Our Natural Coconut Oil is the perfect cosmetic and therapeutic oil to enhance your healthy lifestyle. Maple Holistics pure Coconut Oil is scent free and made in the USA.
Coconut oil has been used for hundreds of years in a number of different practical applications and can work wonders on your skin and hair when used correctly. Firstly, coconut oil has been favored as a natural skin moisturizer for a long time due to its rich fatty acid content. This means that once the oil has been applied to your skin, it helps to lock in moisture and can even encourage healthy cell regeneration. This is imperative for helping you heal skin affected by a wound or any form of environmental damage and can greatly aid the healing process.
However, one of the additional benefits of the oil is that it is also rich in lauric acid which is considered a potent natural antiseptic agent. The chemical compound not only helps to slow the growth of germs and bacteria around an affected area but can also kill them completely when used regularly enough. This makes the oil a potent natural alternative to many of the conventional antiseptic treatments that we may find in the market today, many of which have harmful side-effects with prolonged use.
The high amount of MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) that are found also help to build muscle in your body. So whether you’re using the oil as an edible addition to your diet or as a topical treatment, you can be certain that you’ll be benefiting your body in more than one way.
Coconut oil is also well known for aiding in the treatment of flaky scalps and can cure dandruff by addressing the issue at the source. You can apply a small amount of coconut oil to your scalp after washing as a natural, leave-in conditioner. This will not only help to lock in moisture but can also help to kill off any germs or bacteria that may be causing scalp inflammation, and ultimately dandruff, in the first place.
