Benefits of Orchids
Delicate, exotic and graceful - the perfect description of orchids.
These highly decorated flowers are acknowledged as a symbol of beauty, refinement and love. Often utilised in perfumes and fragrance products, the use of orchids has branched out into skin care, hair care and even colour cosmetics as the demand for natural ingredients is constantly increasing. Orchids are an ideal ingredient for personal care products; they have been used in Asia for centuries, mostly for their reparative and protective properties.
They are not only beautiful, but they are known to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, act as an anti-oxidant and key ingredient that moisturises, soothes and conditions our skin. In fact, it is one of skincare’s latest beauty secrets. Helping women of all ages restore and maintain a bright and radiant complexion, orchid extract works to achieve smooth and flawless skin tone.
Orchid leaves contain plant pigments called Anthocyanins that are part of the plantís protective mechanism in response to environmental stressors such as UV radiation, temperature extremes, drought, disease and pollution.
Anthocyanins are also part of a larger group of phytochemicals, called flavonoids, which are known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities that help increase tone while minimizing oxidative stress and delivering a soothing aesthetic.

Benefits of Coconut Oil
Our oil is derived from coconut white flesh. This pure flesh is later pressed for further separation. Moisture at this stage is approximately 90% oil and 10% water. For best results, the expulsion is left to stand so that a complete separation of oil from water occurs producing the finest quality coconut oil available today.
Our Premium Oil Method
Our oil production process is designed to generate pure coconut oil with minimal quantities of water which will ensure the complete retention of the vitamin E and antioxidants values. The pressing and grinding process of our coconuts leads to coconut milk separation by the use of centrifugal force, dividing the mixture into three distinct components(oil, water and milk). This separation process leaves the components separated into different thicknesses.
This natural process maintains and ensures that all the qualities and natural goodness of our hand selected coconuts remain the as when they flourished on Fijiís shoreline.
Throughout the long history of the Fijian people, coconuts have been used as a “source of life” sustaining the natural necessities of living from nourishment on through to protection. Naturally Fiji Coconut Oil is the most adaptable of all vegetable oils as it can be used as both a cosmetic/beauty product and a nutritious cooking oil and health supplement.
