Coconut Oil For Skin
Health Benefits of Coconut Oil for the Skin, Body, Face & Hair
Coconut is one of natures most miraculous fruits, and has an abundance of benefits and uses. For centuries, the coconut has been one of the main staples to the people of Fiji, the Pacific Islands, and throughout the Tropics. Whether absorb or digested Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, the unrefined fat removed from the coconut, is the key byproduct that Organic Fiji uses to unlock the Coconuts full potential.
What are some benefits to using Coconut Oil for the skin?
Now it is no surprise that Coconut Oil is great for the skin. Fijians and Pacific Islanders have always had beautiful, smooth, healthy, and age defying skin even while being exposed to the relentless sun and their harsh salty sea air. Their secret is in their native island product, Coconut Oil! It has been used as a natural skincare treatment for centuries. Coconut oil is nature's most abundant source of Medium-Chain Triglycerides. When applied to your skin, your natural good bacteria convert these Medium-Chain Triglycerides into Antimicrobial Fatty Acids. Antimicrobial Fatty Acids prevent viral, fungal, and bacterial infections, including yeast! Antimicrobial Fatty Acids act like natures natural bodyguards for your skin. This is key! These protective qualities make Coconut oil an excellent fat to use in body soaps, and is why Cold Pressed Coconut Oil is the principal ingredient in Organic Fiji's Coconut Oil Soap Cleanser for Face and Body! A perfect choice for sensitive, normal and, of course, dry skin!
Why is Coconut oil such a superior moisturizer?
It all comes down to the small molecular structure of coconut oil. Coconut Oil's undersized structure promotes easy absorption through the skins pores and follicles. Coconut Oil's deep moisturizing properties rapidly hydrate, condition, and shield the skin from moisture loss, especially compared with the over processed low-grade fats used in most leading skincare products. This is why Organic Fiji's Cold Pressed Coconut Oil is such a superior moisturizer, and is a great treatment to relieve dry, rough, and wrinkled skin. It is also an optimal natural treatment of skin conditions like Eczema and Psoriasis! Organic Fiji's Coconut Oil Lotions for Face and Body are made only with Certified Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, and are formulated to promote healthier hydrated skin! But better moisturizing is not the only reason to use Coconut Oil as your primary skincare treatment!
Why does Coconut Oil make you look and feel younger?
Not only is Coconut oil vitamin enriched in vitamins A, B, C, and E, but it also nourishes your skin. Coconut oil is a natural anti-oxidant that helps the skin repair itself. Coconut Oil's protective anti-oxidant qualities protect the skin from free radicals and other environmental aging factors. Free radicals break down the connective tissues in your skin, causing your skin to harden and lose its natural elasticity and strength. All the signs seen in aged skin! Conventional skin products are not made with anti-oxidant loaded fats like coconut oil. Instead, they often use highly refined vegetable oils, which may have had all their good anti-oxidants removed from over processing. These highly refined vegetable oils are actually prone to free-radical generation! If you apply a product that uses highly refined vegetable oil instead of anti-oxidant loaded oil like Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, you may actually be causing you skin to age faster! This is why you should always be careful about what skincare products, lotions and lip balms you use. Organic Fiji takes full advantage of the anti-aging abilities of Coconut oil by using only Certified Organic Virgin Coconut Oil formulated in all Organic Fiji Products including their Sugar Polish, which exfoliates and enriches your skin, and their Coconut Oil Lip Balms.
So remember when looking to care for your skin, look for Coconut Oil, and look for Organic Fiji!
Certified Organic Only
Organic Fiji's Certified Organic Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil Process
The secret to Organic Fiji’s body nourishing product line is not just their use of only Pure USDA Organic Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil, but also how the oil is processed. At Organic Fiji, they use only Pure USDA Organic Cold Pressed Oil in all of their products!
What is Cold Pressed Oil, and what is so special about Organic Fiji’s USDA Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil?
Organic Fiji is dedicated on providing natural antioxidant rich skin care products. The most beneficial sources of antioxidant supplements are found in naturally concentrated extracts. Botanical oils processed in an inert oxygen deprived environment, which have NOT been exposed to excessive heat or chemicals. Organic Fiji's Cold Pressed Process prevents oxidation, a counter to antioxidants. Organic Fiji employs a “Chemical-Free Cold Pressed Coconut Oil Process” that utilizes a precise set of low temperatures and pressures. Organic Fiji's process produces a Coconut Oil extract in its purest form; pure antioxidant rich oils that offer superior nourishing and health benefits.
What is Oxidation?
When the Coconut Oil is exposed to increased temperatures, chemical reactions within the oil also speed up. These chemical reactions double every 18 degrees the temperature is increased. As the oil’s temperature rises, the faster its antioxidant qualities are destroyed by, oxygen, light, and air from the “pressing” process. The most important reason to Cold Press Coconut Oil is the internal chemical changes that take place in the oil’s molecules at hotter temperatures. The Coconut oil will literally change its form to an unnatural derivative. The unsaturated fatty acids can convert into unnatural trans-fat configurations. They also can oxidize, crosslink, dimerize, or polymerize. This changes the shape and properties of the Coconut Oil’s fatty acid molecules, robbing the extracts of all their nutritional and supplementation value! It can even make the oils toxic!
So why don’t all of Organic Fiji’s competitors use Cold Pressed Coconut Oil instead of the “high heat processed” types?
The answer is simple - its cheaper, in all senses of the word. When the “high heat” processed method is employed it yields greater quantities, extra coconut oil, and it is processed at a much faster pace. So almost all of Organic Fiji’s competitors sacrifice the Coconut Oil’s natural and nourishing qualities to save a few extra dollars. At Organic Fiji, they will never sacrifice the quality of their products by using inferior processed Coconut Oil. Organic Fiji only uses 100% Pure Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil in all of their products!
Organic Fiji's Organic Coconut Oil Treatment for Stretch Marks
Searching for a Product to Help Prevent or Heal Stretch Marks?
Organic Coconut Oil is the perfect choice when you want to moisturize dry skin, massage for relaxation or even repair flaws . . . including stretch marks! Even though pregnancy might be the most typical time for stretch marks to appear, it is not the only incidence. Other situations that manifest this breakdown of the skin are weight gain, growth spurts during puberty and body building. This is why understanding the benefit of Organic Coconut oil is valuable to either gender or any age group. Recent studies have shown that even normal every day stress and lifestyle choices can predispose your skin to these unwanted scars.
Prevention and Repair
It is reassuring to learn that there is a simple solution; frequent applications of Organic Fiji's Coconut Body Oils and Coconut Oil Lotions will keep the skin supple and flexible retaining its natural elasticity. Applying Organic Coconut Oil to the skin throughout pregnancy has been proven to help prevent stretch mark damage and scaring. Not only can it prevent stretch marks in many cases, but it can also lessen the appearance of existing ones. Vitamin E has long been a remedy for skin imperfections, and Organic Fijis Coconut Body Oils and Coconut Oil Lotions deliver it at its very best.
The Cause is Twofold
When your skin is stretching faster than your body can produce collagen, you are likely to form stretch marks. If you add a genetic tendency and any of the stress triggers that occur during pregnancy, puberty or weight gain, you have combination of factors working against you. When the skin is giving out under this pressure it is also forming hormones know as Glucocorticoids. The stress hormone Cortisol is probably the most common, and our bodies produce an abundance of it as a response to any stress or anxiety. Put all this together and you can see that stretch marks have both internal and external forces working in their favor.
An Ideal Solution
Fortunately, Organic Fiji's Organic Coconut oil offers a perfect solution for all causes behind the stretch marks or the stress. On the outside, there is nothing better than using a Cold Pressed Coconut Oil to massage the affected area. Not only will it restore the skins elasticity, but it also provides important antioxidants to fight free-radical damage. For best results apply one of Organic Fiji's Body Oils 2-3 times daily to keep skin elasticity up to prevent stretch mark development.
What does Dr. Oz Say about the Benefits of Coconut Oil for the Skin?
Is Coconut Oil Good for you? Doctor Oz sure thinks so!
Perhaps you missed Doctor Oz’s special he did about the Benefit of Coconut Oil. The title of this show was Coconut Oil Super Powers and he also did another segment on his show Beauty Secrets from Around the World: Coconut Oil to Honey! He went into detail of all the Health Benefits of Coconut oil for the Skin, (how it is one of the Best Natural Oils for Skin) and for whole body nutrition!
What does Dr. Oz say about the Benefit of Coconut Oil for the Skin?
Coconut Oil “makes him excited!” In Dr. Oz’s show Coconut Oil Super Powers, he highlights the Coconut Oil’s three main Super Powers. The first Super Power of the Coconut is weight loss! Dr. Oz says, “Coconut Oil has a bad “rap” because it’s saturated… but the scientific research on this is changing all we know about Coconut Oil.” What the research shows is Coconut Oil is not your typical type of saturated fatty acid or large chain fatty acid. Coconut oil is a medium chain fatty acid so it behaves very differently in your body. The medium chain fatty acids are dissolved easily in your blood. Because of Coconut Oil’s ability to dissolve in the blood stream the liver quickly and easily metabolizes it. This promotes weight loss over other types of cooking fats! It is also a low calorie alternative like Olive Oil both with only 119 calories and 13 grams of fat per tablespoon!
What is the 2nd Super Power of Coconut Oil?
The second Super Power of Coconut oil is it treats Skin Conditions. Dr. Oz explains it can be a used as a wonderful skin treatment for various skin ailments to “help dry irritated skin… if you have Eczema or Psoriasis (coconut oil) can help with it dramatically.” It is also great to use Coconut Oil to fight fungal infections because Coconut Oil is loaded in Lauric Acid a natural treatment for a wide variety of fungi. Coconut Oil is such a great treatment for such a wide variety of skin conditions that Dr. Oz even recommends, “If you got different kinds of ailments of skin you’re not sure about, one of the first things I will often do, if I think its not an allergy, soothe it with Coconut Oil!”
The 3rd Super power of Coconut Oil is?
Dr. Oz says Coconut Oil is a great treatment for ulcers. He explains not all ulcers are caused by stress: “We know often ulcers are caused by bacteria (such as) H. Pylori…you can use Lauric Acid (again what coconut oil is loaded in) research has shown… to kill… the H. Pylori.” It is great to see a physician like Dr. Oz encouraging all the health benefits of Coconut Oil to promote a healthier lifestyle to so many people!

About Organic Fiji
The Very Beginning
The tale of Organic Fiji starts on a beautiful group of islands far, far away. The Fijian Islands are a group of tropical islands located in the South Pacific about 1100 miles Northwest of New Zealand. Bob Rogers, the founder of Organic Fiji, discovered the beauty of these islands in 2003 on a family vacation. While he was there he noticed how all the islanders had beautiful, healthy, glowing skin. Their secret was coconut oil. Certified Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil. He learned how they used it in their daily routines, beauty regimes, and in their diet too. He witnessed first hand how this ingredient can benefit people in so many different ways.
Bob went on to find out that there was a coconut plantation in Fiji. The coconuts grown at this plantation were cold pressed to produce certified organic virgin coconut oil. This method of extraction means that all the goodness of the coconut is kept in tact. The plantation also burned the coconut husks afterwards to provide a clean, sustainable and environmentally friendly source of energy for the plantation and the surrounding communities. This plantation not only produced a valuable ingredient that held so many benefits, but was also socially responsible for its working actions.
Bob felt that the secret of the amazing coconut, its seemingly endless list of benefits in all aspects of life and the working methods of this coconut plantation were all too much of a treasure to keep to himself! He wanted to share it with the world! With this enthusiasm and passion Organic Fiji was born!
Organic Fiji was created with the vision that there could be skin care products on the market that were not only pure and organic, using nature's tropical treasure as their key ingredient, but they could also be products that did not compromise performance. Organic Fiji products were to nourish and care for the skin like no other products on the market. And so it began... The pure warmth and beauty of the Fijian people that Bob had experienced when he was there was delivered from their fingertips, through Organic Fijis products, and to the customer as they enjoyed the amazing benefits the products could offer.
There is no moisturizer on planet Earth more quenching than Certified Organic Coconut Oil. In its purest form, coconut oil is natures way of treating dry, irritated skin. Rich in Vitamins and antioxidants, coconut oil is not only wondrous for the skin, but can also be used as an intensive treatment for damaged hair, a smoothing hair serum, a makeup remover, a night cream, a baby massage oil, a scar treatment and many other things.

Organic Fiji is always keeping up to date with new organic information, and remains dedicated to keeping the products as pure and organic as possible. USDA and Oregon Tilth continue to certify many of Organic Fiji's products as Organic.
Organic Fiji products are now made in the USA. After production quality decreased in Fiji, and the question of their carbon footprint when shipping the products back and forth was questioned, it was decided that Organic Fiji would use the same ingredients and age old methods to create their products, but somewhere a little closer to home. Organic Fiji felt this was the best environmental choice, which would then directly advantage their customers. Organic Fiji continues to use the coconuts from the pacific islands, supporting the people of these island communities. Organic Fiji takes pride in the quality of their products, and will always remain devoted to producing consistently high quality results.
As a company, Organic Fiji will always operate with the same enveloping warmth that was witnessed in Fiji when this tale began.
