i purchased this at whole foods as well but felt the need to comment since i depend on comments myself for purchases. this is a great product and smells divine. i use this mainly for eating and cooking purposes but will be trying it for lotion and deoderant. good choice for a coconut oil 🙂

It leaves my hair incredibly soft n shines for days after I apply it!! It has a soft scent that isn’t overbearing n it won’t leave ur hair feeling heavy or weighed down!! Would definitely recommend this product in the use of your routine hair regimen!!!

I was very excited when I ordered Dr. Bonner’s Fresh-pressed Virgin Coconut Oil. What I did not know, however, is that this product is contained in a glass jar. The package arrived promptly via USPS, but in an awful state. The small cardboard box was SOAKED in oil, so it got all over my mailbox and other pieces of mail, and dripped all over everything. My only gripe is about the awful packaging. All it had for protection was a flimsy sheet of bubble wrap! I have posted a photo of the jar that I pulled out of the box. I filed a return claim and was contacted by NetRush, but I forgot all about it after a few days. I’m sure I could have gotten a refund but I missed the deadline. That was my fault, not theirs! Therefore, I will post a 3 star review. Great customer service, terrible packaging!
I bought this particular coconut oil at Whole Foods, but I wanted to write a review on here for anyone who is interested in using coconut oil. This brand is very good. It was a bit more solid in the store, due to the fact that it’s cooler temperature than my apartment. When it heats up, it melt and is just a clear oil. When I opened the jar, the smell was amazing! I love the smell of coconut. I did a deep conditioning treatment with this for my hair which is a bit dry and damaged, and also very fine. I put a pretty good amount of this and rubbed it through the length of my hair, and also massaged my scalp with it. I left it in for about 2 hours and then washed it out with shampoo and then conditioned as normal. Even as I was washing it out, it felt amazingly soft. I also tried another version of the deep conditioning treatment – I left it in over night and washed and conditioned as normal the next morning. This really packed a punch – my hair was SO soft and silky and VERY shiny, I couldn’t believe it was my hair. I couldn’t stop touching it all day lol. This is more amazing than any hair product out there. And it’s completely natural and inexpensive. And I forgot to mention your hair will smell absolutely yummy while you have it in 🙂
My wife purchased this coconut oil to use as a skin moisturizer. She was on a quest for a more natural / organic lotion and was recommended this by a friend. We began using the coconut oil on our children after they bathed and noticed that it left their skin softer and for much longer than the lotions we were using previously (aquaphor, ceraVe, or sebamed). In terms of moisturizing effect, it is on par with these other products as well. Also, our kids also seem to like the coconut oil and put up less fuss after bathing. It’s something different and they really like the light coconut scent. It also seems to work well on mild eczema (and does it without the burning sensation). My wife also uses the coconut oil on her face as a lotion. I have used it to moisturize hands and feet.
In terms of application, the coconut oil is a solid at room temperature, but melts quite easily. It gets soft and runny if you place the bottle in the shower as you bathe or upon contact with the skin, making it easy to apply on the body. One thing to keep in mind though is the oil is very greasy and can leave marks on clothing (although the stains seem to wash out). I have found that despite the greasiness, the oils absorb into skin relatively quickly (maybe 15-20 minutes), and when it soaks in, it is really soaked in (meaning you can wash your hands and it does not get greasy again). Still, we tend to use this lotion before bed most often.
I wanted to buy a small separate jar of coconut oil for skin and hair care so I decided to try this one. I love it. It’s unlike any other coconut oil I tried better. It’s creamier and melts instantly unlike other coconut oils. I’ve been using it on my face and body. I honestly notice a difference in my skin. It’s looks clearer and feels more moisturized. I hope they never stop making and or selling it on Amazon. I will definitely buy again.
I love this product so much!! I have tried many many brands of coconut oil and i stick to using it in my cooking and baking, not so much as moisturizer for hair and skin (but i think i will start to do this). The thing that’s amazing about Dr. Bronner’s is the COCONUT FLAVOUR that you can actually smell and taste omg its delicious!! many other brands have no flavour whatsoever and no scent of coconut at all. For me, someone who LOVES anything coconutty, its a big step up that this one has a beautiful flavour and smell. Its also nice that when you cook and bake with it, the flavour comes out in a subtle way, not too overpowering but complimentary. I use this for everything from eggs in the morning to baking cookies or pancakes. DELICIOUS, most definetly will stick to Dr. Bronner’s from now on.

Saw in a magazine that virgin coconut oil worked to help blown-dry, or colored hair — WELL – IT WORKS!!! One tablespoon heated and combed through your hair, once-a-week does wonders!! So, I ordered it, used it for three weeks and my hair looks shiny and healthy. Just heat it, comb it through and wash as usual — great hair tip and great product. The magazine even mentioned Amazon and this product – so I am grateful for this tip for healthier hair, plus. . .it smells great, too!
This is a great product. I have really dry skin and I use it after I get out of the shower and my skin is softer than ever. I have also used on my hair to help with the dryness.
