Coconut Oil is a natural treasure. It has been used in food preparation for years but in recent times this rich oil has gained popularity for its benefits as a hair and skin moisturizer. In its natural state Coconut Oil is a solid above 76 degrees Fahrenheit and a liquid below. When in a solid form the oil quickly liquefies when rubbed between your hands. This all-natural oil is rich in lauric acid, capric acid, and Vitamin E, which helps to condition, strengthen, and nourish your skin and hair.
Keeping your skin healthy is one of the first things you can do to help ensure your overall health. When neglected your skin is more susceptible to breakouts, dryness, cracking and an acceleration of the aging process. It is important to take steps to condition your skin and to help it maintain its natural glow. 100% Coconut Oil is an ideal moisturizer to use to help achieve this goal.
