Now i wasn't really sure where to put this because i'm talking about oil quality and properties too....hair, skin and eating.....
This oil is apparently very popular in India for trusted quality etc, it boasts being made from good quality coconuts from the Kerala region, and being double filtered for purity. It does smell of coconuts, but it seems to smell a bit different to the virgin coconut oil i've brought in the past, but i know it's not fragranced.
So what i cant work out is if this is also virgin coconut oil, you see i thought the way to tell was by whether it smells or not. Also i'm wondering if it's made from copra, but, i thought oil from copra had to be bleached and deoderised and something else because it was kinda......manky unedible toxic stuff otherwise.
The reason i'm more bothered is that i am trying to include coconut oil in our diet (my dog and me) plus my sister has been eating virgin coconut oil from the health food shop to loose weight (so far she's lost loads, prolly 3 dress sizes i'd say) and this oil costs Ģ2.50 as opposed to Ģ10 for the same amount.....so if it's just as good and ives the same benefit then it's a real bargain (BTW that's the price i got it for in the shop, online tends to be a bit higher).
I've tried searches online but i can't find any info on how it's produced, although i saw it advertised by one place as being virgin coconut oil but i can't remember where.
Here's a link to show what the stuff is....
So, i'm wondering if any of you experts can help me out and tell me how it compares quality wise to the pricey virgin coconut oil?
I'm going Indian shop shopping on saturday (it's a bit of a trek so i try to stock up when i do go) and want to know if it's worth buying a load of this or not.
Right, if you got this far thanks for sticking with my ramblings! And any advice would be great!
