Pure Virgin Coconut Oil

Posted on: December 24, 2010

Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is extracted via “Cold Pressed” method without any chemicals, so it has natural scent of coconut oil and is eatable. Although I’m not particularly fond of coconut oil scent, but fortunately the smell isn’t very strong and the scent faded off greatly after some time.

It freezed when stored in fridge

Dissolving gradually at room temperature

It’s very runny on skin

I loved pure oil that can be used in whatever way you liked to. I could take this for makeup removal; use it as a softener for dry skin or a moisturizer for combination skin. This is also my budget replacement that can be used beneath hand/lotion cream before bedtime, it kept my hands well-moisturized overnight. In concern of very dry skin/hair/lips, this alone was certainly not sufficient.

What I am excited to say is, this is fantastic to reduce skin inflammation. I had mentioned earlier on how it worked fabulously for “elephant-skin”. So, when a small patch of my neck developed a dry, flaky, rough skin, I immediately thought of coconut oil. This VCO improved the skin condition greatly in 3~5 days, after I had tried a natural moisturizing cream to no avail. I remembered my mum mixed coconut oil with other stuff for my small patch of psoriasis too.

A simple useful oil that have properties of antioxidant, antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial, soothing, repairing and other benefits, can be used from head to toe, at the cost of ~USD3 for 100ml, I think this is good deal.

Hi Lydia,
Sorry that I can’t recall the brand name of this VCO. I bought it during a health fair in Bangkok last year, it is a small family business selling all natural skincare products. I only able to google these two for you, click here and here if you are interested. (“v)

[…] skin, it is also expensive to be used as body balm every day. Thanks to Lydia comment, I read back my old post and inspired myself  to try coconut oil again, despite I really really not fond of coconut […]
