    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.

    FAQs

    Coconut Oil 

    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 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. 

    Bottling

    Lucy Bee is bottled in a BRC Grade A bottling plant in the UK 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 like it but for a few dishes it is a bit overpowering. So have to use olive oil instead.

      Lovely. Can use for skin, teeth and cooking. Good quality.

      "Mrs L

      I am never tempted to use anything else, even if it's on offer because I know the quality & just love everything about the brand. It's about supporting those who rightly deserve it for all the hard work they put in, caring about who grows the product & how it is done. Thanks Lucy Bee.

      "G C

      I love this coconut oil and use for everything - cooking, make up remover, oil pulling, dry skin, lip balm, hand cream to name a few.

      "Trian P

      The product is fine, it is the secod time I bought it and I will buy it again. My only suggestion is to be more careful with the wrapping thing , whoever does it, especially on international shippings. It's so sad receiving the item with smashed bottle.. But again I must say, I love this product.

      "customer"

      I love Lucy Bee products. Coconut oil is my preferred cooking oil and I have this on repeat subscription as it makes it a lot more economical. Would definitely recommend.

      "Janet C

      Getting used to taking this product two good teaspoons a day with a dribble of jam. Everyone in S.Africa with memory problems are on Coconut Oil.

      "Super R

      Certainly the best of all. I have tried coconut oil from various brands, must say this is tastier and fragrant. Food tastes better when cooked with Lucy bee. Iam using this for Baking too INSTEAD of BUTTER.I use it for my hair and skin when it's about to run out. There are so many Organic brands in the market doing coconut oil but none of them match Lucy bee.

      "customer"

      One of my favourite ingredient in kitchen. It's helps me to be healthy and feel great every day. So tasty.
