Skinny Coconut Oil is the ONLY 100% RAW coconut oil in the world. Raw is a term tossed around the coconut oil industry; however, truly raw means processing under 115 degrees Fahrenheit, and Skinny is the only oil to do so.
This is due to our state-of-the-art, international patent pending Nutralock System™. Skinny is cooled and dehumidified to extract the oil, a method thought inconceivable by the industry. The result is a never heated, alkaline, world exclusive coconut oil.
The Nutralock System™ never heats our Vietnamese coconuts above room temperature, ensuring the nutrient value of the Medium-Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA). Compared to other coconut oils, Skinny has higher levels of Lauric, Capric, Caprylic and Myristic acids, the most beneficial MCFAs present.
Skinny Coconut Oil users are seeing a variety of benefits. These include; boosting metabolism leading to weight loss, supplying natural, long lasting energy, supporting thyroid function, providing hormonal balance, and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.

MCFAs, or medium-chain fatty acids, are a type of saturated fat found in coconut oil. MCFAs consist of eight to 10 carbon atoms strung together in a row. LCFAs, or long-chain fatty acids, are made up of 12 or more carbon atoms in a row and are prevalent in dairy products and meats. In the 1960s, studies done in animals shows that LCFAs were more likely to lead to fat deposits whereas MCFAs were metabolized by the liver. The animals consuming MCFAs gained significantly less weight compared to the animals consuming LCFAs. In the early 1990s, researchers began to study the effects of MCFAs on humans, examining metabolic rate change. The group consuming MCFAs had a statistically significant metabolic rate increase, leading to increased weight loss.
Currently, there is a lot of confusion and contradictory research on the impact of saturated fats on your health. In the past 50 years, the majority of health care professionals told us that saturated fats are bad. Bad for your heart, bad for your cholesterol, and contribute to obesity. But, in studies on certain Pacific Island populations, there is a practically non-existent level of cardiovascular disease even though the majority of their daily fat intake comes from coconut oil. But, how could this be?
(1) Paleo is a meat centric diet. Picturing the caveman conjures up an image of carnivores. However, the cavemen’s hunter-gatherer diet was more focused on gathering. Paleo recommends about meals of 25% meat and 75% fruits and vegetables. A common mistake of paleo is to eat too much meat.
