For those of you new to the world of all-natural oils, fractionated coconut oil is a bit different than many of the other coconut oils you might be used to hearing about.
Fractionated means that this coconut oil was created by isolating the medium chain triglycerides, which creates a stable, odorless, colorless oil. Fractionated coconut oil is also found in many hair and beauty products, often under the name "Caprylic Triglyceride."
What I love first and foremost about Pure Body Naturals Fractionated Coconut Oil is that it is odorless and colorless. This gives it incredible versatility in creating skin and hair products. You can add fragrance using essential oils and color it using all-natural color agents, such as vegetables and/or fruit rinds.
You can rest assured that you're using an all-natural product, as this Fractionated Coconut Oil is free of additives and impurities and is hypoallergenic. It's perfectly safe for you and your body. As a matter of fact, many people use fractionated coconut oil on their children!
Below, check out my recipe for an All-Natural Body Scrub. You'll find that Pure Body Naturals Fractionated Coconut Oil mixes very easily, which is important, especially when using it as a carrier oil for topical application, diffusers, or creating all-natural hair and body products).
All-Natural Body Scrub Recipe
You Will Need:

Pour about a cup and a half of natural sea salt into a small container.

This amazing body scrub is gentle enough to be used up to three times per week, and leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth. To use, simply scoop out a small amount with your fingers, apply it to your trouble areas (or all over) and rub in a circular motion and then rinse! It's that easy! You will immediately notice a difference in the feel of your skin.
Pure Body Naturals' Fractionated Coconut Oil isn't greasy and can be applied directly to the skin as a moisturizer or massage oil. You needn't mix it with anything if you don't want to! There are so many ways to use this oil, including as a shaving cream for a close shave and moisturizer, diaper rash cream, and even as a static reducer.
