The Problem With Pure Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a great moisturizer, but it’s not kind to everyone’s skin. There have been widespread complaints about using virgin coconut oil as a moisturizer and experiencing breakouts. My daughter, Willow is 12 and a long time sufferer of eczema, a chronic condition which causes dry, irritated skin. Virgin coconut oil was giving her skin all the moisture she needed, but she was breaking out something terrible.
So how do you get all the natural anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties without the irritation? Fractionated coconut oil.
What is Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fractionated coconut oil is exactly what it sounds like, a fraction of coconut oil. Certain ingredients of the oil are removed for a particular use, in this case for beauty and medical uses. Fractionated coconut oil contains one single natural ingredient- caprylic/capric triglyceride, offering all the skincare benefits of coconut oil without the fragrance. It’s colorless, odorless, hypoallergenic and in liquid form.
While I don’t use coconut oil, my daughter does. CapriClear has been her go to moisturizer for over 2 years, eliminating her need for steroid creams to combat her eczema. It’s a fine mist formula that applies fractionated coconut oil evenly and quickly absorbs for relief.
