How Does Coconut oil help to treat Demodex?

Although Demodex's leading food is oil, coconut oil is not only inedible to Demodex; it can even help to treat or counteract these mites' effects in several ways.

Coconut oil has long been used as edible oil, especially in Asia and the Pacific.

This oil is different from other edible oils due to its high content of medium-chain fatty acids.

One of the primary fatty acids in coconut oil is lauric acid, which is also found at high concentrations in human milk. This fatty acid has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.

Studies show that coconut oil has anticancer, antimicrobial, analgesic, antipyretic, and antiviral effects. This oil has been used to moisturize and help to treat skin infections. Lauric acid has also been used as an antiparasitic compound.

That is why coconut oil is one of the components of Ungex products.

The antiviral and antibacterial properties of coconut oil have caused our products to help to treat Demodex.
