Virgin Coconut Oil
Our Raw Virgin coconut oil is made from fresh coconuts which are processed as soon as they have been harvested. Once the oil is extracted, there is no further processing, Itofan’s coconut oil is simply raw and is packed full of healthy nutrients!
We use the traditional method of extraction that uses a giant pestle and mortar system to crush the roasted coconut meat. In this way, the oil extracted results in a pure form of coconut oil, it is labour intensive and collects less oil than other methods. But by using this traditional method, the coconut oil is kept raw with no further processing needed and no stabilizing or preservative agent. So that using this traditional extraction method, the oil retains all its therapeutic benefits. it melts on skin contact, ideal for all hair and skin types including dry, itchy, sensitive skins and baby.
Note: This raw virgin coconut oil is liquid in hot weather climate and solidifies under 25°C in cold weather temperatures. Because of the extraction method, the oil can sometimes be cloudy (creamy) in colour and may have a smoky roasted coconut type of smell.
