Coconut oil is the next big trend
Looking for the next big ingredient in natural beauty? Described by many as the healthiest and most beneficial oil on earth, coconut oil is emerging as a major beauty trend. It is one of the most effective moisturizing and anti-aging tools because it is loaded with antioxidants and is easily absorbed without any residue. Coconut oil has been consumed for thousands of years in tropical cultures, and research shows that it can be used to treat Alzheimer’s or diabetes; heal skin suffering from rosacea, psoriasis or eczema; and kill bacteria and viruses. Commonly, it is used to condition and strengthen hair, boost metabolism to promote weight loss and provide natural energy.
