Ditas is the lady behind CocoNurture– a fantastic range of organic coconut food and body products. She’s a great friend of mine – I actually met Ditas at the neighbourhood park where we take our daughters. We randomly struck up a conversation and I was immediately inspired by her story. Born and raised in the Philippines, Ditas grew up around coconut oil – she remembers her mother cooking with it and slathering it on her hair and skin – it’s always been a staple.
Today she lives in Singapore with her family, but works directly with local farmers and manufacturers in the Philippines who produce coconut oil. She’s focused on building a sustainable business that will help to support the people that she works with back in her hometown.
Ditas started with just one product: organic, cold-pressed coconut oil. It was so well received, that today she’s grown the product line to everything from organic coconut flour, coconut sugar, coconut snacks to body oil and shampoo. They have a lovely kiddie range too!
I turn to CocoNurture for many of my workshops – using their coconut oil not only in the food recipes that I teach, but also for skincare and haircare recipes too! I love how versatile it is – you’ll get tons of uses from one bottle. If you want ideas and recipes – check out my Coconut Oil for Skin, Hair & Food recipes!
Do check out her website – I think she’s done an incredible job at creating a full range of coconut products, without compromising on quality or integrity. I’m pretty obsessed with the coconut chips – I can demolish an entire bag!
