Vita Coco to debut new coconut oil

BY Ryan Chavis

NEW YORK — Vita Coco, a coconut water brand, will launch new Vita Coco Coconut Oil. The coconut oil is USDA organic-certified, 100% raw and cold-pressed, according to the brand.

The use of coconut oil has escalated recently, as consumers have applied it as a beauty and wellness treatment; they've also used it as an additive in the kitchen. One of the latest trends found consumers using coconut oil for "oil pulling," a practice which, according to some reports, allows them to reap health benefits.

Vita Coco Coconut Oil will be available via Amazon later in August and will be sold in 18-oz. jars. It also will be sold in 14-oz. glass jars in the cooking oil and beauty section of select specialty retailers and department stores.

Customers who search or browse the Amazon product selection will find the "Get It Today" filter on the left-hand navigation panel, just below the “Amazon Prime” filter. They can select “Get It Today” and see only those items eligible for Same-Day Delivery. A similar “Get It by Tomorrow” filter will allow customers to discover millions of additional items that can be delivered the next day.
 
Amazon will offer same-day delivery for things like everyday household needs, health and beauty, baby items, toys, movies and games, electronics, office supplies, sporting goods, apparel and home accessories.
