One of the reasons I love Organic Coconut Oil is because it is great for the skin and I use it in just about all of my skin care creations. While Coconut Oil has been used by women in the Pacific Islands for centuries, it is just now finally receiving the recognition and popularity it demands as a rejuvenating skin oil in western settings such as America. Coconut Oil has been used in the hot tropical environments such as the Pacific from anything to protecting the skin from the sun to healing burns as it nourishes the skin. And like the Aloe Vera Gel, Coconut Oil will soothe your skin after too much exposure to the sun.
Unlike the long chain fatty acids found in animal products, Coconut Oil is a medium chain fatty acid, and can easily penetrate the skin as it keeps moisture in, making it a superb skin moisturizer. It is rich in fatty acids that are known for disinfectant and anti-microbial properties according to researchers. And because Coconut Oil is a medium chain fatty acid, which is easily used by your body, research has shown that Coconut Oil can even help to reduce cholesterol levels.
