Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fractionation simply refers to the process in which virgin coconut oil is broken down from its solid form into its liquid form, allowing it to absorb into the skin without leaving any greasy residue. Aside from this, fractionated coconut oil is essentially the same as its solid counterpart and delivers all of the same amazing benefits. Coconut oil is high in saturated fats, making it one of the most moisturizing topical oils out there. Not only does it offer intense hydration, but it’s also able to lock in moisture to prevent further dehydration. That’s what makes it an ideal two-in-one alternative to shaving cream and after shave lotion. Another way you can use coconut oil in your natural beauty routine is in a deodorant bar. Just melt together coconut oil, shea butter, and baking soda, let it harden at room temperature, and voila!
