Like all coconuts oils, Viva Labs Coconut Oil is packed full of medium chain healthy fatty acids that have excellent antibiotic, anti-fungal and anti-oxidant properties.

Viva Labs coconut oil does not only make an excellent health supplement for people, it is fantastic for dogs and cats too.

This coconut oil makes a fantastic alternative to butter, margarine, shortening and other cooking oils. It tastes delicious on toast and muffins, and goes well in smoothies. It can be used in baked goods to replace the butter, shortening or even eggs. It also makes an excellent cooking oil for stir fries. However, as Viva Labs coconut oil is unrefined, it is not suitable for very high heat cooking.

In addition to being used as a health supplement and in the kitchen, Viva Labs coconut oil can also be used as a skin and hair care product. It can be used as a deep conditioner for dry damaged hair; an anti-ageing skin cream; a massage oil or bath oil; to heal cracked heels; as an all over body lotion; for oil pulling; and as a shaving cream. It is superb for treating diaper rash in babies and works well on pets with dry irritated skin.
