    Of your not sensitive to high CO you should be fine. I don’t generally go over 25% CO as any more tends to dry my skin too much. Many here don’t use more than 10-15%. And some don’t mind 30%. It’s a personal choice.

    It looks good to me. I would maybe suggest a hard butter like Shea, cocoa or mango(5%) and reduce coconut oil the same amount. I love how even a little bit feels on the skin.

    Jasmyne, you might try reducing the coconut oil to 25% and add 5% Castor oil.:)
