The benefits of coconut oil in natural skincare

Aside from the fact that coconut oil smells delicious, making it a popular ingredient in skincare, it also has some really gorgeous natural benefits for your skin. Lots of people use it in the form of raw coconut oil, as a moisturiser for example, but we find it a little less messy when it’s incorporated into a natural cosmetic product.

Coconut oil contains plenty of lovely, nourishing fatty acids, which help to hydrate and protect the skin. These include linoleic acid (a.k.a vitamin F), which helps skin retain moisture, and lauric acid, which has antibacterial properties. Coconut oil also contains high levels of antioxidants and balances pH levels in the skin.

Some coconut oil skin benefits include:

  • Reducing inflammation
  • Keeping skin moisturised
  • Helping to heal wounds
