    Hi SADS, our coconut oil eye cream moisturizes the under-eye area. Be sure to avoid contact with eyes.

    Do you put it around the eye area? , would be nice if the directions on here were more accurate.

    Hi Debbie. Coconut oil is the most stable of all the food/nut oils on the market. Its susceptibility to oxidation (the reaction which causes rancidity) is very low. The shelf life on all of our coconut oil products is one to two years. So, if nothing is done to the oil, like extreme heating or adding some other ingredients to the oil, coconut oil will not go rancid after 24 hours, and in fact has a very long shelf life even after being opened and used.

    A friend recommended coconut oil as a facial moisturizer. I liked it on my face. I happened to mention this to an mathematician at a local cosmetics store. She was quick to inform me that coconut oil goes rancid after 24 hours, which was grossly frightening. Please advise regarding this claim.

    Hi Veronica, this eye cream recipe is great for hydration. Essential oils are highly concentrated, and in their purest form should not be used around the eyes. The coconut and Vitamin E oils in this recipe act as “carrier oils” to efficiently dilute the essential oil for safe use, however we recommend patch testing this recipe if you have sensitive skin. Our essential oil recommendations include Frankincense, Sandalwood, German Chamomile, or Lavender.

    I’m sorry, was there a response as to what this eye cream is for? Also, you say your favorite essential oil but shouldn’t there be some kind of cautionary statement to go along with that? I mean I’m not 100% sure but I didn’t think essential oils even if diluted should go on the eyelid and I don’t think all of them or any one of whoever’s choosing would be safe around the eyes.

    So is this just for moisturizing or wrinkles or what?

    Can’t wait to try it

    From the reading on coconut oil I would use organic virgin cold pressed coconut oil .No chemicals are used and many of the good things are left in the oil.More expensive but safer for you.

  • Ardy on 10.02.15

    I have a lot of chemical allergies, so wonder if just using the Lou Ana Coconut Oil is safe to use on my very dry eyelids? I’m concerned about if it would affect vision if any of it got into the eyes?
