Coconut oil has been credited with improving hair and skin quality, relief of stress & illness and even improving the sign of aging – but what makes it so effective? Nearly all of these benefits are credited to the lauric acid, caprylic acid and capric acid found in coconut oil. Organic coconut oil is also full of saturated fats, vitamin E and vitamin K, which makes it a great antioxidant.
So how should you use coconut oil to reap its benefits? To start, you can remove dandruff and leave your hair shiny, soft & manageable by massaging it into your scalp. The oil’s proteins will nourish damaged hair, allowing it to grow stronger and thicker.
If you’re looking to use coconut oil elsewhere, you can also massage the coconut oil into your skin. It will not only act as a great moisturizer for a lower price then any lotion; its antioxidant properties will help prevent premature aging, which will delay wrinkles and sagging skin. You can even use coconut oil to heal bruises, diaper rashes, infections, athlete’s foot and ringworm!
Obviously, coconut oil can be used in any number of ways. That’s why we include this powerful ingredient in many of our skin care products, including our Cleansing Facial Lotion and our Anti-Aging Dragon Fruit Facial Cream.
