SUPERFOOD FOR YOUR HAIR AND SKIN
Virgin coconut oil is a tropical oil that not only smells delicious, it is also packed with medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) – the key component that is responsible for its many health benefits. A deeply moisturising oil that has high anti-inflammatory properties, it can help soothe inflamed, itchy skin such as those caused by eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
A clear, light liquid oil at temperatures above 25°C which turns into a solid butter at colder temperatures, virgin coconut oil has a distinctive coconut scent. This oil has a slow skin penetration rate, making it better suited for those with dry skin. Damaged skin can also benefit from applying virgin coconut oil due to its healing properties.
One of only a few oils with the ability to penetrate into the hair shaft, virgin coconut oil can also be used to help treat dry, damaged hair as well as flaky, itchy scalp. The anti-microbial properties of virgin coconut oil means that it is frequently used as a natural alternative to medicated dandruff treatments.
Our pure, cold-pressed virgin coconut oil comes packed in a travel-friendly glass bottle with drip control, making it easy to use straight from the bottle. If your virgin coconut oil solidifies due to a temperature change, place it in a cup of hot water for a few minutes to liquefy. A stable oil, it can alternate between solid and liquid without any damage to its nutritional properties.

Virgin Coconut Oil is one of only a few oils available that is able to penetrate the hair shaft. Other oils can only sit on top of the hair and is not able to moisturise hair from the inside. If you have dry hair, you can massage 1-2 tablespoon of Virgin Coconut Oil on your hair as a deep conditioning treatment. Leave for at least an hour and shampoo thoroughly 2-3 times to remove all oil residue.
What is the difference between virgin coconut oil and ordinary coconut oil?
The key difference between coconut oil and virgin coconut oil is the extraction process. Regular coconut oil is extracted from dried coconut meat (also known as copra) via heat and fermentation, thus stripping the oil of its many nutritional properties.
Virgin coconut oil is extracted from fresh coconut milk without the use of heat. This extraction process leaves virgin coconut oil with a pleasant, light coconut smell and taste. Since no heat is used to extract virgin coconut oil, its nutritional properties are also preserved – thus virgin coconut oil contains more antioxidants, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals than ordinary coconut oil. The shelf life of virgin coconut oil is also much longer than ordinary coconut oil or any other edible oil as it hasn’t been subjected to heat or sunlight.
