Optima 100% Organic Raw Virgin Coconut Oil is cold processed and non-GM. It is produced from raw fresh coconut flesh and not dried copra.
The cold processing method ensures that the vital nutrients and delicate omega fats are retained intact, unlike many refined non-virgin coconut oils.
Raw Virgin Coconut Oil is a highly nutritious food, a delicious culinary ingredient and one of the finest cooking oils you can use. Unlike most vegetable oils, it is resistant to the breakdown of fatty acid chains even at higher cooking temperatures.
Raw virgin Coconut Oil can be used all over the body as a lusciously nourishing and moisturising beauty treatment.
Raw Virgin Coconut Oil solidifies below 25 degrees centigrade, but above this temperature it will turn to liquid. This is a natural characteristic due to its fatty acid profile and does not affect the quality or integrity of the product. It is safe and healthy to use in either state.
