Coconut Oil Explained: Why We Love It and You Will Too

Coconut oil is one of our star ingredients. It has wonderful benefits for both your skin and your hair: it’s rich in vitamin E and fatty acids (like lauric acid), it has antioxidant and antibacterial properties, and it stimulates the production of collagen.

We know these lists can be confusing or unclear about the actual benefits of using a certain product or ingredient. That’s why we are breaking down all the natural properties of coconut oil in a simple, straightforward way. And we’re pretty sure that by the end of this article you’ll want to include it in your beauty routine!

- It’s rich in fatty acids. In particular, coconut oil contains a lot of lauric acid, which makes it naturally antimicrobial; it also means that it minimizes inflammation and nurtures and hydrates the skin. Coconut oil has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin and lock in moisture. That’s why we always say coconut oil is deeply hydrating and nourishing.

- High in vitamin E. You’ve heard coconut oil has anti-aging properties, right? That’s because it contains vitamin E, which is a natural antioxidant that helps protect your skin and repair damaged skin cells —all of which prevents premature aging.

- Stimulates collagen production. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body and it plays a role in strengthening and protecting skin, as well as in elasticity and hydration. With age, our bodies produce less collagen, which leads to dry, loose skin and the formation of wrinkles. Thanks to its high content of vitamin E and lauric acid, coconut oil improves skin elasticity and helps it retain collagen.

- Antibacterial and antiinflammatory properties. This is another benefit of coconut oil’s high lauric acid content. It means that coconut oil is great for treating sensitive skin and/or acne, eczema and psoriasis. Since it is naturally antibacterial and promotes wound healing, coconut oil can help prevent and treat acne scars. It also minimizes inflammation and, as we said, is a fantastic moisturizer, which makes it ideal to calm sensitive and very dry skin.
