Vita Coco Organic Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil
Inspired by Brazil, where coconut oil is part of everyday life, Vita Coco’s organic coconut oil brings all the flavour and vibrancy of the home of carnival and rainforests right to your kitchen or bathroom cupboard.
Made from the huge seeds of the coconut palm, also known as the Cocos nucifera, coconut oil has long been used by the Brazilian people in a multitude of ways.
Cold pressed, extra virgin coconut oil is often used in Brazilian cookery, lending its distinct flavour to fish stews and chicken curries.
And it is just as valued for its moisturising properties, so you will find it on the dressing table of most Brazilian women too, used on bodies, faces and hair for a variety of tasks.
Totally free of chemicals, Vita Coco coconut oil is made from dried or fresh raw coconut meat only, ensuring it maintains all its tropical goodness, from tree to jar.
Coconut oil’s beauty benefits
An occlusive, meaning it forms a barrier to prevent moisture loss, coconut oil is a highly effective hair product and particularly beneficial for thick, curly or frizzy hair.
It helps to seal in moisture and smooths and protects from the damage of brushing and rubbing while you wash and style.
It can also help to soothe an itchy, dry scalp – simply smear on before bed, cover and rinse out in the morning.
For those with fine hair, coconut oil can be a little greasy, so stick to using this beautiful smelling oil to tame ends and smooth down wispies.
A skincare hero, coconut oil is often rubbed into dry skin to help make skin glow.
It is an especially effective moisturiser for scaly, rough knees and elbows and likewise for dry, tight shins.
Warming a small handful of coconut oil in your palms creates an easy to apply product that can also be used as a lip balm, cuticle oil or foot cream and can even stand in for make up remover if you are sensitive to the harsh ingredients in wipes and cleansers.
Coconut oil: a versatile ingredient in cooking
Do not just keep this delicious oil for your skin and hair.
Using coconut oil for cooking is a must too. Its unmistakable flavour makes it fantastic for baking - a substitute for butter in vegan recipes and adding a tropical twist to simple sponge cakes, chocolate brownies and oaty biscuits.
Coconut oil can also stand in for vegetable or sunflower oil, its high smoke point making it ideal for frying tasks.
Try frying prawns and other stir fry ingredients in coconut oil instead of sesame or use it to grease your pancake pan for vegan friendly almond or oat milk pancakes.
Popular with those on a keto diet and one of the chief ingredients of bulletproof coffee, edible coconut oil like Vita Coco is high in natural medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs).
MCFAs are converted to ketones in our bodies, providing a powerful energy source and keeping the body in ketosis, so it burns fat instead of carbohydrates.
