Cold-pressed coconut oil is the most commonly known oil on the market. It is made from coconut flakes which are dried with heat. And it has particles of the soluble constituents extracted from the dried coconut meat. The heat process depletes the caprilyc and lauric acids and reduces the antioxidant capacity of the oil. It has a stronger coconut smell and flavor.
With the expeller-press process, dried coconut flakes are pressed to output a liquid that is 90% oil and 10% water. Heat is then used to extract the remaining water from the liquid. Similar to the cold-press method, the heat depletes the beneficial nutrients, enzymes and anti-oxidants in the final product. The oil is medium texture.
The optimal extraction method is one which uses no heat, a proprietary process which we use at Cocovit. Cocovit Coconut Oil is made from freshly pressed coconut milk, chilled and separated by a proprietary tool. We do not use any heat or chemicals before, during or after the pressing process. Our coconuts are pressed within 24 hours of being picked assuring freshness. Cocovit Coconut Oil is considered 100% raw and retains all of its living nutrients, enzymes, anti-oxidants and lauric acid to better nourish your hair and skin and overall better for your health. Cocovit Coconut Oil is known for its anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial proprieties and has excellent natural anti-oxidant protection, which prevents free radical damage and stalls premature aging. Cocovít Coconut Oil has an extremely light coconut smell and flavor due to no heat being applied.

To get a bit more scientific: parabens are esters (a compound formed from acid and alcohol) of p-hydroxybenzoic acid. The FDA claims the most common parabens are methylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben.
Cocovit products are all paraben free.
Cocovit products do not use the commonly known coconut oil. which is unrefined & cold-pressed. Our oil is extracted with a proprietary tool and technique which uses no heat, solvents, bleaches or deodorizers - all to prevent contamination, alteration and deterioration of the oil. Our process also allows the oil to remain raw and retain its freshness, and keep 100% of the beneficial nutrients and enzymes intact.
When heat is used in the extraction process, a high percentage of nutrients and enzymes are eliminated. Our exclusive extraction method is essential for the quality of the coconut oil and ensures the retention of the oil's restorative properties. And our process allows us to keep a higher percentage of lauric acid in the oil which is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, making this a product like no other for both hair and skin. Coconuts are the only plant-based source of lauric acid - it's also found in human breast milk.
Our oil is 100% pure, versatile coconut oil is suitable for all ages, skin & hair types. In addition to deeply nourishing, repairing and strengthening your skin and hair, Cocovit Coconut Oil has countless other uses and benefits.
