Botanical Name: Cocos nucifera
Extraction Method: Cold Pressed
Quality: Our coconut oil is refined, bleached and deordorised (RBD) using physical, rather than chemical processes. While some brands prefer 'complete' oils, removing or reducing the odour and/or colour does give a higher level of aesthetic flexibility when formulating and also tends to further improve the stability of the oil.
Description: Coconut oil switches between solid and liquid at room temperature (21-25C). The oil is used to lubricate the skin and condition the hair. Coconut is a preferred oil for high quality cold-process soapers as it is a 'hard' oil on account of its chemistry, being majority saturated fats which are also very stable.
Color: White to Off White
Aromatic Description: This oil has been deodorised but it may still have a very slight coconut scent.
Common Uses: Coconut is the preferred oil for both the soap making and cosmetic manufacturing industries.
Consistency: Solid at room temperatures. Gentle heating is required.
Absorption: Coconut creates an oily, protective barrier on the skin.
Shelf life: Coconut oil is slow to go rancid; users can expect a minimum shelf life of 6 Months, but much longer with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended.
Cautions: Direct application to the face with Coconut should be avoided because of possible allergic reactions.
Note: Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, however gentle heating will allow it to liquefy.
Certification: Australian Certified Organic
