Coconut Oil Uses: Why Coconut Oil is One of Our Clean Beauty Faves

Coconut oil has certainly had its moment in the sun as of late, thanks in no small part to a myriad of potential everyday uses. Extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm, it’s no wonder this sweet-smelling, benefit-rich ingredient is included in some of our clean beauty faves.

Rich in saturated fats — which can work to repair the skin’s natural barrier function and help lock in moisture by slowing evaporation — this multi-tasking ingredient can be found hard at work in our Magic Beauty Balm. Go ahead, soothe and soften lips, cuticles and dry spells everywhere with just a touch.

Packed with Vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids, coconut oil is also naturally soft and waxy, making it perfect for providing lips with luscious cushion and conditioning. Enjoy its benefits in our lightweight, high-impact (and award-winning) Demi Matte Lip Crayons — our not-so-secret weapon for satiny-soft lips.

This plant-derived ingredient’s potential plusses don’t end with the skin and lips; it can also work wonders for dry, unruly hair. With coconut oil among its certified organic ingredients, our All-Purpose Balm is perfect for taming frizz and flyaways and rubbing on split ends to smooth hair.

All the love for skin, lips and hair? Yes, yes and more yes.
