Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Review

I have been using coconut oil for many different uses in our home for many years and my favorite brand by far has been by Tropical Traditions. The Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is a superior quality product that uses only the freshest, organic coconuts from the Philippines. Each organic coconut harvested for the Gold Label brand has been hand selected and uses traditional methods to extract the coconut milk and ultimately producing the finest coconut oil available in my opinion. You can learn more about exactly how the coconut oil is processed by visiting the Tropical Traditions website….it was fascinating for me to read all about it.

Tropical Traditions takes great pride in supporting small family businesses that produce the Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil in small batches. I appreciate that it is only labeled with the Gold Label after being tested to ensure that it has a high level of antioxidants and that they do not use chemical or high heat temperatures in order to extract the unrefined coconut oil. I love that this product has a wonderful rich taste and pleasant texture and when used in baking my husband (who dislikes coconut) doesn’t even realize that he is eating a baked treat made with coconut oil as an ingredient.

Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Review

We use coconut oil in so many ways including a few of our favorites such as cooking, baking, to add moisture to dry skin and as a luxurious treatment for my hair. My six year old daughter has severe eczema and I have been using coconut oil to moisturize her skin while it is still moist after every bath and it works great for us. If I happen to forget, I can be sure that she will remind me that she would like me to apply the coconut oil all over her legs, feet and elbows.
