It’s natural to assume that ozonated oils with higher ozone properties will be more effective. While certain cases may definitely call for an oil that’s on the higher end of the scale, more is not always better. This is absolutely the case when it comes to our Ozonated Coconut Oil. Here are a few reasons you might want to consider PurO3’s Ozonated Coconut Oil if you haven’t before:
1. Coconut oil is hydrating. We all suffer from dry skin from time to time, especially in the winter months when the air is typically drier. Ask any dermatologist and they’ll tell you that dry skin is often itchy skin, with scratching making the problem worse. And that’s just normal, dry skin; for someone dealing with a skin issue, like eczema for example, this problem is even worse. Coconut oil might be your answer!
Adding a layer of coconut oil to the surface of your skin helps trap moisture in place, which then can help remoisturize the area. A study published in the journal Dermatitis compared olive oil to coconut oil used for atopic dermatitis, the most common form of eczema, and found coconut oil to be superior. I personally use the ozonated coconut oil as a facial moisturizer when my dermatitis breaks out, and find that it normally resolves in about half the time.
2. Coconut oil has antimicrobial properties. Most are already aware that many skin issues are caused by bacteria or other microbes. Take acne, as some forms are caused by bacteria, or athlete’s foot, which is a fungal infection. Coconut oil has been shown to be naturally antimicrobial due to certain medium-chain fatty acids that are found in the oil.
A study showed that lauric acid, the major component of coconut oil, was the most effective in inhibiting bacterial growth against 20 strains of bacteria versus 30 other fatty acids tested. This corroborates the results of the first study mentioned above, as this study showed that the use of coconut oil resulted in negative tests for Staphylococcus aureus in 95% of those who had previously tested positive. When you consider the already naturally occurring antimicrobial properties of coconut oil, adding the antimicrobial properties of ozone can only be beneficial.
3. Coconut oil has anti-inflammatory properties. Research continues to point to inflammation being either a cause of or associated with many disease states. Inflammation is usually caused by certain white blood cells. When our bodies recognize damage, white blood cells are sent to the area and secrete cytokines that initiate the inflammatory response. An in vitro study showed that coconut oil not only inhibits the secretion of these inflammatory cytokines, but actually stimulates the gene expression of certain proteins that thicken the skin barrier, help it function, and promote healing of damaged tissue. The study also hypothesized why coconut oil seems to be so effective against atopic dermatitis through the same function: keeping the skin cells hydrated.
4. Ozonated coconut oil carries the most subtle scent. For many, the smell of ozonated oil is clean and fresh, while for some it might be a little off putting. The higher the ozone properties of the oil, the stronger the “ozone smell”. Conversely, the oils on the lower end of the spectrum carry less of the “ozone smell”. Considering all of the previously discussed beneficial properties of coconut oil, those that don’t care for the strong scent of ozone might find our ozonated coconut oil more to their liking.
5. Ozonated coconut oil absorbs the best. As mentioned previously, the strongest oil isn’t always the best choice, and this is also the case when it comes to absorption. As a rule of thumb, the “weaker” the oil in ozone properties the better it will absorb into the skin. When you massage coconut oil on the skin, it absorbs rather easily and doesn't leave an oily appearance. This can lead to ozone penetrating deeper into the skin than oils that may not absorb as easily.
Whether you’re looking for deeper penetration of ozone, superior hydration, or you have sensitive skin, Ozonated Coconut Oil is an ideal solution.
