Coconut Oil: Staying Smooth in an Economical Way

What would you pay for younger-looking, healthy skin? Does $55 billion sound like too much? That’s about what American women spend annually on beauty products. Of course, not all of that amount goes to skin care products, but it’s a good guess that most cosmetics are purchased in an effort to smooth wrinkles, erase dark spots and leave skin looking dewy and soft from head to toe. But why pay $55 billion when a jar of organic extra virgin coconut oil can do all those things and more for less than $20?

Nourish Skin with Pure Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil has been the favorite beauty product of Island cultures for generations. If it can fight the effects of tropical sun and coastal breezes it can certainly handle anything your day brings. Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil’s effectiveness in fighting dry skin and soothing all types of epidural unhappiness can be credited to four factors:

  • Quick absorption
  • Rich source of vitamin E
  • Antiviral and antifungal properties
  • Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil contains 3 fatty acids essential to healthy skin: lauric acid, caprylic acid and capric acid

Vitamin E plays an important role in the overall health of skin. As an antioxidant, it protects skin cells from pollution, ultra violet light and other environmental elements that cause damaging free radicals. Vitamin E is an important ally in the prevention of skin cancer. While the vitamin E in organic extra virgin coconut oil is busy protecting skin, the fatty acids brighten skin and lighten discolorations. The moisturizing effects of coconut oil help to eliminate wrinkles and rehydrate dry skin. Lastly, the antiviral and antifungal properties in organic extra virgin coconut oil help heal minor irritations, cuts and scrapes as well as more serious skin problems such as ringworm, eczema and psoriasis.

In addition to all this goodness, if you look at the ingredients in a jar of high-quality lotion or skin-care cream, the first ingredient is probably water—even in the expensive ones. Why pay for fancy water when a jar of organic extra virgin coconut oil offers everything, and more, your skin needs?

For culinary or topical use, we always recommend purchasing organic, cold-expressed, extra virgin coconut oil. Keep a jar in the bathroom to use as an all-over body cream, facial moisturizer, make-up remover, shaving cream or leave-in conditioner for dry hair. Without chemical additives, alcohol or other harsh ingredients or synthetic colors or scents, pure organic extra virgin coconut oil is a safe, effective and economical skin-care product for the whole family.
