Pokonobe's Specialty Natural Oils


Coconut Oil, also known as Copra Oil, is a semisolid, highly saturated vegetable oil, obtained from the dried flesh of coconuts. The coconut palm tree, originally native to India, today is cultivated in all tropical areas of the world and includes numerous species.

Used as a staple in the cuisine of the Far East, it is a popular ingredient in a variety of recipes due to its heat-resistant properties, and its ability to be easily digested and metabolized.

Coconut oil is prized by the rest of the world for its pharmaceutical and cosmetic properties. Registered in traditional pharmacopoeias and primarily known as a source of glycerides, it is used as an excipient in a wide range of medicines. It is also widely used as an emollient to make soap, shampoo, moisturizers, and suntan lotions.
