Most of us do not realise that bath and body coconut oil soaps are made from copra oil and not Virgin Coconut Oil. Even those soaps that aren't are contaminated with chemicals and solvents used to mass produce these soaps. Copra oil has little if any real skin care benefits and the same goes for mass-produced soaps.
Copra is busted up coconut shells with the flesh still inside. Sadly, these are usually thrown into old sugar bags and the like and left to accumulate mildew and mold until such time as the they are put threw a press or otherwise treated. This is usually weeks later and by then the copra oil that is produced has no aroma and has lost virtually all of the goodness that true Virgin Coconut Oil is known for.
Not so with Volcanic Earth. Our handmade soaps are made from high grade Virgin Coconut Oil cold pressed within 1 - 3 hours of cracking open the coconut (referrred to as the DME or Direct Micro Expelling method). As a result, each batch of oil is virgin, rich in antioxidants and chemical-free. Our VolcanicEarth premium Virgin Coconut Oil comes only from fresh, mature coconuts and these factors contribute to the reason why our Virgin Coconut Oil is some of the best coconut oil on the planet.
In our research laboratory every ingredient is analysed with a Gas Chromatography mass spectrometry for purity and provided with a certificate of analysis
