The preferred oil for use in the cosmetics and soap-making industry, extra virgin coconut oil (VCO) is solid at room temperature, and liquefies when warmed up. This fine, pure grade of coconut oil can also be used widely in cooking, skincare and haircare.
Extra virgin coconut oil possesses high antioxidant properties and is rich in lauric acid, which is also present in breast milk. It’s because of all this that coconut oil is such an enduringly popular healthcare product, helping people to increase their immunity against viruses, bacteria and pathogens.
Once opened, we recommend that you store your coconut oil in the fridge.
