All about Coconut Oil Skin Care

I bet you don’t know there is a difference.

Volcanic Earth only uses high grade Virgin Coconut Oil in all its products. The coconuts are organically grown in Vanuatu and no artificial chemicals, additives or preservatives of any kind are used in its production.

Most commercial grade coconut oils are made from copra. Copra is basically the dried meat of the coconut. It can be made by smoke drying, sun drying, or kiln drying, or derivatives or a combination of these three. If standard copra is used as a starting material, the unrefined coconut oil extracted from copra is not suitable for consumption and must be purified - i.e. refined. This is because the way most copra is dried is very unsanitary. Most of the copra is dried under the sun in the open air, where it is exposed to insects and moulds. The standard end product made from copra is RBD coconut oil. RBD stands for refined, bleached, and deodorized. Both high heat and chemicals (e.g. solvent extractions) are used in this method. RBD oil is also often hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated. Hydrogenated oils have been shown to increase serum cholesterol levels, which contribute to heart disease.

Our Virgin Coconut Oil can only be achieved through the DME Method. This stands for Direct Micro Expelling and our oil is handmade, natural, raw and produced by Volcanic Earth within one hour of opening the nut. Consequently, it retains the distinct fragrance and taste of coconuts, whereas the copra-based refined coconut oils have no taste or fragrance at all due to the refining process. In fact, coconut oil made this way will often have the "fragrance" added artificially! Our Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is not only naturally organic, it is also unhydrogenated, high in antioxidants (which fight free radicals that cause us to age faster) and free from impurities.

Our Virgin Coconut Oil is not only cosmetic grade but it is also manufactured to food-grade standards and it is not uncommon for customers to purchase more than one bottle - one for their coconut oil skin care requirements and the other for human consumtion for things like weight loss, Alheimers and so on.

Coconut Oil Reviews

"First off, I LOVE THE COCONUT OIL! The consistency is “cool” for lack of a better term, as I just scoop a bit out and once it hits my hands in that squishy solid matter it melts. I use that every night as I go to bed on my hands. The reason is that I never found an oil that actually absorbs. That to me is amazing. Usually they sit on the skin, this ABSORBS. Brilliant."

Kristina Estlund, Los Angeles, CA 90036

"On the Volcanic Earth Coconut Oil & Organic Skin Care Factory Tour you would have been attracted to the intoxicating aroma of beautiful, clear coconut oil as Donald and his team showed you just how real virgin coconut oil should be made. It’s fascinating to learn about the process and see it taking place right before your very eyes – the oi lis so fresh and clear like water. You would have been fascinated to learn how Volcanic Earth helped Donald and the other young men set up as young independent business entrepreneurs.  Oh and let’s not forget the wonderful smells coming from the skin care factory. The manufacturing staff make it all - everything from all of the multi-coloured coconut soaps to different types of moisturizers, body scrubs, cleansers, toners, massage creams and much more. All chemical –free and everybody is just so lovely and welcoming."

Kate Teasey, Shared Services Manager, Australia

This does make our coconut oil more expensive than those companies selling coconut oil made by the copra method, which produces more oil but chemicals must be used in the purification process.

Why is organic coconut oil generally the best type of oil for you to use on your skin?

The answer is free radicals.cosmetic and beauty benefits from virgin coconut oil

Most commercial creams and lotions are predominantly water. Their moisture is quickly absorbed into dry, wrinkled skin. As the water enters the skin, it expands the tissues, like filling a balloon with water, so that wrinkles fade away and the skin feels smoother. But this is only temporary. As soon as the water evaporates or is carried away by the blood stream, the dry, wrinkled skin returns.

Want to know how to look younger? As we age, connective tissue fibres are continually subjected to free-radical attack, which breaks them down. As a result, connective tissues become hardened and lose both elasticity and strength. The skin loses its ability to hold itself together and begins to sag and become wrinkled. Once young, soft and smooth the skin turns dry and leathery. Once a free-radical reaction is started it can cause a chain reaction that produces more free radicals, which ultimately damages thousands of molecules. The only way our body has to fight them is with antioxidants. When a free radical comes into contact with an antioxidant, the chain reaction is stopped. For this reason, it is good to have plenty of antioxidants in our cells and tissues to protect us.

Virgin Coconut Oil is especially useful in fighting free radicals, as it is unrefined and hasn't been stripped of any of its natural components through the refining process. Conventional body care products that are made with refined vegetable oils which have all the antioxidants stripped from them are highly prone to free-radical generation both in and outside the body. This is also the reason why you should be careful about the type of oils you use on your skin, and in your lotions, creams and lip balms. If you use a lotion, or cream with a refined oil in it you are in fact causing your skin to age faster. The lotion, though it may bring temporary improvement will actually accelerate the aging of the skin and even promote skin cancer through the free radicals that are readily formed from the refined vegetable oil.

One of the classic signs of old age is the appearance of brown, freckle-like spots or liver spots. It is a sign of free-radical deterioration of the lipids (fats) in our skin, thus the name lipofuscin. Oxidation of polyunsaturated fats and protein by free radical activity in the skin is recognized as the major cause of liver spots. Liver spots don't ordinarily hurt or show any signs of discomfort. If we couldn't see them we wouldn't even know they were there. But they do affect our health and our appearance. Because cells cannot dispose of the lipofuscin pigment, it gradually accumulates within many cells of the body as we age. Once lipofuscin pigment develops, it tends to stick around for life, but you can prevent further oscitation and perhaps even reduce liver spots you already have by using the right kind of oils in your diet and on your skin.

The ideal lotion is one that is made from oil that softens the skin, but also protects it against damage, promoting healing and giving the skin a more youthful, healthy appearance. Coconut oil fits that description. Pure virgin coconut oil is the best natural ingredient for skin lotion available. It prevents destructive free-radical formation and provides protection against them. It helps to keep connective tissues strong and supple so that the skin doesn't sag and wrinkle. In some cases it may even restore damaged or diseased skin.

Scented Coconut Oil

Virgin Coconut Oil can help keep the skin from developing liver spots, and other blemishes caused by aging and over exposure to sunlight. The oil is absorbed into the skin and into the cell structure of the connective tissues, limiting the damage excessive sun exposure can cause. While it is not a natural sunblock, Coconut Oil IS the perfect, natural treatment for relieving sunburn and is itself, a natural exfoliant.

Is sedimentation a natural phenomenon in pure coconut oil?

Yes, sedimentation is a natural phenomenon in pure Coconut Oil since the manufacturing process involves only filtering, minute invisible suspended matter (which is also protein) settles to the bottom of the bottle when kept idle over a long period of time. This sediment is absolutely pure, is safe to consume and forms part of natural pure Coconut Oil.

Coconut Oil Skin Care will not only bring temporary relief to the skin, but it will aid in healing and repairing. Experience the lasting coconut anti-aging benefits. Coconut Oil skin elasticity helps bring back a youthful appearance. The oil will aid in removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, making the skin smoother. The skin will become more evenly textured with a healthy "shine". As a natural moisturizer, coconut oil also penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin to strengthen the underlying tissues. Unrefined coconut oil is not only excellent for the skin, but for hair as well.

Virgin Coconut Oil is also known to help protect against degenerative disease, heart disease, arthritis, cancer and diabetes.

If you're not using coconut oil for your daily body care needs you're missing out on one of
nature's most amazing health and beauty foods!
