This oil stays a liquid unlike regular coconut oil that goes solid at room temperature. It is odorless, colorless, & non-greasy. It absorbs into skin nicely, doesn’t clog pore. It also has an indefinite shelf life. It is an ideal carrier oil & base for home-made bath & beauty products. I like this oil because its only one ingredient 100% Pure Fractionated Coconut Oil with no fillers & not tested on animals. This specific oil is best for cosmetic/skincare/beauty, not for cooking. Like this peppermint sugar scrub I made. You just need sugar, coconut oil, peppermint essential oil, I also used crushed up peppermints for the pink color but you could also use a little food coloring.
I made this a week or two before I received the Radha Beauty Coconut oil, I should have waited! It would have been perfect. Recipe >> DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub What else can you do with this oil?
