Unrefined is unfiltered and without any additives. Refined is bleached, deodorized coconut oil.
Is the coconut oil affected when it transitions from solid to liquid and vice-versa?
No is the simple answer! Coconut oil is solid below 24C and will melt above this temperature. Nutrients are not lost when it changes from a solid to a liquid and vice versa.
Why does the coconut oil turn from liquid to solid?
The temperature is what causes coconut oil to change from liquid to solid. It quickly melts when it comes into contact with hands. If the room temperature is above 24C, the oil will be liquid but If the room temperature is below 24C, it will become solid.

Is coconut oil good for acne?
