We feature Coconut Oil inside our Acai and Goji Berry Microdermabrasion Scrub
Coconuts were first cultivated in Southeast Asia. Coconut Oil has grown in popularity amid claims that consumption has a host of health benefits.
Coconut Oil is rich in saturated fat and medium-chain fatty acids, especially Lauric acid.
Saturated fats are amazing at repairing the skin’s natural barrier function and can also
keep moisture in the skin by slowing down the evaporation.
Studies show that coconut oil does have healing properties and can aid faster healing of the skin.
Maintaining Healthy Skin Flora
Alongside Lauric acid, Coconut oil contains Vitamin E, essential amino acids and caprylic acid which form part of the barrier function of the skin and help maintain the skin's natural flora. Coconut oil is a great emollient if the barrier function of your skin is disturbed. It is great at repairing and restoring this quickly as it is rapidly absorbed into the epidermis.
If you can't apply our Acai and Goji Berry Microdermabrasion Scrub, incorporate coconut oil into your lifestyle and watch your skin transform.
