Extra Virgin Coconut oil
Virgin coconut oil, or often referred to as VCO, is made by cold-pressing the liquid from fresh coconut meat, then separating the oil from the milk and water using CENTRIFUGAL METHOD. The ideal Virgin Coconut Oil is extracted from fresh, raw coconut (not dried) and/or fresh coconut milk at low temperatures using a procedure known as the Wet Process. This is a Chemical-Free extraction process without application of heat. The difference between regular coconut oil and VCO mainly lie with the source (more specifically, the physical form of the source), the method of extraction, and its subsequent benefits. Therapeutically, Virgin Coconut Oil is highly emollient and moisturizing for the skin, hair and lips. It helps to protect the skin as it leaves a thin lipid layer on the skin. Its lubricating properties make it a nice choice for use in massage.
Although referred to as an Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil is solid at lower temperatures. A good quality VCO contains very little moisture and thus has a stable shelf life. The exact solidity of Virgin Coconut Oil depends on the amount of moisture contained in the final product. During colder temperatures, it will be firmer than when it is stored in warmer climates.
Virgin Coconut Oil is convenient to apply and can be used on its own, when desired. A small amount can simply be scooped from the jar into a tiny bowl and then applied to the skin. Although you can use your fingers to scoop it directly from the original container.
