Is Coconut Oil a Miracle?
Some would say! There is limited research as yet about the use of coconut oil in the beauty industry. But there is plenty of anecdotal evidence as to how it helps in a variety of ways. Plus coconut oil is added to numerous beauty creams.
What Makes it Work?
Coconut Oil contains Lauric Acid (also found in a mother’s milk), which makes the oil anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. This combined with its ability to make hair shiny, skin comfortable and even reduce mouth infections make it one of the best and least expensive alternatives to industrially made cosmetics.
The benefits to your beauty go even further when you start using coconut oil in your cooking. You can even use it as a substitute to butter and spreads. Coconut oil is less calorific than other oils and butters and when consumed boosts metabolism which may aid weight loss.
So give coconut oil a go, for the price of a chart CD you can buy a jar of organic coconut oil that has multiple health and beauty benefits.
