Our name

"The Tree of Life" is the name given to the coconut palm by the indigenous folks in the tropical regions because it provides them everything they need for survival - food, clothing, shelter,fuel and medicine. Because this is the name that truly describes the tree that provides the virgin coconut oil we are selling, we decided to use this name to carry our products.

The products

For thousands of years, virgin coconut oil has been valued in these regions not only as a vital source for food, health and general well being but also as a natural source to nourish the skin and hair, and as a soothing oil for body massage. It is no accident that the people living in areas where coconut oil is used both in the diet and for body care have beautiful skin and hair, and possess a radiant glow all over.
Virgin Coconut oil is a naturally processed, unrefined and chemically free and additive free product derived from fresh coconut meat which has not been exposed to high heat and has not undergone any chemical processing after extraction.

Your benefits

It is a rich plant source of naturally occurring Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) or Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) of which 50% is lauric acid, the most important essential fatty acid in building and maintaining the body’s immune system. The only other abundant source in nature is mother´s milk. Medium chain fatty acids are easily digested by the body, absorbed directly into the bloodstream and transported to the liver where they are used quickly and primarily as a source of energy.

How to produce

The Tree of Life Virgin Coconut Oil is produced from freshly-picked coconuts that are grown by small farmers from the neighboring villages of my hometown, Ormoc City. The coconut milk, which is extracted within 24 hours of harvest to maintain high quality, undergoes a natural separation process and several filtrations to separate the oil from water and solid components. This gentle and environmentally friendly method of production produces The Tree of Life Virgin Coconut Oil which is 100% pure, cold pressed, unbleached, unrefined, non-deodorized and not heated at all during the whole process, therefore, all the natural nutrients, flavor and scent of fresh coconut are retained. The result is a product which has very excellent qualities, has a light texture and a mild flavor, and has the purest form of coconut oil. It can be stored for several years without becoming rancid due to its natural antioxidant properties and very low moisture content. It is solid at room temperature and fluid at 25°C. It is most suitable for culinary purposes and for use in cosmetic and health care products.
