It's Friday afternoon, I'm at the Natural Products Expo in Anaheim and it is crowded. I mean, there are people to the left of me, right of me, in front, behind... vendors everywhere!!! It was awesome. It was amazing being surrounded by a sea of people who just wanted to get more information on how to be healthy, be engulfed in a natural lifestyle and were hungry for the tools to get there.
So, here I am, in the sea of awesomeness, but it is starting to feel a little claustrophobic. I start to head towards the doors, feeling quite satisfied with the Expo and the brands I picked up and all of a sudden, I see this amazing kiosk set up. It's tall, full of dark wood, palm trees a bunch of white jars all around it and all I can see is 'COCONUT'. Obviously, my decision to leave quickly subsided and as I felt like I just walked into an oasis of peace, beach and beauty.
The brand (that seduced me so with their beachy, come-hither booth) was Skinny & Co. It's a family owned company (founded by brothers) who found a way to make coconut oil without solvents or chemicals in Vietnam.
Turns out, they are a cruelty-free Leaping Bunny certified company that prides in their utilization of innovative, wild harvested, single origin coconut oil. Ourpatented Nutralock System crafts the coconut oil under 97 degrees F, which leaves all of the raw nutrients intact. This process results in coconut oil with higher levels of medium chain fatty acids and allows the body to absorb the oil much easier, enhancing its effectiveness.
Their prime ingredient in all of our products is our patented high-quality coconut oil. The line may be considered minimal, but every product is thoughtfully crafted and effective. The core collection consists of coconut oil, oil pulling mouth wash, whipped body butter, facial oil, lip balm, shampoo and soap bars, and sugar scrub. The body butter contains 100% raw coconut oil, organic almond oil, and a blend of essential oils.
I ended up speaking with Joy, the mother of the brothers, who received her NMD (naturopathic medical degree) and fell in love with her. She had so much light and love, was ecstatic about the product and so was everyone else.
