s versatility. It first started when my newborn son had a horrible diaper rash and the traditional creams were not working. I decided to give coconut oil a try and honestly never used another diaper rash cream again. His rash was gone within a few days, and I was amazed! Now it’s always in my bathroom and my kitchen, and my kids request it for ‘owies’, chapped lips, rashes, and more. I was really interested in Skinny & Co. coconut oil not only because they promise 100% pure, raw oil (yes….you can eat this stuff because it is non-toxic), but also because they formulate it with other natural ingredients depending on the projected use. Some of my favorites include:
FACIAL OIL (Ingredients include: 100% Raw Coconut Oil, Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Holy Basil)
SUGAR SCRUB (Ingredients: 100% Raw Coconut Oil: Coconut Sugar: Natural source of glycol acid, low glycemic
