Your Guide To Buying a Coconut Oil

By Yehudah Posnick

    Coconut oil has a number of uses: as a dietary supplement, in cooking, and in taking care of your skin and hair. For cooking, it has a distinctive flavor in frying and in baked goods. It is a dairy-free, cholesterol-free alternative to using butter. The types of fats that it contains help keep a healthy weight and metabolism. It moisturizes the hair, and lends it gloss and manageability. Because of these benefits, many soaps and shampoos regularly contain coconut oil as an ingredient. But not all coconut oils are the same. Here is a guide to some of the best coconut oils on the market. 

    • Organic Refined Coconut OilRefined oil means that the coconut pulp was first exposed to heat or chemicals in order to extract the oil. The oil extracted in this way has to be further refined to remove impurities. After that, the final product has no coconut taste or smell. This is still healthier than butter or shortening, since they are processed with metal catalysts at high heat, which creates unhealthy trans fats. Also, coconut oil is not an animal product, so it has no cholesterol. It is suitable for cooking, as long as the temperature remains below 365 degrees F.

    • Organic, virgin unrefined coconut oilThis type of oil is made from fresh coconut, which is mechanically pressed and filtered through earthen clay to bleach out the natural pink hue. It needs to be heated to pasteurize the enzymes in the coconut oil (otherwise, the oil can go rancid in tropical heat. So pasteurizing is done to keep the oil from deteriorating—but the heat doesn't ruin the oil's nutritional value.). This type tends to be solid at room temperature. It is not recommended for cooking at high temperatures—it starts to smoke at 280 degrees F.

    • Fractionated coconut oil: This is coconut oil that has been processed to remove the long-chain fats. The long-chain fatty acids is what makes the oil solidify at room temperature. Removing those fats will leave you with a liquid oil. The long-chain fatty acids are used in other moisturizing products. The remaining, medium-chain fatty acids give you a saturated oil with a long shelf life and increased stability. When applied to the skin, it doesn't clog pores like virgin coconut oil. It is also an anti-oxidant, so it can protect skin from aging.

    • In skin care: People who bought the refined coconut oil are pleasantly surprised that the oil has no coconut smell to it. Those who bought the unrefined oil solved the problem of the smell by applying it with their hand cream.

    • Make-up remover: Coconut oil applied to cotton balls or a facial cloth can be an effective make-up remover. Even waterproof makeup just glides off.

    • Teeth whitener: There is a process called oil pulling: Swirling a teaspoon of oil in your mouth for a few minutes a day can help remove the mouth bacteria that collect on your teeth and cause discoloration, tooth decay and bad breath. Coconut oil has been found to be particularly effective in removing mouth bacteria.

    • Cooking uses: Coconut oil is rich in MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides, a type of fatty acid) that the body uses as a source of energy. When frying, the food absorbs the sweet taste of the coconut oil. People use it for popping popcorn—it lends a buttery flavor, without having to actually add butter.

    • Skin moisturizer: Coconut oil is a solid below 24°C (75°F), which is usually around room temperature. So it might be a solid in the container. But you'll see that it will melt in the palm of your hand rather quickly from your body warmth. It gets absorbed quickly when you rub it into your skin.

    • Hair conditioner: Apply coconut oil to dry or damp hair, massage it into the roots, and let it sit for a hour or so. Rinse out the oil with warm water, and then shampoo and rinse the hair again. You'll find that it treats dry hair and scalp, and lends a gloss to the hair. It penetrates the hair shaft, and can help prevent protein loss in the hair.
