Arizona has to be one of the harshest and arid climates. Living here we have brutally overprocessed water loaded with minerals, dry summers, winters and dust for days. With all of these factors skin can dry, crack and be in a constant state of thirst. Part of my struggles is to find a lotion and or moisturizer that will hydrate and soften my skin without feeling greasy, oily and or dry me out. I have been reading more about using vegetable oils in lieu of lotions. All that being said, for the last few weeks I have been using fractionated coconut oil for my hair and skin.
What is fractionated coconut oil?
Fractionated coconut oil is just as it sounds; a fraction of coconut oil. Natural products that have minimal to no processing can result in instability as well as something that can spoil in a rather short period of time. Since coconut oil is extremely beneficial for your skin and hair, the fraction of the coconut oil is a pure saturated oil with a long shelf life.
The product is a thin, silky smooth oil that is and can be used for a multitude of purposes. For example, the production of soap, lotions, ointments and other cosmetic products.
I received a bottle of Bayleaf Botanicals Fractionated Coconut Oil with pump and I could not be more pleased. I love coconut oil to eat and to use on my hair but sometimes I am left feeling a bit too greasy. The fractionated coconut oil is thinner, silkier and I don’t feel like I am using oil on my skin. The oil is also a great addition to my leg shaving routine, perfect for smoothing my fly-away hairs and I can be free to add my own scents because the oil is scent free and odorless. If you are looking to make a change to your beauty and health routine but are leery of using a vegetable oil that you feel is reserved only for cooking, you can rest assured this is not your typical coconut oil.
We are giving away one bottle of Bayleaf Botanicals Fractionated Coconut Oil to try in your home valued at $24.99.
