Distil Virgin Coconut oil can be used as a skin moisturizer, helping with dry skin and reduces protein loss when used in hair. With regular use on your skin, the benefits are profound and long-term. Once it completely penetrates the pores of your skin, it will eventually end up in your bloodstream for more health-improving activities. Coconut oil is nature's richest source of rare Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) or Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs). Fortifying your skin with "antimicrobial" MCFAs is one of the most effortless ways to guarding against infection. These extraordinary fat molecules are the main reason why coconut oil is so healthy for you and MCFAs such as Caprylic acid, Capric acid, and Lauric acid hate harmful microorganisms and destroy bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites, yeast, etc. that cause minor skin irritation, all the way to the HIV virus.
