Coconut is antibacterial, moisturizing and protective for skin and hair. Use it as a moisturizer on it’s own or as an “active” ingredient in skin serums combined with other base oils for acne treatments, moisturizing and other skin treatments depending on your skin type. It’a also great for brain function.
For example, you can use coconut oil mixed with almond or olive oil, lavender and tea tree oil as an acne cleanser and moisturizer.
Choosing the right coconut oil is key to getting the most benefit from the active ingredients extra virgin coconut oil offers and avoiding some of the dangers associated with unrefined or non pure coconut oil.
Expeller pressed coconut oil vs raw coconut oil
Firstly it’s important to select a product that has been extracted through a cold process. Heat extracted processed can remove some of the beneficial nutrients and can also leave in the coconut matter a large percentage of water making the oil more susceptible to going rancid.
Cold pressed or expelled coconut oil tastes much better than heat extracted oil too.
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil That Does Not Contain Hexane
Many of the cheaper brands of coconut oil (and some extra virgin coconut oils) use a chemical named Hexane (a product in petroleum products like gasoline and glues) in their products. This is toxic and can have adverse effects on the human nervous system.
Buying pure hexane free coconut oil ensures you are enjoying all the benefits of coconut oil without side effects.
