Skin saviour in more ways than one

With fans ranging from Alisha Dixon, who says ‘she’s addicted’ to it, to Tinie Tempah, Coconoil has been a skin saviour for thousands of people throughout the UK. A powerful moisturiser, Coconoil is bursting with essential fatty acids, important building blocks for healthy skin, making it one of nature’s most effective tools to gain a glowing complexion and beat back dry skin.

But it’s not just our skin that Coconoil will be helping in 2015…

2015 marks ten years since the birth of Coconoil in the aftermath of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami. The brand was created as a way to help Sri Lankans get their livelihoods back on track after the disaster and uses coconuts from local farmers and individuals on the island. A decade on and Coconoil, who now help employ over 200 people in Sri Lanka, have recently set up a new project with 200 smallholders from five villages in Ghana and hope throughout 2015 they can replicate some of the success they have seen in Sri Lanka and help to create new jobs and income streams for those involved.

To follow in the footsteps of Tinie and Alisha visit, where you can choose between Sri Lankan and Ghanaian  virgin coconut oils, with prices starting at just £6.99. Both are organic and are produced by cold pressing, literally squeezing the oil out of the coconut, rather than through the use of high heat which can be detrimental to some of its benefits.
