What are the benefits of virgin coconut oil – What are its uses?
As we said in the use part, the virgin Coconut oil is one of the multipurpose oils par excellence of the world of cosmetics and aromatherapy. Be careful to speak of virgin Coconut oil and not Copra oil, used a lot in the food industry and often obtained by solvent extraction (less respectful of the material than extraction by cold pressing).
In cooking as in cosmetics, its benefits are numerous. To nourish skin and hair, for an effective and natural massage, as a natural lubricant: the benefits of Virgin Coconut oil are very numerous and make it a very versatile oil, ready to be used with essential oils for more specific effects. It has anti-cellulite effects in massages extremely interesting, by its smoothing action on the skin. The vitamin E it contains also allows your skin to be protected from oxidation (responsible for the premature aging of your skin). It can also be found in homemade toothpaste recipes, or in the formulation of gentle shampoo.
What is coconut oil used for, and can it be used on the skin and face?
In cosmetics, Coconut oil is an excellent mollifier: it makes the skin softer. It serves to nourish the skin in depth, including the face. The skin of the face is more fragile, because it is exposed to all kinds of aggressions and is thinner than the skin of the body. Beware also for those who are prone to oily effect or oily skins, because Coconut is a comedian, so it is more adapted to normal and very dry skins. If in doubt, try applying directly to the face on a very small area, then study its effects over a week. In massage on the body anti cellulite: it will work wonders.
How to use Coconut oil for the hair.
Coconut oil for hair is mostly used as a mask. You need to apply the oil directly to the scalp and let it sit.
The idea is to either go about your business and let the oil work along the roots or spend the night with this mask around the hair, wrapped for the occasion in a warm towel. The benefits of Coconut oil are many, but they include softening the hair fiber, making your hair more resilient and less brittle.

Doing your makeup with Coconut oil?
We recommend it! As seen in our suggestions, Coconut oil is an excellent natural makeup remover, prized for its saturated fatty acid content (the ones that make it mostly solid at room temperature). Apply to your face to remove stubborn makeup or set mascara, and let Coco work naturally! Bonus: your skin is nourished in the process!
