"First off, I LOVE THE COCONUT OIL! The consistency is “cool” for lack of a better term, as I just scoop a bit out and once it hits my hands in that squishy solid matter it melts. I use that every night as I go to bed on my hands. The reason is that I never found an oil that actually absorbs. That to me is amazing. Usually they sit on the skin, this ABSORBS. Brilliant."

"On the Volcanic Earth Coconut Oil & Organic Skin Care Factory Tour you would have been attracted to the intoxicating aroma of beautiful, clear coconut oil as Donald and his team showed you just how real virgin coconut oil should be made. It’s fascinating to learn about the process and see it taking place right before your very eyes – the oi lis so fresh and clear like water. You would have been fascinated to learn how Volcanic Earth helped Donald and the other young men set up as young independent business entrepreneurs. Oh and let’s not forget the wonderful smells coming from the skin care factory. The manufacturing staff make it all - everything from all of the multi-coloured coconut soaps to different types of moisturizers, body scrubs, cleansers, toners, massage creams and much more. All chemical –free and everybody is just so lovely and welcoming."
Kate Teasey, Shared Services Manager, Australia
This does make our coconut oil more expensive than those companies selling coconut oil made by the copra method, which produces more oil but chemicals must be used in the purification process.
OTHER FACTS ABOUT OUR DME PRODUCED COCONUT OIL
Why is organic coconut oil generally the best type of oil for you to use on your skin?
The answer is free radicals.
Most commercial creams and lotions are predominantly water. Their moisture is quickly absorbed into dry, wrinkled skin. As the water enters the skin, it expands the tissues, like filling a balloon with water, so that wrinkles fade away and the skin feels smoother. But this is only temporary. As soon as the water evaporates or is carried away by the blood stream, the dry, wrinkled skin returns.
Want to know how to look younger? As we age, connective tissue fibres are continually subjected to free-radical attack, which breaks them down. As a result, connective tissues become hardened and lose both elasticity and strength. The skin loses its ability to hold itself together and begins to sag and become wrinkled. Once young, soft and smooth the skin turns dry and leathery. Once a free-radical reaction is started it can cause a chain reaction that produces more free radicals, which ultimately damages thousands of molecules. The only way our body has to fight them is with antioxidants. When a free radical comes into contact with an antioxidant, the chain reaction is stopped. For this reason, it is good to have plenty of antioxidants in our cells and tissues to protect us.
Virgin Coconut Oil is especially useful in fighting free radicals, as it is unrefined and hasn't been stripped of any of its natural components through the refining process. Conventional body care products that are made with refined vegetable oils which have all the antioxidants stripped from them are highly prone to free-radical generation both in and outside the body. This is also the reason why you should be careful about the type of oils you use on your skin, and in your lotions, creams and lip balms. If you use a lotion, or cream with a refined oil in it you are in fact causing your skin to age faster. The lotion, though it may bring temporary improvement will actually accelerate the aging of the skin and even promote skin cancer through the free radicals that are readily formed from the refined vegetable oil.
Virgin Coconut Oil can help keep the skin from developing liver spots, and other blemishes caused by aging and over exposure to sunlight. The oil is absorbed into the skin and into the cell structure of the connective tissues, limiting the damage excessive sun exposure can cause. While it is not a natural sunblock, Coconut Oil IS the perfect, natural treatment for relieving sunburn and is itself, a natural exfoliant.
Avoid using 100% vegetable oil all the time when cooking as these often contain transfat which can carry free radicals into the cell membranes of the brain. Where possible, replace these vegetable oils with high-grade virgin coconut oil for optimum health. Most of the cells of the body are replaced over a 3 to 6 month period and so if you make the change to Virgin Coconut Oil you may notice a smoother, healthier texture to your skin. For any of you who suffer from fungal and yeast infections, you may experience a marked improvement.
Is sedimentation a natural phenomenon in pure coconut oil?
Yes, sedimentation is a natural phenomenon in pure Coconut Oil since the manufacturing process involves only filtering, minute invisible suspended matter (which is also protein) settles to the bottom of the bottle when kept idle over a long period of time. This sediment is absolutely pure, is safe to consume and forms part of natural pure Coconut Oil.
Coconut Oil Skin Care will not only bring temporary relief to the skin, but it will aid in healing and repairing. Experience the lasting coconut anti-aging benefits. Coconut Oil skin elasticity helps bring back a youthful appearance. The oil will aid in removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, making the skin smoother. The skin will become more evenly textured with a healthy "shine". As a natural moisturizer, coconut oil also penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin to strengthen the underlying tissues. Unrefined coconut oil is not only excellent for the skin, but for hair as well.
Virgin Coconut Oil is also known to help protect against degenerative disease, heart disease, arthritis, cancer and diabetes.
