Made from fresh organically grown coconuts (not dried copra). The entire production process for the oil, from palm to plate, takes just a few hours. Fresh coconuts are collected from organically certified farmers and the coconut flesh is removed using graters. The flesh is dried by turning it on large wood-fired ovens for three hours, before it’s pressed hydraulically to extract the oil. Impurities are removed and buckets of oil are filtered to create Heilala Coconut Oil. This cold pressed method results in a pure and natural, non-hydrogenated, organic, unrefined and highly stable coconut oil.
Heilala Virgin Coconut Oil is unbleached and so some natural discoloration is normal. It is non-deodorized so it has a lovely coconut aroma!
Heilala Pure Virgin Coconut Oil is organically grown and processed in partnership with the Tonga National Youth Congress (TNYC) and Oxfam NZ.
Heilala Virgin Coconut oil includes several compounds that are good for your health, including caprylic acid, capric acid, and lauric acid. Virgin coconut oil contains medium-chain fatty acids which are much easier on the body than the long chain fatty acids found in many other cooking oils.
Use as a dairy-free alternative to butter, for baking, roasting and stir-fries. Smoothies, Paleo coffee and raw treats.

Being from India, I've grown up on coconut oil and have used it for cooking, in my hair, on my face and body and even added to my coffee (talk about filling!). Outside of India, I've never found a coconut oil I love as much as this Heilala brand. And, have you ever had bad coconut oil? You'd know if you did, trust me. Not with Heilala though...this is the REAL DEAL, made from fresh coconuts (not the dried stuff) and you can tell as soon as you open the jar - its fresh and mild in smell and texture! I love cooking with this coconut oil more than anything...it really does have a subtle flavor and is great for high heat cooking! And ladies, try shaving and wiping makeup off with this coconut oil - your skin will feel so luxurious after.
I am really impressed with this coconut oil! I have been using coconut oil as a face wash and moisturizer for about 3 years along with dietary purposes, and I had thought that organic cold pressed coconut oil was pretty much all the same. This one is the absolute best one I have ever used (and I have tried a lot), the texture of it is amazing! I have let it warm to the liquid point and refrigerated it multiple times already and it is always so smooth. Other coconut oils that I do this with tend to get clumpy and have an inconsistent texture. Once I had a bit of this oil in my hands I instantly knew I had found a whole new perspective of what coconut oil could be like.
