Coconut oil is extracted from the kernel of mature coconuts from the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). Because of its high saturated fat content, it is slow to oxidize and has a shelf life of up to two years without spoiling. Coconut oil has many beneficial properties when used on the skin. It is a good moisturiser, and is helpful when used on dry skin. It increases tolerance to the sun, and helps avoid burning. It also helps heal sunburn. It is anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal, is a natural deodorant, helps with cold sores, and reduces itching from insect bites.
