Almost every beauty blogger has bragged about the amazing results of coconut oil on skin. Dry skin? Coconut oil. Want your skin to glow? Coconut oil. But how accurate are these descriptions? And why does Mousson’s Triple Results Intense Moisture Cream and Lotion contain coconut oil?

WHAT IS COCONUT OIL?

Native to tropical regions such as Indonesia, Jamaica and Kenya, the oil is extracted from the ‘meaty’ kernel of the coconut palm. For many years it has been used to treat various health conditions such as blood sugar and cholesterol as well as skin ailments such as eczema. Popular for its nail and hair strengthening components, at 24°C, the multipurpose medium-chain fatty acids become solid and can be used as a shaving agent or to remove stubborn eye makeup. The many uses of this miracle oil have made it the go-to natural oil for skincare treatments, especially for treating symptoms associated with dry skin.
