Virgin Oil de Coco Creme Coconut Oil

I’m guessing that unless you’ve lived under a rock for the last several years, you’ve heard at least some news about health-boosting coconut oil.  While it certainly offers numerous health benefits, it is important to know that not all brands are created equally. As with so many foods and supplements, the ingredients and the processing methods used can affect the quality and efficacy of the product.

Quality First International’s Virgin Oil de Coco Creme is personally my favourite coconut oil, and believe me, I’ve tried many.

What’s so great about this brand of coconut oil? Aside from tasting great, here are a few things that I’ve learned from the company’s literature [my comments added]:

  • Extra-virgin & biologically pure [not all brands are]
  • Superior quality re: taste, texture, aroma & colour [amazing delicate texture, taste, smell]
  • Processed by cold centrifuge [some brands use heat which can damage the oil]
  • Non-GMO [not genetically modified – a growing concern to our health]
  • Non-Generic – unlike generic virgin oils, has a unique balance of capric, caprylic and lauric acids for optimum health effects [capric/caprylic acids fight candida/bad bacteria overgrowth; lauric acid boosts immune function]
  • No chemicals, fermentation, boiling, roasting or unsanitary ‘village’ drying
  • FAIRLY FAIR TRADE – direct to farmers, no third party, no child labor [all important to me]
  • Raw from fresh organic coconut milk [not all brands are]
  • Highly stable with indefinite shelf life of 3+ years (the only one tested)
  • Well balanced medium chain fatty acids [MCTs]
  • Higher antioxidant, anti-septic and anti-fungal properties than other brands
  • Excellent for cooking, even at higher temperatures
  • Excellent for internal, external and in formulation usages [the only thing I use on my skin!]
  • Produced with commitment to environmental and rural development

Coconut oil doesn’t need to be refrigerated and it has a 3+ year shelf life so you can take advantage of cost savings by buying large containers. I am thrilled to be able to offer Quality First’s superior Virgin Oil de Coco-Crème coconut oil to you in two amazing economical sizes (note prices are at time of writing this post and are subject to change):
