The Benefit of Virgin Coconut Oil
Virgin coconut oil is widely recognised for its healing properties for ages. It is suitable for all skin and hair types, and is especially beneficial for dry skin and hair.
It has an excellent anti-inflammatory property that can help to heal wounds, blisters, and rashes plus helping to soothe razor burn after shaving. Virgin coconut oil can help chapped lips and calm down irritation for eczema and dermatitis.
Virgin coconut oil helps to combat dandruff and restore lustre and shine to dry and damaged hair. It is excellent to be used as a pre-shampoo treatment for scalp and hair.
The practice of ‘oil-pulling’ helps to cares for teeth and gums by reducing bacteria, control plaque, and fight decay and infection. Just swish a tablespoon of virgin coconut oil in the mouth for 20 minutes.
Natural beauty oils like virgin coconut oil is an excellent makeup remover and has been a great choice as natural makeup remover that is not harsh for the skin due to the absence of alcohol.
For aromatherapy, virgin coconut oil is one of the favourite carrier oil of choice as it is considered to be a light-based oil with fine texture, non-greasy and easily absorbed into the skin. It has a delicate to subtle aroma that will not compete with the essential oils in a blend.
Why naturally fermented virgin coconut oil?
This new and improved version of virgin coconut oil is extracted from fresh coconut milk via natural fermentation. The coconuts are obtained from local farmers in Borneo. This naturally fermented virgin coconut oil is better than the traditional cold-pressed virgin coconut oil or other varieties because it is so much lighter and easily absorbed into the skin. It is not as viscous or sticky as most of the gums are removed during fermentation.
It has a mild, fresh, and pleasant coconut aroma that is not too over-powering compared to our previous version, which was cold-pressed. This makes naturally fermented virgin coconut oil more acceptable to be used as natural body oil, massage oil, or even as a carrier oil to dilute essential oils.
Through the natural fermentation method, this virgin coconut oil retains a higher level of antioxidants (phenolic
compounds) and contain more than 60% medium-chain fatty acids (MFCAs).
How is virgin coconut oil obtained through natural fermentation?
Coconut milk is pressed from fresh mature coconut meat and separated through the fermentation process. Through natural fermentation, the coconut milk is allowed to sit for up to 24 hours for the oil to separate without the addition of any bacteria or yeast. At the end of fermentation, the oil will appear near the top due to its lighter weight. The virgin coconut oil is then harvested and purified through a centrifuge.
Why is naturally fermented virgin coconut oil rare?
The process of extracting virgin coconut oil through the naturally fermented process is tedious and requires 2-3 days to obtain the oil. Other methods, like the cold-pressed method, are able to obtain coconut oil in less than a day. The natural fermentation method is one of the most traditional methods of producing virgin coconut oil, which requires a lot of attention, care, and knowledge.
The process also requires the use of very fresh coconut kernel in order to obtain high-quality virgin coconut oil. All the processing steps have to be done on the same day itself. Another tedious task using this natural fermentation process is the inability to extract or produce virgin coconut oil in high volume, which makes it more labour intensive with a longer period of time to produce.
Virgin coconut oil will tend to solidify in colder temperature. If you place your bottle of virgin coconut oil in an air-conditioned room, do not be alarmed when you find that it turns into a white solid or semi-solid form. Simply place the bottle in a normal room temperature (for a tropical weather country) and it will return to its liquid form.
Always do a patch test on a small area on the inner arm or behind the neck for a few days before using it fully for the whole body. If irritation occurs, please discontinue use. Please consult a physician if irritation symptoms persist.
