I am kicking off my ingredient spotlight with Coconut Oil – Cocos nucifera. This is a favorite in our home for everyday uses, as well as, in many of the products I make. I started using coconut oil, in my life, way before I started making soap. The first use I found for coconut oil was as my eye makeup remover. It is by far the best eye makeup remover I have ever used. It is inexpensive, gentle, and removes mascara perfectly. A small jar last forever!
So here is the deal with Coconut Oil and why I love it!
Coconut oil is all natural extracted from the kernel of mature coconuts. It is high in fatty acids and antioxidants. Coconut oil is antimicrobial, antifungal, and antibacterial. Because it is high in antioxidants it is great for nourishing the skin and keeping it youthful. Coconut oil aids in removing dead skin cells, which can clog pores. And that is why I love coconut oil!
