UN-refined vs. refined coconut oil for Sunburned skin (topically)

I suspect the answer will be either works fine, but from a theoretical perspective:

What's better to be applied to sunburned skin: UN-refined or refined coconut oil?

I ran out of un-refined so I slathered on refined coconut oil.

Are the good things which are refined out of refined oil relevant for sunburned skin, or is any old oil ok?

Thanks for geeking out with me about coconut oil,

Mike

Thank you Kim for 'wondering this myself'. Sometimes I fear I 'major in the minors' and spend time considering really goofy things. It makes me feel better that others do that too :-) Mike

I was wondering this myself. I honestly don't think it makes any difference if the difference health-wise between the two is negligible. I guess it just depends if you want to smell like a coconut or not.

I have to see if one absorbs better than the other because anytime I have rubbed some (unrefined) on my arms or legs as a moisturizer, I find it leaves a greasy film which never really absorbs.
