    I have been using this as a face wash (mixed with warm water) and as a moisturizer! I have oily and breakout prone skin, and also some acne scarring. I never thought I would be able to go without makeup again, but using this has enabled me to do just that! It's awesome. It doesn't make me break out because it is naturally anti-bacterial and non-clogging. Highly recommended. The VS brand was the cheapest but still highest quality.

      I use it as a face & body moisturizer; as well as a face cleanser. I have sensitive skin and easily breaks out and it has only helped clear my blemishes. I also use it to cook in replacement of olive oil. Superior ingredient and I fully recommend this to everyone! There are so many uses for Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.

      This product made my dogs go crazy. I really enjoyed cooking with it, using it after my shower, using in my hair. Coconut oil makes food taste amazing. My food was very flavorful. My dogs was trying to jump on the counter to get to it. So they loved it too.

        Comments about Vitamin Shoppe Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil - 29 Ounces Solid:

        I switched from using olive oil for cooking to this coconut oil about a year ago when my research showed that when heated olive oil loses most of its health benefits. Not only is this oil delicious it has improved my cholesterol profile dramatically. I have tried other brands but this has the best natural flavor and makes everything that you cook in it delicious!

              I take a tablespoon of coconut oil every morning before I work out; it gives me the energy I need to work out. I have read about all of the health benefits about coconut oil and decided to try it. I stopped using CLA since using this product and have noticed a difference! I have seen some differences in bodyfat composition. While gradual, I have seen a reduction in belly fat. I will start taking 2 tablespoons/day to increase the results I have seen so far. Great Product!!!

                  Comments about Vitamin Shoppe Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil - 29 Ounces Solid:

                  I purchased this to add to a natural skin regimen that i have embarked on and was to use this as a moisturizer. Well, let me tell you how this not only exacerbated the little acne i had but caused additional horrible postules and breakouts in places that i never experienced acne ever in my life.
                  I even tried to just use it on my hair after i stopped on my skin (because i've used coco oil on my natural hair in the past) but even that caused a ring of breakouts along the outline of my face!! IT WILL NEVER BE INCLUDED IN MY SKIN OR HAIR CARE REGIMEN AGAIN!! :-(

                  I really wanted it to work for me because i have heard others say that it is great for the skin--just not mine.

                      It also has MCT's, Medium Chain Triglycerides which aid the body in healing.

                        We've tried three different brands of coconut oil, and this is BY FAR the best! It has a true coconut aroma and taste while the other brands we've used didn't have either.

                        We have used it in cooking to replace other oils and fats with great results. We have used it to moisturize hair and skin. It even makes a great "personal lubricant" for intimacy!

                        We don't have any complaints about this product, and we have recommended it to lots of friends and family. Our highest recommendation!

                                I have been using this for years as a skin cream, great for curing dry skin. I sometimes use it for cooking when I run out of my kerry gold butter(made from grass fed cows in ireland). For a month now about 3 times a day I eat about 1 spoonful, it helps to control appetite and Ive lost about 20 pounds. This is the best coconut oil Ive found. Buy it and you won't be disappointed!

                                            I did tons of research on curing yeast infections on external skin (ie when a guy gets one), and everything told me to try putting coconut oil on it to cure it. This product is excellent quality. Just a note, in colder temperatures this product is solid, in warmer temperatures it's liquid. Doesn't take much to warm it up. This product has so many uses.

                                                This is great for cooking with food, popping popcorn, using instead of butter in a lot of baking (cookies and sweet breads)

                                                    I am currently on the HCG diet and coconut oil is the ONLY oil allowed on this diet. I absolutely love it! I saute` veggies in it, I cook fish, chicken and shrimp in it as well! It taste great and is very good for you! The price is right and the shelf life is great also.

You can cook with it too. Also, use 1 spoon three times a day before meals and you will loose weight. Just be careful you might have to go to the bathroom more often. Try 1 to 2 spoons and go up to 3. Oh...my friend uses coconut oil to control yeast infections. She drink 3 tablespoons. Good Stuff! There is many books about Coconut Oil and it's benefits.

                                                        brittany d: This is a cold pressed coconut oil, it's suppose to be in a solid state. I like the solid state, i have not used mine for ingestion. I use the coconut oil as a moisturizer, a base for homemade masks, and a leave in overnight conditioner for my hair. The coconut oil goes from a solid to liquid state just with body temp. It takes very little heat to turn it into a liquid, which is why the label says to store in a cool dry place. It would be difficult to store this product at a liquid state(and keep it fresh) so i suggest if you are using for cooking, just heat up what little bit you need, it easily scoops out of the container! Hope that was helpful! Feb 5, 2013

                                                        Rosselys G: Are you using this oil for cooking? I am, and all you have to do is put the approprite amount on a pan (or pot whatever you use to cook) and it melts in seconds and it turns into liquid.

                                                        I would think that once it turns liquid you can let it cool down and pour it into a plastic container.

                                                        If you are using this product for the hair, i am not sure how that works yet. You know how they say coconut oil is good for hair...

                                                        As far as the self life, i am not sure, but i think i do remember seeing an expiration date on it. Check the container.

                                                        Hope this helped.

                                                        Chana H: My coconut oil arrives solid and stays solid in my pantry. I keep a small container of it in the bathroom to use as moisturizer; If I set it near my small bathroom heater for a short time, it liquifies quickly, then solidifies again as it sits in the cool room.
                                                        I have never had any issues with freshness. I have actually gotten it in liquid form, only to have to solidify; I suspect that it goes back and forth several times before we purchase it. So it appears to have a long shelf life regardless. The warmth or coolness of the environment determines the form.

                                                        Norma C: I can not answer all your question but... I use a TBSP. in smoothies as well as adding to my coffee in the morning as it very nutritious and I enjoy my morning coffee so much more. I blend it up along with a TBSP. of organic unsalted butter with a immersion blender. It looks as though it has cream in it. It gives much more energy to start the day. I also use it for pan frying.

                                                        In the summer time it becomes more liquid. You can heat the jar in a pan of water if you must have it in liquid form.

                                                        Rebecca N: Hi Patricia,

                                                        I've read that it's perfectly safe to store coconut oil on the pantry shelf; however, I always store my coconut oil in the refrigerator and, when I need to use it, take it out for an hour or so. before hand. It will soften, then I place it back in the refrigerator.

                                                        I love the Coconut Oil... It's fabulous for everything!!

                                                        Take care...
                                                        Rebecca

                                                        Jim K: If you warm it slightly, it should liquify for you. If you place the jar in lukewarm water, that should be sufficient. (It is usually liquid just standing on the counter during the summer.)

                                                        We usually just store it on the counter or in a cabinet, and have had no problems. We usually use up a jar within a few months, so I can't tell you the shelf life.

                                                        Julie L: It will liquify at around 80 degrees. During the summertime in my pantry, it is almost always a liquid. It will stay fresh for a very long time either way. I use it for making popcorn (the best) on the stove, and just scoop it into the kettle - it liquifies almost instantly. Also, as a moisturizer, it will liquify quickly if you just hold it between your palms. Feb 5, 2013

                                                        Shannon A: It should be stored as a solid at room temperature. It will become liquid if the temperature increases above 75 degrees (I think that's the temp). If you touch it with your hands, it will liquify fast (for use on skin or hair). Or you cook with it, it will melt like butter. Feb 5, 2013

                                                        STEPHANIE S: I take 1 tablespoon of coconut oil a day for weight loss. I normally put 1 tablespoon in fry my eggs or whatever fry food I am making for breakfast. You can use it to cook any type of food if you do not feel like taking a tablespoon each day. You can also use it instead of margarine. Jan 21, 2013

                                                        Also great for your skin and hair as an overnight moisturizer.

                                                        Julia P: Sad to admit I don't know what BPA is, so hard to answer the question!

No yeast, corn, wheat, sugar, salt, starch, dairy, citrus, soy, fish, preservatives, artificial colors of flavors added. It is non-GMO.
