Volcanic Earth DME Virgin Organic Coconut Oil is super fresh and fair trade at its best. DME stands for Direct Micro Expelling.
Unlike Copra Oil, the DME process extracts Virgin Coconut Oil from fresh, mature coconuts within 1-3 hours of cracking the nuts. This approach produces beautiful Virgin Coconut Oil full of antioxidants and retaining the fresh coconut aroma.
Apart from producing a beautiful product, the DME process is also important as it helps end the cycle of poverty for many disadvantaged Ni Vanuatu villagers who would otherwise be paid poorly for copra or have little opportunity to earn income.
