What if you suddenly discovered that the skin care products you’re using are toxic? Would you search for alternatives? We think it’s time to reexamine what we are buying and why. Keep in mind that whatever you put on your skin is completely absorbed into your body and lymphatic system. That includes the many toxins found in skin creams.
If there was a cream or lotion we could use on our skin – which was also edible – it would be perfect because we would know that it would not cause internal diseases. Coconut oil is not only edible, but it’s well known for it’s ability to promote weight loss and limit the risk of diabetes.
So let’s talk about some more of the fantastic benefits of using organic coconut oil.
Top-Quality Moisturizer: Coconut oil has a high capacity to retain moisture, so it acts as an excellent moisturizer for your skin…and it smells wonderful!
Emollient: Coconut oil is made up mostly of fats, so it acts as an emollient by providing a softening and soothing effect. Small sores caused by acne or pimples also soften and heal quickly when treated with coconut oil.
Nourishes the Skin: Coconut oil includes medium chain fatty acids that are absorbed into the skin where they can be used for nutrition and energy.
Antiseptic and Anti-Microbial: Coconut oil limits the number of microbes on the skin to provide relief from eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and a variety of other skin conditions.
Fight Acne: Coconut oil has the ability to cure your acne by killing the bacteria causing the problem.
Smooth Away Wrinkles: To fight free radicals in the skin, our bodies need a sufficient supply of antioxidants. Coconut oil contains both ferulic acid and p-coumaric acid.
Look Younger: Improves the appearance and quality of the skin by removing dead skin cells and reducing flakes.
Perfect Massage Oil: As we know coconut oil can be absorbed into the body very easily, making it a great massage oil.
Natural Deodorant: Body odor is caused by bacterial growth – coconut oil fights the bacteria when applied under the arm.
