    I am in USA, and looking for trustworthy brand of "Cold-Pressed" Coconut Oil (this article explains what cold-pressed is, Guide to Cold Pressed Oils: Would You Replace Them With Cooking Oils?)

    Dr says use cold-pressed coconut oil to repair skin barrier. My parachute coconut oil is not cold-pressed :-(

    I am going to local supermarkets and do not see "Cold-Pressed" Coconut Oil.

    When I search online, all I see is array of different brands. But which is best? Can anyone create coconut oil and say it's cold pressed.

    Virgin coconut oil retains high nutritional values (unlike the regular expeller pressed oil that’s extracted from dried copra using a high temperature). This oil is traditionally made from freshly extracted coconut milk either by cooking the milk low heat or through a series of freezing sessions.Cooking the coconut milk to extract the oil is an ancient technique that’s widely used in Kerala homes.They use it for skin, hair and cooking. Parachute also produces cold pressed coconut oil sold in glass jars apart from the regular expeller pressed oil sold in blue plastic bottles.Its available online and at the Indian stores. I have tried this one.

    There’s Nutiva unrefined virgin coconut oil too. My friend uses it for skin,hair, cooking and she loves it.https://www.amazon.com/Nutiva-Cold-...uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl
    They also have a steam refined version that she uses for deep frying. I tried Nutiva too.

    I highly recommend this Jivaorganicfoods | Jiva Organics Virgin Coconut Oil
    This oil is pure,unrefined made from fresh coconut milk (not copra). I have been using this and I love it. I find it at my local Indian stores.

    Whole Foods ............... There is a certain special type of people who go to Whole Foods.

    Same with Trader Joe's.

    I braved the cold weather and got Trader Joe's Coconut Oil (cold-pressed)

    How I love these places ............. Hope it shall help repair skin barrier ----- specially in this cold cold winter months!!!!!
