Beauty expert and blogger Gemma Wyld sent me some amazing articles on olive oil and coconut oil and their health and beauty benefits. Each article is loaded with tips and practical information which I will make use of and I hope everyone else does, too. It is why the Trianon Beauty Creams combine both coconut oil and olive oil. From Beautisenz on olive oil:

Before you apply olive oil to your face to use as a moisturizer, you  may want to know what this natural substance offers. This is an  incredible product that is loaded with powerful nutrients that are essential for healthy skin. For example, olive oil contains phenols, which are used for repairing damage to skin cells that may be caused by environmental factors. It also contains squalene, which is a natural substance that is  commonly used as a lubricant and moisturizer in many cosmetic products.  It also is a rich source of vitamins A and E, which are also essential  to skin health. As you can see, olive oil contains all of the natural  ingredients your skin needs for health and beauty without any synthetic  chemicals commonly found in cosmetic products  (Read more.)

Here is an article on coconut oil, specifically on how it can help your hair. To quote:

Split ends have to be the bane of all us attempting to grow our  hair long. It seems like every time we turn around, we have to trim our  hair again. Though we know this will eventually help nourish our hair  more and produce greater length, the waiting game is a difficult one.  Thankfully, that’s where coconut oil comes in. Coconut oil is enriched  with vitamins, fatty acids, and protein–all of which are necessary for  helping your hair’s growth. When you apply coconut oil to your hair, the  oil penetrates your hair shaft down to the follicle, coating it with  the fatty acids and protein it needs to repair any previous damage. As the coconut oil helps with split ends, in time, hair growth is  typically a visible result. Your trips to the hair stylist can be a  little farther apart now that your split ends won’t be as much of an  issue. Without the split ends, your hair strands will actually retain  their length so you can see the hair growth! The hair growth factor is  twofold, because coconut oil nourishes your roots as well, which will  now have the nutrients they need to heal any damage, target weak areas,  and put more focus into growing rather than reviving dead ends. Though  coconut oil for hair loss has been speculated as effective, there aren’t  any studies proving it. Of course, since it can help with hair growth, it doesn’t hurt to try. (Read more.)
