It improves or even heals many skin diseases according to clinical studies published in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, such as Acne, Eczema, Fungal infections, Psoriasis and Rosacea. Even a study on  topical application of virgin coconut oil on excision wounds showed much faster healing, than the control group that wasn’t  treated with coconut oil.
