Oil Treatments that work for Curly, Straight, Dry & Fine Hair

They found that the unique coconut oil antioxidants reduced inflammation associated with arthritis more effectively than current pharmaceutical drugs.   The authors of the study write that their motivation to examine the antioxidants present in virgin coconut oil in relation to inflammation caused by arthritis is due to the ineffectiveness and serious side effects of current pharmaceutical drugs prescribed for arthritis.   The study found that antioxidants extracted from virgin coconut oil were more effective in reducing the inflammation in arthritis induced in rats, than Indomethacin, a popular prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) often prescribed for arthritis.  ...

Gentle Make-up Removing with Coconut Oil

Turns out, coconut oil isn't just an excellent body moisturizer and defrizzer; it's also a really good makeup remover. We don’t just mean that it'll get the job done when you run out of regular makeup remover. You might be surprised by how quickly it takes off eye makeup and by how easily it works (no rubbing or tugging at delicate under-eye skin)—and that goes for waterproof mascara, too. Here's why: "Coconut oil solubilizes or breaks up water-resistant substances used in eye shadow and mascara, releasing them from the skin and lashes," says cosmetic chemist Joseph Cincotta. And unlike a lot of traditional eye-makeup removers, it'll even leave your skin softer and younger-looking. "It's great for your skin, because it moisturizes...
