Dignity Coconuts Raw Coconut Oil is a 100% Organic, unrefined and raw coconut oil that can be used in food, on the skin and lips. I love to use Coconut oil as a moisturizer on my hands, feet, cuticles and hair, and I love how soft, smooth and moisturized it leaves my skin. It has a light and lovely nutty aroma that is quite pleasant.
If you love to cook with coconut oil, or you use it in your skin and hair care routines, then Dignity Coconuts is a company that you will be happy to learn about. They have a beautiful story, and an important objective to help make the world a better place.
Here is their amazing story:
We saw a problem: abject poverty. So we set out to find a solution. What we found was a sustainable business. The kind of business that transforms communities. We provide jobs in order to break the chains of poverty and slavery. We know that a person who is empowered to work and make a living for his or her family is a dignified person. And that person is less likely to become trapped in harmful cycles.
We are committed to making the best products on the market. Our team of engineers from the Philippines and US created a proprietary method for extracting coconut oil. This gentle way to obtain the oil creates the best coconut oil on earth - a product that our staff can be proud to sell to the global market.
We also bring jobs to those who need them most, in hard-to-reach places, often distressed communities. Even if it makes our jobs harder. Because that is where communities can be transformed by business. Those are the places where our business can be a catalyst to improve issues like unemployment rates, cycles of sickness, personal finances, education, environment, business development, leadership and water sanitation.
Our production plant is located in a relatively untouched area of the Philippines, full of pristine coconut trees. We have individually organic certified over 63,000 trees. We have trained our small-scale farmers in organic and sustainable practices that allow them to be proud of their harvest, as well as get a higher price for their work. Our 85 plant workers are paid fair wages for their work and given opportunities for training.
The message so many impoverished people hear is that they are somehow less - less intelligent, less capable, less motivated. Years of believing this can bury a person’s dignity. But it just isn’t true. We are seeing those lies shattered. We are seeing dignity unearthed and hope arise in villages along the coast of an often ignored part of the Philippines.
