Don't Be Fooled: Coconut Oil is AMAZING, But Only If You Buy the Right Kind: Here’s What to Look For:


Coconut oil is an incredible product that does everything from whiten your teeth to make your hair extra shiny and much more, all from a natural source.




Due to the popularity of coconut oil, there has been an influx of coconut oil products on the market, and this guide is here to help you differentiate between the two.


There are 2 main types of coconut oil, refined and unrefined.


Virgin Coconut oil:   

  • Coconut scent and flavor
  • Heat up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Made from fresh coconuts
  • Unrefined
  • Certified organic and non-GMO

Refined coconut oil:

  • Neutral scent and flavour
  • Heat up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Made from dried coconuts
  • Steam refined, no chemicals used
  • Certified organic and non-GMO

The main difference between the two coconut oils is that one is 100% natural and the other has some changes made to it. Sometimes in the making of refined coconut oil, chemicals are added to replicate the texture and smell of real coconuts, read the packaging and beware of this.

Coconut oil can be used in many different ways including:

  • Baking (in cakes and deserts)
  • Cooking (in curries and stir frys)
  • As a body moisturiser
  • As a hair mask
  • Natural deodorant
  • Cold sore treatment
  • Cellulite treatment
  • Plus many more

The good news is that both refined and unrefined coconut oil is good for you, with the slight difference that you have to be a little more careful when purchasing unrefined oils. 


Always look out for:


  • Certified organic
  • Verified non-GMO
  • Confirm that virgin coconut oil IS:
  • Cold-pressed
  • Made without hexane
  • Never deodorized or bleached
  • Confirm that refined coconut oil:
  • Has never been refined using harsh chemicals
  • Be sure to check that it is steam-refined
