Coconut oil is a tropical treasure, known for its highly nutritious and therapeutic properties on both the inside and outside of our bodies. Many have been aware of the benefits of coconut oil, using it for generations. Today, research has delved deep into the science around coconut oil and we’re here to give you an inside guide to what they’ve found.
Here are some of the many reasons why you should start going coconuts!
It’s a deep cleanser
Our daily routine exposes us to many toxic chemicals including the makeup we wear and the air we’re exposed to. These toxins become lodged in our pores, clogging them and causing the buildup of harmful bacteria. Coconut oil is a gentle cleanser that reaches deep into the pores to dissolve the hardened sebum that is produced.
It’s a moisturiser
Coconut oil works by softly covering your skin, seeping well into the pores to create a nourishing layer. Say goodbye to dry and flaky skin!
It’s a makeup remover
The soft tissue on your skin’s surface can often become damaged when using makeup removers with chemicals. Coconut oil is the natural solution to makeup removal that won’t damage your skin thanks to its gentle properties. Coconut is also a common ingredient in baby skin products for the same reason!
It fights fungal infections
Recent studies have found that the capric acid and lauric acid in coconut oil naturally treat yeast infections. This is particularly useful when treating symptoms like dryness or scaly skin.
It prevents wrinkles and other signs of aging
Research has found that coconut oil is able stimulate collagen production deep within the pores of the skin. Collagen is what gives our skin the elastic, smooth and supple appearance.
