Coconut Oil - This natural ingredient has been getting lots of press lately for its ability to repair split ends in the hair, prevent belly fat, treat Candida and so much more. Why the hype? Today, we're taking a look at the many benefits of coconut oil for skin.
A favorite ingredient of holisitic health practitioners, coconut oil offers many skin care benefits.
Coconut oil moisturizes the skin. It is composed of saturated fats. In skincare, these fats help the skin retain moisture and create a supple feel.
Coconut oil protects, too. Abundant in Vitamin E, coconut oil contains antioxidant properties. Applying coconut oil may help fight environmental damage. These protective benefits may help to prevent the visible signs of aging.
Many believe that coconut oil is an effective anti-aging ingredient. In regions where coconuts are readily available, natives use the oil as an all-natural wrinkle fighting cream. In fact, it is often the only skin care product used.
Coconut oil is also rich in protein, which may aid in tissue repair and improve cellular health.
Many people with eczema say that coconut oil helps to combat the itching associated with this skin condition.
There are many ways to incorporate coconut oil into your beauty routine. You will find it in (seed) Body Care products because we appreciate its many benefits!
Helpful Tip from (seed):When you are product shopping and reading the labels, it may say Caprlyic/Capric Triglyceride instead of the words "Coconut Oil."
