    Hi Susan. The code date is a “best by date” for best quality as food use. After this date, the product my start to develop off flavors. For other uses than food, which utilize the fatty acid distribution such as for topical application, the product should still be okay to use.

    Hi Eric. During hot summer months, coconut oil will remain liquid if stored at 78 degrees F or higher. There is no need to refrigerate LouAna Coconut Oil, unless you prefer it to be in its solid form.

    How is the LouAna Pure Coconut Oil refined?

    Elaine, if you haven’t searched for it yet or found anything else online about coconut oil, you can use it for many things!! I’m actually conducting an experiment on the effects of coconut oil on cold sores and types of Staphylococcus. I know that it can be used to treat a multitude of bacterial infections. Other than its many medicinal uses, coconut oil can be used in your beauty regimen as a deep hair conditioner, Eye make up remover, cuticle oil, facial moisturizer (VERY LIGHT APPLICATION), as well as many other uses. I was told that it fights bacteria so well because it enters the bacterial cell walls and eliminates the nasty. Also, i read that it kills free radicals!!! All of this info is based on 100% pure non-hydrogenated mature and virgin coconut oils.
    The FDA will not back up this information. If anything, they will tell you to not try it and to stick with the medicines you know. But we all know that the FDA is NOT the be-all-end-all of the medicinal world. They only reccommend the things they get their money from.

  • Elaine on 04.21.15

    Not getting the answer I need, Thanks anyway.

  • Elaine on 04.21.15

    What can it be used for beside cooking, it is a full jar and don’t want to throw it away.

  • Elaine on 04.21.15

    Dear luana company,I am writing you in regards to purchasing your 100% Organic coconut oil and after researching have found out that it is refined.I am very disappointed that this was not stated on your jar.and it is also packaged in a plastic jar which should have been a light bulb for me but I trusted your company’s integrity.
