Product Description - Dr. Bronner's Virgin Coconut Oil Whole Kernel 14oz.
NOTE: We cannot send any Dr. Bronner's items internationally.
Our whole kernel virgin coconut oil (VCO) is cold-pressed from fresh carefully dried coconuts, giving it a delicious aroma. Versatile and healthy, VCO can be used for stir-frying, sauces, baking and body care. Extensive field research in the tropics shows that people who follow traditional diet high in coconut oil enjoy excellent cardiovascular health. Clinical research confirms that VCO improves blood cholesterol by increasing the ratio of HDL to LCL cholesterol, due in part to saturated medium chain fatty acids (MCT's) such as lauric. Both our whole and white VCO are certified organic and fair trade.
Ingredients: Expeller pressed unrefined whole kernel virgin coconut oil*.

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps are synonymous with Old-World quality and time-honored simplicity, which can be traced back to the family's German-Jewish soapmaking tradition. Born in 1908 to a Jewish family that had been making soap since 1858, Emanuel Bronner was the third generation certified as a master-soapmaker under the guild system of the time. In 1929, he brought his formulas for high-quality liquid and bar soaps to America, starting Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps in its current form in 1948.
Renowned for their quality, versatility and eco-friendliness, Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps enjoyed a small but loyal following in the early years. In the late 1960s, however, soap sales started to explode, due to the unsurpassed ecological quality combined with Dr. Bronner's urgent message to realize our transcendent unity across religious and ethnic divides. Word-of-mouth soon made Dr. Bronner's the iconic soap of that era, and in the decades that followed the soaps spread into every health food store in the U.S. and then into the mainstream as well -- winning over fans from all walks of life on the way to becoming the number-one-selling natural brand of soap in North America.
The 4th and 5th generations of the Bronner family who run the company today continue to make our unsurpassed soaps with care and integrity. 2008 marks both the 60th anniversary of Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps in America and the 150th anniversary of our family's first soapmaking activity in southern Germany. We strive to honor our heritage with progressive business practices, while devoting profits to worthwhile causes and charities worldwide.
