"We are really excited about our partnership with Carla Hall. Coconut oil is an essential ingredient she had already embraced in her kitchen so she knows how to work with it and adapt it in a variety of applications. Her enthusiasm for the product, culinary know-how and bubbly personality made her the perfect choice for LouAna," said Chris Hannigan, Vice President of Retail Marketing at Ventura Foods.
"I use coconut oil for practically everything! I always have two jars. One, of course, for the kitchen and the second for the bathroom. I use it to take my makeup off and as an ingredient in my homemade deodorant. I even oil pull – which is where you swish about a tablespoon around in your mouth for 12 minutes. It whitens my teeth and it's great for my oral health!" said Carla Hall.
