Moisturising - The most exciting benefit that coconut imparts on the skin is moisture. Because of its unique combination of fatty acids (lauric, capric, caprylic and palmitic), it has a way of penetrating skin that few other oils have.
Another key reason that coconut oil is an excellent moisturising ingredient is that it provides the skin with necessary nutrients to stay hydrated over time. Whereas cream moisturisers are based on water, which provides only a temporary hydration that eventually evaporates.
Antioxidants - Anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial antioxidant. Calms, cools, repairs, moisturises, purifies and protects.
