RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream ($18, saffronrouge.com) is certified organic, unrefined, pure coconut oil that goes beyond it’s ability to be used as a deodorant, just apply to clean, dry underarms. It can also be used to remove makeup because coconut oil has anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, so it easily removes dirt. And because coconut oil is an excellent source for antioxidant protection, you can use this product to skin and body moisturizer to slow down the signs of premature aging.
