With this virgin coconut “oil-rounder”, you can slather, drizzle and sauté your way to better skin and nutrition! 
Our Know-It-Oil clinically-validated, USDA-certified organic virgin coconut oil (VCO) is smarter than the average “care.” Besides being awarded and having multiple published studies, it’s cold-and-first-pressed: not extracted by heat and made fresh within one day of harvest. These are a few of the many ways you can use this “genius” in a bottle.

Summer Rubbin’: MASSAGE OIL

Sunnin’ or shunnin’, Know-It-Oil makes for seriously yummin’ massagin’! Sans even natural fragrances + being non-comedogenic, you can really relax knowing you’re reducing the risk of post-massage rashes and breakouts. A massage heats up the oil, too, which makes for better absorption of all this oil’s phenomenally hydrating, cellular renewing, anti-aging, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Oil-Skin-Oil, An Awesome DAILY MOISTURIZER

With fatty acids that are native to skin, VCO replaces lipids lost to aging and dehydration. In skin cells, it creates a healthier balance of saturated-to-unsaturated fatty acids and repairs damage from aging, the sun and other environmental factors. Rich in growth factors, VCO provides anti-aging benefits, too, like enabling skin to form more anti-inflammatory cell hormones (and inflammation is the reason for so much skin damage, from aging to acne and infection).

Forsoothe: SKIN RECOVERY

Due to its extreme gentleness and anti-inflammatory properties, VCO is an excellent soother of ailments.

  • For bad sunburns or rashes, try a cold compress (soak a towel in cold water mixed with VCO).
  • For wounds, try flushing out the lesion with VCO (by direct pouring or with cotton soaked in VCO). It’s less painful than harsh antiseptics and even soap and water. Follow with an antibacterial like The Big, Brave Boo-Boo Balm.

Hair on the side of caution: DEEP CONDITIONING

Hair gotten fried in the sun? Try combing VCO through wet hair after conditioning and wrap in a warm towel or plastic cling wrap. Let sit for 15-20 minutes. Rinse.

Grease A Palm(ito): SALAD + COOKING OIL

Most of VCO’s fatty acids are medium chain, meaning they’re processed by the body more quickly and contribute less to body fat. Because VCO is more textured, with a better mouth feel, you need less of it in cooking and baking (under a teaspoonful in salads). And, being cholesterol- and trans-fat-free, and low in carbs and linoleic acid, it is excellent for your heart.

Oral Fix-ation: HEALING GARGLE

VCO has anti-viral properties so it can help speed up the healing process for canker and cold sores, herpetic sores and sore throats. Take a tablespoon or two and gargle frequently.
