Coconut Oil: Facts & Only Facts
The natives of coastal and tropical regions have been using and have known and seen first-hand the beneficial properties of coconut oil for thousands of years.
Coconut oil is the first plant oil ever used by mankind. It is derived from mature fruits of coconut trees. It is thick and white semi-solid; therefore, you need to warm it before using for hair and on the skin. Just rub it in the palm of your hands before applying. It is also consumed as a cooking oil and in raw treats and bakes. Coconut Oil is very versatile.

Coconut Oil for Hair Growth: Hello Glossy Hair
Coconut oil completely penetrates the hair and as a result it gives the hair more volume which makes it look denser, healthier and fuller.
Hair is easily damaged by overheating it, friction, over washing it, harsh chemicals, colouring it regularly. You can prevent damage by using coconut oil once or twice a week.
Conditions from Within
Coconut oil retains moisture, so necessary for well-moisturised and strong hair. This keeps the hair looking shiny and healthy.
In addition, coconut oil has antibacterial properties (it contains something called lauric acid) and nutrients, responsible for ideal hair and scalp protection from bacteria/protozoan/viral infections.

This is reflected in our support of Fair Trade, donations to charities, products which are certified Organic, Vegan and Cruelty Free, our choice of environmentally friendly packaging, as well as reducing our carbon footprint.
Palm Oil Free
We strive to show the negative effects that using palm oil is having on the world by blurring the boundaries between products people want and making sure they are created to not only be effective and affordable, but by also putting the environment first. It's not always easy but it IS possible to create effective products which are palm oil free.
The beauty of working with the FairTSA is that those farmers and workers involved in producing the products directly benefit from the contributions, which help to improve lives through such things as school meals and scholarships, clean and safe drinking water, and lending programmes.
Each year we work closely with a chosen charity and our donations are made in various ways. We make a payment for every box of our Bath Salts that we sell, and we offset our carbon footprint by donating the equivalent amount to the charity. We also donate food products and soap bars to charities including in the UK, Malawi and the Philippines.
None of this would be possible without the amazing support of our customers.
Supporting the Vulnerable During COVID-19
With the support of our customers, we were able to donate 30,000 palm oil free soap bars to the vulnerable including NHS staff, the emergency services, the homeless, the elderly, care homes and food banks. We provided the soap base and our manufacturer, Soapworks, created the bars for free.
