  • Antiseborrhea: Coconut oil contains ascorbic acid, linoleic acid, methionine and zinc. All are components with antieczema properties well suited for the treatment of seborrhea.
  • Antibacterial: The coconut contains more than 20 components which antibacterials used in shampoos or hair products will help to keep the scalp free of microorganisms that can alter its state.
