Our products are based on one of nature's oldest forms of natural food, tonic and body moisturizers that has been used throughout the Pacific for centuries - Pure BANABAN Virgin Coconut Oil that is high in lauric acid and truly is a FOOD FOR THE SKIN.
When BANABAN Virgin Coconut Oil is applied to the skin - it has many benefits. The oil is very similar to the body's own sebum and the lauric acid converts to monolurin when applied topically to the skin
Lauric acid was first discovered as the main antiviral and antibacterial substance in human breast milk. It is a medium chain, saturated fatty acid that is also found in coconut products. Monolaurin is the glycerol ester of lauric acid and is more biologically active than lauric acid.
BANABAN Virgin Coconut Oil is extracted from fresh organically grown Fiji coconuts with the least amount of processing so that the natural vitamin E, antioxidants and fresh coconut "essence" are retained. Direct from our tropical plantations in Fiji.
This cold press Virgin Coconut Oil is is not copra derived. Coconut oil has been used by Pacific Islanders for centuries as a major part of their diet and for everyday usage. It has long been considered as 'The Tree of Life!' High in valuable Lauric Acid.
