Coconut oil is derived from coconut flesh. Coconut oil has reached cult status and we love it. It's super nourishing for hair and skin, without being heavy or overly greasy. Our coconut oil comes from a womens cooperative in Samoa. They produce delicious organic, virgin coconut oil from small producers all around Samoa. Purchasing their oil ensures we pay a fair price for their product and that the money is reinvested back into their communities and environment.
