Coconut Oil

What is coconut oil?

Coconut oil comes from processing the flesh inside a coconut to produce a rich, creamy plant-based product.

  • Coconut oil is composed of mostly saturated fats that act as super hydrators by providing a lipid-rich barrier over the skin.
  • The most abundant fatty acid in coconut oil is the medium chain fatty acid, lauric acid. It is naturally antimicrobial, and therefore can be very soothing to red, irritated skin.
