There’s a lot of hype right now surrounding coconut oil and its uses. It’s getting a little ridiculous with the miracle claims and people over hyping it.But according to South Sea legend, the Coconut tree is the tree of life. Coconut oil is the nectar of the Gods, the ambrosia of its people. Coconut Oil is the oil of Kings, a dream cream, a soothing salve on irritated skin. Coconut oil is a minimalist’s magic bullet, the ultimate balm for radiant skin, hair, teeth and nails. Coconut oil is a panacea. We like to step out of the shower, skin still slightly wet, and lather up in the natural goodness to keep skin soft and smooth. Feeling like a tropical beauty queen, smelling like a coconut smoothie is the bonus. Kapuluan Coconut Oil works as a fantastic moisturizing lotion, locking in moisture and energizing your skin. It can also act as a calming balm. Simply applying a small (less than dime-size depending on the area) dab of coconut oil can soothe itchiness, dryness, and small cuts or scratches. This works particularly well with cuticles to help with hangnails or just damaged areas around your nail bed, and benefits your nails as an added bonus! Using coconut oil as a lotion can also eliminate dead skin cells, reduce flaky skin, and lessen the appearance of wrinkles…naturally. This leads to a younger look and feel to your skin, without the use of harsh and expensive chemicals. Coconut oil really is nature’s answer to skin issues, suncare, a healthier body & mind, and is significantly better than the average face or body moisturizer. Typically, commercial lotions contain a lot of water. At first, this may sound intuitive- water hydrates, so water in moisturizer is a good thing, right? Wrong! Water in your moisturizer makes your skin feel hydrated until the water dries, which dries out your skin along with it. This is great for the company because it is cheaper for them to produce and gets you to buy more of their product. For you, this just means a temporary fix for a lasting problem. Along with water diluting most moisturizers on the market, a lot of lotions contain petroleum-based product, which can suffocate your skin.
