Coconut oil is extracted by cold pressing the coconut. Full and fair trade coconut oil breaks the chains of the copra industry and creates empowerment opportunities for farmers. Clean, natural extra virgin coconut oil is produced by the farmers themselves within one hour of opening the nut! Coconut oil is uniquely rich in lauric fatty acid > 48% which is a prime ingredient in mother's milk and helps build up the body's immune system. It is the best oil for a premium soap as it lathers well, cleans and nourishes the skin.
