Frequently Asked Questions

Is Virgin Coconut Oil Naturally Solid or Liquid?

It is safe to say that it is both, depending on the temperature it is in. Virgin Coconut Oil has a melting point of 76˚F (24˚C) because of the molecular structure of the fatty acids it contains. Simply put, when in cold temperature (below 24˚C), virgin coconut oil solidifies. So it is naturally sold in cold temperature and naturally liquid/oil when in warm temperature.
It is very important to remember that the change in its molecular state (solid or oil) does not reduce its effectiveness and wonderful nutrients. No matter how many times they turn liquid/oil or solid

What is the ideal place to store virgin coconut oil?

During warmer climate, store it in room temperature and away from air-conditioned room, if you prefer oil. A cold, air-conditioned room would obviously harden the oil. Keep in the fridge if you prefer solid oil. In cold climate, keep in a warm/heated room. However, it would be harder to keep it in oil state so please remember that you can either melt it or use it in its solid form, which is absolutely glorious to use as well. You would be surprised that a solid virgin coconut oil, when applied onto warm skin would melt immediately upon contact.
