One of the Healthiest
Ways to Cook! Coconut oil is highly heat resistant and will
only oxidise at temperatures ABOVE 198o Celsius due to
its high concentration of saturated fats!. A little goes a
long way - with a water content of less than 1% - you need use only
1/3 of the amount that you would use butter, margarine or lard.
That means a 500ml tub (460g) of coconoil is equivalent to 1.5 Litres of
Butter so its economical too.

Virgin Coconut for beauty - Skin & Hair
Coconut Oil is high in natural antioxidants and protects skin
from damaging free-radicals. Used daily, it helps to keep skin
firm and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It is anti-ageing can help heal and repair the
skin and make the skin smoother and more evenly textured by
removing the outer layer of dead skin cells. Unlike many
moisturisers which just plump up the skin with water and leave
it dry once the water has soaked in or evaporated, coconut is
easily absorbed and will really nourish the skin on the inside
too. It also
offers protection from wind & sun damage. When
choosing your sunscreen, we recommend finding as natural product
as possible - many chemicals in commercial sunscreens are
carcinogenic and that effect is enhanced when exposing them to
heat from the sun. Zinc Oxides is the safest
alternative and naturally reflect the sun's rays. Once a
base tan has been established just use coconut oil for a deeper
and longer lasting tan. Just try to avoid mid-day sun on a
beach or boat where you can't feel you are burning, even the
highest SPF cannot protect you from all sunburn so don't overdo
it, cover up if necessary!
To use a skin cream — it’s great all over the body — just scoop out with
a spoon and rub all over, it will soon start to liquefy in your
hand (mind you dont lose too many drips on the carpet!)
Pure moisturising & softening properties with no nasty chemicals!
If you have really dry skin just use as often during the day
until your skin absorbs the oil and reaches a natural balance.
Known to help psoriasis and other dry skin conditions (coconut
will even affect your skins suppleness by eating it, which we
cannot recommend enough!)
Use as a natural lip balm, many face
& lip products on the market have chemicals which are free
radicals that can cause damage - coconut oil is not only
natural but can help reverse the damage and repair the skin
caused by using perfumes & chemicals.
Use as a pre-wash hair
conditioner for shiny, soft healthy locks and condition
the scalp. If your hair needs a deep conditioning tonic -
apply to dry hair, wrap your hair in towel, sleep on it (or
leave on for a couple of hours), then
wash it off in the morning! Also as effective as medicated
shampoos against dandruff.
Use as a conditioning hair serum -
use on dry hair after washing and smooth through the ends.
Start with a really tiny amount to avoid looking greasy and build
up as necessary. Coconut contains proteins that will help
nourish your hair.

added to other creams and lotions for extra moisturising and

How to use Coconoil
its name, Coconoil usually appears in its solid state in the UK,
liquefying at between 18° and 24° C. It does not need
refrigeration and can be stored in the kitchen cupboard or
bathroom cabinet — wherever it’s most convenient
If you want to use as a
liquid you can either:
- Store it somewhere warm — for
example in the airing cupboard or near the boiler
- Spoon some of the solid oil
into a dish and sit it in some hot water to melt. We don’t
recommend microwaving Coconoil (or any food!) as it degrades the health

Ethical Trading & Job Creation
The company importing & marketing
Coconoil in the UK is the brainchild of founder Garry Stiven, who
visited Sri Lanka in the immediate aftermath of the 2004 tsunami to
help with emergency relief work. When Garry, a former field
director for Save the Children who has spent many years living
abroad, saw the extent of the devastation, he knew it would take
many years for the worst-hit areas to recover.
Garry used his experience from
previous events, such as Hurricane Fifi and the Guatemalan
earthquake to help with a number of immediate relief projects. But
he wanted to find a way to help the Sri Lanka people in the longer
term and he turned his attention to finding an export market for the
country to bring in new revenue and boost the economy.
