Hey, Sophie! We are in love with all of your products. Can you tell us how Sister & Co came to be?
I went on a yoga holiday to Goa at the end of 2013. The local ladies working at the retreat sold raw cold-pressed coconut oil, which they made at home. I had had problematic skin for years and they told me to wash my face with it. I really wasn’t sure about putting oil on my face but couldn’t believe it when a couple of days later, my skin had totally cleared up. I also noticed that it took my make up off more easily than any makeup remover I had ever bought, and also moisturized incredibly well without leaving a greasy residue.

I was so taken with the coconut oil that I started researching it and learnt all about its amazing nutritional benefits as well as its skincare benefits. I came back to London and went to stock up on coconut oil. Although coconut oil is readily available in London, none seemed as pure and light as what I had in Goa, and what’s more all were sold as cooking oils – there was very little focus on their skincare benefit.

That’s when I had the idea to source an oil of the quality I found in Goa, for making a skincare product as much as an edible product. While I sourced the oil, I set up a blog, a place to document all my recipes using coconut oil, both edible and skincare. This was very successful, particularly the skincare section, and made me even more excited to launch the product.

Sister & Co. has two arms – Sister & Co. Coconut Oil and Sister & Co. Skin Food. Coconut oil worked so effectively for my skin that I became very interested in researching other superfoods out there that work just as well on the outside as well as in.

This led me to develop the Skin Food range. Each product in the range is made with a base of our coconut oil and other food grade ingredients (virgin plant and nut oils, raw butters and waxes, natural clays, organic sugars and salts) with great nutritional benefits- all our Skin Food products are 100% natural and organic and most importantly, 100% effective.

What’s the biggest hurdle you’ve had to face?
As a start-up we face hurdles every day! Nothing has seemed too huge though – it helps when you’ve got a great team and such belief in your products.

What’s next for Sister & Co?
We’ve got a couple of new product releases in January – we’re keeping these secret for now, but we do have a very exciting new mother and baby product. We’re also launching our Coconut Oil, Activated Charcoal Tooth Whitening Polish and Raw Coconut for Oil Pulling in Space NK in January which we’re really excited about.

If you had to only pick one Sister & Co product, which one would you choose and why?
Besides our staple Sister & Co. Coconut Oil (which you can use for everything..), it would be our Raw Coconut & Activated Charcoal Tooth Whitening Polish. Activated Charcoal is amazing. After every use you feel like you’ve got a new set of teeth, and just want to smile! It’s brilliant.

What’s your biggest release?

Our Raw Coconut & Activated Charcoal Tooth Whitening Polish is such an exciting product and a real example of the power of nature. You just have to realise you’ll look like a character from a horror film when you’re using it…make sure no small children are around!


What is it?
It might sound bizarre putting black charcoal all over your teeth to make them whiter, but this 100% natural tooth polish from Sister and Co. removes stains and discolouration from the surface of your teeth to significantly whiten and brighten your smile.

What are the ingredients and its benefits?
Activated charcoal is used today and has been used throughout the centuries to treat people who have accidentally ingested poison – with its porous surface, it attaches to toxins and impurities in the body to draw them out. It works in just the same way on plaque, tannins and stains on teeth – safely and efficiently lifting these off. This polish is made with premium finely ground food grade activated coconut charcoal, ideal for dental use and non-abrasive.

Bentonite clay aids the charcoal’s work, absorbing heavy metals and delivering essential minerals, while organic peppermint and Australian lemon myrtle (citric acid-free) soothe, fight bacteria, reduce inflammation and add freshness.

Vitamin E and lauric acid in the Sister & Co. Coconut Oil base nourish and strengthen gums while contributing to the impurity removal process and whitening teeth’s appearance.

How do I use it?
You only need to use a small amount of this product, enough to cover the tips of your toothbrush bristles. Brush gently, in circular motions, for around two minutes and for extra power leave it in your mouth for a few minutes after brushing.

This product is suitable for even those with sensitive teeth and gums. It can be used as often as needed to achieve desired results.


What is it?
