What is Fractionated Coconut Oil?

What is Fractionated Coconut Oil?

As you've probably noticed, fractionated coconut oil is one of the key ingredients included in our magical Bermuda Dark Spot Treatment. We get asked all the time - is this safe to use on my skin? The answer is yes! Keep reading to understand why and what the difference is between fractionated coconut oil and virgin coconut oil.

What is Fractionated Coconut Oil?

While coconut oil can do wonders for the skin, it can also clog your pores. This is one of the reasons why it can make your skin feel so smooth, as it does not fully absorb and rather just sticks on the surface it is applied to. While fractionated coconut oil is not 100% non-comedogenic, it is easily absorbed and less likely to clog pores or cause breakouts in comparison to virgin coconut oil.

How is Fractionated Coconut Oil made?

Fractionated coconut oil is formed when virgin coconut oil is distilled which allows long-chain fatty acids to separate and solidify for removal. At the end of this process, an ultralight, odorless coconut oil is created and stays in a liquid form. 

What's the difference between Coconut Oil and Fractionated Coconut Oil?

The 3 main differences to highlight when it comes to using fractionated coconut oil in comparison to virgin coconut oil in skincare are:

-Fractionated coconut oil is less likely to clog pores or cause breakouts. Which makes it totally safe to use our Bermuda Oil anywhere on the body.

-Fractionated coconut oil is more easily absorbed by the skin. Both types of coconut oil can be very nourishing and moisturizing.

-Virgin coconut oil is too heavy to use as a body oil.

 

    Should I try skincare products with Fractionated Coconut Oil included in the formula?

    When it comes to trying any new skincare products, you should always do a small patch test whether it is a natural product or not. Give your skin the chance to see if it likes the product. If you have no irritations after testing, find a way to incorporate the product into your skincare routine. 

    How does Bermuda Oil naturally lighten dark spots and hyperpigmentation?

    6 natural ingredients work together to break up the melanin pigments that cause dark spots, uneven skin tones, and hyperpigmentation. The combination of fractionated coconut carrier oil, lemon essential oil, and rare copaiba oil work to even and diffuse the appearance of dark spots and blemishes. Like every skincare product, these results won't happen overnight, but incorporating the Bermuda brightening product into your routine will help address those darker areas you've been wanting to get rid of, regardless of your skin tone! Most users begin seeing results within a 1-3 timeframe. We always recommend documenting your progress so you can visibly see your results.

    Bushbalm Skincare's Bermuda Oil is one of the most popular treatment oils for ingrown hairs and hyperpigmentation which typically sells out on the regular. Bushbalm Skincare is about to launch one of their biggest inventory drops ever and already has thousands of people patiently waiting on the notification list.

    Here are a few reasons why everyone is obsessed with Bermuda Oil, and why it always sells out.

The combination of fractionated coconut carrier oil, lemon essential oil, and rare copaiba oil work to even and diffuse the appearance of dark spots and blemishes.

    4) Bermuda Oil is used daily so users typically buy two to ensure they don't run out

    It's become a staple in so many daily skincare routines and because dark spots can happen all over the body, many use it everywhere. We've had quite a few customers show us before and after photos from applying Bermuda Oil on their faces and the results are crazy. Check this one out below! That said, when applying to the face, please keep in mind that there is a small percentage of fractionated coconut oil, so you should test a small area on the face first as Bermuda Oil is not 100% non-comedogenic.

    5) Bermuda Oil smells amazing

    With a gentle hint of lemon essential oil, Bermuda has a soft refreshing, and clean scent that will make you feel like you are in paradise.

    Why You Get Those Bumps On Your Armpits After Shaving or Waxing

    Why You Get Those Bumps On Your Armpits After Shaving or Waxing

    So you just shaved or waxed your armpits and you can't wait to raise your arms and flaunt your smooth skin...but you now have a bunch of tiny bumps, spots, and redness all over your underarms. Sound familiar?

    Disclaimer: This is totally normal and honestly happens to pretty much everyone, BUT there are ways to quickly treat this, and even better - prevent it.

    Here's what you need to be adding to your skincare, everywhere routine for quick underarm relief of razor burn, bumps, redness, and other skin irritations on your armpits.

    • Exfoliate often. We're talking 2-3 times a week in the shower with one of our natural sugar scrubs. They are super gentle, so if you don't have sensitive skin you can probably do this more often.
    • Apply a Bushbalm Oil daily. Right after the shower when your skin is most absorbent make sure you gently rub some Nude Oil onto your armpits. It's especially important to do this after shaving or waxing. Trust us, there is a reason our Nude Oil is used and sold in over 150 waxing studios across North America.
    • Ditch the razor. At least for as long as you can. Shaving your armpits every day is so hard on your skin. Consider letting your hair breath, grow, or just trim it using our Francesca Electric Trimmer for close grooming and pre-wax preparation.
    • Treat ingrown hairs. Those bumps under your armpits could be a stubborn ingrown hair that won't come out. Apply our Nude Ingrown Hair Treatment Oil right on the spot and watch how quickly that ingrown hair comes to the surface!

    • Armpit hyperpigmentation. Are you noticing your armpits are getting dark, or do you have actual dark spots caused by hair removal or leftover ingrown hair scars? Our Bermuda Oil is a natural dark spot corrector that is a great way to lighten your armpits. This won't work overnight! You need to consistently apply Bermuda Oil.
