Coconoil™ Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is from the 'pick of the palms' in Sri Lanka. The coconuts are grown in the west of the beautiful island, traditionally harvested and cold pressed with state of the art equipment.
Certified organic by the Soil Association, USDA Organic, and Control Union Certifications. Foil sealed and screw topped to retain freshness.
It’s a true functional superfood having many healing properties. Particularly packed with lauric acid which promotes a good immune system, and valuable medium chain fatty acids.
Traditional people in countries that eat a lot of coconut oil are known to be very healthy (and thin - it creates energy, revs up the metabolism and helps you burn calories). It’s known as the "The Tree of Life." in the Pacific regions.
It’s also versatile for cooking. Coconut Oil remains stable when heated, so is a healthy replacement for processed vegetable oils. Fantastic in smoothies, dips, curries and stir fries.
Ethically traded direct with the farmers, bringing much needed funds to the Sri Lankan economy (more information below).
Coconut Oil is especially recommended for vegans as a source of important saturated fats. And if you’d like to read why saturated fats ARE good for you, see the Butter or Margarine article.
NOT hydrogenated, bleached, or deodorised or refined.
Just some of the many uses for Coconut Oil!
- Use it liberally in the kitchen - nutritionally wonderful, versatile, and will take more heat than most oils
- Enjoy some daily to help the digestion, immune system, energy, metabolism and more
- Use on your face and body as a moisturiser
- Mix with bicarbonate of soda and oatmeal for a lovely facial scrub
- Rub around nose to help ease hayfever
- Massage into tired muscles
- Use as a hair conditioner (apply to dry hair, leave in, then wash)
- Use as a lip balm
- Use as a menopausal lubricant
- A little under the arms acts as a natural deodorant (we havent tried this yet!)
- Apply to cuts to speed healing
- Mix with baking soda and use as toothpaste
- Works as a make up remover
- Great for with babies with nappy rash
- Softens cuticles
The Coconoil™ company 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.
Reading a lifestyle magazine one evening he chanced upon an article about the health benefits of coconut oil and its increasing popularity in California and an idea was born.
Garry researched coconut oil production in Sri Lanka, discovering that most of the country’s exported oil was processed and sold to major food manufacturers. The virgin coconut oil had a limited market for cosmetic production in Italy and was not available in the UK.
Garry found a supplier, returned to the UK and, together with colleague Frank Andrew, has become the only importer to the UK of Sri Lanka virgin coconut oil, under the brand name Coconoil.
Garry Stiven continues to fundraise for Sri Lanka on a personal basis, raising money to help replace the school for the villages of Mawella and Hanwella, both of which were destroyed by the tsunami. Children from the villages lost their families and their homes and the creation of a new school will go some way to helping them to rebuild their lives.

If it hadn't been for you (all) then I wouldn't have known about Coconoil and saturated fats and then my intrigue into the entire field of saturated fats and how they are healthy for us. I love learning about the human body and what makes us feel great the natural way which makes me appreciate such articles you have produced as a company on the food industry and of the like.
Coconut oil is my miracle product; I use it for everything, externally and for foods. I love it! It really it something else and I am literally telling the whole world about it :)

I just love your ideology and what you stand for, that your supplements are retained in their most purest form found in nature; with no additives, no fillers, no gunk, junk or artificial "anything". This is the fastest and most efficient way the human body will "respond" to supplements in this additive free furthermore. A bit like your deliveries & customer service, fast and very responsive!
Hello again Jane,
Lovely surprise, thank you for the Waveberries! Sure. You can use whichever bits you feel relevant. Most people have no idea that they are taking supplements which are of very little use whatsoever. If I can spread your name further, and my contacts do the same, then the ripple becomes the wave: which is so relevant to your choice of name!
Hi there, order received first thing this morning. Very pleased and satisfied both with the impeccable fast delivery and ease of ordering, communication, price and product! Will use again and recommend. Kind Regards Jenny
Brilliant service and next day delivery, love it!
Having previously bought my supplements from a well known retail outlet, My daughter told me about all the additives in most "cheaper" brands , so looking this up on the internet for more information, I found your website and was amazed at the information about these additives. I look forward to continuing to use your products
