More Info

What do I Taste Like?
Coconut oil varies in taste depending on where the coconuts are grown and how it is produced. Lucy Bee Philippine oil has a richer aroma and taste than Lucy Bee from Sri Lanka, which has a lighter coconut flavour.


Where am I From?
The coconuts used for this oil are grown in the Philippines in agroforestry (an eco-friendly environment) amongst banana trees. The oil is from single estates and is not blended.


Why Fair Trade?
With your help, we’re making a difference to the lives of those who produce our Coconut Oil.
In the Philippines we’ve helped build two wells, providing clean, safe water; solar panels; and scholarships for children’s education.


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.

Packaging

Our 1 litre Coconut Oil is bottled in a recyclable glass jar, which is made from approximately 20% recycled glass.

The label is easy peel and is recyclable and biodegradable.

The lid is the highest quality available and is BPA free with a liner which is a BPA-Non intent design.

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. 

  1. What is Canola Oil?

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

  1. 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.  

  1. 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 (green lid) with a rich and natural coconut aroma, whilst our Sri Lankan Coconut Oil (with an orange lid) has a milder coconut aroma and taste – something to suit all.

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: 

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

We use recyclable glass jars, recyclable and biodegradable labels and BPA free lids.

Did you know that many food storage packaging, such as cans, contain BPA in their linings?

BPA is a chemical which is used to harden plastics and has been used for numerous years.

For this reason, not only do we use recyclable glass jars to store our coconut oil but we also use BPA free lids. The lids and the liners inside, are with a BPA-Non Intent design, which is of the highest quality available and free from BPA.

Our display trays are manufactured from recycled paper.

To encourage reuse of the jar we use easy peel labels, which are recyclable and biodegradable. 

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. https://www.lucybee.com/coconut-oil/ethical-best-buy/

  1. 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 and so avoid any contamination, coconut oil should keep up to the best before date. 

  1. 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.

  1. What are Coconut Aminos? 

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

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

Coconut oil is a dairy free replacement for butter and id 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.

I love Lucy bee coconut oil. Buying it in large quantities is cost efficient. Postage is a little expensive though.

alison h

Love this coconut oil it smells and tastes delicious. I use it for many things. Cooking all my veggies and it adds the gorgeous coconut taste to them and when Ive spooned it on, the left overs on the spoon I just rub into my hands or rub over any blemishes. Sometimes before bedtime I put on my lips eyebrows and hair and also I mix with a little tea tree oil if I ever have a little sore or cut. I wish I had discovered it years ago!

Thank you for your great review, Alison. It's great to hear how many ways you're using your coconut oil. My favourite way is as a hair mask, you can try it here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ICK2-g8zXU Georgia

HI Jacqui, Have you also tried it to remove make-up? It's amazing and even works on waterproof mascara! It contains vitamin E, which is nourishing for skin and (just as in cooking), a little goes a long way. Petrina

Carol B

I love Lucy Bee Coconut Oil, having tried several other makes. It has a pleasant taste in food and drinks - golden milk (delicious), but is used for so much more, including curing an itchy scalp condition. I massage my scalp with melted coconut oil at bedtime, and cover with a soft towelling shower cap. The next morning it washes out very easily with shampoo and the itching is gone, leaving my hair in good condition and shiny.

Thank you for your review, Carol. It's great to hear of all the ways you've found to use your coconut oil. If you're after any more inspiration and tips then we have lots on our social media pages and website - www.lucybee.com

I love this so much! I use it to cook, to nourish my nails, as a hair mask, to take off my make up - the lot! I have very very sensitive skin and it’s so good - I don’t even go red. I used a bit in the bath the other day too and it was so luxurious - made my skin feel sooo soft but not greasy which some oils do! It literally lasts forever too.
