Coconut oil is used with problem-free skin and hair. It is good for body skin after a shower. Coconut oil melts at 250 degrees C, and that’s why is of great help with some masks where powdered and/or liquid components insoluble in liquid oils, must be dissolved.
Coconut oil is suitable for healthy and normal skin maintenance, i.e. skin free of any particular problems. It can be used for directly massaging face, neck, low- neck as well as the whole body, especially massaging dry skin after a shower. Due to its composition of saturated fatty acids, coconut oil is instantly absorbed by the skin and makes it feel like ‘velvet’.
It prevents hands and heels against chapping. Coconut oil is suitable to be added to sun care creams, toilet milks, emulsions. It can also be used pure before and after sunbathing creating a stable, protective layer. When melted coconut oil can be mixed with all other oils because in this way it expands and enriches its effect.
Note: at temperature below 250 degrees C, coconut oil is in solid state but applied to the skin it melts instantly.
