Crazy for coconuts! It seems everywhere you turn, the last few years coconut oil has been all the rage. From bulletproof coffee to DIY coconut oil beauty recipes, the benefits of coconut oil are endless.
I discovered Kopari Beauty a few years ago and fell in love with their coconut crush scrub, coconut melt and lip glossy. Now I use their oil pullers weekly (watch my video diary on oil pulling here) along with their deodorant, and skincare products. Kopari is a coconut oil based beauty brand focused on clean, toxic free, vegan, and easy to use products for your carefree lifestyle. Today I’m sharing with you there coconut skincare products for healthy, hydrated, and glowing skin.
WHY KOPARI COCONUT PRODUCTS ARE BETTER
Coconut oil has been a trending ingredient for some time now in the beauty space, but Kopari was really the first to bring it to mass market with easy to use products that are pure and effective. The coconut oil Kopari uses for their Coconut Melt is 100% unrefined, virgin, coconut oil for the coconut purist. To make their Coconut Balm, Coconut Sheer Oil, and Coconut Body Glow, they put this same oil through a natural straining process using activated charcoal to remove some of the heavy metals that are naturally found in soil to better complement the all natural ingredients included in these products. Believe me quality in coconut oil makes a difference. You want the best.
IT’S THAT GOOD
Kopari Coconut Melt is 100% organic, virgin coconut oil with no additional fragrances at all. Thier Coconut Balm, 'Save Face' Oil, Coconut Face Cream and Coconut Lip Love are infused with natural coconut vanilla extract, while the Coconut Rose Toner and Coconut Cleansing Oil are infused with aromatic rose extract. The Coconut Body Glow and Coconut Body Oil share their coconut gardenia fragrance, and the Coconut Crush Scrub and Coconut Body Milk share their sweet coconut milk fragrance. All of the products are tested to be hypoallergenic and are formulated to be phthalate-free. I'm incredibly sensitive to synthetic fragrances and these products smell wonderful without being offensive or harmful. Yippee!
Kopari also does not formulate their products with any of the bad stuff like: sayonara, silicones, and sulfates. They are cruelty free and vegan. All products are made with a sustainable, solar-powered lab in Southern California!
Best part? All coconut oil is sustainably sourced from the Philippines. By sourcing there oil in the Philippines they are a part of a movement launched by Cargill, GIZ and BASF in 2013 to improve the livelihoods of Philippine farmers. The project not only improves the livelihoods of the farmers (2,500 and counting), but also introduces the Sustainable Agricultural Network (SAN) standard, which is the basis for certification by the Rainforest Alliance. After participating in agricultural training programs, today over 2,500 small farmers have seen an improvement in their living conditions and region
KOPARI COCONUT SKINCARE ROUTINE
Kopari makes your skincare routine simple. This is a great way to use the benefits of coconut oil without having to DIY everything.
STEP 1: CLEANSE
I talk about how important it is to cleanse your skin every night because of all the pollution, spf, makeup, and build up your skin accumulates throughout the day. Double cleansing is my favorite way to cleanse. This usually means starting with an oil cleanse to help break down the day, specifically SPF and makeup.
Kopari’s Coconut Cleansing oil $32
is perfect as a first step cleanser for those who enjoy double cleansing or as an all in one for those too lazy to bother. I also love using the cleansing oil as a morning cleanse because it helps remove the products and sweat from sleep, but does not strip or dry out my skin.
STEP 2: TONE
For as long as I can remember, my mom always stressed how important it is to tone after cleansing. Toners are suppose to balance your skin after cleansing and prep it for your serums and moisturizers.
Coconut Rose Toner $24
From Kopari is soothing, hydrating, and rich in antioxidants that helps to reduce the appearance of pores, even skin tone, and draw out impurities leaving skin hydrated and healthy.
STEP 3: MOISTURIZE
Moisturizing your skin is so important! Even oily skin needs to hydrate.
The Coconut Face Cream $38
from Kopari is full of antioxidants and fatty acids to replenish nutrient levels, strengthen skin's protective barrier, and deeply hydrate for a more youthful appearance. I have combination skin with extreme oily areas and dry patches, this moisturizer hydrates the areas I need and won’t clog my oily areas. It’s also lightweight and absorbs nicely, perfect for under SPF and makeup.
Coconut Lip Glossy $12
We can’t forget our lips! I feel like my lips always get chapped if I don’t use a really good lip balm. The Kopari lip glossy is ultra hydrating and leaves a beautiful shine on the lip. My favorite way to use this is over a little lip liner to create the perfect natural lip.
