Conatural's unrefined Organic Coconut oil is the oil extracted from the edible, fleshy “meat” of a coconut. It’s a natural saturated fat, and is compromised almost entirely of medium-chain fatty acids. Coconut oil is one of the only sources of medium-chain fatty acids, which is what makes it so incredible for skin and hair. Lauric acid, the predominant medium-chain fatty acid found in coconut oil, is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory benefits. Coconut oil also has phytonutrients and polyphenols, which act as antioxidants. These beneficial properties make coconut oil an incredible moisturiser.
