Ultimate Moisturizer FAQ
1. IS THIS ANY DIFFERENT FROM COCONUT OIL YOU BUY AT THE GROCERY STORE?
Yes. This is raw, virgin, organic, unrefined, unbleached, undeodorized, centrifuged coconut oil and is not the same as regular coconut oil you get at the grocery store.
2. CAN I USE THIS PRODUCT TO PUT ON MY HAIR OVERNIGHT AND SHOWER THE NEXT MORNING?
Yes, it is 100% natural and safe to use and to leave on your hair overnight. This oil is the perfect leave in hair conditioner for soft and glossy hair. However, I would recommend using a shower cap or something to avoid oil on your pillow.
3. IS THIS PRODUCT IN SOLID OR LIQUID FORM?
This is an all-natural organic coconut oil and the state depends on the temperature. It melts at 76 degrees Fahrenheit. If you receive it in liquid form but want it solid, just put it in your refrigerator. If you want to melt it after you had it in your refrigerator, just take a little on your fingers and rub your fingers together and it will instantly melt. The state does not alter the natural profile or qualities of this oil in any way.
4. CAN I USE THIS AFTER A BATH IN THE MORNING BEFORE I GO TO WORK OR NOT REALLY BECAUSE IT SMELLS LIKE COCONUT?
You can certainly use it in the morning as a moisturizer. It has a mild tropical coconut aroma. The smell is not strong or overpowering at all.
5. CAN THIS BE USED FOR OIL PULLING?
Oil pulling is an ancient practice in Ayurvedic medicine, shown to naturally accelerate the body's detoxification process. Place 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in the mouth and swish for 20 minutes. Swishing activates enzymes and the enzymes draw toxins out of the blood. It is recommended to complete this process on an empty stomach, best in the morning. After 20 minutes, spit out the end product in the trash can and brush your teeth following this step. This will rev up your metabolism for the day and promote healthier gums and teeth due to the health-promoting saturated fatty acids found in coconut oil.
6. CAN I USE IT FOR MY HAIR?
You sure can. It is a wonderful hair deep conditioner. My wife, who is Indian, puts it on her dry hair and leaves it on for a couple of hours. She then washes it out and styles as usual. Her hair comes out soft, shiny and much less frizzy.
7. CAN THIS BE USED FOR LINES, PUFFINESS AND DARK CIRCLES UNDER THE EYES?
Unlike commonly used oils, raw coconut oil is rich in antioxidants that have been shown to help nourish the skin and neutralize free radicals. Due to its high lauric acid value and natural hydrating properties, our unrefined coconut oil assists with dark circles, as well as eye puffiness, to promote rejuvenated skin and a glowing complexion. Apply a tiny amount with your ring finger to gently tap around the eyes at bedtime, to prevent crow's feet.

16. CAN I USE THIS COCONUT OIL ON COLOR TREATED HAIR?

As each individual and his or health condition is unique, benefits may vary. We recommend applying the desired amount of coconut oil to the scalp 3-4 times per week before bedtime, to stimulate growth. You may wash your hair in the morning to remove any remaining oil.
