What is coconut oil?
Coconut oil comes from – you guessed it – coconuts. Specifically, it’s a liquid that’s extracted from the meat of the fruit.
A do-it-all super ingredient chock full of good fats, it has the power to energize, fight bacteria, keep the heart healthy and give us glowing, super-smooth skin.
What are the skincare benefits of coconut oil?
It locks in moisture. Like hyaluronic acid and shea butter, coconut oil penetrates deep into your skin, forming a protective barrier that keeps the bad stuff out – and the good stuff in.
It’s an age-old wrinkle reducer.For centuries, it’s been used to help minimize wrinkles and age spots.
It blocks out the sun. SPF 4! (Just don’t go sunbathing without some extra protection.)

It’s a mighty makeup remover.Coconut oil wipes away even the most resilient, waterproof beauties.
