Know-It-Oil

Know-It-Oil

Clinically-validated, 100% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. Smarter than the average "care." Panacea may be too strong a word, but only just. Cholesterol + trans fat-free. Cold-first-pressed, meaning it's as fresh-from-the-tree and unprocessed as possible. It's why our oil is so clear and aroma-free.


Smart, comprehensive care:

  • An incomparable moisturizer with fatty acids native to skin.
  • Helps repair damage from environmental factors.
  • Improves cell wall saturation. Abundant in medium-chain triglycerides + saturated fatty acids.
  • Helps reduce inflammation + replace lost lipids.
  • For all skin types, even extremely dry and/or medically-managed conditions.
  • Non-greasy: soaks in quickly with no sticky afterfeel.
  • Non-comedogenic.

One for the dresser and one for the fridge. On and in. This food-grade, organic skinutraceutical is a true "oil"-rounder - as great for skin on the outside as it is for skin (and cells, and heart, and overall health) on the inside.

Another Disinfection Technique: Wash Your Hands, Use Monolaurin…and Virgin Coconut Oil Your Nose!

by Laura Verallo de Bertotto, Contributor.

With new bugs and superbugs, we’re looking for more ways to prevent infection. Improving our nutrition and overall well being is important (which includes lessening stress and getting enough sleep). Another is increasing our probiotic intake. Some classic best practices include frequent and proper hand washing, upping your use of hand sanitizer, and wiping down surfaces with alcohol or bleach. But while alcohol isn’t an allergen, it is drying and all that sanitation can cause skin problems, particularly on your hands. Virgin coconut oil (VCO) and its derivatives like monolaurin could be just what you need to stay safer while keeping your skin comfortable and healthy.

Are All Coconut Oils The Same?

Like all foods and most cosmetic ingredients, there are differences between coconut oils.

RBD coconut oil is refined, bleached and deodorized. Refined means more processed: coconuts are left out in the sun or put in ovens to dry, then sent to a refinery for oil extraction with heat and/or chemicals. Bleaching: think white rice, white sugar and white pasta. Deodorizing creates a tasteless oil, popular for dishes where the flavor of purer, less processed coconut oils may be less preferable.
