The health and beauty benefits of virgin organic coconut oil are world renowned. While it’s easily found everywhere, sourcing a high-quality coconut oil requires research and being thorough with the growing and production process.
We have found the perfect coconut grove and source this directly from our growers in Sri Lanka. Evidently the red yellow pod zolic Sri Lankan soil is one of the most fertile soils naturally and abundant in minerals, and naturally free from fertilisers and weedicides. Sri Lanka is the perfect location, being an island buffered by the sea, makes the agroclimatic conditions ideal for the coconut tree to thrive and deliver a unique flavour. Our growers only grow the natural tall natives and do not cross pollinate to create hybrid trees for better yields, so the coconuts are as nature would have intended leaving their nutritional qualities as close to nature and 100% pure. The grove is sustainably cultivated, and the soil is fertilised using natural animal and food compost.
Many oils even though labelled virgin is often very low in healthy nutrients, usually as the result of being made from coconuts that aren’t fresh. Low quality coconut oil may also contain heavy metals such as arsenic, copper, iron and lead. The great thing about our Sri Lankan coconut oil is made from very freshly harvested coconuts, cultivated in organic soil naturally. And, most importantly no children or monkeys are used for coconut picking which does happen to lower the cost of production in some parts of the world.
For beauty and skin uses, it is a natural anti-aging moisturiser, excellent hair conditioner and an effective anti-dandruff remedy. Used as hair oil it also encourages healthy hair growth, regenerates thinning hair and promotes a healthy scalp. It has also been known to be helpful for skin conditions such as eczema and is a wonderful natural emollient for dry skin. It deeply nourishes the skin, is easily absorbed and can also be used as massage oil for the body. Used internally organic virgin coconut oil is considered by nutritionists to be among the healthiest of all dietary oils.
Coconut Oil Pressed from Fresh
Our oils are pressed from this season’s fresh harvest of seeds, nuts and kernels, to retain quality potency and efficacy. Fushi's Organic Coconut Oil is also one of the most potent and pure types of coconut oil, using approx. 2.5 coconuts to make your 230g jar of oil.
