Skinny & Co. Raw Coconut Oil Review

I'm a huge fan of coconut oil and I've written a few articles discussing the beauty and health benefits here on the blog.  I personally love it and added it to my daily beauty and health routine years ago once I found out how amazing it is.  So when Skinny & Co. Coconut oil  asked me to review their raw coconut oil I couldn't wait to try it.

You may have not heard of Skinny & Co. yet, but their growing, and fast!  Skinny Coconut oil is an all-natural, pesticide-free, and 100% pure, made in small batches to ensure the highest quality standards.  They also promote fair trade with their suppliers and use ethical business practices within their community.

Due to the high quality coconut oil, Skinny & Co. provides the ultimate health and beauty benefits because it's in the rawest form and the highest quality on the market.  Unlike most coconut oils available on the market, Skinny Coconut oil is never heated above room temperature and goes through a slow manufacturing process to ensure their quality remains the best on the market. This process Skinny Coconut oil takes about three times longer as other processes used and requires about double the coconuts needed to fill their 16.9 oz jars.  

Skinny Coconut oil comes from mature pesticide-free coconuts from the jungles of Vietnam.  They are one of the only coconut oil companies who harvest their coconuts from a wild untouched environment instead of a plantation.  In an area known as Ben Tre, the palm trees and coconuts grown here have been awarded the “Tree of Life” award by the Asia-Pacific Coconut Community recognizing the pristine environment and superior quality of Ben Tre coconuts.  Their coconuts are processed in the same jungle within 5 hours of being picked, which makes our coconut oil extra virgin.  Now what other coconut oil company can say that?

  
Unlike most coconut oils that have a rough texture, cracks within the jar, bleached white color, and an overpowering smell, Skinny Coconut oil has a light fragrance, a smooth texture, and a creamy white color just like the meat within the mature coconuts they use.  Their coconut oil has a very neutral taste so I could eat it right out of the spoon.  What I do to get my daily coconut oil is put it in the refrigerator and then spoon it out.  I'm not a huge fan of the coconut oil taste so I prefer it cold.  Click here to get more ideas on how to incorporate coconut oil in your daily routine.

Coconut oil is Here are some of the beauty and health Benefits of using Skinny Coconut oil:

Metabolism
Due to its high concentration of MCFAs, Skinny speeds up metabolism. Because they are so easily digested, MCFAs are immediately converted to energy, helping maintain a healthy weight. When looking at cultures that eat a coconut-rich diet, we find they are lean and obesity is rare. Even using coconut oil instead of unsaturated oils, such as corn, soy, bean, and canola can help aid in weight loss.

Brain Clarity
Coconut oil provides an alternative fuel to glucose for the brain. This fuel, known as ketones, encourages the healthy execution of important cerebral tasks. Ketones are highly neuro-protective, which leads to improved memory, cognition and attention. Ketones may also help curb cognitive decline in old age.

Heart Health 
Containing greater than 50% lauric acid, Skinny promotes a healthy cardiovascular system. The healthy saturated fat content has shown to protect heart cells, improve the function of the thyroid and help normalize cholesterol levels.

Immune System
Skinny is the earth’s richest source of a special fat called lauric acid. Also found in a mother’s milk, lauric acid helps form the immune system and protects the health of newborns. Replacing processed vegetable oils with MCFA-rich coconut oil promotes lifelong healthy immune function. This nutritious MCFA is found in infant formulas, tube feedings, and is commonly used by physicians to help patients obtain optimal health.

Blood Sugar
MCFAs in Skinny help maintain healthy insulin and blood sugar levels. Processed quickly by the liver, Skinny provides natural, long lasting energy and is much more effective than sugars, grains, and carbohydrates.

Moisturizer
Coconut oil is a fantastic face and body moisturizer.  Just apply as you would a lotion or facial moisturizer.  To moisturize your face, apply just a smudge the size of a grain of rice or smaller.  To moisturize the body, apply liberally anywhere you need moisture.  Coconut is high in essential fatty acids which you can only get from an outside source and give your skin an amazing glow :)
