When we tell you that MyTopFace beauty Expert team can sit and talk about coconut oil for hours. There is no exaggeration, we absolutely love it. From what we hear and see everyone loves it. There is a verity of different coconut oils, some better than others. When shopping for coconut oil, depending on what you want to use it for. You want to look for some key words. Virgin or extra virgin, is when the milk is cold pressed from the meat of the coconut. The oil is then separated from the milk. When companies use the word virgin, unrefined, or pure they use the cold press method. Which is considered the purest way to extract coconut oil. When purchasing unrefined (virgin) coconut oil. You get the coconut flavor and aroma that we all love. It’s the best type of oil for cooking purposes. If you are looking for a coconut oil without the nutty coconut flavor and aroma. Refined is the way to go. Refined coconut oil is when the oil has been bleached and deodorized. The oil is extracted from dry coconut meat. The oil goes through a few levels of processing. Heat is used to deodorize and sodium hydroxide is added to prolong shelf life. VirGMO, vegan, and cruelty-free.

Coco & co is our favorite coconut oil retailer. They stand on being the purest virgin coconut oil, our beauty experts agree. For beauty purposes, COCO & CO Coconut oil is perfect for hair, face, and body. The abundance of benefits coconut oil provides make it irresistible. Coconut oil has antifungal and anti-bacterial properties and is rich in antioxidants. When using it on hair, it supports hair growth and scalp health. A bunch of hair products contain coconut oil but in few amounts. Plus being combined with other harmful ingredients, there’s no point.

Allowing the oil to do its job. Illuminate everything from dandruff to hair loss, this magical oil can be used for styling and taming frizz as well.

You are more than welcome to switch up ingredients and make the recipes you own. There are so much more homemade remedies you can make with coconut oil. Like lip balm, body whips, lotions, shaving cream, and even deodorant. Don’t forget that these homemade remedies have no preservatives, and can easily spoil. Wash hands before dipping your hands in the container or jar. Also avoid getting any water in them, because water carries a lot of bacteria. Water will speed up the spoiling process. Keeping them in the fridge will help them last longer. If you’re really into making homemade stuff. Take some time out to look up natural preservatives and see where that gets you. When fungal growth starts to develop, throw away immediately. DO NOT USE! Which is why a glass jar/container is best, it’s reusable. With that being said, we hope you enjoy these recipes. Please give us some feedback.
