Maison Orphee coconut oil is of the highest quality. It's organic, pearly white, gorgeous, delicious, and comes in a glass jar. Coconut oil is about 50 percent lauric acid, a rare medium-chain fatty acid found in mother's milk that supports healthy metabolism and is now being studied for its anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial, health-protecting properties. This oil is cold pressed and unrefined, with a pleasant coconut aroma and light taste. Besides its nutritional value, Maison Orphee Organic Coconut Oil offers a luscious and soothing massage and body oil for dry and or damaged skin, meaning there are also topical benefits of coconut oil. It can be used on the skin to remove makeup, moisturize and relieve dried or itchy skin. Maison Orphee Organic Coconut Oil can also be used on the hair and scalp for a deep conditioning and moisturizing treatment.
