We package our oil blend in a convenient no mess eco-friendly single serving size that can be slipped into a bag, backpack, pocket or purse. 2GO is small enough to pass the Federal Transportation Security Administration for carry on baggage. Perfect for travelers, athletics, or anyone looking to boost health and energy.
We blend 100% organic virgin coconut oil with MCT (medium chain triglycerides) oils, which does two important things. First, it keeps the coconut oil more liquid. The melting point of coconut oil is 76 degrees, so if you are in an environment that is cooler than 76 then your coconut oil will be solid, and more difficult to use. Second, the MCT oils give an extra burst of energy as well as help maintain a healthy weight.
