What is Nature's Magnificent Skin Moisturizer?

Do you keep hearing about the next “miracle” product for skin or hair health? Or a product that promises to moisturize your skin with a youthful glow? We think this miracle product has already been found years ago – organic coconut oil! 

Coconut oil is created by extracting the rich, emollient oil from raw coconuts. Although this highly saturated oil is excellent when used in cooking due to its high smoke point, it is also great for skin health. It is rich in medium-chain fatty acids, including lauric, myristic, and caprylic acids, which have natural antimicrobial properties that protect against harmful microorganisms. These properties can nourish and protect skin health.  

Due to coconut oil’s luxurious saturated fatty acids, it offers amazing skin benefits. These fatty acids may help protect the skin against microorganisms and prevent the growth of fungus and bacteria. Additionally, inflammation from skin conditions such as psoriasis, contact dermatitis, and eczema can be soothed by applying organic coconut oil to the skin, which also functions as an antioxidant.  

Did you know that organic coconut oil is a wonderful skin moisturizer? This natural form of skin hydration also reduces redness and evens skin tone. This stellar oil is absorbed quickly by the skin and hydrates your skin deeply, so the next time your hands suffer from dry, cracked skin, reach for some organic coconut oil. It can be used either by itself or add a drop or two of organic orange essential oil and mix it in.   

When searching for a coconut oil, ensure that you select an unrefined, virgin, raw coconut oil. Virgin, unprocessed coconut oil is best, since it has not been bleached, hydrogenated, refined, or deodorized (which makes it hard on the liver to detoxify and is not as beneficial on the skin). To get the full benefits of this revered product, always look for an organic, unprocessed coconut oil – your skin will thank you!
