Are you looking for the perfect DIY coconut oil body butter recipe? At Kapuluan Coconut, we’ve picked our favorite recipe to share with you. 

As you may know by now, there are so many ways to use coconut oil for your body. We suggest using this coconut oil body butter to keep your skin smooth and moisturized. How does it do this? Because the saturated fats in coconut oil prevent moisture loss through your skin’s pores. The result is giving your skin a healthy, smooth, and even tone.

Bonus: By making a homemade batch of coconut oil body butter, you don’t have to question what’s in the ingredients, and you’re not spending money on crazy expensive products!
