Our skin-quenching, natural facial oil is made up of all plant-derived ingredients packed with rich antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and medium-chained triglycerides (MCTs) to deeply moisturize, nourish, smooth, and brighten your face. The amazingly fragrant scent of rose essential oil will promote a relaxation state while beautifying and rejuvenating the skin.
Ingredients and Formulation
Made from organic liquid coconut (Cocos nucifera) oil, vitamin E (Tocopherol), and rose (Rose Damascena) essential oil. We use a liquid form of virgin coconut oil that is obtained through the fractionation process which gives it its very light, quick-absorbing, and non-greasy texture.
How to Use our Coconut Oil on your Face
As a make-up remover. Saturate a cotton pad and gentle press against the skin for a few seconds. Then wipe the skin clean until all the makeup has come off.
As a cleanser. Evenly distribute the coconut oil on the face, neck, and décolleté, then gently massage it with a circular motion for approximately 1 minute. Wipe the skin clean with a soft facial cloth that has been dampened with tepid water.
As a facial moisturizer/primer. Pour one single spray in the palm of your hand. Evenly apply on your face, neck and décolleté on damp skin (immediately after cleansing the skin) using gentle outward and upward strokes.
As an eye treatment. Tap around the eye area to penetrate the oil starting below the tear duct and finishing just below the inner corner of the eyebrow.
For men. After shaving, apply a little oil on your beard with your fingertips using a combing motion.

Storage and Application
Store in a dark, cool place. For external use only. Always patch test first. Do not apply to broken or irritated skin or any areas affected by rashes.

If any adverse reactions occur, discontinue use immediately.
Our facial oil is less likely to cause breakouts due to the fact that our liquid coconut oil formulation is made from organic
No. We recommend spraying into the palm of your hand, then gently applying to your face and neck.
Fractioned coconut oil is an oil that has been subjected to fractionation. Fractionation causes the solid part of the coconut oil (long-chain fatty acids) to separate from the liquid part (medium-chain triglycerides, mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids).
Fractionation usually involves heating the oil above the melting point. At SEKAN, we instead use a process called hydrolysis —reaction with water— to break down the large coconut molecules into smaller ones. The result is an odorless oil that never solidifies and rates low in the comedogenic scale.
In terms of allergenicity, any skin care product carries this risk. However, the risk is due to how an individual user reacts to the ingredient(s) in the product once applied to their skin, more than the ingredient(s) themself.
This can be minimized by doing skin testing – eg. applying a small amount of a product to a small, conspicuous patch of skin to see if it will cause a reaction or not.
Facial serums are water-based formulas with high concentrations of active ingredients. Their small molecules are able to penetrate at deeper layers of the skin and target problem areas. A facial oil, on the other hand, is an anhydrous formula (does not contain any water) with the addition of other oil-soluble ingredients such as essential oils. Their main function is to soften, moisturize and protect the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin).
