Welcome to The Skinny!
Here at The Skinny, we strive to continually share with our customers how to live a healthy, chemical-free lifestyle. It is a journey with you to live cleaner, by eliminating impurities and toxins from your lives. Don't be intimidated - not only is it possible, but it’s simple. We believe that what you put on your body is as important as what you put in your body. Did you know there are more than 80,000 industrial chemicals that don’t have to be disclosed when they are used to make your products? That’s crazy! You should never settle for products that contain hidden ingredients. Because of that, we promise to: Always be chemical-free - no toxins, fillers, solvents or preservatives. Provide the purest products on earth derived from coconuts, and filter them through our patented Nutralock™ process, creating products that deliver superior hydration Source the highest-quality ingredients (5 or less ingredients per product), and trace them from farm to bottle.
Chemical-free Coconut Oil
The Skinny ensures unrivaled purity from the moment we wild-harvest and process our coconuts in Vietnam, to manufacturing our products in Indianapolis, all the way to your doorstep. The Skinny never uses synthetic ingredients and scents, and our products never contain hidden toxins. We manufacture, process, and package everything we produce by hand, producing a high-quality, sustainably sourced product you can trust. We can honestly say that our products contain no junk, period. Because of the choices we've made in these processes, we’ve won fan-favorite awards, including a 2018 Dirty Thinkers’ Choice Award.
A Clear Difference
We say it all the time: the difference is clear. The Skinny Coconut Oil requires 50% more coconuts to produce. In its liquid state (above 78°F) it looks like water, completely clear. That is the true sign of purity in coconut oil.
How do we do it? We've patented a process called the Nutralock System™ that removes the water from the coconuts without using heat. With this discovery, we were able to produce raw coconut oil that is unmatched in the coconut oil industry. Coconut oil isn’t just for eating; in fact, the amazing properties of coconut oil extend beyond nutrition. Our premium beauty products contain five ingredients or fewer and combine 100% pure coconut oil with therapeutic-grade essential oils to create skincare as nature intended. Our beauty products will give you everything you need to moisturize, repair, and protect your skin...naturally.
A journey into wellness
Our founder, Luke Geddie, was raised by a mother dedicated to healthy living. When his younger brother became extremely ill as a teenager, his mother began looking for alternatives to traditional medicine, which ultimately resolved his condition. Because of his own family's journey into wellness, a chemical-free lifestyle became ingrained into Luke’s life.
An adventurous opportunity
Seeking adventure, the two brothers traveled to Southeast Asia in 2012. They made their way across the continent, working as they went — from consulting in Thailand to volunteering at orphanages in southern India. The highlight of their journey was Vietnam. They admired the country's pristine villages and lush jungles, but were especially captivated by the hard working, family-oriented Vietnamese people.
After their trip, Luke chose to remain in Vietnam, working with locals through an import-export company that he founded. Luke was introduced to an innovative way to produce coconut oil without heat, chemicals or solvents. The coconut has always been an extremely versatile and indispensable food for people in the Tropics, as it is rich in vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and valuable lauric acid (also found in mother’s milk).
A company is born
On one of his trips home, Luke brought this revolutionary coconut oil to his family and friends who confirmed that this oil was very different from anything else they had ever tried. After adding a little each day to their diets and skin care routines, everyone expressed positive results, such as an increase in energy or improvement in their skin or waistline. Everyone loved its natural taste and moisturizing effect.
Convinced that this coconut oil was special, Luke patented their unique process and, in his family’s living room, launched Skinny in September 2013. With only ten jars of coconut oil and a big dream of changing the world, Skinny began advancing a chemical-free movement that offers people the opportunity to take charge of their own health, enabling them to contribute more fully to their families and communities.
