The fresh coconut meat is grated and then expeller pressed to produce the coconut milk. This milk is centrifuged to separate the milk into coconut solids, water, and oil. This results in a rich and creamy coconut oil that retains the smell of fresh coconut milk.
This cold process extraction takes place within hours of opening the coconuts and thus conserves the nutritive components of coconuts such as natural squalene and vitamin E.
Naturally antibacterial and antifungal, virgin, unrefined coconut oil is an excellent skin moisturizer, can penetrate hair better than other oils and it smells delicious.
