Coconut Oil has been one of the most widely used oils in India and other Asian countries since ancient times. After being “Rediscovered” by the rest of the world, it is now also referred to as the “Wonder Oil” as it offers a myriad of benefits, thanks to its high content of saturated medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) like Lauric acid, myristic, palmitic and caprylic fatty acids.
What makes the Herbal Me Extra Virgin Coconut Oil so special is that it is free of hydrogenation, refinement or deodorization and thus retains its original flavor, smell and freshness, giving an inevitable Virgin quality to it. It is brimming with aromas to enrich and soothe your senses the whole day long. It is naturally antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal and antibacterial. And to top it all, it has been Certified by Ecocert Greenlife (France) as 100% Organic : Zero Chemicals and No artificial fragrance.
Benefits for skin:
Enriched with all the wonderful MCTs, this oil works as an excellent moisturizer. Since Lauric acid is also an emollient, it deeply moisturizes the skin naturally, unlike the normal lotions that contain water. It is also most beneficial for acne control due to its microbe fighting abilities. This Wonder Oil helps remove dead cells and strengthens the tissues present under the skin. It is also known to have antioxidant properties which help stop skin aging early. The high content of Vitamin E in this Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil prevents skin from cracking, keeping it smooth and silky always. Using it after showers makes it sink right into your skin, when it is still warm and damp from the shower. Other very important beneficial uses of this oil are:
- Natural Makeup Remover and Toner since it does not clog the skin pores.
- Excellent Body Massage oil.
- Natural and Non-toxic Body Moisturizer.
- Regular massaging on the affected area gets rid of unwanted Stretch marks.
- Heals minor wounds and cuts.
- Natural Lip balm and Lip moisturizer.
- Teeth whitener.
- Tan retainer.
Benefits for hair:
Massaging the Herbal Me Extra Virgin Coconut Oil on the scalp improves the growth of healthy hair. Its fatty acids bind to the protein found in the hair, thus protecting it from breaking and falling. The special MCTs in this coconut oil keep the hair follicles healthy and moisturized preventing hair loss. Its essential proteins nourish damaged hair and keeps them healthy. It is also beneficial for removing dandruff as the dandruff causing yeast is treated by its antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal and antibacterial properties. It acts as an excellent deep conditioning hair mask and helps in taming frizzy hair. By applying it slightly warm, at least one hour (or if possible for the whole night) before shampooing as a wonderful pre-shampoo conditioner gives you soft, shiny, tangle free and strong hair. Make sure to cover your hair properly after applying the warm oil. You can also add a few drops of Herbal Me-Rosemary Essential Oil to it, which is great for Hair and scalp as well, in addition to the lovely fragrance it will provide the whole day long.
