FAQ

Coconut:

COCONUT OIL

  • Purecoco coconut oil is a premium oil, naturally extracted from the white flesh of hand harvested, mature coconuts and can be both consumed as part of a balanced diet and used for skin and hair care.
  • Use Purecoco coconut oil in place of other oil’s or butter in cooking, baking, frying and whipping (for toppings). Coconut oil has a high heat point meaning it is especially good for high heat cooking.
  • Use as a spread on toast in place of butter.
  • Coconut oil is solid under 24°C and liquid above this point. This will not change the quality of the oil and is naturally occurring.
  • Coconut oil is allergen free (unless allergic to coconut) with a very slight smell and flavour of coconut (not overpowering).
  • Great used for all over body massage and safe for use on children, babies, and pets too.
  • If you suffer from a dry skin condition coconut oil can be very beneficial when directly applied. It has a soothing and moisturizing effect on the skin. Purecoco coconut oil has a neutralising effect where if you have dry skin it will moisturise and if you have oily skin it will bring the skin to a natural point. Always patch test first.
  • Great for using in place of a shave balm and post shave moisturiser with no irritation.
  • Coconut oil has a moisturising and hydrating effect when used for manicures and pedicures.

  • Use as a hair treatment, rub 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil through your hair at least 30min before a shower and wash out leaving your hair and scalp moisturised and nourished from the roots out.
  • Use as a beard oil to leave nourished and moisturised.
  • Use as a natural head lice treatment, coat the scalp in coconut oil to suffocate the lice then pour apple cider vinegar over the head to remove the egg glue. Then wash your hair to remove the dead lice.
