Organic Fiji was born after its founder first fell in love with the simplicity of island life. While traveling in Fiji, he noticed how the locals all had beautiful, healthy, glowing skin. Their secret was coconut oil. Not the artificial or bleached coconut oil he’d seen before, but certified organic, cold pressed, extra virgin coconut oil. He learned from the locals how they used it in all aspects of their daily routines – in beauty, personal care, family health, cooking + more. Read more about their story here.
Organic Fiji’s coconut oil comes from a socially responsible private reserve plantation that’s 130 years old + is tucked away in the volcanic mountains – overlooking the waves of the South Pacific. Their coconuts are grown on rich, high altitude soil, offering pure nutrients from perfect weather conditions + are hand-harvested. The coconut oil is then extracted using a cold-pressed method, locking in it’s molecular structure to produce certified organic coconut oil. Many other companies use a heat extraction method because it’s a lot cheaper + produces more oil – but it destroys many of it’s unique benefits in the process.
Their plantation also provides energy for the property + the surrounding community by burning the discarded coconut husks. It operates under fair trade rules, selling coconut oil at market price, + offering fair wages to all its employees. In addition, each working family also receives an acre of land to grow their own food on. How cool is that?!
Their coconut oil is totally raw, unrefined + extra virgin, giving you all the first-pressed goodness without any bleaching or altering. Organic Fiji has been certified USDA organic (for over 11 years now, making them highly experienced in the clean living movement) by one of the most highly respected certifying agents – Oregon Tilth. This certifying agency looks at all products + ingredients with a highly regimented food standard, which means that personal care items don’t get any special treatment or conditions for passing. In addition, their nutritional oil is certified Kosher by Star-K, + is Bestowed Certified as a clean + allergy friendly.
Organic Fiji’s products are vegan, cruelty-free, gluten free, biodegradable, wilderness, marine, + reef safe. This ensures that whenever you’re on an adventure in nature’s playground, the products you put on your skin will not negatively affect the ecology + wildlife around you. The brand stands firmly against animal testing, with the exception of letting their pups taste-test the quality of the nutritional coconut oil (which they highly recommend for pet nutrition + grooming!)
