Not all Coconut oil is created equal! Trust me!

In its purest form, coconut oil is incredibly healthy for your body. But not all coconut oils is pure. Some are cut with other oils, or are cosmetically altered with potentially toxic chemicals. Coconut oil’s popularity has led to many different types being invented and developed. Not all of these different types are bad, but not all of them may serve your body’s needs. Please Please Please, when I advise you to try it, don’t buy it at Sam’s club.
How to Choose the Best Coconut OilThere are so many types of labels on coconut oil! Which is the best coconut oil? Here’s your guide to choosing the best coconut oil for you:
Virgin Coconut OilThe real stuff! And the best coconut oil in my opinion. Virgin coconut oil is oil derived from the meat of mature coconuts. It’s the good, fatty oil that comes as a result of processing the meat. No chemicals needed to extract all that goodness.
Virgin coconut oil is my favorite, personally. It’s by far the most pure grade, and you’ll definitely reap the most benefits from using it. I use strictly this type in my esclusive coconut oil moisturizer.
Extra Virgin Coconut OilI’ll tell you a secret: Extra virgin coconut oil is really no different than virgin coconut oil. It’s not comparable to olive oil, simply because they’re made with very different substances. Don’t fall into the trap of paying more for something for no reason!
Refined Coconut OilThis coconut oil isn’t the most pure out of all the options I’ve described here. It is good for cooking due to the taste, but not for your tan.
Liquid Coconut OilNow it’s time to go to talk about the less natural coconut oil substances. Liquid coconut oil is natural coconut oil that has been franctionated, with some remaining solids extracted as well. It actually stays in liquid form at room temperature, while virgin coconut oil does not.
But there are some downsides. Liquid coconut oil is processed to achieve its unique characteristics, and some key aspects of coconut oil are removed. One of these is lauric acid, a very healthy fat found in most forms of coconut oil. So while this version of coconut oil safe to use on skin and in recipes, you’re really not getting all of the benefits of coconut oil by using it. It also works against your tan instead of for…please don’t think that ALL coconut oil is good for your tan.
RBD Coconut OilThis one is the worst coconut oil product on the market. RBD stands for Refined, Bleached and Deodorized. That’s referring to the oil, folks!
Like refined coconut oil, this oil has no coconut-y taste. It definitely has its fans among people who want the features of coconut oil without that signature smell or taste. But you won’t be reaping all of the benefits (like healthy phytonutrients) of coconut oil if you use RBD coconut oil. Worse yet, you’ll be putting unnatural substances in or on your body. You’re best off sticking to the most natural product possible.
