(NaturalHealth365) In my search for the best products for my readers I recently learned about Skinny Coconut Oil. Their coconut oil is unlike any other coconut oil on the market today. To understand why, let’s go over how coconut oil is typically produced.

The three main ways coconut oil is produced are:

• Centrifuge – the coconut oil meat (called “copra”) is spun to release the oil
• Refined – this is usually “RBD” which stands for refined, bleached, and deodorized”
• Expeller pressed – the copra is mechanically pressed using a hydraulic press

Understanding the process of coconut oil production

Each process varies in the amount of machines and chemicals that are used to create the oil. The more aggressive the machine, the more heat is created and the more chemicals are used, the less natural or pure the coconut oil becomes.

The term, “cold pressed,” applies to either centrifuge or expeller pressed oil. When coconut oil is pressed without the use of chemicals, it’s called “virgin coconut oil”, but because it’s mechanically pressed, it still gets heated, which reduces quality.

Most “cold” pressed coconut oil is actually heated up to 120 degrees. While kept under “air conditioned” conditions to reduce heat, the friction created from the centrifuged process still raises the temperature of the coconut oil above what is considered “raw” (104°F).

Skinny Coconut Oil does something special in its production process

Skinny Coconut Oil takes the best features of virgin coconut oil, but hand-presses the coconut oil to create a new form of coconut oil called, “cold processed”. This process keeps the oil cool to ensure all of its vitamins and minerals remain intact.

To cold process coconut oil, Skinny & Co. (makers of Skinny Coconut Oil) uses cold air to dehumidify and extract the virgin coconut oil at room temperature. The oil is then filtered to remove impurities down to 5 microns leaving it 100% pure, but also completely raw.

Skinny & Co. produces a raw coconut oil because it is cold pressed at room temperatures below 100°F.  Most other “virgin coconut oils” are expeller-pressed or centrifuge-processed at the temperatures above 120°F. Not all virgin coconut oil is raw, but Skinny Coconut Oil is.

It’s easy to get bogged down in questions like, “which oil is best?” or “should I get cold processed or virgin?”  While these processes and features are important, it’s also important to know where the coconut oil is coming from and who is making it.

Skinny coconut oil represents the best in business practices and integrity

Skinny & Co. partners with local farmers in the Ben Tre region of Vietnam where owners, Matt Geddie and his colleagues, manufacture the raw coconut oil before shipping it to their headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana.  This helps the people of Vietnam and the United States.

Matt was inspired to start Skinny & Co. while brokering raw goods out of Southeast Asia.  While comparing products in America versus the quality of products he saw – it wasn’t even close to the way it started out.  In other words, the processing of most raw goods destroyed the quality.

Along with his brother, Luke, Matt took his experience with brokering raw materials to create the highest quality coconut oil product on the market.  By doing that, Skinny & Co. started changing the way people feel by making them healthier.

When I asked Matt why he created the company – he said, “Because our coconut oil products are helping consumers to be able to make a healthier choice each day and being healthier makes people happier, which allows them to feel better.”
