A true essence of the tropics, Viva Labs Coconut Oil is sourced from rich volcanic soils in the most pristine region of the Philippines where exotic palm trees flourish with coconuts of pearl-white pulp and delectable sweetness. Our top-grade coconuts are selectively chosen and hand-picked at their peak freshness and fragrance by skilled local farmers native to this sacred region. These succulent coconuts are then cold-pressed at low temperatures using our proprietary extraction method, preserving powerful nutrients and health-promoting antioxidants. Enjoy everlasting coconut bliss with just one taste of Viva Labs Organic Coconut Oil!
Coconut oil exists in two variations, refined and unrefined. In refined oils, immature and dried copra are processed at extremely high temperatures, bleached and deodorized, removing desirable nutrients, taste and aroma. In our journey to produce an unrivaled and unrefined coconut oil, we compared the quality and taste of coconuts across various regions worldwide. After endless taste tests and nutritional analyses, we discovered the best-tasting coconuts are grown in the fertile volcanic soils of Mt. Banahaw, considered to be the region’s “Holy Mountain”. Working with local farmers in this region, we hand select our coconuts once fully ripened. Within only a few hours upon harvesting, our organic coconuts are gently cold-pressed through a proprietary extraction process, retaining antioxidants, essential nutrients and a pleasant coconut aroma and flavor. The end result is an unaltered and irresistible virgin coconut oil with an exotic silky, smooth taste full of Viva goodness.
Our proprietary cold-pressed coconut oil extraction allows our oil to penetrate deep into skin tissue, clarifying, moisturizing and cleansing even the most sensitive of skin. For a daily night time regime, apply coconut oil liberally to all parts of the body in need of some coconut therapy, for a silkier, smoother and more radiant complexion. To promote healthier and stronger-looking hair, create a hair mask by melting one to three tablespoons of Viva Labs Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and apply it to roots and ends. Allow it to rest one hour before showering or, let it sit overnight for a deep conditioning treatment.
Q: Is Viva Labs Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Naturally Solid or Liquid?
A: Virgin coconut oil is naturally solid due to the molecular structure of fatty acids and has a melting point of approximately 76˚F (24˚C). Our coconut oil is pure and unrefined and as such there can be variances in texture as the oil melts and solidifies. The change in state will not alter the nutrition profile or characteristic coconut qualities in any way. Store in a cool environment or in your refrigerator during summer months if you prefer it to remain solid.
Q: What is the Shelf-Life of Viva Labs Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil?
A: Our coconut oil has a shelf-life of two years. Virgin coconut oil has a longer shelf-life than traditional oils due to naturally-occurring MCTs which help preserve nutrients, antioxidants, flavor and aroma. We recommend storing it in a cool, dry place with the lid tightly sealed, away from heat and light.
Q: Is Coconut Oil Safe for Pets?
A: Coconut oil is perfectly suitable for pets and may be taken internally or applied topically. Internally, coconut oil helps maintain normal functioning of the digestive tract and boosts immunity. Topically, coconut oil may be used on pet ears, cuts, wounds, sores and paws.
Q: Is your Coconut Oil Peanut and Tree Nut-Free?
A: Yes. Our coconut oil is produced in a peanut and tree nut-free environment and packed in a GMP-certified facility, free of all common allergens.
