Nature has always intended to nurture life by encouraging growth and offering the essentials needed for every living creature to thrive. It is complete, never wanting, and never ending. Since the beginning of time, man has depended on nature’s generosity for sustenance, healing, and overall wellness. And just as his environment raises man to become wiser, he learns of better ways of getting more out of nature’s intrinsic wealth, while being mindful enough to preserve its pure, organic state.
Such is the beneficial relationship between man and nature—a constant cycle of discovery, dependence, and development that, in turn, strive to make every life better. And such is the rewarding dynamic that founded Laurin, a life-giving superfood supplement that captures the nourishing power of nature and man’s capacity to harness it.
The humble coconut (Cocos nucifera) has figured as the second national tree of the Philippines, largely credited for its widespread growth across the archipelago, just as the plant’s versatility, that benefits the daily lives of its people. The country is recognized as one of the world’s largest producer of coconut, and had, for decades, relied much on copra or coconut oil—as its largest agricultural export.
Once prized for its industrial uses, crude coconut oil remains a low-value export product, involving rudimentary processing in higher volumes, which means lower profits for its indigenous farmers. Until, in the 1990s, when a rediscovery of coconut oil’s inherent medicinal and holistic properties drove the demand for a more premium, better processed product that entails more advanced manufacturing methods.
Coconut oil is a rich source of lauric acid, an easily digestible, beneficial form of vegetal fat that support hormonal activity, protect gut health, increase energy, and strengthen immunity; a natural, single-source superfood that can greatly empower the daily workings of the human body, as well as improve its overall conditions.
The ancient Filipinos have harnessed coconut oil for its medicinal properties, making them the first to acquire such nurturing wisdom. However, in the age of globalization, Filipinos have not been the same pioneers in the innovation needed to process coconut oil to maximize its healthful properties.
For over 40 years, we at Chemrez Technologies, Inc. have been at the forefront of developing consumer products that cater to their most pressing needs—whether in health, lifestyle, or overall well-being. With a team of more than 40 chemists, technicians and consultants, as supported by an advanced research and development facility, we at Chemrez decided to embark on the challenge of nurturing the Filipino wisdom founded on coconut oil’s health-giving power. After years of testing and development, we are able to unlock the next valuable step in coconut oil processing, bringing pride and provenance back to Philippine shores.
Tapping into the healthful potential of coconut oil by isolating its component makeup, we at Chemrez were able to extract the medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), the magic compound unique to coconut oil that is potent in health-giving and life-sustaining properties. Likened to human breast milk, MCT is a rich source of four fatty acids that are considered building blocks of cells: Caproic Acid, Caprylic Acid, Capric Acid, and Lauric Acid. This development enables us at Chemrez to employ these unique fatty acids and increase their utility, to create exceptional and diversified products to deliver better nutrition, lifestyle, and quality of life.
After years of dedicated clinical development, we introduce Laurin, an empowering, natural superfood that subscribes to modern day’s demands for effective supplements that address one’s daily needs.
Laurin is a premium all-natural CocoMCT®-based oil, a high quality product that delivers better nutrition, lifestyle, and quality of life. Laurin is the modern coconut oil—it’s the very goodness of coconut in its most concentrated form. Extracted to its purest form, Laurin CocoMCT® is light, flavorfree and always liquid. Nothing is added, only the healthy portion of the oil is retained. How can something so powerful come from such a simple source, one may ask. Like the coconut plant that produces it, the life-giving, health-nourishing oil of Laurin combines the multi-faceted functions of MCT to create diverse products that can nurture, sustain, and empower the lives of our consumers. At the heart of it all is the pride that while nature can inspire a life well-lived, life can make the most of what our nature can give.
