What's the Craze about goPURE Fractionated Coconut Oil?

I've been using Coconut Oil for oil pulling for a little while now, but, I was overly excited when I received my Free bottle of Fractionated Coconut Oil from goPURE naturals to review. So, I definitely want to thank them. You can purchase their products from or . So let's take a look at the great things about this product.

So what exactly is Fractionated Coconut Oil? It is a method used to keep regular coconut oil from turning rancid, in order to do this there is a refining process that involves the conversion of solidified oil from coconut meat into a clear to somewhat yellowish liquid. This process extracts the harmful fatty acids and leaves the healthier acids, so it is mostly composed of capric and caprylic acids.

The long shelf-life, stability and rancidity-resistant properties make it well worth the price.
It comes packaged, first of all, so there are no spills, and trust me I have received products that were not packaged properly.  The value is great, since you receive a 16 oz. bottle and you only have to use so little.

Now for the benefits of using fractionated coconut oil. There are so many reports about the effects of coconut oil, and I am sure that you have read at least one.  Cosmetic companies use it in the preparation of soaps, lotions, ointments and other cosmetics. It can be used as a carrier oil, since it facilitates the absorption of other oils. It can be used for its antiseptic and disinfectant properties. It is used in cooking, because as discussed before,  it doesn't go rancid  easily and is very stable. But, let's talk about why I like to use it most for a moment. 


Coconut oil can be used to treat scalp conditions including sebhorreic dermatitis, dry scalp and other fungal conditions. 

The most beneficial attribute of coconut oil to me, is it's long association with healthy hair growth and thick glossy hair. It can stimulate circulation on the scalp which contributes to hair growth. The coconut oil penetrates into the cortex according to the "Journal of Cosmetic Science." 

So, if your hair is thinning and you are despairing about it, a combination of castor oil & coconut oil may be beneficial to you. However, this is just a suggestion;  if thinning hair persists you need to see a dermatologist.

What I use is a few drops of black castor oil to 1 ounce of fractionated coconut oil, which can be used as a hot oil treatment. Apply it generously to your hair, and cover with a warm towel or shower cap and leave in hair for about 2 hours for a deep condition. Coconut oil shields hair protein, seals in moisture, it has ant-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, it's nutrient rich and improves circulation. The castor oil is rich in ricinoleic acid and it's omega-9 fatty acid is  highly beneficial  for hair cells.) 

I love goPURE Coconut oil, because it's not very oily and doesn't have a strong smell, and left my hair extremely moisturized with lots of body. 


Another thing that I love to use goPURE Fractionated Coconut Oil for are to grow my eyelashes, so that I don't need falsies. Coconut oil has natural pulling action that draws out impurities and enters the eyelash follicles to stimulate growth. It also absorbs easily into the skin making it ideal for topical therapies.

All you need is a 10 ml roller bottle, add 1 drop of lemon oil, 1 drop of lavender oil, and top it off with goPURE fractionated coconut oil, mix it by shaking vigorously. Apply regularly and watch your lashes grow.
