Properties of Coconut Oil

You extract coconut oil from copra. Copra is the dried inner flesh of the coconut. There are many properties of coconut oil that makes it a wonderful choice to use in your bath and body products. There are three fatty acids that make up this oil: capric acid, lauric acid, and caprylic acid. These fatty acids can provide many great benefits for your skin. There are many healthy saturated fats that make up coconut oil. These saturated fats have been known to promote weight loss and provide your body and brain with quick energy.

There are two types of coconut oils carried at Nature’s Garden: Coconut Oil 76 and Fractionated Coconut Oil. Fractionated coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides that allow it to stay liquid at lower temperatures than the coconut oil 76. Coconut oil 76 also contains more fatty acids like: Myristic, Palmitic, and Stearic which give it different properties. One of the properties is that it doesn’t blend in with other oils as well as fractionated coconut oil does. Both forms of coconut oil have their own benefit, it’s up to you to decide which one you need.
