Coconut Oil In Sunscreen: Beneficial OR Harmful?

Coconut oil has been used for decades as an effective and relatively inexpensive moisturizer for skin, hair and nails due to its ability to lock in moisture and maintain the protective skin barrier.

Containing lauric acid, coconut oil lubricates and softens the skin while also functioning as a mild antiseptic and normalizes the skin’s pH level—excellent qualities for healing.
