Virgin coconut oil is prepared by opening freshly harvested coconuts, rapidly removing the coconut meat, lightly drying on a warm stainless steel bed at low temperature and then cold-pressing the oil. The oil is then filtered several times to remove any residual solids. (This is different from most coconut oil, which is made from copra, the dried coconut meat, and then, some time later, pressed at a high heat to expel the oil). Virgin coconut oil is clear, becoming a white solid at 24 degrees C and below.

 

Skin care benefits are many with this great oil, including:

  • Allows thorough skin maintenance when applied directly owing to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-fungal capabilities;
  • Provides skin rejuvenation due to its ability to penetrate and be absorbed through several skin layers, leaving no oily surface;
  • Makes a luscious soap with beneficial health ability;
  • Mixes easily with other essential oils and natural elements to contribute to a wide range of body uses.
