Uses of coconut oil

Coconut oil, which is obtained from the pulp of a nut, has been known as a cosmetic product since the time of Cleopatra. Now it is a more versatile product, because it has found application in the food industry and medicine.

The term "coconut oil" is commonly understood to mean vegetable oil obtained from the fruits of the coconut palm belonging to the Palm family. To obtain the product, the pulp of the nut is separated from the shell, dried, and then squeezed.

The composition of coconut oil is fatty acids, vitamins E and C, squalene and sterols. Together, these substances endow the product with value, thanks to which it has become widely used in several areas of human activity.

Varieties of coconut oil

There are several types of coconut oil, popular: unrefined and refined.

Unrefined is characterized by the presence of smell and taste. This coconut oil belongs to the "extra-luxury" class, as it retains most of the nutrients. After application, a light, unobtrusive scent remains on the skin.

Refined is the absence of smell and taste. Some of the nutrients lose their properties during the refining process, reducing the effectiveness of the product as a whole. However, there is still a benefit, so this coconut oil will also find use.
