Our 5 Favorite Products Formulated With Coconut Oil
A skin care staple— and an ingredient most beauty editors are obsessed with—coconut oil is a hydrating powerhouse that can nourish the skin, fight off free radicals, and more. Jam-packed with antioxidants like vitamin E, coconut oil can help shield the skin from environmental aggressors, hydrate a dry complexion, and may also play a major role in anti-aging skin care routines. When we aren’t using coconut oil from the jar, we are looking for skin care products that are formulated and infused with the beauty-benefiting oil. Ahead, we share our five favorite products that any coconut oil enthusiast needs in their beauty routines.

One of our favorite ways to use coconut oil is in an easy-to-use, travel-friendly balm form.
