I use it for everything now. I have replaced vegetable oil, I put some in my coffee, I spread it on sandwiches instead of butter, I put it on my skin as a moisturiser and in my hair too.

I don't put it in my coffee but likewise, I use it for every thing it has 'cured' my eczema and believe it or not... My athletes foot.

Such a good price I've ordered some more even though I only got some delivered last week.

Very hot!

£18 for me as cheapest delivery is first class at £6 and the 20% code is invalid.

Is this coconut oil greasy on the skin or dry ? Asking as i bout the coco vita one and it drys very fast

Haven't ethnic shops been selling this for years for a fraction of the cost? I think its just another fad item in the UK

KTC 500ml tub is usually around £2.50-£3.00 mark at tesco.

I use Organic Costco coconut oil for cooks and works out cheaper at 1.5 L for £15.99. Costco have also started Kirkland brand which is cheaper and organic. If u don't have card and have Amazon prime then go for this offer.

I heard that Emu oil is the latest fad.

Coconut Oil from the current evidence is not harmful or excessively healthy even. It's an expensive oil that probably doesn't justify its expense. Remember why you're considering buying this, how do you know about it? why do you want it? The media/marketing behind this product is the answer to those questions.

I remember seeing Emu Oil in health food shops when I worked in London and that was 25+ years ago. Emu Oil was touted as a way to treat baldness, it's just marketing again, there's no reason to use it.

The real problem is when you get total scams such as treatments for Cancer, two completely unproven but popular treatments for Cancer are >

The majority of mark up isn't from the fact it's 'organic'. It's because it's raw/unrefined and coldcompressed. Using only pressure to extract oil is expensive. KTC etc will use chemicals and heat to get maximum oil out as cheaply as possible, oxidising (spoiling) the oil.

Some people are also concerned about the quality of costco's coconut oil;

It's £6 for 300mls in Sainsburys making it £20 for a litre.

Don't have to be prime member to get for £12... just ordered x2 with free super saver delivery for £24... Been looking for a decent price on this for a while... Thanks op

I'd be inclined to decant this into smaller containers to stop it going off so quickly.

Thanks just bought 2 Jars.

Never mind "ethnic" shops, you can by KTC coconut oil from Tesco at a fraction of this price. Of course it's not cold pressed but having seen coconuts drying in preparation for oil extraction, I really don't mind a bit of heat being involved in the process to clean things up.

ethnic shops? thanks for the tip Mr Garnet.

Very good quality, have a jar myself and it's one of the best I've ever bought. My protein pancakes fried in it taste superb. I like all the negative articles. Funny how I now find myself through use that Coconut Oil is the best thing to fry things in as well as butter. They reduce inflammation and so are better for your cholesterol levels than Flora or any other nut or seed oils.
As for the heart health, 80% of your hearts energy needs to come from fat. Fat is good for you, it's inflammation which is a killer. Caused by things like sugar! MCT's in coconut oil allow the fat to be used better as a source of energy, hence why putting coconut oil in your coffee instead of milk will give you a physical & mental boost. Google Bulletproof coffee for more on this amazing way to boost your coffee and your mind!

You can buy raw extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil from home bargains at £4 for 500ml currently.
Its definitely the real deal as i had a sniff and smells just like my £10 one from holland and barrets

The people saying it's just media hype, overpriced etc: try it before you dismiss it. The cheaper stuff is not the same and is only really good for cooking, whereas this can be used in many health and beauty applications, is healthy for the skin, great for massage (and sex), dries well (not 'greasy' or sticky like the cheap stuff, but soaks in and leaves a silky smooth feel).

This is not media hype, it's word of mouth. There's a big difference - I haven't seen a single ad or mention of coconut oil on the news - I heard of it from a friend who frequents BDSM sites where they use this for **** sex - hardly the mainstream media!

I'm no fan of Bulletproof they advocate a Bulletproof diet which is essentially a Paleo diet which is another fad along with Gluten free diet. The problem with all of these sites is they spew out information which looks scientific to make you want to buy in to their system.

If you don't have an adblocker on your PC you'll see plenty of ads for Coconut oil, it's mentioned everywhere. Also word of mouth is anecdotal evidence which is not scientific evidence.

I'm not in to BDSM, however I'd be skeptical why one plant based oil is significantly better than another for that application. Post up the scientific studies and we can discuss this further, otherwise it's just people going along with other people's beliefs, beliefs are not scientific evidence.

For a life long asthma sufferer, I cut out nut, oil and seed oils other than fish oil, butter and coconut oil. My asthma has now gone, mainly due to improved 3/6 ratio. Now free of asthma and living with 2 dogs which were previously a bad trigger. People sprout crap when they have nothing to show from real life!

Thanks OP, just ordered 2 jars. I use this stuff all the time for my two Shar Pei, it keeps their coats lovely and shiny.

Thanks, ordered 2 jars.

I use it on my dog when he has irritated skin. It also makes his black coat very glossy and helps with tats in his ears. That's if he will let me put it into him, as he lives the taste of it!

I'm glad you're well, you choose a multi-factorial approach to your condition. However it's still anecdotal. Cause and effect are too easily mistaken. If you remove Coconut Oil from your diet does your asthma return for example? I hope you understand what I'm saying here. Science is provisional and tentative but it's the best system we've come up with so far. Anecdotal evidence is not evidence. You would need to apply a scientific methodology to your condition to deduce which factor/s had effect.

Here's an example, the media (DailyMail et al) had an article on emotional pain and Paracetamol, here's the reason not to heed the article and take caution >

nhs.uk/new…spx

What I'm saying is that coconut oil may or may not be beneficial for certain conditions, but how do you reason the full effects and compare to much cheaper alternatives? You do this by referring to the science. Assumption is not science.

It doesn't go off quickly at all. Coconut oil is very stable.

Is this available in a 3 for 2 with aloe gel and acai berries? Total fad.

Expired? Seems to be £17.49 now

It's not a total fad, mct's are proven to be healthy. Coconut oil is the healthiest fat on the planet, next to ghee!
Nobody who advocates Muller Yoghurts & Red Bull offers, can really comment on health!
