Ethical Sourcing and Sustainable Processing
Our product is ethically sourced and we are committed to investing in the local community which has meant our product carries a Fair Trade accreditation.
The coconuts we use, come from an agroforestry environment, rather than plantations. This is much better for the local environment.
Agroforestry is an integrated approach of using the interactive benefits from combining trees and shrubs with crops and /or livestock. It combines agricultural and forestry technologies to create more diverse, productive, and sustainable land-use systems.
The coconut oil is prepared from good matured fresh whole coconuts. The outer shell is removed and the white fibre is ground into fine granules and then dried. The granules are then cold pressed to remove the oil. Our coconut oil then goes through a series of filters and micro filters to product the clear extra virgin coconut oil that we bottle.
It’s highly nutritious, being rich in medium chain fatty acids and the incredible Lauric acid. Virgin Coconut oil is free from any trans fat or hydrogenated fats and contains no cholesterol.
Much research has been written about the benefits of Coconut Oil and its components. Medium chain fatty acids or Medium Chain Triglycerides as they are known, are easily digested by the body and aid metabolism, being turned into energy rather than being stored as fats
Medium chain fatty acids are said to have important anti microbial and anti bacterial benefits.
There are many articles which have been published suggesting coconut oil to be beneficial against Alzheimer’s, other ageing diseases of the brain and also in the fight against Diabetes.
Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil is also loaded with Lauric acid. This ingredient is turned into monolaurin in the body, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
The oil is also rich in anti-oxidants and vitamin E, with many people using it as a conditioner for hair, as a moisturiser, or as a natural massage oil.
