What is saponification?
Saponification is an exothermic (gives off heat) chemical reaction that occurs when fats or oils (fatty acids) come into contact with sodium hydroxide (a base). Saponification literally means “turning into soap” from the root word, “sapo,” which is Latin for soap. The by-products of the saponification reaction, in which the fatty acid and the base combine, are glycerin and soap. Saponified oils are those that are transformed to a hardened state during the soap making process.
Say hello to happy skin!
The benefits of coconut oil
Coconut oil has many uses, including skin moisturizing. Its powerful moisturizing abilities can help relieve dry or flaking skin. Unlike your average moisturizer, primarily water and likely synthetic ingredients, coconut oil helps to strengthen skin tissue more deeply and eliminates dead skin cells while absorbing quickly into your skin.
It is not only used in tropical countries, where coconut plantations are abundant, but all across the globe, people are discovering the wonders of this oil. Research has finally uncovered the secrets to this amazing fruit, namely healthy fats called medium-chain fatty acids.
Some of the goodness in coconut oil
Saturated Fats: Predominantly, the saturated fats in coconut oil are medium-chain fatty acids or triglycerides. When applied to the skin, they keep it smooth to the touch. Due to the presence of these fats, coconut oil also retains the moisture content of the skin, as the fats eliminate moisture loss through the pores.
Capric/Caprylic/Lauric Acid: While similar to the medium chain fatty acids, mentioning them separately here is important because of their unique contributions. These three fatty acids have strong disinfectant and antimicrobial properties. As a result, when applied to the skin, coconut oil protects from infectious microbes that can get into open wounds or even enter the body through the pores.
