Coconut oil is very popular in a jar…but what about coconut oil in a squeezable tube?
Especially a squeezable that is handy for all your personal beauty care needs and can be taken anywhere on the go?
This natural beauty cure-all might seem unexpected, but it has earned its place as a staple in personal care, and rightfully so—coconut oil is rich in minerals and nutrients that hydrate and protect the skin. It absorbs quickly, soaking into the skin to allow for maximum absorption of nutrients to the cells. It’s high in antioxidants that help protect the body from harmful free radicals and helps to aid in the healing of dark spots and acne. It makes a great moisturizer, deep conditioning mask, and makeup remover; you name it.
In short, there’s hardly anything coconut oil can’t do, and we want to take this multi-tasking miracle oil with us everywhere. But, unfortunately, digging your fingers into a jar can get messy, and it’s not always the most portable option.
Enter Coconut oil in a tube. Here are five reasons why it’s a game-changer.
1. Coconut in a Tube is Easier to Use
Coconut oil can replace most of the products in your shower—it makes a great hair mask, body scrub or soak, and makeup remover. But we know it’s not always ideal to bring a glass jar into the bath with you.
Coconut oil in a tube is much easier (not to mention safer) to use in the bathtub. No need to worry about dropping it or getting water into the jar. It also makes a great shaving cream. Because it’s an oil and not a foam, you won’t be left with that dried-out feeling that conventional shaving creams often leave behind. Instead, your legs will be left looking and feel silky smooth.
It also makes a great DIY body scrub when mixed with sea salt, coffee grinds, or brown sugar. You’ll leave the shower feeling smooth and exfoliated without the mess a jar leaves behind.
2. It’s Perfect for Travel
There are a million reasons coconut oil in a tube makes a great travel companion—moisturizing, multi-tasking, and TSA-approved. In addition, its portability makes it the perfect product to take with you on your adventures.
What other product can claim to be a facial moisturizer, cleanser, deep conditioner, sunscreen, shaving oil, and more?
Here are just a few reasons why coconut oil in a tube should be in your travel bag:
The next time you forget to bring mouthwash, swish a swig of coconut oil around in your mouth. Coconut’s natural antifungal and antibacterial properties make it a fantastic addition to your oral care routine. Gargling with the oil for 20 minutes with a spoonful of oil (i.e., oil pulling) can help reduce the number of germs in your mouth, freshen your breath, whiten teeth, and support healthy gums.
Coconut oil also makes for a fantastic addition to your sun care routine. With its natural SPF properties, it can block out some of the sun’s harmful rays and help heal sunburn or other skin ailments. In addition to its moisturizing properties, it’s safe to say coconut oil in a tube can complement your current suncare routine. This is one travel essential you’ll want to remember to pack.
3. Stash it in Your Makeup Bag
It’s nice to throw all of your favorite beauty products into one product in your beauty travel bag. Coconut oil in a tube works great in this scenario, as we love to use it to soothe dry lips and hands or as a cheekbone highlighter, and it fits perfectly in our purses.
It also works well for taming flyaway hairs, adding some shine to dry ends, and even to help brush brows into place when you’re in a pinch and as a cuticle oil for an on-the-go mani.
On a flight and in need of some hydration? Grab your coconut oil in a tube and lather up. This natural miracle can make a great pre-or post-flight skin mask or under-eye cream. The harsh cabin air won’t stand a chance against this skin guard.
4. It’s More Hygienic
Since we love to apply coconut oil to our face and body and even use it for oral care, getting it in a tube is a safe and hygienic option. Rather than repeatedly dip your fingers into the same jar, you can squeeze out the perfectly portioned product from the tube.
This is perfect for first-aid, as coconut oil in a tube can be evenly dispensed to provide the perfect product to help aid and soothe things like sunburn, bug bites, scars, cuts, and bruises. When you have this all-natural skin saver within reach, you won’t need to worry about using harsh chemicals on your family or friends.
5. It’s Great for Mini-Emergencies
As we mentioned, coconut oil in a tube is excellent for replacing conventional beauty products in a rush. But did you know that you can also use it as a stain remover?
That’s right—coconut oil can help remove stains and dyes from the fabric. It effectively removes tough stains while being gentle enough on your clothes. Just add a dab of oil to the stain and gently massage it with a bit of water, and voila! Your garments will be stain-free. It’s the perfect product to stash in your clutch on a night out or for emergencies.
More About Coconut Oil in a Tube
Coconut oil reacts to temperature, so it may harden in colder temps and take on a more liquid consistency in the heat. Therefore, coconut oil is best enjoyed at room temperature for optimal results.
If you use coconut oil in a tube, take care of the consistency of the coconut before squeezing it out of the tube.
It’s important to note that not all coconut oils are created equal—look for minimally processed, raw, and organic coconut oil, like Kapuluan.
The better quality of your coconut oil, the better it will care for you.
