Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is 100% certifies organic. Cold pressed from fresh mature coconuts, VCO is unrefined, unbleached and non-deodorized. Virgin Coconut Oil contains lauric acids & possess numerous health benefits. In addition, Virgin Coconut Oil can be used as a natural skin lotion, topical ointment and hair conditioner.

Virgin Coconut Oil is derived from the fresh meat or kernel of a mature fruit of coconut rather than the sun-dried coconut meat known as copra.

Virgin coconut oil is the oil extracted from coconuts without the application of heat. It is rapidly gaining popularity throughout the world in comparison to ordinary coconut oil and for a good reason. VCO is an oil extracted from dried coconut meat (without pairing) which is dried at controlled temperature (below 60 oC temperatures).
