Does Virgin Coconut Oil Penetrate the Skin Deep Enough to Stimulate Collagen when Applied Topically?
I have read that virgin coconut oil is found to promote wound healing when applied topcally to skin. At the same time, collagen is stimulated, which seems to be an anti-aging benefit. I wonder if the oil truly penetrates the skin to a deep enough level to stimulate collagen. I would appreciate your feedback. Thank you, Lisa
