Coconut Oil from Apia Markets?

Does anyone know if coconut oil (to use on the skin rather than in cooking) is sold at the Apia markets? Thanks.

Yes it is, you'll see the difference, the oil to use on skin is in very attractive bottles the cooking oil is usally in Coke or Fanta bottles.

You're welcome. If the market has run out you can buy it at chemists or any of the specialty stores in town

The best place in Apia to source coconut oil for cosmetic/skin use is from Women in Business Development. These amazing women have a program that is dedicated to "strengthening village economies in Samoa in ways that honour indigenous customs, use traditional and modern technology, and promote fair trade" and assisting families to earn an income where they live, with the resources they have. All of their virgin coconut oil products are 100% organic and very high quality. Here's a link to products page of their website:

You're most welcome! They really are an outstanding organization.

I think they have a selection of products at their office in Apia, but when in Samoa, it's easy enough just give them a call and ask. I'm sure they can direct you to the best place if they don't currently have products available in the office.
