Coconut Oil has many uses from the treatment of ulcers, head lice and kidney stones to coconut oil as a skin moisturizer. It has also been used traditionally as a massage oil.
Unlike many other massage oils that contain polyunsaturated fat (which quickly oxidize when applied to the skin or sunlight), saturated fats like coconut oil are far more stable and more readily absorbed into the skin.
Coconut oil acts as a moisturizer and skin softener. It’s benefits may extend to a range of skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis.
