Reportedly, the coconut industry is a dirty business.
Not only is it environmentally harmful but it exploits workers, amounting to modern-day slavery.
Dignity Coconut set out to change that.
They built their production plant in an impoverished, rural community in the Philippines which provided jobs and in turn, raised up the entire community. Before the area had been susceptible to human trafficking. Dignity also paid living wages, unlike the other companies that paid pennies a day, keeping people in abject poverty.
Each jar is hand-signed by the workers so you know you’ve made a difference.
It’s also the best coconut oil you can buy. You can use it for cooking but we use it for dry skin — just lather it on before you go to sleep at night and in the morning you’ve got nourished silken skin.
Coconut oil has natural antimicrobial properties so it’s safe to use on acne-prone skin and it’s great for cuts and burns. (Ask us how we know.)
Devotees swear by using Dignity raw organic coconut oil for dandruff control as well.
$7.95 for a 4 oz. jar.
