CocoTherapy with Charisa Antigua and Carmina O’Connor. Sisters Charisa Antigua and Carmina O’Connor come from a coconut producing family, coconuts have been a big part of their family for three generations. Growing up in the Philippines, Charisa and Carmina watched their grandmother make coconut oil in her small kitchen, using only the freshest coconuts sourced and harvested from the family plantation. Through personal experience with Charisa’s beloved Yorkie, Violet, Charisa and Carmina quickly learned that there were differences in coconut oil and how it can help animals with chronic allergies and other health issues. After launching CocoTherapy in 2009, Antigua and O’Connor have worked to tirelessly teach others about therapeutic-grade coconut oil and have seen how it has helped countless animals around the world.

They started giving out their coconut oil and coconut chips to their friends whose cat or dog could benefit from coconut oil. Their friends feedback was rewarding and encouraging, and they wanted to know where they could get more of the “really high-quality” stuff the sisters had. It became apparent to them that it is hard to find really good organic virgin coconut oil, and even more difficult to find organic, pure, non-processed dried coconut chips. So what started out as a love for a product slowly became a mission-of-love to share the oil and chips with other pets as well. The sisters realize that there are other brands of coconut oil available, but they also know that there are many levels of quality and different ways to produce and manufacture coconut oil. Because they consider their pets as important members of their family, they wanted to provide them with the very best coconut oil available, manufactured in the absolute highest standard in the industry.
