(NaturalNews) For quite some time, the bogus saturated fat scare had everyone avoiding coconut oil. Hardly anyone was using it for cooking or anything else. That disinformation has faded enough to draw customers back to using coconut oil for even more than cooking.

Recently, coconut oil has demonstrated enormous value for cosmetic or dermatological purposes. Dr. Amy Neuzil, ND has looked into some actual studies from mainstream medical research and was pleasantly surprised. (Study sources, Dr. Amy, below)

Most cosmetic skin creams do not serve their promoted purposes well, and they also often contain toxic or carcinogenic chemicals that can be absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin.

However, organic cold pressed virgin coconut oil is safe and beneficial while working better than most commercially offered skin creams and lotions.

Research highlights

Your skin is the first layer of your immune system's protection. Coconut oil mimics sebum, which the skin produces naturally to protect itself.

Cold pressed virgin coconut oil is anti-microbial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal. Since coconut oil is so mild, it can be applied to delicate areas of fungal or yeast infections.

Coconut oil has been successfully clinically tested to help treat atopic dermatitis, a type of eczema that manifests itself as an itchy skin rash that can be chronic or reoccurring.

Coconut oil helps minimize wrinkles by promoting collagen production and replacement. Collagen is the fibrous protein that connects tissue. This approach is better than trying to mask or dry up wrinkles near the eyes and mouth and elsewhere.

Minor epidermal (skin) wounds heal faster when coconut oil is applied on and near the wound. It also helps create new blood vessels in and around wound sites.

Combined with Anise oil, coconut oil rids head lice better than permethrin, a neurotoxin.

When your bloodstream absorbs virgin coconut oil, you benefit from coconut oil's bountiful nutrients and medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). The MCTs are easily digested and metabolizing them produces ketones in the brain.

Ketones have been found to prevent and/or reverse Alzheimer's, so they should help with fuzzy brain and memory lapses. Of course, you'll get more ketones if you ingest the coconut oil. But what you get from topical applications helps too. (http://www.naturalnews.com/030373_coconut_oil_Alzheimers_disease.html)

Some anecdotal applications

Make a body scrub for daily shower or bath use combining coconut oil with almond oil and either sugar for dry skin or salt for oily skin. See recipe and instructions here. (http://www.deliciousobsessions.com/2010/09/simple-body-scrub/)

Make toothpaste easily with four parts baking soda (bicarbonate of soda), with two and one-half parts coconut oil with a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Works to improve gum health as well as clean teeth.

Make an underarm deodorant to avoid toxic deodorants and pricey natural substitutes. Use five tablespoons of coconut oil with one-fourth cup of cornstarch and a dash of your favorite essential oil.

You can use coconut oil hair conditioner. Leave it on as long as possible before shampooing. It also helps style excessively dry hair.

Make your own non-toxic insect repellent by mixing a little tea tree oil, lemon balm, peppermint, or rosemary. If you don't wear it and bees, insects get to you, coconut oil will help heal the bites.

Nursing mothers can lubricate their nipples to prevent drying or cracking. Ingesting coconut will also help mothers produce more milk.

Treating dry heals that are rough or cracked and weak or soft cuticles with coconut oil are more topical treatments that many have found to work.

Coconut oil can be used to safely substitute almost any pharmaceutical or cosmetic skin application on the market.
