Superdrug Coconut Oil helps condition the skin, scalp and dry or damaged hair. This natural product is solid at room temperature but will gently melt on contact with your skin.

I know these ones aren't as big as the tubs from Tescos that was on here the other week but they are no longer available, seems all the greedy ebayers have had them and flogging them at ridiculous prices with excessive postage prices! So this is the next best alternative i can find.

£2.29 or £2.99 for two.

avoid avoid avoid avoid,

this is heavily refined (chemically seperated and heated to extreme temperatures and pressurised). This will not even smell of coconut

Buy virgin organic and the difference is chalk and cheese

Also, avoid this if you want it for COOKING as it is refined and thus pointless.
The reason you cook with it is it's much higher smoke point. The smoke point of an oil or fat is the temperature at which it begins to break down to glycerol and free fatty acids. Whilst olive oil is healthy it's smoke point is lower so when cooking it's more likely to become unhealthy. If the coconut oil is refined it has been heated to extreme temperatures already and thus already rubbish

I'v been advised to go to whole foods to get it.
Picked it up from H&B instead as I was in there but at a more expensive price

Ordered to use on my hair. Too much hair dye so I'm hoping this will repair or help some of the damage I've done! Hopefully!

Good deal at 2 for £2.99 - thank you!

please tell me no one would use a moisteriser for cooking oO

It is not a moisturiser, it is an oil. You can buy moisturisers with coconut oil in, but on its own it is perfectly fine to use for cooking and is claimed to have many health benefits for you. As others have said the organic, virgin coconut oil is the better option both for eating and putting onto your skin, I am going to invest in some once I have the money spare as I have only read good things about it

Any natural oil used in cooking can be used on your skin. Hence massagers will often use a veg/nut oil as a carrier, mixed with an essential oil for it's particular properties. If it's good enough to put in...it's good enough to put on. (ButNOT vice versa...please!)

Aloe vera and cocoa butter make an appearance in lots of skin products. Both edible in purest forms.

Also if you do a quick Google search about Coconut oil you can find out it is not only for hair at all. I used to work in Holland and Barrett and people bought it to cook with and also used it instead of butter, as well as for their hair and skin.

Well put. Thought the extra virgin organic stuff is expensive and it didn't last me long :-( I just eat it straight, rub it in my locks and on my skin and cook with it, its amazing stuff.

Go for extra virgin organic leave this rubbish alone.

Organic virgin coconut oil has a low smoke point, very similar to extra virgin olive oil. It shouldn't be used to cook at high temperatures. Low-medium on the stove or below gas mark 4 in the oven. When people refer to it's high smoke point they are referring to refined coconut oil which has a much higher smoke point, as with all refined oils.

I use the refined stuff in my hair as a moisturiser, £1.69 ktc for 500g at sainsburys.

Yes but this is Superdrug we're talking about, you'd hardly go into superdrug to find some cooking oil...

lol @ Johnvile...have an image of you cooking a coconut oil fry up with grease ladened hair and skin

Wouldn't take this rubbish for free!! Buy Coconoil and you can use it for your face, hair, cooking and frying etc, etc, etc!! The list is endless!!

Hair? Cooking? Last time I used coconut oil was during a really filthy session.

Voted hot, thanks for reviving the memory.

if it is sold as a skin product then it doesn't have to meet food safety standards and can have undeclared ingredients.

That is why people have stated that the organic, virgin coconut oil is the better version to buy, not only to cook with but also to use on your skin and hair. The place where Superdrugs sources their coconut oil is probably the same place as where all the other refined coconut oils are produced that you can find at supermarkets and other shops, which people have used for cooking without knowing that it is not as good for you as the organic version.

Nobody said that you should cook with this specific product from Superdrug, however it is completely fine to cook with the unrefined coconut oil which is what people have stated

i do understand the uses of coconut oil for a range of things, however i was referring to this product which is advertised for hair i would not avoid this product at all like orca has stated as i just want it for my dry scalp and have no intention to use it for cooking, especially being from superdrug and is listed for its dry scalp benefits. it would most certainly have ingredients that you could not use to cook with, hence they do not stipulate that it is multi purpose. Im sure my hair Will enjoy it though!

my sister would have loved this, she tries all sort of oil on her hair, currently trying castor oil but has used cocunut, almond argan...u name it, shes treid it, although i dont use anything i do have to say her hair has improved, looks and feels healthy and has grown in length...shame its oos will look instore

Try Mobil-oil on ur hair instead of this.....
Smokin BBQ too
