Our Story

 

Our British-Filipino founder, Melissa, first fell in love with coconut oil whilst exploring her roots in the Philippines. She travelled around the islands to find the very best coconuts, and decided to share the archipelago's best-kept secret with Europe. 

The rest, as they say, is coconut oil.


Virginutty Philippine Coconut Oil London

About Virginutty
 

Uniquely Filipino, with British Roots

Virginutty's premium skincare uses exclusively Philippine virgin coconut oil and quality raw natural ingredients, batch produced and hand bottled in London.  We are cruelty free, paraben free and vegan.


Conscious and Green

Our coconut oil is sustainably produced, fair trade and 100% organic. Our packaging is recyclable, with labels created from food waste.
 

Empowering Minorities

Virginutty works with Filipino, Southeast Asian and ethnic minority models with island cultural heritages to celebrate the native roots of the coconut.

Our Mission 

We want to give back. To the Philippines, to the farmers, and to the earth. We founded this brand with socially conscious visions for the future - including supporting grassroots agricultural charities, and perhaps even setting up our own farm. But nothing that comes easy is worth it, and nothing that is worth it comes easy. Because Virginutty is a startup, there are certain costs that we cannot yet afford, but are actively working towards, such as registering for organic and fair trade certification in the UK. In the meantime, our suppliers are fair trade and organic certified in the Philippines and in the US. We want to remain as transparent as we can with our consumers and collaborators - as transparent as our coconut oil above room temperature.
