Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil: The All Season Hydrator

As one who has used an almost immeasurable amount of body moisturizers to keep our skin hydrated throughout the year and through the various and vastly different seasons, we can 100 percent say there is nothing like the hydrating and protective benefits of coconut oil. Of course, the best coconut oil to use is a high-quality one that leaves the raw nutrients intact; that coconut oil is 100% virgin coconut oil, Skinny & Co Coconut Oil.

Skinny & Co Coconut Oil is the only raw, 100% alkaline coconut oil in the world; it is made with hand-picked wild-Harvested, not plantation grown coconuts. What makes Skinny & Co Coconut Oil even more amazing is that is cold-processed, not just cold pressed, thanks to their patent-pending Nutralock System. You already know coconut oil has over a hundred uses. You can cook with it, substituting it for butter and other oils, condition your hair, Oil pulling, and of course use it as a moisturizer on your face and body.

You will immediately notice the difference between Skinny & Co Coconut Oil and other brands. It absorbs much better into your skin and keeps it hydrated and moisturized all day, even on the coldest winter days. We’ve been using Skinny & Co Coconut Oil for two seasons now and our skin couldn’t be happier. It’s become our go-to lip, scalp, and skin moisturizer, makeup remover, cuticle hydrator, and cooking oil.

The 100% raw coconut oil isn’t the only product we’re loving from Skinny & Co Coconut Oil. You’ll love the Coconut Oil Bar Soaps (available in five scents); the deeply hydrating Skinny Shampoo Bars that delivers intense hydration to your hair without creating excess oils (your hair will love you for this); the Whipped Body Butter that’s perfect to use as an all over moisturizer, hair mask or conditioner, or shaving cream; the Skinny & Co. Sugar Scrub, a pH balanced scrub that can be used as an all-over body exfoliant, prep for self-tanner, and as a lip scrub; and a Clarifying Moisturizing Facial Oil for blemish-prone and oily skin types. We know what you’re thinking – why would I put oil on my oily skin? This 100% oil moisturizer helps clarify and balance by removing impurities and congestion from the surface of the skin. These wonderful products are just some of the great skincare products from Skinny & Co, check out their site to see more.

Are you ready to give your hair back the strength, moisture, and beauty it knows with Novex Hair Care?

Novex Brazilian Keratin

Keratin is the primary protein found in hair particles and is essential for healthy hair. However, 70-80% of the keratin in hair is lost due to blow drying, curling irons, straighteners, sun rays, excessive heat and dryness and other harmful chemicals. Novex Hair Care Keratin reinforces the structure of the hair and results in shiny, soft hair with natural movement.

Novex Olive Oil

With an innovative formula using the finest Portuguese Olive Oil, Novex Olive Oil treats dry hair by giving deep hydration and protection. Ideal for curly and wavy hair, the family of Olive Oil Shampoo and Conditioning Treatments will provide all day shine, protection, and life into curls.

Novex Bamboo Sprout

With super concentrated actives from Bamboo and enriched with a mixture of amino acids, minerals and Vitamins A, B and C, Novex Hair Care Bamboo is ideal for broken/weak hair that needs an extra dose of strength and growth. The shampoo and conditioning treatments are specifically developed to naturally strengthen the hair and stimulate the roots for growth.

Novex Argan Oil

Enriched with pure Argan Oil from Morocco, Novex Hair Care Argan Oil is full of powerful moisture and natural antioxidants for the hair. Ideal for straight hair and extensions, Novex Argan Oil repairs damages on the cellular membrane of the hair particles, increasing the strength of the capillary fiber and restoring shine and smoothness on hair. Split ends are reversed and hair is no longer frizzy, dry or dull.

Novex My Curls

Novex My Curls is specially created to take curls and give them movement and lots of hydration. Since curly hair requires a lot of moisture, Novex combined 7 hydrating oils into the My Curls products. These include Olive, Argan, Ojon, Monoi, Coconut, Shea Butter and Moringa Oils. This special mix of oils will bring curly hair intense hydration, nutrition, anti-frizz and spectacular shine. Cranberry, the small but powerful fruit, also helps shape the curls perfectly while maintaining shine.

Novex Coconut Oil

The newest Novex Hair Care products are enriched with the purest Coconut Oil from Brazil and Vitamin E, resulting in an intense treatment to repair dry and undisciplined hair. It restores shine and prolongs a smoother and straight effect on the hair.

Could your hair use a little Brazilian beauty escape and rescue from hair damage? Then you will love these Novex Hair Care products.
