Four. How to choose coconut oil for your skin

There are several types of coconut oil. Here are some tips for choosing good coconut oil.

4-1. Check for food or skincare

Coconut oil currently exists in "edible" and "skincare" types.

There is no problem in using edible coconut oil for skincare, but it is recommended to use either edible oil or cosmetic oil according to your intake method. Whether it is "edible" or "cosmetics/skincare" is displayed on the back of the package. Please check it before purchasing!

4-2. Choose an oil that gives you the aroma and quality of the coconut itself

If you are using coconut oil, we recommend that you feel the aroma and quality of coconut itself.

Here are some tips for choosing such coconut oil.

① Select the extraction method "cold press" (cold press)

"Cold press" is the best choice for extracting coconut oil.

It is said that "cold-pressed" coconut oil is a method that can be squeezed out of the undiluted mixture of oil, milk, and water without applying heat to the coconut pulp itself.

② Select one that has received "organic certification"

When choosing coconut oil, it is recommended that you pay attention to brands that have received "organic certification".

Coconut oil may be processed to dilute its unique colour and scent, and some companies use chemical ingredients and additives in the process, so it is important to choose coconut oil with the "organic mark".


Coconut (English: coconut) is the fruit of the coconut, a monocotyledonous plant of the palm family. It is also called coconut or simply the fruit of coconut.


The fruit is wrapped in a thick fibrous shell with large seeds in a hard shell. The inside of the seed is occupied by a large endosperm and is divided into a solid endosperm in the peripheral part and a liquid endosperm in the central part.

The unripe fruits eat the solid endosperm raw, and the liquid endosperm is drunk as coconut juice.

A product obtained by shaving and drying the endosperm of the mature fruit is called copra and is an important raw material for coconut oil. Coconut, which is a material for Western confectionery, is a small amount of copra and is sometimes used with a sweet taste. Coconut milk, which is made by soaking raw mature fruit endosperm or copra in water, is called coconut milk and is white and rich in fat.

Note that coconut milk (coconut juice) used as a medium for plant tissue culture is a liquid endosperm of immature fruits, and is different from coconut milk derived from copra used for cooking. From the outer skin, a strong natural fibre called coconut fibre is obtained and processed into ropes and mats.

The shells are processed and used as tableware, crafts, or raw fuel.


It can be seen that coconut has a lot of water-soluble dietary fibre, but the amount of water-soluble dietary fibre in coconut chips and coconut powder is very small, and most of them are insoluble dietary fibre [1]. Most of them are occupied by cellulose [2].
