Skin Care: It is a mild natural oil that promotes smooth, youthful, blemish-free skin by boosting collagen production, keeping it hydrated and supple, and by protecting it against the potential damage caused by UV radiation. Its light texture allows it to soften the skin while penetrating it to cleanse the pores and prevent blackheads as well as future acne breakouts. It can also heal superficial skin burns, soothe dry and chapped skin as well as skin affected by dermatosis, eczema, and psoriasis. It can also diminish appearance of dark undereye circles.

Others: It also works as a soothing agent to relieve skin rashes characterized by inflammation, roughness, irritation, soreness, and a burning sensation. By reducing feelings of stress and swelling, boosting circulation, and improving mental functions, it relieves body aches and pain, including headaches.
