Cult-Favorite Kopari Beauty Just Launched a New Must-Try Collection
By Brittany Burhop Fallon, Beauty Director |
If you're a lover of coconut oil and you've yet to try Kopari Beauty (its Coconut Melt is dreamy), you now have more options than just body products. Branching into facial care, the brand is launching four new products—three for skin and one for lips—that are formulated to enhance the natural qualities of coconut oil and deliver a vast range of benefits.
“Coconut oil is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, delicate and moisturizing, and so we wanted to further expand our selection of premium coconut oil–based products to include a full-step facial care line,” says Kopari cofounder Kiana Cabell.

Three of the four new launches are designed to be used in a step-by-step skin care regimen that Cabell says is easy-to-use and ideal for all skin types. First, you remove makeup and unwanted dirt with the Coconut Cleansing Oil, which gently cleanses your skin using rice oil, green tea oil and antioxidants. "Our cleansing oil is great because it gently takes your entire face of makeup off without harsh chemical ingredients that strip the skin of its natural moisture," adds Cabell.
Next up is the Coconut Rose Toner. "The toner not only smells amazing, but also contains a unique ingredient called witch hazel. Unlike harsh alcohols, this natural astringent kills bacteria hiding in your pores, while soothing and restoring skin without drying it out," explains Cabell.
Last comes the rich yet nongreasy Coconut Face Cream, which sinks deep into skin to nourish any dry areas, help rebuild lost collagen and fight lines and wrinkles. "With previous face creams, I always found myself having to switch them out as seasons changed. Some would suddenly make my skin dry, while others would become too oily," says Cabell. "Our face cream contains an ingredient called Emulium Mellifer, which is a climate-changing oil, so you never have to deal with that issue! It works to create a product that adapts its texture according to the environment it's in. How awesome is that?"

My personal favorite of the collection is the Coconut Lip Love, a seriously silky lip oil that tastes like yummy coconut and gives my lips major shine. Made with organic coconut oil (the same sustainably sourced oil used in the majority of the brand's other products), I don't need to worry that I'm ingesting toxins as I apply it (numerous times) throughout the day. Looks like Cabell agrees with me. "Our Lip Love is probably one of my most loved products. The gloss glides right on, but isn't sticky, and tastes like you can eat it! I think I have one in every purse I own!"
You can find the collection at KopariBeauty.com (select products from the brand are also available at Sephora). And if you're into trying minis before committing to the real thing, the brand just launched a new Face the Day and Night Kit ($48), which includes travel sizes of all four products.
