The Olive Bar is the sole importer and exclusive U.S. distributor of the Santa Maria 100% Virgin Coconut Oil from Amazing Foods Corp in the Philippines. We have done our homework on this one and have even flown to the Philippines to meet with our supplier and to see the process for ourselves. We feel we have chosen the best coconut oil in the world.
Santa Maria VCO is pure, unrefined, unbleached, non-deodorized and non-hydrogenated. It has no preservatives, no cholesterol, no chemicals added and no artificial flavors or colors.
Santa Maria Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is Cold-Processed, A-No-Heat method (ANH), no-cooking, at any point in its manufacture to retain all of its micro-nutrients, short and medium fatty acids, vitamins A, C and tocopherol (vitamin E). It takes 28 to 30 days to produce Santa Maria Virgin Coconut Oil because heat is not used in any part of the production process.
The ANH method gives Santa Maria Virgin Coconut Oil advantages over mass-produced and highly processed coconut oils that use heat to accelerate the production process.
- absorbs faster by the skin and body
- longer shelf life
- mild coconut aroma
- viscous or thick but not greasy
- retain all of its micro-nutrients, short and medium fatty acids, vitamins A, C, and Tocopherol (vitamin E) thus getting all the benefits to help to heal the skin problems faster.
