Although this can be used on your hair and in other beauty treatments, I bought it to use in cooking and baking. It is really good for using as a healthy alternative to butter or oil. It is a generous size tub and does not have to be stored in the fridge. I have notices it has liquifies compared to when I first bought it it was white and now has become translucent and liquified. I have used it in stirfies, baking muffins, and am considering using some to massage into my feet. I think it is really a good item to have in your house and will not be wasted.
