COCOS NUCIFERA (COCONUT) OIL

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is derived from the dried pulp of a coconut. Its main property used in cosmetology is hydration and nourishment of both hair and skin, due to the high concentration of triglycerides and saturated fatty acids in the oil.

It is especially recommended to use for dry, flaky, coarsened and fading skin, since it forms an invisible protective film on the skin surface, maintaining optimal water balance in skin cells for a long time.

It also has an antiseptic and antiviral effect, and is used to combat acne. Coconut oil accelerates the healing process, improves antioxidant status and increases collagen levels of the skin, which makes it an ideal component for mature skin skincare.

It is suitable even for sensitive, inflamed and irritated skin, which makes it a universal skincare component.
