I got this to soften my feet I have diabetes and my feet keep cracking so far a lot less cracking I've used it on my hands and my arms I'm very happy with the product! ☯☪♥🌾
I tried really hard to like this stuff for cooking, but I am just not a fan. You have to use a knife to get it out and get it on the pan, rather than just being able to pour it out. Unlike other oils, it also overpowers the flavor of the food so all you taste is coconut. It also tends to splatter a lot when it gets hot, making it a mess to clean up after cooking.Tried using it for skin, hair and nails, but it didn't seem to work for me. Just made me super oily and still dry.
I love the smell of it! My skin and nails are so dry and after putting this on my skin just soaked it all in! I put it on my hair on the weekends and after I shampoo and dry my hair feels thicker and smoother. Seriously if you have dry skin this is a great alternative to lotions. I just want to eat this! It's smells so yummy! I haven't tried it in any foods but from other reviews it's good in coffee and great for cooking. I'm a about to try it with some scrambled eggs.
Nice smell, thick oil, and smooth texture penetrate deep as skin lotion.
This is great coconut oil.
Buy be awareQ. I have started noticing more coconut oil at the grocery store and have heard it is better for you than a lot of other oils. Is that true?A. I've also noticed that coconut oil seems to be catching on these days. Coconut oil is about 90% saturated fat, which is a higher percentage than butter (about 64% saturated fat), beef fat (40%), or even lard (also 40%). Too much saturated fat in the diet is unhealthy because it raises "bad" LDL cholesterol levels, which increases the risk of heart disease. So it would seem that coconut oil would be bad news for our hearts.But what's interesting about coconut oil is that it also gives "good" HDL cholesterol a boost. Fat in the diet, whether it's saturated or unsaturated, tends to nudge HDL levels up, but coconut oil seems to be especially potent at doing so.Saturated fat is divided into various types, based on the number of carbon atoms in the molecule, and about half of the saturated fat in coconut oil is the 12-carbon variety, called lauric acid. That is a higher percentage than in most other oils, and is probably responsible for the unusual HDL effects of coconut oil. But plant-based oils are more than just fats. They contain many antioxidants and other substances, so their overall effects on health can't be predicted just by the changes in LDL and HDL.Coconut is a wonderful flavor and there's no problem using coconut oil occasionally. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, so cooks are experimenting with using it instead of butter or vegetable shortening to make pie crust and other baked goods that require a solid source of fat. And if you're preparing a Thai dish, cooking with coconut oil may be essential.But, for now, I'd use coconut oil sparingly. Most of the research so far has consisted of short-term studies to examine its effect on cholesterol levels. We don't really know how coconut oil affects heart disease. And I don't think coconut oil is as healthful as vegetable oils like olive oil and soybean oil, which are mainly unsaturated fat and therefore both lower LDL and increase HDL. Coconut oil's special HDL-boosting effect may make it "less bad" than the high saturated fat content would indicate, but it's still probably not the best choice among the many available oils to reduce the risk of heart disease.— Walter C.

Smells great! I like this item.
As others have said, smells absolutely rancid. Made my skin and hair super dry. Definitely not pure.
Coconut oil has been solidified and applying it to your crusty feet, to make it soft.
Trying to user natural products for my skin and this nhasd been great ! In wish it was a little cheaper but it's great still .
Great product! I use it to remove my makeup
I use this as a moisturizer keeps my skin nice & supple.
Leave my skin moisturized and smells great! I also used this to cook for the first time and it worked well, didn’t leave a bad after taste! Would recommend!
It’s like normal n organic to buy
Pay attention to size...container is much smaller than I anticipated.
I was going to leave a bad review then I researched cold pressed coconut oil...Seller should lead with that as most people is expecting the creamy white paste.
Just like any other coconut oil
I used it for various things. Good product
This coconut oil is great, I use it frequently for all sorts of uses. They also have superb customer service at Viva Naturals.
1st time purchasing coconut oil,got it mainly for my skin&so glad I did. With other drying face products I use&it being winter time I know my skin would be flaking w/o it because my moisturizers just weren’t cutting it. I don’t drink water at all,i’m a bit dehydrated&my skin was def showing it,add in that itz freezing cold outside&the products frm my Derm were drying out my skin even more I know my skin would be a disaster,my face was so dry that I felt it added a few yrs&u could see every line on my face especially with makeup applied. My face isn’t perfectly moisturized but got a lot better since using this product so will continue 2 do so,I’m worried bout breaking out so I don’t keep it on my skin but I might try it because I haven’t had any bad effects yet might just use a way smaller amount,usually I leave it on my face at least 15min&wash it off but it’s def helped add some moisture back to my skin,still a bit dry but nothing like before,will continue using it....(just to mention products from my Derm is to help with acne so you know those can be drying,cerve was my go 2 moisturizer all spring/summer but now I need to step it up)
