Virgin Coconut Oil Offers Multiple Skin Benefits

Two studies assessing virgin coconut oil (VCO) to treat skin conditions have found it has emollient, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. In the first study virgin coconut oil or mineral oil was applied topically to children with dermatitis.
Children treated with the virgin coconut oil experienced 93% improvement, compared to just over half of those treated with mineral oil. A researcher on the study suggests virgin coconut oil makes an inexpensive and effective moisturizer. The second study compared virgin coconut oil to mineral oil for the dry skin of elderly patients and found that VCO provided the most significant and immediate improvement of the condition.
