Coconut Oil in Beauty

Definition: Coconut Oil

Coconut, besides being a tasty ingredient that goes in everything to fruity libations to decadent desserts, to Indian curries, is a tropical oil that has many uses — particularly when it comes to beauty.

Coconut oil is an emollient that helps the skin feel smooth and soft. The sweet-smelling oil is extracted from the meat of a coconut, and even contains antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, which makes it an excellent odor-masker. It's also used for giving hair body and shine. High in antioxidants, coconut oil also helps protect the skin against free radicals. Oh, and it's got a great shelf life, too.

Interested in putting a little coconut in your life? Here are some suggestions: Lush Coconut Deodorant Powder ($7.65); LaLicious Coconut Body Oil ($24); and Emerald Laboratories Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Softgels ($12).
