Where to use Coconut Oil (Solid)
Refined Coconut Oil (Cocus nucifera) is the most popular oil/fat used in soap production. But it doesn't stop there.
Coconut Oil is excellent when used in hair conditioners; combined with Cetearyl alcohol, it creates the perfect texture for application and conditioning.
Coconut Oil can be used directly on the skin; however, when incorporated into formulations, it adds the natural antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties to your finished formulation. In addition, it will increase the viscosity and improve the flow of your finished product.
A small amount of Coconut Oil is often used in lip balms to enhance the moisturisation properties.
Coconut Oil is a fun inclusion in Bath Bombs, where the oil will readily disperse from the centre of the Bomb if enclosed.
Coconut Oil makes for a beautiful hair pomade, combine with a little Cetyl alcohol and stearic acid to improve and adjust the texture and provide an increase in the melting point temperature.
Increase softness, smoothness, flow, consistency and add natural properties
Coconut Oil melts really easily!
Remember, no matter what your use for Coconut Oil, it has a super low melting point of 24c, so it may need some packaging protection during the summer.

This product is amazing. I use it as a moisturiser/conditioner etc but it has so many uses. The fact that it doesn’t clog your pores is even better. I’ll be ordering again as Naturally Thinking service is great too.
