All About Our Coconut Oil
We wanted to give you guys a bit more information about our coconut oil. In case you haven't noticed, we're pretty proud of it! That's because we only use the highest quality of 100% raw, DME, virgin, organic coconut oil in our products. It truly is the freshest, fairest, and most future friendly type of coconut oil available today!
How is it the freshest?
Our coconut oil is sourced from coconuts that are wild grown and hand picked by local Salomon Island farm owners. Once picked, the coconuts are hand pressed using the Direct Micro-Expelling (DME) process. This means they are cold pressed manually, producing and collecting the coconut oil in 90 minutes or less. It really doesn't get any fresher than that!
How is it the fairest?
Our coconut oil is certified fair trade- something we can all feel good about! Our coconut oil meets three separate standards of fair trade. This means that from tree to sachet there is an opportunity to earn a reasonable income. We make sure our coconut oil is produced in consistent, respectful working conditions and that the local community benefits from our partnership.
How is it the most future friendly?
Our coconut oil is produced in both an environmentally friendly and sustainable way. Seriously, using only wild crafted coconuts is as sustainable as it gets! Each step of the DME process makes efficient and full use of the resources involved, resulting in minimal waste. No dangerous chemicals whatsoever are used to grow or manufacture the coconut oil. Finally, DME coconut oil helps to build healthy and happy futures for communities instead of exploiting them. We aim to provide our customer with the ability to improve your own health- but not at a cost of another’s well being.
Well, hopefully that provides you with a little bit more information about both our quality and our ethical standards. We assure you Coco Rinse is a product you can feel good about using.
