Coconut oil consists mainly of very fluid saturated fatty acids, which are close to human sub-cutaneous fat, and is therefore more compatible with skin than most vegetable oils.

An excellent moisturising and protective oil. It helps to keep the skin soft and supple without being sticky. It is ideal for treating sensitive and damaged skin. Can be blended with other vegetable oils.

Main areas of production of coconut are Ghana, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Brazil.

Supplied in large mouth white HDPE container:

When the working liquid is water and the bain-marie is used at sea level, the maximum temperature of the inner container will not exceed 100 degrees Celsius (the boiling point of water at sea level)

As long as there is plenty of water and you watch carefully to only just melt the oil, the oil will be much lower than boiling.

HDPE can withstand temperatures of (120 °C for short periods, 110 °C continuously).
The boiling point of water is about 212 F / 100 C, high elevation cooking generally takes longer since boiling point is a function of atmospheric pressure. In Denver, Colorado, which is at an elevation of about one mile, water boils at approximately 95 C. The internal surface of the plastic will not reach 100°C if you just melt the solids to oil.
