Benefits of Coconut Oil:
Coconut oil is a native tropical remedy that is comprised of mainly saturated fats (triglycerides), lauric acid, Vitamin E, and proteins. In skincare, it has become renowned for providing the skin with moisturizing and astringent properties. The mechanism of using coconut oil for skin treatment works by increasing surface level lipids. As a result, the skin’s protective barrier is reinforced and moisture retention improves.
In addition, the saturated fats present in coconut oil may also provide astringent characteristics that can help to relieve problematic skin.
