Natural coconut oil: A nutritious taste of the tropics and a treat for your skin and hair
What are the benefits of coconut oil?
There are so many coconut oil benefits, read about some of them below.
Cook with coconut oil: coconut oil has always been a popular cooking and baking ingredient, and there’s good reason for that. Pure coconut oil is rich in good fats called MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) and it’s also a great alternative to other oils.
Lush locks love coconut oil: using coconut oil for the hair is a natural alternative; it has been used for centuries! Coconut oil is known to leave your hair manageable and feeling soft, shiny and beautiful looking. Try applying some coconut oil onto your hair, comb it through and leave it on as a nourishing coconut oil mask, or add some coconut hair oil to your favourite shampoo and conditioner.
Coconut oil for skin: incorporating coconut into your skincare regime could leave your skin glowing, soft and happy! Try using coconut oil on the face – simply apply a thin layer before bed and wash off in the morning. Coconut oil is also handy for soothing dry skin all over the body – definitely worth keeping a jar or handy carry pot of coconut oil around!
Are there different types of coconut oil?
Yes, there are lots to choose from! And some of the coconut oil lingo can be hard to understand. So, reading about some of the coconut oil we sell here at Holland & Barrett might help.
Raw coconut oil: raw coconut oil must be extracted from coconut flesh at temperatures at or below 45°C to preserve its nutritional benefits. It is then filtered to leave it pure, clear and free of bits.
Extra Virgin coconut oil: when a coconut oil is classed as extra virgin, this is basically stating that it is natural, raw and cold-pressed. Think of it as a marker of high quality, like how extra virgin olive oil is more nutritious than standard olive oil.
Organic coconut oil: organic coconut oil is made using 100% pure and organic coconuts.
