Wood pressed / Cold pressed coconut oil
Coconut Oil- Kerala’s favourite cooking oil has slowly gained world recognition for its wonderful health benefits. Coconut oil is one of the only cooking oils that have a unique shorter fatty- acid chain structure in the form of MCT’s- Medium Chain Triglycerides which is immediately used by the body upon consumption to produce energy that is primarily used by the brain. MCT’s in coconut oil also make it a weight-loss-friendly oil when eaten in moderation. Coconut oil is rich in natural saturated fats (acts in a different manner as compared to normal unhealthy saturated fats) which according to a few studies may help increase good cholesterol levels and support a healthier heart. The high lauric acid content of coconut oil (around 50%) lends it anti-bacterial properties that enables coconut oil to be used for oil-pulling and reduce eczema symptoms. Cold pressed coconut oil is also a well- known superstar for skin health (all-round-moisturiser) and hair health (imparts shine and strength to hair).
Note: People with acne-prone skin should avoid using coconut oil on their face due to its highly comedogenic nature.
