If you’ve heard about all the associated health benefits of using coconut oil in your diet, such as its ability to improve kidney and heart health, helping to improve blood pressure, maintaining cholesterol levels, dental health and bone strength to name a few, then you should also know that when coconut oil is used topically, it’s also highly beneficial for skin, hair and nails. 

Use Fractionated Coconut Oil

If you want to include coconut oil in your skincare routine, fractionated coconut oil is highly recommended in order to receive the full scope of benefits from the oil. While whole coconut oil is highly useful for a number of ailments and concerns, it’s solid at room temperature, making it difficult to use. On the other hand, fractionated coconut oil is oil that has been refined through a heating process that has eliminated almost all of the long-chain triglycerides. The result is a colorless, odorless liquid that offers all of the benefits of whole coconut oil, in a form that is convenient to use.

Fractionated coconut oil is hassle and mess free and is commonly used by massage therapists and medical practitioners because it’s colorless, odorless and gentle. It’s also completely soluble with all essential oils, and will not alter their scent or effectiveness. Unlike other oils, it absorbs into the skin quickly while reducing essential oil evaporation.

While coconut oil was at one time castigated for its high concentration of saturated fat, it has more recently been recognized as a versatile source of nutrients. According to many recent studies, the lauric acid in coconut oil effectively reduces inflammation, reducing the severity of acne, arthritis and other conditions. The oil contains antimicrobial, astringent and antibacterial properties, and has been hailed as a skin superfood. 

Last year, goPure Naturals, an innovative skincare company that provides all-natural products released Fractionated Coconut Carrier Oil and Massage Oil. This 100% pure fractionated coconut oil contains no added preservatives, chemicals or dyes, and is a highly effective treatment for many health and beauty issues.

Each bottle of this versatile product offers 100% pure and natural, premium therapeutic grade oil. Whether used for culinary purposes, incorporated into homemade soaps, lotions or hair care products or as a massage, or carrier oil - the fractionated coconut oil provides you with all of the benefits of whole coconut oil in a form that is easier to use. No melting is required; simply measure out the amount of coconut oil you need and use it however you'd like. To find out more about goPure Natural's fractionated coconut oil visit:
