We had been selling coconut since last 2 years. From it, we do coconut oil from being wasted. This coconut oil is pure without MIXING with any oil... since i know outside the market, some people make short cut and they are mixing the coconut with other oil especially cooking oil.. so that it can profit more. This is the Market Technique but Not Good. The outcome of the oil will be less smell because it is not 100% Genuine anymore.
But i can guarantee that our products is 100% Genuine and it really took hours to cook and make it. In the morning, normally people sell it for BND 5 Per bottle. I look expensive to other but due to the process, i still think BND 5 is cheap because it really taking lots of time of making it.

- The Saturated Fatty Acids: Most of them are Medium Chain Triglycerides, which are supposed to assimilate well. Lauric Acid is the chief contributor, with more than forty percent of the share, followed by Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid, Myristic Acid and Palmitic.
- The Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids: Linoleic Acid.
- The Monounsaturated Fatty Acids: Oleic Acid.
- The Poly-phenols: Gallic Acid, which is phenolic acid. These poly-phenols are supposed to be responsible for the fragrance and the taste of Coconut Oil and Virgin Coconut Oil is rich in these poly-phenols.
- Certain derivatives of fatty acid like Betaines, Ethanolamide, Ethoxylates, Fatty Esters, Fatty Polysorbates, Monoglycerides and Polyol Esters.
- Fatty Chlorides, Fatty Alcohol Sulphate and Fatty Alcohol Ether Sulphate, all of which are derivatives of Fatty Alcohols.
- Vitamin-E and Vitamin K and minerals such as Iron.
