Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Called in for a look and came away with some lovely skincare products. Went back and grabbed some coconut oil. Selection was low but the person that makes them was away. We were very happy with what we got and happy with the quality. Awesome to know they can be ordered online too.

We were welcomed by the owner who told us all about the products. They were a bit pricey but the tamanu oil, as everyone has mentioned, is well worth it. I would have bought more if I could afford it. A nice little stop on our way to lunch.

We first visited Rito 3 years with the Manuia Beach Resort and purchased the Lime Cooking Oil. Last year I visited Rito again and purchase 4 bottles of cooking oil. This year I purchased 4 of the larger bottles of cooking oil, include the unflavored cold pressed oil. I do not know of any other way to purchase pure coconut oil. I have not tried the skin care products, yet. I can vouch the oil is amazing. I cook it with shrimp aka prawns and zucchini noodles and it is a yummy treat. You can use just a small amount of the product and it goes a long way. I have used it on fish as well and WOW. I have purchased and used the Tamanu Oil for skin blemish, ie bites and it works. I especially love that every part of the coconut is used on the island and nothing is wasted.

Unique little place, popped in and watched them dry the coconuts out and compress it to get the oils etc.
With a shop available that sells a multitude of coconut oils and creams it’s worth a visit.

We actually purchased this on a previous visit along with a facial cream. We visited the house a part of the buggy tour but when back on our own for our ‘supplies’. The hosts/owners were very accommodating to have us back and showed us there supplies and went further into stories of how they use Tamanu Oil. We have used it of insect bites, excema, pimples and even things we aren’t sure what it is and the latest is infected sebaceous cysts (and antibiotics). Since using the Tamanu Oil the inflammation has reduced, the pain is subsiding and they look so much better !!!! I will be purchasing more, this stuff is MAGIC !!

Been to Rito to purchase products in Tikioki, Titikaveka in October 2014 and again in December 2017.
In January 2015, I got severely sunburnt, from relatively brief sun exposure and I was quite ill for several months and I am still in the process of recovering from the damage this sunburn caused not only to my legs but subsequently to my lymphatic system as well. While in Rarotonga in December 2017, I purchased some Rito - Cook Island skin care products and I was told that some of the ingredients in these products (all natural) had healing capabilities. I am one of those consumers who is very sceptical till I see something with my own eyes.
While still in Rarotonga, I started using Rito’s Tamanu oil, Body Butter and Revitalising Moisture Body Lotion and I continued to use when we got back to New Zealand. Within a few short weeks, I could see an improvement in my skin tone on my legs. My Husband had a small, sort of eczema patch on the inside of his wrist, which he has had for the past 2 years and after using Rito’s Tamanu oil this patch started fading after just 2 days of applying.
I love the fact that Rito products are all natural and speaking from experience, the healing abilities in some of their products is amazing!! Robert and Susan are so passionate on their products and together are a wealth of knowledge. Can't wait to visit Raro again.

I really enjoyed learning about how this company has close to 0 waste in the manufacturing of their products. Beautiful skin care and the Tamanu oil stopped all my giant welt mozzie bites from itching the entire plane trip home. Highly recommended1
