Best Coconut Oil Moisturizer
Hi there,

My name is Heather Green and I’m a nutrition expert and skincare enthusiast. Two years ago I found myself stuck in this crazy skincare routine using so many products and I really wasn’t happy with the results. The natural ones smelled bad and didn’t work and the ones with nasty chemicals seemed to work a little, but I didn’t like what I was putting on my face. I loved plain coconut oil on my skin, but it was such a greasy mess and would stain my pillowcases and anything I wore. I started looking online for companies that produced skincare products and it seemed they all made similar products with the same base ingredients - and none of them had coconut oil.

So, I decided to make my own! I ordered a bunch of natural ingredients like coconut oil, aloe vera gel and sweet almond oil. I used a hand mixer and started blending things together. I took my favorite mixture and used it day and night for a month. Everyone started giving me compliments on my glowing skin. I had always had mild acne, but it was completely gone. The wrinkles around my eyes were barely visible. It was amazing! Better than anything I had used before.

I thought if I loved it then maybe other people would love it so I ordered more of the ingredients, put them in some plastic jars with labels I made on my printer and listed them eBay. I got such great feedback and reviews that I decided to open up a store and here we are today!

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil I think coconut oil is the best thing for you skin, so of course it's the main ingredient. Used by itself as a face moisturizer, coconut oil is extremely effective. It is known as the perfect hydrator for your skin. Saturated fats act like a lipid film and prevent the loss of skin moisture.

Coconut oil is pressed from the meat of young coconuts; its high saturated fat content has emollient properties for skin. Coconut oil is a rich source of medium-chain fatty acids, which are essential for healthy functioning at the cellular level. Contrary to what you may believe, an abundance of natural plant based fats in the diet is vital for healthy organ function, including the brain, the most important organ of the body, and the skin, the largest organ of the body.

Some health benefits of natural coconut oil:

-- Lauric acid, which comprises half of the fatty acids in coconut oil, is a key ingredient in soaps. It is used to treat all kinds of infections, including skin blemishes. Imagine lauric acid eroding the cell membrane of acne-causing bacteria and dissolving it.

-- Vitamin E in coconut oil acts as a potent antioxidant and can heal skin damage and prevent skin irregularities.

-- Proteins present in coconut oil are necessary for skin cell metabolic processes. Proteins promote rejuvenation and repair by speeding up the process of cell renewal where old dead cells are replaced with new healthy ones.

-- Coconut oil is the perfect base for a natural exfoliant. Apply with a loofah or any mild abrasive cloth, and wipe away to reveal smoother skin and smaller pores. Coconut oil soothes irritated skin conditions, such as dry skin from eczema and psoriasis.

sweet almond oil

Sweet Almond Oil The sweet almond oil in Islands Harvest Face Cream is a rich liquid bath of skin-repairing ingredients including triglycerides and fatty acids, vitamin E, proteins, potassium and zinc.

Below the surface of a beautiful complexion, collagen forms an even layer and acts as a padding that keeps the skin taut, yet supple. Fine wrinkles and sagging start to appear as we age because of thinning of the skin and unevenness in the collagen padding underneath. Oxidation caused by excess exposure to sun, tobacco smoke, dehydration and age can also break down collagen faster. Proper care and protection can help slow down collagen deterioration. Vitamin E from sweet almond oil is one of the most potent antioxidants known; antioxidants can help repair cellular damage under the skin. Also, the natural almond oil in Islands Harvest Coconut Oil Facial Cream prevents dehydration on the surface of the skin by locking moisture in.

Almond oil is an excellent base for massage oil for all skin types because it is absorbent, hypoallergenic and non-fragrant. So, in effect, using our product has double benefits, because not only do the ingredients of almond oil have restorative qualities for your complexion, but also by gently massaging Islands Harvest Face Cream onto your face, you are stimulating circulation and promoting healthy cell function.

Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera Gel Gel from the succulent plant Aloe Vera has been known for ages for its curative properties and for skin hydration.

Research has shown Aloe Vera has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial qualities with similar properties to vitamin C, green tea, pomegranate, and many other antioxidants. Pure Aloe Vera juice is a curative for digestive ailments.

Aloe Vera serves as a water-binding agent for skin due to its sterol and polysaccharide content. Just like coconut oil, Aloe Vera can be used to help heal chronic skin conditions like acne, eczema and psoriasis. Isolated components of Aloe Vera, such as glycoprotein, may have some effectiveness for wound healing and as an anti-irritant, soothing and moisturizing skin naturally.

So many people have fallen in love with our natural solution for healthy glowing skin. You’re going to love it too. What are you waiting for?

I'm so happy with this product. Ive tried a lot of natural products and i feel like they don't work as well as the ones with strong chemicals. I saw a difference in my skin with this one and its not super expensive either. The jar is kinda small but a little goes a long way. the formula is smooth and creamy and goes on well. I'm very happy. Will order more!

I got this as a gift for christmas from my mother in law. She said she uses it too and likes it. I've been using it for about a week. (I wanted to finish my old Eminence moisturizer first) I'm happy that I see a difference and my skin is more hydrated than when I was using the one form Eminence. My skin is really happy :)

I like the way the cream absorbs quickly and is non greasy, unlike straight up coconut oil. Because I stick to only natural healthcare remedies, I checked out every hard-to-read ingredient in Islands Harvest Coconut Oil Facial Cream and they are all beneficial and necessary to making a good,safe blend. I am happy with this product. Shipping was quick too.
