What is the Difference Between Coconut Oil and Coconut Butter?

—  found in  Beauty  —

This is a question I often get asked as a nutritionist and there seems to be a lot of confusion on the matter. I've put together this lovely graphic and short video to clearly explain the coconut confusion!

Be sure to watch all the way through as it is really important to make sure your coconut oil is "hexane free". Learn more about this dirty petroleum based chemical in my video.

If you want to learn more about the health benefits of coconut oil, you can take a look atthis article.

What are some of your favourite ways to use coconut oil and coconut butter?

Is the oil is certified organic, does that mean it is also hexane free? Mine is certified organic, but there is no mention of "hexane free."

Aurelie I buy my coconut oil at Costco and it is hexane free. I just checked.

Thank you Joy for clarifying this and the facts about Coconut Oil. I just bought LouAnn's from Walmart and have used it for a while now. Knowing what I do now, I'll return the new one I bought and will look at Costco (recommended by Nancy - another commenter). You are the best. LG

I Use it as a face or body moisturizer. Many women use it to improve and to prevent the appearance of stretch marks.Coconut oil has many reported benefits. It is associated with specific positive health effects and can act as an aid in certain body functions.

Hi there, I was looking at the nutiva brand of coconut oil. They changed the package and it doesn’t say it hexane free. Is it still good or there are other oil?
