The Banabans are an indigenous people from a small
Pacific island called Banaba or Ocean Island. In 1900
Banaba was discovered to be made of pure phosphate. This
fateful discovery would see the beginning of eighty
years of phosphate mining and the virtual destruction of
the Banaban's beloved homeland.
In 1945 the people were relocated to Rabi Island
over 2,000 miles away in the Fiji Island Group.
The Banabans and their island have now been left
forgotten still suffering from one of the world's
greatest environment and human rights injustices. The
phosphate rich deposits of Banaba are now scattered
across the farms of Australia, New Zealand and Great

Coconut has been used throughout
the Pacific and Asia for thousands of years as both a
food and a medicine. Only recently has modern medical
research confirmed the many health benefits
traditionally attributed to this remarkable oil.
Medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil also speed
up the body's metabolism) burning more calories and
promoting weight loss. The weight-loss effects of
coconut oil have been clearly demonstrated by many
researchers. These fatty acids do not circulate in the
bloodstream like other fats, but are sent directly to
the liver where they are immediately converted into
energy, just like carbohydrates.
So the body uses the fat in coconut oil to produce
energy, rather than store as body fat.
Virgin Coconut Oil helps increase the 'friendly
bacteria' on the skin and will not destroy the natural
pH balance which is necessary to promote healthy skin.
