In brief: Clog pores

Coconut oil does cover pores: for some skins this is a good thing as it's mild, natural antibiotic properties kills surface bacteria which can lead to acne/scar tissue; it can also suffocate skin or Meibomian Gland mites (ie, when used at night) which live in oil pores and lead to scar tissue.
Still good to wash off completely after use. Eyedoc2020.blogspot.com for more info
