Coconut oil is extracted from the white flesh within the coconut.  The oil is a common ingredient in lotion, soap, and other beauty goods.  It also has many uses as a stand alone product.  This includes makeup removal as coconut oil serves the dual purpose of breaking down dirt and water repellent substances while also softening skin.  However, as coconut oil can clog pores, I usually finish with a makeup remover.  Further, coconut oil can be used as a face and body moisturizer, hair conditioner, foot treatment, and more.  See the companies and product links below for more details.
