Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil

I have been using coconut oil as both a body moisturizer and butter substitute for years. First mentioned here in my Top 10 Great Body Products post, there are a million and one uses for this amazing organic oil. Here's what I wrote:
This oil is quite the multitasker. First up: makeup remover. Rubbing a bit of coconut oil on waterproof makeup will allow it to dissolve and be washed away with a face cleanser. I also love using coconut oil as my all over body moisturizer. I apply the oil when my body is slightly damp after a shower as it helps lock in the moisture. This is a great option for dry skin, but still works fine for more oily skin. My favourite trick is mixing it with one or two drops of tea tree oil, to prevent ingrown hairs on my legs, and breakouts on my chest and back. If you have dry hair, applying some of the oil to the ends of your hair works wonders as a hydrating mask. Put it on before bed, wake up, shower it out and you hair will be extra shiny and healthy looking. On occasion, I really enjoy a teaspoon of it on raisin toast!

Recently launched in Sephora Canada, Skinny Coconut Oil is 100% pure, wild-harvested, raw coconut oil that uses a revolutionary no heat technique to extract coconut oil in its purest form. Each jar of Skinny Coconut Oil takes 3x longer than other extraction 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.

So is Skinny Coconut Oil different from typical grocery store coconut oil?

I have noticed that the texture of this oil is so smooth, and the scent is light and sweet. I used it on my face for the first time, and had no adverse reactions. I usually prefer a thinner oil for my combination skin, but this one seemed to work just fine. This is a noticeably higher quality oil than what I've used in the past.

Skinny is a unique brand of coconut oil since it is completely pure, never overheated, and alkaline - it isn't acidic. I haven't tried it yet, but they recommend adding a scoop into smoothies for a metabolism boost.

Ever heard of "oil pulling"? Every morning, you can swish around 1 tbsp. of Skinny in your mouth for 5-20 minutes. This will lead to fresher breath, whiter teeth and a brighter smile.

Though $15 CAD is a pretty hefty price tag for an oil that you can usually find (in bulk) for cheaper, I am so happy with the size of this jar, and how it performs on my skin when compared to other brands.

Skinny & Co. hopes to "change the world" with their partners in Vietnam. Read more about Matt and Luke's story here.
