Ingredient Spotlight: COCONUT OIL
Naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and moisturizing, Coconut Oil is widely recognized as having exceptional benefits for the skin.
Nature has given Coconut Oil its own distinguished, balanced nutritional profile. While popular to consume as a food, when applied topically, it provides superior nourishment for beautiful, glowing skin.
Coconut Oil can penetrate the skin on a deeper level than other commonly used ingredients because of its low molecular weight and the way it bonds with proteins. It is composed primarily of medium-chain fatty acids and is especially high in lauric acid—its antimicrobial properties can help kill bacteria on the skin and reduce inflammation. It also contains high levels of linoleic acid—an unsaturated omega-6 fatty acid that acts as an emollient and skin soother.
Coconut Oil is a type of saturated fat that can help calm and moisturize dry, inflamed skin. Rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals, it deeply hydrates and can improve skin barrier function and repair.
Coconut Oil also contains Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and healthy fats, which help to make skin smooth.
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Coconut Oil can help alleviate symptoms of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
Not all Coconut Oils are created equal, though. Different sourcing and processing methods affect the quality of the oil. It’s important to use Organic Coconut Oil grown without the use of chemical pesticides.
Cell-U-Logic’s cold-pressed method of extracting this tropical oil preserves all of its naturally occurring antioxidants and glycerin. Because of its healthful fatty acid profile, unlike most other oils, Coconut Oil has excellent cleansing properties.
