Coconut oil, Lauric acid & Monolaurin
Coconut oil, Lauric acid and Monolaurin
Around 50% of the fatty acids in coconut oil are Lauric acid a 12-carbon medium chain fatty Acid.
In addition, when coconut oil is enzymatically digested, it also forms a monoglyceride called monolaurin.
Both lauric acid and monolaurin can kill harmful pathogens like bacteria, viruses and fungi.
This is a direct benefit of consuming and applying organic coconut oil based products on the skin.
