The coconut oil we use in our products is organic, virgin, unrefined, and untreated. This way we know it has its maximum nutrient-level, thus being the most beneficial for our bodies. Coconut oil is made from the kernel, or fleshy-part of the inner coconut. It is native to many South Asian countries which have humid and hot environments. Packed with nutritional properties, coconut oil is used in both traditional and modern medicines. Coconut oil is rich with antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. Thanks to its moisturizing properties, coconut oil is believed to cure all sorts of skin ailments when ingested or applied topically. It is gentle enough to be used on adults, children, and even pets.
Not all coconut oil is created equal. Refined coconut oil is made from coconuts that are baked before the oil is extracted. The oil is then bleached to remove bacteria and dust. Unrefined coconut oil is extracted from fresh coconuts and is not bleached. It is raw, and is also called "pure" or "virgin." Unrefined coconut oil maintains more of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities, making it the better option. Coconut oil contains iron, which is a nutrient that helps with oxygen transportation throughout the body. Coconut oil contains a small amount of vitamin K, which is a vitamin that helps your blood to clot. And it also has a little vitamin E, which is an antioxidant vitamin that attack damaging free radicals and shields all cells.
Coconut oil also helps to delay the occurrence of wrinkles because it contains antioxidant Vitamin E, known to protect skin cells from damage over time. The Vitamin E found in coconut oil soothes rashes, eczema, sunburn and psoriasis. It also has antiviral and antifungal benefits which can help to treat wounds, scrapes, and bug bites. Coconut oil also is able to penetrate your skin on a deeper level because of its low molecular weight and the way it bonds with proteins. The saturated fats that helps the skin stay moisturized, with the fat preventing moisture loss through the skin’s pores. These fats give the skin a healthy, smooth and even tone.
