The health benefits of coconut oil are not lost on most of us; coconut oil is all the rave when it comes to healthy cooking and eating.
But what about when it comes to your beauty routine? We've recently introduced a wonderful and all-natural beauty line to our collection of products, and with RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream
, we've come to understand how this miracle working natural ingredient can also do wonders for your skin and beauty.
Here's why RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream is Worth the Investment
Why Coconut Oil?
With endless studies backing the health benefits of coconut oil, there is no doubt that a little coconut goes a long way. With its healthy fats (medium-chain triglycerides) of caprylic acid, lauric acid, and capric acid, coconut oil delivers energy faster because it's quicker to digest than other forms of fat, only going through a 3 step digestive process (compared to 26 steps in other fats).
Coconut oil treats Alzheimer's Disease, prevents heart disease and high blood pressure, cures UTI and kidney infections, prevents cancer, and reduces inflammation to name a few.
Coconut Oil Benefits for the Skin
Coconut oil is just as incredible as a facial cleanser, moisturizer, and SPF, but it also treats skin disorders like eczema, dandruff, dermatitis, and psoriasis. How? The infamous fatty acids in coconut oil reduce inflammation internally and externally, offers many antioxidants, and acts as a great moisturizer, making them ideal for all skin types.
Because coconut oil requires no addition of
chemicals or preservatives, it may be better for your skin that many store-bought skincare lines. High in vitamin E, coconut oil is known to keep the skin healthy and offers anti-aging benefits.
Refined vs. Unrefined Coconut Oil
Even though coconut oil is beneficial for your health, you have to be careful which coconut oil you are purchasing: namely, whether it is refined or unrefined.
Refined coconut oil
is derived from dried coconut meat known as copra, which is then bleached and deodorized. High heat is used to deodorize the coconut oil to remove its distinctive odour and flavour. Sodium hydroxide may be added to prolong its shelf life, and some brands may opt to use chemical solvents in order to extract as much oil as they can from the dried coconut meat. In addition, they may partially hydrogenate the oil, which means it will contain trans-fats – the opposite of healthy! Other terms to avoid when purchasing coconut oil: RBD, expeller-pressed, hydrogenated, liquid, virgin that includes copra, or just "coconut oil."
Unrefined coconut oil
is the good, healthy stuff, and what you really want to be using. Also referred to as "pure" or "virgin," this healthy form of coconut oil is extracted from fresh coconut meat with either wet milling or quick drying. Quick drying is the most common method of extraction used, which quickly dries the coconut meat and mechanically extracts the oil. Wet milling requires extraction of coconut milk and boiling. Both of these quick extraction processes do not require any bleach or additives, allowing the coconut oil to retain its distinctive flavour and odour. Unrefined coconut oil may also be referred to as pure, virgin, extra-virgin, organic, or cold-pressed, just be sure to check if the ingredients include "copra."
Why RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream?
RMS Raw Coconut Cream
RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream is superior to many other store-bought coconut oils. Why? Whenever you purchase an oil, the extraction process is an important determining factor that establishes its quality and benefits – as well as possible risks. This is what determines it's label as refined or unrefined, virgin or extra virgin, organic or just "liquid."
When you are purchasing RMS Beauty Coconut oil, you know you are purchasing unrefined coconut oil that is harvested fresh and certified organic. RMS uses a new and modern processing technique that does not require refinement, bleaching, or additives. This makes this coconut cream superior to other cold-pressed coconut oils on the market. RMS Beauty raw coconut cream can be used for a versatile number of uses, from excellent makeup remover, to skin moisturizer, to facial cleanser.
It's a difficult world being a consumer with good intentions, searching for pure products, because the marketing and certifications of the goods we consume aren't purely truthful themselves, and they tend to mislead. That's why we appreciate high-quality, all-natural products like RMS Beauty so much!
