Crude Coconut Oil

Crude Coconut Oil (CNO) is oil extracted from the meat of matured coconuts harvested from the coconut palm (cocos nucifera).

The meat is extracted from the shell of the coconut and dried using fire, sunlight, or kiln driers to produce copra. Copra is mechanically expressed and/or dissolved with solvents (hexane) to extract CNO.

CNO is used as raw materials for soaps, cosmetics, bio-diesel and oleochemicals
