Coconut Oil - Extra Virgin Raw and Organic (500g, 1kg)

 

In Stock

Description

Our coconut oil is the first (cold) pressing of virgin, organically grown coconuts.

Our coconut oil is the first (cold) pressing of virgin, organically grown coconuts. Some other coconut oils use the second, third, and even fourth pressings for their product. No external heat sources are used in the extraction process, there is no refining, and no other chemicals are used. The land and manufacturing plant is certified at source by SKAL in the Philippines. This coconut oil is also made by producers that do not use monkeys to pick the coconuts.


It is 100% fat, which breaks down as:


93% saturated

7% unsaturated, of which

5% monounsaturated

2% polyunsaturated


Saturated fats are an important food group, and on a vegan diet the only sources of saturated fat are coconut and cacao. Coconut is the only plant source of lauric acid, which is an essential fatty acid found in breastmilk.


But it's not only good internally, it also has many uses externally! Put some in the bath with some essential oils for a lovely bath oil. Use as a moisturing skin cream, or for the Ayurvedic practice of oil pulling. Pets love it, especially dogs.

Note: Coconut butter is a different product, it includes some meat. This product is just the oil. If you want coconut butter, try Nutiva Coconut Manna or Raw Ecstasy Coconut Butter.
