Coconut agribusiness development opportunities with high economic value products are very large. Coconut products that have been developed in the country are virgin coconut oil (VCO). VCO has a context of products that can improve health and high-value natural cosmetic raw materials. The purpose of this study was to purify Virgin Coconut Oil using natural zeolite, utilizing ultrasonic wave equipment in the process of making Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) by comparing the results of enzymatic VCO yields (Soursop fruit enzymes) with the help of ultrasonic and without ultrasonic assistance, as well as knowing the effect ultrasonic time on the yield and VCO content produced and analyze the physical and chemical properties contained in Virgin Coconut Oil that conform to the SNI method. Making VCO was done by ultrasonic method using a temperature of 30 C and a frequency of 42 kHz with ultrasonic time variations of 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 minutes. VCO made by ultrasonic method has the highest yield compared to without ultrasonic assistance. Operating conditions that produce VCO with increasing ultrasonic time, the water content gets smaller, the density increases, the free fatty acid gets smaller, the saponification rate increases and the yield increases with the most optimum enzymatic ultrasonic time to make Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) with 4 ml Soursop extract and the best 200 ml coconut milk cream is 60 minutes which has a yield of 64.5%. For purification of VCO using Natural zeolite with a variation of 10, 20, and 30, 40, 50 and 60 grams of zeilite in 20 ml of VCO. The results showed that the enzymatic VCO making (Soursop fruit enzyme) with the help of chemical ultrasonigraphy which provided the appropriate quality for the comparison of 30 grams of natural zeolite could reduce the moisture content to 96.15% and increase the Iod number by 50.84%
