chose this brand because it's Dr Bronner's
July 22, 2014
I'd used Spectrum Organic's refined coconut oil before this one, as it was so conveniently located on Walmart's shelves for $5. I'd gotten used to Spectrum's near-undetectable taste; it will take me a couple weeks to get used to the flavor presence - light but still noticeable - in this jar. I do look forward to trying this oil in the oil-cleansing method and as a pre-shampoo hair treatment. I took off one star because I was unhappy that it arrived in completely liquid form - meaning the oil must have been in constant contact with the underside of the lid, which may have leached into the oil. I contacted Dr Bronner's about the material of the lid's underside and was told it's aluminum-coated pulp board. Hopefully that means no leaching concerns.
