My first encounter with coconut oil was introduced by my sister. I remember she would use this as a substitute for face/body moisturizer. I thought it was quite bizarre for her to use it on her body when the common use that I know of at the time was for food. In addition, the oily/greasy texture didn’t appeal to me as a beauty use. Only till I started seeing more and more people using this as a beauty product then I started researching more about the health benefits of this oil.
