by Dusty R. Green, M.Ed., Research Scientist/Author
I found this
particular brand, Jarrow, to be the very best compared to others I have used over the years. This one is not chunky nor makes you smell like coconuts and, as a result, is one of the best skin moisturizers for the
money. It applies to the face and all other body parts smooth and even. It is the best massage oil I've ever used (and/or, had a massage therapist use on me) -- hands down.
Jarrow Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a delicious healthy cooking oil with an enticing light taste. Chefs throughout the World will attest that it is better than butter. "Many moons ago," it got a bad rap for being unhealthy due to the saturated fat
(cholesterol related) content. The
traditional medical establishment claimed that all saturated fat is unhealthy which unjustifiably threw coconut oil into that category. Actually, coconut oil is cholesterol-free and rich in medium-chain triglycerides (good fats). Medium length chain fatty acids are rapidly digested compared
to long chain fats and is a favorite among long distance athletes.

Jarrow Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is high in lauric acid which has many health
benefits without any known side effects. It
is a great moisturizer for the skin. In addition, when
mixed with BHT, it enhances the effectiveness of

Coconut oil, unlike most other cooking oils, does not require refrigeration and does not become rancid, even after prolonged storage at room temperature. Prior to the early 1900s (and the introduction by the food processing industry of artificially hardened vegetable
oils), coconut oil was the principle dietary fat in the USA.
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a saturated fat, it has many remarkable
benefits/effects, among which are its antioxidant action (probably by supporting
virtually free of negative side effects.
Recommended Dose: Can be applied directly to skin and hair.
Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil can also be used in place of butter and other cooking oils or mixed with BHT (butylated-hydroxytoluene).
addition, it is one of the best
oils available for
massage therapists and works wonders as a
sexual lubrication aid. It may be applied directly to the
skin or added to bathwater for year-round care.
Coconut oil is not greasy and soothes easily into
skin. Use before and after shampoo to add
sheen and prevent dry hair. It does not
leave you smelling like coconut.
