I've seen numerous references to using coconut oil on the skin, with people mentioning its rapid absorption and lack of oily residue. Unfortunately, I haven't found that to be the case. I had ordered some oil from www.coconutoil-online.com and when I applied it, I found it left a residue that lasted for hours. I have been in the habit of covering myself with body lotion everyday, so I thought something with the benefits and smell of coconut oil would be great. But so far this doesn't look like something I can really use for that purpose. Anyone have any input? Why has my experience been so different from that of others here?
Thanks to everyone for all your help. I hope to contribute more to this forum I so recently discovered. :-)
