It melts at around 76 degrees fahrenheit. Im sure the tempature in the store is right around 76-78 degress fahrenheit.

Oops. Yes, I meant if its Virgin. If its not Extra Virgin and is Refined then yes it will be a liquid.

Their freeze dried coconut flakes are amazing also. They taste like powdered sugar! If you ever order again, you need to try those,

Yes, it's a good deal which is why I buy it. There are other coconut oils available for that price but they are not virgin. Now, keep in mind that the NOW brand coconut oil I use IS virgin, but not extra virgin. I'm not worried about it though. Coconut oil takes heat well, without "oxidizing" unlike olive oil, which must be cold pressed, extra virgin in order to retain quality.
Some die hard healthly folks on here may think that extra virgin coconut oil is the only way to go... but I love the NOW brand. The taste and quality are good as far as I am concerned.

it says some people may actually not be suffering from p. acnes irritating the skin but from a fungal overgrowth. if your face doesn't seem to respond to antibiotics then this might be you. believe whatever you want but here are my results so far (nothing astounding but much much better than before i started)>>>
i have used coconut oil from garden of life all over my face for almost two weeks and my face seems drier in the morning than ever before. i dont' moisturize in the mornings, just wash with warm water and a washcloth (night too).
the blackheads on my nose have dried up and can easily be scrubbed/lightly pushed off but it leaves the skin all peely.
redness has diminished a great deal.
skin feels bouncy.
and no huge pimples so far. ::crossing fingers:: just some leftover whitheads that have never gone away no matter what i do.
