What is Cold Pressed Organic Virgin Coconut Oil?
Coconut oil is a highly saturated oil that is traditionally made by extracting the oil from raw coconuts or dried coconut kernels. It is a hard oil, as it is solid at room temperature. Coconut oil is rich in medium-chain fatty acids. These fatty acids have antimicrobial properties that can help protect against harmful microorganisms. This is especially important for skin health, as many types of skin infections, including acne, cellulitis, folliculitis and athlete's foot, are caused by bacteria or fungi. It is also organic, which means it is produced without chemicals or modifications.
Too much coconut oil in soap can be drying on the skin due to its highly cleansing properties that tend to strip your skin from its essential oils.
Some are allergic to the soapified form of coconut oil
