Coconut oil the highest smoke point of any natural oil (approx. 180°C) and is highly resistant to heat and light. This means that unlike other cooking oils, it won’t break down and lose its beneficial nutrients at high temperatures.
Please Note: Coconut oil is solid at room temperature but becomes liquid in warmer weather.
Health Benefits of Coconut Oil:
- Disease prevention: Lauric acid is antibacterial and antiviral, and helps to defend the body against infections. Coconut oil is the richest plant-based source of lauric acid.
- Immunity: The lipids in coconut oil are antimicrobial, and support a healthy immune system.
- Heart health: Saturated fatty acids like lauric acid are “good” fats; they work to regulate blood pressure and maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
- Weight loss: Contains fewer calories than any other oil; MCAs boost your metabolism and burn fat. Coconut oil also supports healthy thyroid function.
- Digestion: Coconut oil is easier to digest than hydrogenated cooking oils.
- Nutrient absorption: Improves your system’s ability to absorb other vitamins and minerals.
Did You Know? Apart from coconut oil, the only other known sources of lauric acid are laurel oil, palm kernel oil and human breast milk!

- Hair: Great as a hydrating hair mask or leave-in conditioner.

Use for beauty, cooking and oil pulling!05/08/2016, By IkhoGreat product, will be buying it again :)10/05/2016, By MaliekaI really love this product. I use it everyday. In my cooking, food etc. Even as a deodorant! Definitely value for money.20/04/2016, By SheenaAs a family, we have been using coconut oil for awhile, usually obtained from our local store which sells all sorts...so was particularly pleased to find it on FTN.
It is pure, and because it comes from FTN I believe the claims on its extraction process so am comforted that it is of the highest quality. Another point that confirms this is that you need only a small quantity as the quality is great.08/03/2016, By AnelI use this coconut oil (alternating with the Soil Stretch mark oil) for my pregnant belly. At 7 months my bellys skin looks so healthy, and no sign of stretch marks! It absorbs really well all over the skin, and love the subtle coconut scent. Lovely on dry hair ends too. The consistency is very thin, and feels like it really gets into the skin and hair.
For food, it is delicious in baked and no bake brownies, for frying bananas, cooling sweet potatoes, or any food that works with a mild coconut flavour. Ideal for cooking because of its health benefits even when used at higher temperatures.24/02/2016, By SarahMy mom and I use it and it is an amazing moisturizer and smells great21/11/2015, By HeidiYummy!
