Why We Love Coconut Oil & Why You Should Too

By:  Jessica Z. 

Who isn't coco-nutty about coconut oil???   

Here at EXSENS, we absolutely love coconut oil because of its myriad useful applications in natural skincare. We are particularly smitten with the use of coconut oil as a daily moisturizer for nourishing dry skin because of its delicious summery scent and the way it leaves our skin super-smooth and soft.   

But did you know you can use coconut oil as an intimate moisturizer both before and after shaving or waxing to soothe irritation and inflammation?  How about coconut oil as toothpaste? Or deodorant?  

We wanted to share our love of coconut oil by giving you quick, easy access to some great information and ideas.  Check out these 3 articles to learn more about both the scientific properties of the coconut as well as lots of suggestions on how to incorporate coconut oil into your daily self-care routine:
