Virgin Coconut Oil Versus Refined Coconut Oil

1. Color:  Virgin Coconut Oil has a water-like, clear color  while the refined one has a cloudy or yellow color which is the result of heat exposure at high temperature .

2. Absorption:  Virgin coconut oil, when applied to the skin, should be absorbed very quickly. A touch of the oil to the skin is light rather than sticky.

3. Extraction process: Look for “Virgin Coconut Oil” or “Extra Virgin Coconut Oil” This means that coconut oil is made from organic, fresh coconuts under a Cold Pressed process. And it’s 100% chemical free.  Refined coconut oil undergoes more extensive mechanical processing
