I absolutely LOVE Coconut Oil, but it has its uses and it’s not always for everything.
Traditional cultures have used Coconut Oil in cooking for centuries and these are cultures that do not suffer the health problems of heart disease, high blood pressure and cancers the way we do America.
Coconut Oil is a Medium Chain Fatty Acid.
This get used by your body as energy and does not clog your arteries.
Coconut Oil has a very high heat point, this means that heat does not change the structure of the fat into a trans-fat, which is poisonous to the body.
I cook with both Coconut Oil and Grass Fed Ghee at home, because both have high heat points.
Being a medium chain fatty acid, Coconut Oil has a molecular structure that can clog pores, so I do not use it in my Skinfoods line anymore.
Not to say it will clog everyone’s pores, but the pores on the face are more delicate and clog more easily, which is why I advise against people using Coconut Oil as a make-up remover. The pores and skin around the eyes are more delicate.
It’s your choice, it never hurts to try, cause what’s good for goose is not necessarily what will be good for the gander.
However, if you are noticing pimples, white heads and clogged pores and you have been using Coconut Oil, this may be the culprit.
