Coconut Oil Goes Rancid On My Skin, Any Ideas Why?

Hey all, I've been peating for about a year now and I've noticed that when I apply coconut oil to my skin, it goes rancid and stinky within probably less than an hour.

Doesn't matter what brand I use, so my assumption is that it must be some bacteria or maybe even the acidity of my skin, I'm not sure how to remedy it.

I miss having the nice smell of coconut oil on my skin, olive oil doesn't go rancid on me but it's not quite as nice as I remember coconut oil being.

Any ideas?

Are you sure its good oil? Getting the purified stuff?

Any brand I try including the purified stuff goes rancid, this happens to my uncle as well... have you ever heard of this happening? lol

Anglo, and yeah, the smell is pretty bad after about an hour or two, I have to wash it off to avoid family/friends commenting.

No other health problems? What if it is killing something that is causing the bad smell on your skin? How's your liver? Skin is a common detox organ...

Try MCT oil, if there is still some smell then it is from other sources as saturated oil won't react spontaneously.

I hadn't thought of that, I suppose its possible. I have not taken bloods in more than a year but I assume my liver's fine. I will occasionally get very mild dandruff but eating liver/oysters makes it disappear.

I have noticed small patches of dry/darker skin popping up in my upper thighs/groin, which is why I've assumed I have some bacterial or fungal problem.

Do you know how I could test if that is in fact what's happening?

I'll give it a go. Like I said, olive oil gives me no issues, and since my post I've taken quite a liking to it.
