Just a Fraction of Coconut Oil, Please!

If you haven't noticed our Just Added section of our site yet, you're definitely missing out! We are constantly adding new products each day, and I love seeing the latest offerings we have. My new favorite that we just got in is our Fractionated Coconut Oil by Soothing Touch. I know that coconut oil is definitely a craze that's gained quite the popularity over the past years in the beauty industry, but did you know that there are two different types? I'm sure you're used to using products that contain virgin coconut oil. Have you heard of fractionated coconut oil? It's exactly how it sounds, but with even more beautifying benefits! I'll explain why below!..

Fractionated coconut oil is processed differently than regular coconut oil. The reason being is that the oil has been through hydrolysis then steam distilled to remove the long chain triglycerides. As a result, only the medium chain triglycerides are left which makes for a highly saturated oil. This means the oil is even more abundant in antioxidants and its natural disinfecting effects! Unlike virgin coconut oil, which solidifies in colder temperatures, fractionated coconut oil remains in liquid form. This is great for use as a massage oil, and to blend with essentials oils or even for use in handmade lotions and soaps. Another plus is that this type of oil has a longer shelf life and stability which makes it cost effective for your business.



If you're in need of a new oil for your spa, I highly recommend trying out our Soothing Touch Fractionated Massage Coconut Oil on your clients! It is paraben free and unscented so you can customized the oil to whichever scent your client prefers. Unlike virigin coconut oil, this oil does not leave a greasy feel either. I promise your clients will love it!

Beautiful with Coconut Oil - 15 Uses for Coconut Oil in Your Spa!

We all know coconut oil is one of the most beloved and versatile carrier oils available, and is becoming an increasingly popular ingredient for skin care products. But why do we love coconut oil so much? Fall in love with coconut oil all over again reading these 15 uses for this nectar of the earth:



15 Uses for Coconut Oil in Your Spa
1. Cuticle Oil — Softens cuticles while soothing hangnails. Instead of expensive cuticle oil blends, apply coconut oil after your manicures.
2. Eye Makeup Remover — Use it to remove makeup, even waterproof mascara. Rather than using chemical-laden removers on your clients, try rubbing their lashes with a bit of coconut oil!
3. Deep Conditioner – Amazing conditioning treatment. Offer your clients a pre-shampoo hair repair mask prior to their cut/style.
4. Sunscreen (SPF) — This might be hard to believe, but coconut oil has an SPF of 4-6. Due to its antioxidant and moisturizing properties, coconut oil protects the skin when exposed to UV rays. Offer your clients protection products boasting coconut oil as an ingredient.
5. Body Scrub — Take your body scrubs to the next level by whipping up personalized body scrubs - coconut oil, mixed with salt or sugar, scented with essential oils....perfect!
6. Lip balm — Hydrating on dry or cracked lips. Add the finishing touch to your facials by moisturizing your clients' lips, too!
7. Foot/Heel softener — Apply to feet during a pedicure, wrap in plastic wrap and apply heat. Softer skin, happy client!
8. Facial Cleanser — Try going all-natural by cleansing with oil. Coconut oil is a favorite for this method.
9. Body Butter –  Give your body scrub clients the perfect finishing touch by whipping coconut oil into a butter. Use complementary essential oils to perfectly scent it, too!
10. Aftershave — Men can use coconut oil on their face after shaving to soothe and calm the skin. Also, incredible on legs and the bikini area.
11. Massage Oil — Coconut Oil has a terrific glide to it. Warm some coconut oil until it is liquid and give your client the relaxing massage they have been looking forward to!
12. Elbows — Even if your clients come in for a facial, give them a (moisture) boost for their elbows, too!
13. Stretch Mark Oil — For all your clients who are mommies or mommies-to-be, keep some coconut oil on hand to apply to any stretch marks they have. Keep some more on hand to sell to them to use at home, too!
14. Fades Age Spots  Apply to clients' age spots, and instruct them on continuing treatment at home to see the best results!
15. Hair Dye Assistance — Coconut oil makes an excellent barrier to protect the skin from dripping dye during the coloring process.

Well there you have it, some of my favorite used for this amazing Oil. What is your favorite use for it?

The Secret's Out on Liquid Gold: Moroccan Argan Oil... Amazing for Skin, Hair and Nails

In a previous blog (Hyaluronic Acid - Nature's Face Lift!), I discussed the amazing benefits of hyaluraonic acid, and what this ingredient means for your client's skin. I have found another ingredient that is equally as amazing: Argan Oil!

This oil, which is hand-pressed by Berber women in Morocco, is often referred to as "liquid gold." This beauty secret has been used by Moroccan women for centuries. It has incredible benefits for the skin, hair, and nails. Extremely high in Vitamin E, Argan oil also contains both Omega 3 and Omega 9 fatty acids. These unsaturated fatty acids work wonders to improve hair and nail strength. Argan Oil also contains phyosterols, which helps promote new collagen production, reduce redness, and improves elasticity.

Benefits for Hair
  • Improves Elasticity
  • Repairs Split Ends
  • Naturally Hydrating
  • Smoothes, without weighing down
  • Restores Luster and Shine




Benefits for Skin
  • Moisturizes without clogging pores
  • Helps restore Natural pH of Skin
  • Regulates sebum to reduce oiliness
  • Neutralizes free radicals
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines

The only hair-styling product I use is Marrakesh Oil, which is a blend of Moroccan Argan Oil and Hemp Seed Oil. This light-weight oil moisturizes my hair, makes it beautifully shiny and manageable, and smells delicious! This is a great product to use in your salon, and retail to your clients! Everyone will be thrilled with the results!

Extended Vacation's Moroccan Mineral Signature Tanning Mist also features Moroccan Argan Oil. This tanning mist was specially formulated with many luxurious emollients to moisturize the skin while giving it a beautiful glow. For all you spray-tanners out there, look no further than Moroccan Mineral Signature Tanning Mist!

Old School Cool: Dr. Bronner's Multi-Use Soap

When performing aesthetic services, you go out of your way to ensure that you use the only the finest and most effective products on your clients. The goal is not only to provide an excellent service, but also immediate gratification with smoother skin, finer lines, and reduced puffiness. Unfortunately, you cannot always be there to ensure that your clients are taking care of their skin at home to the same degree that you do in your aesthetic services.

A fantastic product line to retail to your clients and help guide them towards taking care of their skin is the Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap Skin Care Line. Unlike most of the commercial brands of soaps that you clients will find in their local drug stores, all of the Dr. Bronner's soaps are formulated with pure and organic ingredients. Plus, they are completely devoid of all of the harsh chemicals, parabens, preservatives and dyes that most products contain today.

As a personal testimonial, I am completely obsessed with Dr. Bronner's Organic Castile Liquid Lavender Soap. I have always been on a constant quest to find the best shower gel, shampoo, soap etc. The search has been fun but it is no longer possible for me to use any other soap out there. I use the liquid lavender as a shower gel - the lather is completely luxurious - shampoo, shaving cream and even laundry detergent. The Peppermint Liquid Soap is also fantastic to use as a toothpaste!

Which types of facial and body soaps do you recommend your clients use at home?
