Does it matter if your skin is wet when rubbing?
Neil uses Virgin Coconut Oil in the shower or when the skin is dry.
Use as much as you need
Dr Bruce Fife, Mr Newport and Dr Mercola both point out that the skin is the largest organ of the body. Rubbing oil on it keeps it from drying out too much. Your skin may renew itself, which looks for all the world like you “reacted” to Virgin Coconut Oil, but that is VERY, VERY unlikely. Just persist.
The Smith family started using Coconut Oil because we thought it may have a positive effect on our children’s dry skin. The focus for us was on eating Coconut Oil, and using Virgin Coconut Oil in our cooking. But when we started to talk to people with little or no understanding of what Virgin Coconut Oil can for do them, the first thing they do is rub it on their top side of their hands.
So our focus was on cooking when we set up the online shop. But face to face customer interactions centred around the use of Virgin Coconut Oil on the hands.

Which brand is good for skin?
One of the big skin care Coconut Oil sets of questions we get is about brand. People ask us to recommend between types of Coconut Oil, and brands in our shop, etc. This is all well and good while the brand we recommend is available. Unfortunately, brands can go out of stock and some high quality oil is better than none.
As a general rule, we say that Ancient Wisdom absorbs on the skin rather well. But let’s see what one of our loyal customers thinks about White Gold.
“The White Gold is wonderful stuff. Have just recently bought a 3.25 [litre] pail from your shop. I concoct my own skin care from it as well. lovely for face and body.
