Coconut Oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal. It is also a luscious moisturizer. Not mention it smells like candy!
Why We Love Coconut Oil
The benefits are that you will get a deep, soothing and moisturizing effect. The antibacterial and antifungal properties make sure that what you are putting on your face is also pure and free of harmful toxins that may have tried to sneak in.
Shutting Down The B.S.
You may see articles and rumors saying that Coconut Oil is actually NOT good for skin care but that's only because different skin types should use coconut oil in a variety of ways. It can be comedogenic, so if you tend to have really oily or acne-prone skin, you might not benefit from layering the coconut oil too thick. Also, note that just because raw coconut oil works wonders for some doesn't mean it'll have the same effect on you. Test on a small area first and monitor how your skin reacts.
We use Coconut Oil as an additive, so that its skin-conditioning agents are utilized without clogging your pores.
