Our Organic Coconut Select CO2 Extract is highly aromatic and possesses a delicious coconut aroma that we find to be even more aromatic that of our Virgin Coconut Oil. As with all our organic ingredients, it is certified organic by CCOF.
Organic Coconut Select CO2 Extract can be used to impart your finest natural products with a beautiful, coconut aroma while simultaneously enriching your product with its nutritive and skin soothing benefits.
To produce our Organic Coconut Select CO2 Extract, a multi-step process is used. First, organic coconuts are cold pressed at low temperature. Then, the cold pressed oil undergoes CO2 supercritical extraction that results in a beautifully aromatic, nutritive extract.
Although our Organic Coconut Select CO2 Extract is best classified as a CO2 Select, it is rich in saturated fatty acids and possesses a thicker consistency similar to CO2 Totals that are abundant in fatty acids.
At cooler room temperatures, our Organic Coconut Select CO2 Extract possesses a semi-solid consistency and is milky white in color. At warmer temperatures, it is a clear liquid. It melts easily with gentle warming.
