Coconut oil is a great substitute for shortening and other cooking oils. With a smooth, mild flavor, we love cooking with our Refined Coconut Oil, made simply with premium organic coconuts. No added sugar, just pure, sweet coconut, exactly as nature intended. And while it's ideal for sauteing or baking (at medium-high heat). here's a beauty secret for you: it's also widely used as a gentle moisturizer and even conditioner for hair. Talk about a multi-purpose pro.
