We are a passionate group of Cocos Islands residents living on one of the most remote, pristine and exotic tropical islands on earth. Cocos Body Therapy produces a wonderful range of moisturising products to
nurture your skin from the drying effects of sun and wind.
The range includes natural lip balms, body salt scrubs and body butters. Coconuts are plentiful on the Islands and each individual product is made using 100%
Cocos Islands organic extra virgin coconut oil. The sea salt in our scrubs is hand crafted from the crystal clear waters that lap the Cocos shores and the beeswax is lifted from the hives of our coconut honey bees.
Operating as usual
Thank you everyone for the continued purchases of our coconut products and supporting our Cafe and Restaurant business - every coffee makes a difference, as proceeds support the farm.
We are now able to invest in a coconut de-shelling unit. The team are very excited, should be here in March. This will enable the employment of two additional workers at the farm to produce desiccated coconut for our coconut cream and oil production.
The essential, mysterious coconut: Where did it come from and how did it spread so widely? The history and controversy of coconuts – including how New Zealand's own variety disappeared.
We are back into Bunbury Farmers Market !!!
The first batch of Coconut Body Butter was made today for this weeks Farm Shop opening on Wednesday. The team also packaged lip balms, body scrubs and sea salts. Production Tours will also be available starting at 9am. Book through the Cocos Visitor Centre or one of the Cafes (Salty's or Saltmakers)
Wild Coconut Farm
Good news at last - The farm will re commence Coconut Production Tours for the public after a 14 month break. The COVID situation and recent cyclone issues have diverted our attention to other urgent matters that will be completed this month (clean up operation on Surfer Girl and farm areas).
Now that visitors are back on the islands, employment opportunities can begin again through the production of sea salt and coconut related products.
So from April, every Wednesday the farm will be open for visitors to experience a unique coconut production and tasting tour. This includes sampling a range of sea salts, fresh coconut cream and be involved in other interactive related activities.
A number of farming activities are being planned for this year, if anyone wants to assist please let us know or has any creative farming ideas.
After a 12 month lock down we are cranking up production on all product. A sneak preview this week’s coconut productio.

Australia's remote Cocos (Keeling) Islands take gold at tourism awards
Last night the Cocos (Keeling) Islands (CKI) were awarded a gold medal at Western Australia’s 2019 Top Tourism Town Awards.
It is a significant achievement for one of Australia’s most remote external territories to be recognised as an emerging tourism town.
CKI is located in Australia’s Indian Ocean Territories (IOT), almost 3000 kilometres north-west of Perth, and 1,270 kilometres south-west of Jakarta, Indonesia.
There are 27 coral islands in the group with a total land area of approximately 15.6 square kilometres featuring unique bird life, marine environments and national parks, and a diverse culture and history.
The awards, run by Visitor Centres WA, are now in their 30th year and hotly contested by local tourism destinations. Medals were presented at the WA Regional Tourism Conference in the Pilbara region last night.
The awards attracted more than 8,000 public votes and praise for CKI’s “pristine beaches, stunning underwater world and a welcoming and friendly multicultural community”.

Hi everyone, greetings from Cocos Islands. I hope you are living in the moment and simply.
LATEST from the Coconut Farmer - Tony Lacy
"A huge shift in our coconut chip branding has evolved over the past 2 weeks as I met Fred, a visiting French sailor on our islands en route to Reunion Island near Madagascar, his wife flew back to Paris (a teacher), and he works in the perfume industry in Paris. After his departure he left such an impression, that it will fundamentally change our current WILD COCONUT brand (prior to public release), to a more personal brand that showcases the people here on our islands."
"The aim is to have a personal brand that people can connect with... we need to steer away from this corporate branding as COLES consumers are not our target market.
Watch this space for more in the development of our new thinking".
