Coconut oil is extracted from coconuts (both from their meat and from the kernel). There are two main types of it; it can be virgin (when no chemicals or high temperatures are used during extraction process) and refined (when the coconut meat that is used to make oil is deodorized or bleach). The first type of oil is considered unrefined.
Coconut oil usually comes from different countries, however our coconut oil is virgin coconut oil that comes from Sri Lanka. It has a huge amount of saturated fat in it and can be used both externally and internally. People add coconut oil to dishes instead of less healthy oils; this way it serves as a source of healthy fats and helps improve digestion.
Coconut oil can also be added to various homemade masks for the hair and body, as well as used on its own. It is known that this oil moisturizes skin and helps treating hair, making it stronger and healthier, preventing hair damage. Sometimes it is even used to treat various skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema.
