    FAQs

    1. Is Coconut Oil Good for Your Face?

    Our unrefined Coconut Oil is ideal for your natural beauty regime. It contains vitamin E, which is hydrating and nourishing for skin and ensures the proper functioning of sebum glands and can help clear blockages.

    Use a small, pea-sized amount as a moisturiser. Rub it between your fingertips until it melts than gently massage onto your face.

    2. What is Canola Oil?

    Canola oil is a vegetable oil, derived from rapeseed oil.

    3. What is Lauric Acid?

    Lauric acid is a type of saturated fatty acid and is found in coconut oil, coconut milk, palm kernel oil and breast milk.

    Coconut oil is predominantly made up of lauric acid (approximately 48%) and as such enjoys the benefits associated with lauric acid.

    4. Is Lucy Bee coconut oil good?

    Yes, it is! Our Coconut Oil is an unrefined oil which is cold press extracted from the flesh of fresh, organic coconuts. It is also raw and certified Fair Trade. This natural oil is a great replacement for processed oils in all cooking from roasting, frying, baking to using as a dairy free spread. 

    Our Coconut Oil is from the Philippines with a rich and natural coconut aroma.

    It is vegan and vegetarian approved, contains no cholesterol and is free from dairy and gluten.

    When we started Lucy Bee we had a number of key objectives to supply the best quality coconut oil possible at the most competitive price. We wanted to make a quality product available to everyone not just a few. We were also insistent that any coconut oil we supplied would fulfil the following:

    It would be:

    Organic

    We totally buy into the need to protect our individual health and the health of the planet by following organic ways of production and avoiding pesticides and intensive farming practices.

    Raw

    Being organic is only one part of the quality of a product like coconut oil. It is important for us that the product is raw. That when being produced the

    utmost care is taken to ensure that only low temperatures are used so that all the goodness and nutrition is maintained.

    Fair Trade

    For too long the wealthy West has exploited the producers in Third World countries. By buying Fair Trade we want to properly reward the small local farmers and provide funds for local community projects. Our first shipment helped drill a fresh water well for the local deprived community. Before the well, they had to walk 2 miles to get clean drinking water. Current projects are installing solar panels and solar light bulbs into the one room wooden homes. Future projects involve proper housing and scholarships for kids. Lucy Bee pays a premium for its organic coconuts that goes to the local farmers and local communities for social projects. We then give 0.75% of our sales to the Fair Trade body. Our Fair Trade certification also guarantees that monkeys are NOT used to harvest the coconuts. We could buy the exact same oil for less and not be Fair Trade.

    Packed In Environmentally Sound Packaging 

    For this 5litre pail, we can only use plastic. This is of the highest food grade plastic which is free from phthalates, BPA, BPS, silicone and nanoparticles. The label is recyclable and biodegradable. The pail is recyclable, though we recommend reusing it for storage or as a small bin.

    Our display trays are manufactured from recycled paper.

    Bottling

    Lucy Bee is bottled in a BRC Grade A bottling plant and we are totally able to guarantee the integrity of the product.

    Testing

    Every import of raw Lucy Bee Coconut Oil is subjected to a number of tests to confirm its purity, its oil content and that it is totally lactose and gluten free.

    We also conduct shelf life testing and check for bacterial and funguses.

    Ethical Best Buy

    Leading ethical and environmental magazine, Ethical Consumer (est. 1989), recently voted Lucy Bee Coconut Oil as the ‘Best Buy’, for coconut oil in the UK market. We came out as the winner for the most ethical coconut oil. You can see more information here.

    5. How do I Store Coconut Oil?

    Your jar of Lucy Bee Coconut Oil can be stored in the cupboard, without the need for refrigeration. Assuming good food hygiene ie. always use a clean and dry utensil to remove the oil, coconut oil should keep easily up to the best before date.

    6. Is Coconut Oil Good for Your Beard?

    As with all hair, coconut oil can be used to massage into beards to help nourish the hair follicles.

    7. What are Coconut Aminos?

    Coconut aminos is a sauce made from coconut sap and is a gluten free replacement for soy sauce.

    8. What are the dimensions of the 5 litre pail?

    The 5 litre tub is 200mm x 200mm x 210mm.

    9. Coconut Oil for Baking (Baking with Coconut Oil)

    Coconut oil is a dairy free replacement for butter and is great to use in baking. We’ve found that you only need to use 3/4s of the amount stated for butter eg. if a recipe calls for 100g butter, only use 75 Lucy Bee Coconut Oil.

    In baking, it’s easier to use if you melt the required amount of coconut oil before mixing in with other ingredients.

    Delicious, creamy taste - always! .

    Hi Wanda, Thanks for this. Our 5 litre Coconut Oil is great to have when you use Coconut Oil a lot. I use it in both cooking and beauty (it's a brilliant make-up remover and after sun soother!). Petrina

    Steven C

    Would have been 5 stars if a plastic free version of the 5ltr was available to buy. Not used this one yet but the precious oil from Lucy bee was great and went though it so fast as we used it everywhere, hence the reason for 5ltr purchase.

    Hi Steven, Thank you for your review. Unfortunately there is no other way for us to package this quantity of oil - we had a big demand from customers wanting to buy in bulk like this and this plastic pail is our only option. The pail is of the highest food grade plastic which is free from phthalates, BPA, BPS, silicone and nanoparticles and it is recyclable, though we recommend reusing it for storage or as a small bin :) It's great to hear you love our Coconut Oil and use it in many different ways. Enjoy! Hannah
