Coconut oil seems to provide more and more benefits with each passing day, as people discover new and improved ways to use it. People use the oil for hair, skin, cooking, and the list goes on. There are a plethora of benefits that come from coconut oil, and it’s hard to pin down every one. Since we are a contract manufacturing company for the beauty industry, we thought we’d give you our own take on the research we found for coconut oil’s benefits, specific to skin care.
The most highly recommended coconut oil is one that is Organic, Unrefined. Be careful not to simply walk down the skin care or cosmetic aisle and grab the first thing that says Coconut Oil on its label. Typically, you will find the best coconut oil in your grocery aisle. If you choose the correct organic, unrefined oil (which can also can be described with terms like [extra] virgin, cold pressed, or raw), you should reap more benefits from it than a product down the cosmetic/skin care aisle, that will most likely contain perfumes and other artificial ingredients.
