LIKHAAN ENTERPRISES, Inc. (LEI) is an “enterprise development project” of The Likhaan Group in the Philippines. It is a marketing project consisting of four operating divisions: 1) Network (MULTI-LEVEL) Marketing [MLM], 2) Franchise Marketing (as an affiliate of other Multi-Level Marketing/ Distribution Groups), 3) Merchandise Market-ing, and 4) Import-Export Marketing.
Network (Multi-Level) Marketing [MLM] – LEI promotes direct selling operations using independent distributors/dealers. It is engaged in the marketing of locally-produced and foreign-made products through a multi-level (network) marketing scheme combining recruitment of independent distributors of LEI product-lines and direct product sales. The emphasis is on rewarding distributors/sales agents who achieve high sales record by providing special incentives and bonuses to LEI “franchise distributors.” The MLM system utilizes business partners (investors) who handles direct selling operations in a particular province-city-municipality—one to three partners per province, several partners per city, and one or two per municipality, depending on the market size of the area, both physical and population characteristics.
Franchise Marketing (as an affiliate of other Multi-Level Marketing/Distribution Groups) – LEI obtains separate franchise arrangement with multi-level marketing companies with highly saleable—even if highly-priced—products; provided, however, that their products have proven beneficial results among users.
Merchandise (Sales) Marketing – LEI buys, sells locally-made products, and distributes these throughout the country through wholesale/retail distribution outlets and institutional marketing utilizing sales agents/representatives. Accordingly, LEI participates in local trade exhibits/festivals or market exhibitions.
Import-Export Marketing – LEI engages in the importation of foreign-made products and distributing these products throughout the country. It also export high-quality, locally-made products and market these products to foreign countries on wholesale basis. Accordingly, LEI participates in local trade exhibits/festivals and foreign trade missions and/or market exhibitions.

Network Distribution Scheme– The network (multi-level marketing) system is the major marketing strategy of Likhaan. Two-pronged market distribution approaches are being carried out:
- Direct Selling utilizing a network of Neighborhood and Officemate Dealers [NOD] (consisting of registered network-franchisees) in metropolitan cities, big urban centers as well as capital cities and municipalities.
- Distribution outlets utilizing successful registered networkers who operate Area Distribution Centers [ADC] in franchise areas where there are sufficient numbers of registered networkers. The ADC serves as the supply centers where any registered networkers can purchase their products. ADCs obtain their products directly from Likhaan’s Central Distribution Center [CDC].
Initial training-seminars (business orientation and product presentations) for network-franchisees are conducted at the CDC. Subsequently, ADCs handle networkers’ training-seminars as well as by successful networkers at their own initiative. However, official registration of all networkers is accepted only by the CDC-Registration Center.

About our handmade soap-making -
Soap-making is an ancient art, but a new art for our soap-makers, mostly women.
In the Philippines, herbs rich in saponin are traditionally used for cleansing hair, face
and body. Soap offers a great way for us to use a variety of beneficial herbs and give
women a craft to sustain themselves. They pride themselves in creatively mixing up
the oils and herbs to make each batch of our soap by hand for you.
All soap is made by a chemical reaction between an acid (we use coconut oils as our acid) and a base (a solution of sodium hydroxide and water, also called lye), to produce soap and glycerin. A variety of different processes can be used to make soap, but all LIKHAAN soap is handmade using the traditional cold-process method. In this technique, when the coconut oils are mixed with the lye solution, only the heat of the reaction (without addition of any external heat) drives the soap-making process forward. To ensure purity and quality we make our soaps in small batches using the finest blends of oils and natural botanicals. After curing the soaps for at least three days, we cut and label them by hand.
LIKHAAN soaps are ‘cruelty’-free, using no animal fats or artificial dyes. Each bar is long-lasting and fortified with Vitamin B, C, D, E and F, citrus extract, castor oil, hydrolyzed corn oil, fragrance and essences. Virgin coconut oils (VCO) is our major ingredient, it makes a gentle, sophisticated natural soap. Herbal infusions, essential oils and carabao milk, can also be found in some of our soaps. This makes a luxurious, thick, rich, lather that is dense and penetrating, with character and richness in every bar.
- Our products are handmade with special attention to the detail of each natural ingredient.
- Our handmade “cold process” soaps retain the precious glycerin released when the oil blend is saponified. This retained glycerin makes the soap milder and more moisturizing than regular commercial bars.
- Using only the finest blends of coconut and castor oils, and citrus extracts, all of our handmade soap contains a large percentage of coconut oil making them a mild castile blend. Our complexion soap is enriched with various blends of essential oils and local fragrances, plus various herbal infusions using organic herbs and flowers. We take great pride in the high quality of our handmade soap.
Commercial Soap and Body Care Products
Commercially milled soap is often harder than cold-process soap, but the milling process removes glycerin, the natural moisturizer that is created when soap is made. We prefer to retain the natural glycerin in our soap and recommend the use of a draining soap dish to prolong the life of our soap. Soap left sitting in water will dissolve more quickly than soap that is allowed to drain after use. We believe it’s important to be as concerned about what we put on our bodies as what we put into them.
LIKHAAN uses only natural ingredients, so our soaps do not leave any chemical residues on the skin. And the use of pure essential oils instead of synthetic scents means that our soap fragrances do not remain on the skin. We do not test our soap on animals, just family and friends. We hope that if you try our soap, you will enjoy it as much as we do.

|NATURE’S MIRACLE OIL
Dr. Bruce Fife
Excerpts from HEALTHY WAYS NEWSLETTER
The quality of the food we eat has an enormous impact on our state of health. The healthier our foods are, the healthier we are. For this reason, it is important that we eat the foods that provide the most benefit. Some foods are good because they are loaded with vitamins and minerals as well as fiber. A few are classified as functional foods because they provide health benefits beyond their nutritional content. These foods have therapeutic value that can protect us from many common health problems.
One such food is so powerful that I have seen it clear up flu symptoms almost overnight, stop bladder infections, remove precancerous skin lesions, bring quick relief from Crohn’s disease, heal chronic psoriasis, and improve symptoms associated with hypoglycemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism, and chronic fatigue, among others. Medical researchers are now using it in the fight against AIDS.
What is this incredible health food? You may be surprised to learn that this miracle of nature is coconut, more specifically, coconut oil. Shocked? Most people are.
Once mistakenly believed to be bad for the heart because of its saturated fat content, coconut oil is now known to contain a unique form of saturated fat that actually helps prevent heart disease, stroke, and hardening of the arteries as well as provide many other health benefits.
Interestingly enough, the secret to coconut oil’s healing powers came as a result of research on human breast milk. Breast milk has been called nature’s perfect food. It contains all the vitamins, minerals, and other substances necessary to feed a baby for the first year or so of life. Within this milk are certain nutrients that not only provide an ideal source of nourishment but also protect the baby from disease causing bacteria, viruses, and fungi that are so prevalent in our environment.
Years ago it was discovered that human breast milk contains a unique group of saturated fats known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). These fats are very different from the fats in meat and vegetables that are commonly found in our foods.
When eaten, the body transforms MCTs into monoglycerides and medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), both of which possess powerful antimicrobial properties capable of killing disease causing bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It is due primarily to the presences of MCTs in human breast milk that protect babies from infections for the first few months of their lives while their immune systems are still developing.
The fats in our food are composed almost entirely of long-chain triglycerides (LCTs). Some 98 to 100% of the fats and oils we eat consist of LCTs. Other than breast milk there are very few good dietary sources of MCTs. By far the richest natural source of MCTs comes from coconut. Coconut oil is unique in that is composed predominately of MCTs. For this reason, coconut oil can have a pronounced impact on our health just as mother’s milk does on newborn infants. This is what makes coconut oil different from all other oils and what gives it its unique healing characteristics.
Researchers theorized that if MCTs from breast milk could protect babies from infections, they could also protect other age groups as well. If this is true, a source rich in MCTs could provide a safe and effective way to fight off infectious illnesses. Since coconut oil is the richest natural source of MCTs, researchers have studied it extensively in this respect. They have found that MCFAs, which are created from the breakdown of MCTs in coconut oil, possess very powerful antimicrobial properties. This is well documented in the medical literature. Studies show that MCFAs from coconut oil are effective in killing bacteria that cause ulcers, sinus infections, bladder infections, dental cavities, pneumonia, gonorrhea, and many other illnesses. They kill fungi and yeasts that cause ringworm, athlete’s foot, jock itch, and candidiasis. They kill viruses that cause influenza, measles, herpes, mononucleosis, and hepatitis C. They even kill HIV—the AIDS virus.
Because of published studies that have shown that MCFAs kills the AIDS virus many HIV infected people have added it to their treatment programs with success. Chris Dafoe of Cloverdale Indiana, had a viral load of 600,000, which indicated the infection was rapidly overpowering his body. He began eating coconut every day. Within weeks his viral load dropped to non-detectable levels. Many others have reported similar experiences.
A clinical study carried out in the Philippine provided more proof that coconut oil is effective in fighting off infection. A group of HIV patients were given 3 tablespoons of coconut oil a day. They received no other treatment. After 3 months 60% of them had a lower viral load and were doing better.
Antibiotics have been hailed as the miracle drugs of the 20th century. At first they seemed to be effective in stopping many of the dreaded diseases of the past. However, new strains of bacteria have been arising that are resistant to these drugs and infectious illnesses are on the rise. The overuse of antibiotics has led to the rise of these so-called supergerms. Scientists are continually trying to develop new antibiotics to fight these new drug-resistant strains of bacteria.
While antibiotics may be necessary at times, the problem with them is that they are often toxic to us as well as the bacteria they are designed to kill. They affect our health in other ways too. Antibiotics kill all the bacteria in the body, including friendly gut bacteria. In the absence of friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract, candida, a troublesome yeast, is allowed to grow unrestrained. This often leads to candidiasis.
MCFAs also kill disease-causing bacteria. But unlike antibiotics, they are not toxic to us and do not harm friendly gut bacteria. An added benefit with MCFAs is that they also kill candida. So the intestinal environment is left in better shape than it was before. In addition, they do not promote antibiotic resistance or the development of so-called supergerms.
MCFAs do another thing antibiotics can’t and that is kill viruses. Antibiotics can’t touch viruses. In fact, there are no medications that can effectively kill viruses. Vaccination is the only weapon we have against them. However, the safety of vaccinations is being seriously questioned. When you get the flu there isn’t anything the doctor can do for you. All he can do is give you medications that may make the symptoms easier to cope with, but your body has to do all the work in fighting off the infection. Some viral infections can linger on in the body indefinitely. Once infected with herpes or hepatitis C, for example, you have it for life. MCFAs offer a natural, harmless method of ridding the body of these troublemakers or at least allowing you to live a normal life without serious symptoms. No medication can do that. Coconut oil is perhaps the strongest antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal dietary supplement you can get without a doctor’s prescription.
Although MCFAs are deadly to many disease-causing microorganisms, they are completely harmless to us. In fact, they are so safe that nature puts them into mother’s milk to nourish newborn infants.
Food processors have recognized the importance of MCTs in mother’s milk and have been adding it in various forms to infant formula for years. MCTs not only help protect babies from infections but they provide an important source of nutrition. One the differences between MCTs in coconut oil and the long-chain triglycerides (LCTs) that are more commonly found in our diet is the way in which our bodies digest and metabolize them. MCTs digest very easily. Unlike LCTs, MCTs do not need pancreatic digesting enzymes or bile for digestion. Because they digest so quickly they provide a quick source of nutrition without taxing the enzyme systems of the body. Studies have shown that when premature infants are give formula containing MCTs they grow faster and have a higher survival rate. This is another reason why they are added to commercial infant formulas.
As the name implies, long-chain triglycerides are larger than medium-chain triglycerides. The size is extremely important because our bodies digest and metabolize each fat differently based on its size. Therefore, the physiological effects of MCTs from coconut oil are distinctly different from those of LCTs. These differences have a pronounced impact on our health.
Let me briefly describe how the two types of fat are digested. When we eat fats composed of LCTs they travel through the stomach and into the intestinal tract. It is in the intestines where the vast majority of fat digestion occurs. Pancreatic enzymes and bile are necessary for digestion. LCTs are reduced into individual long-chain fatty acids. These fatty acids are absorbed into the intestinal wall. Inside the intestinal wall they are repackaged into bundles of fat and protein call lipoproteins. These lipoproteins are then sent into the bloodstream. As they circulate in the bloodstream they release particles of fat. This is the source of the fat that collects in our fat cells and the fat that collects in and clogs up artery walls. As the lipoproteins get smaller they eventually go to the liver. In the liver they are dismantled and used for energy or repackage into new lipoproteins and again sent back into the bloodstream to disperse fat throughout the body.
MCTs are processed differently. When we eat a fat containing MCTs, such as coconut oil, it travels through the stomach and into the small intestine. But since MCTs digest quickly, by the time they leave the stomach and enter the intestinal tract they are already broken down into individual fatty acids (MCFAs). Therefore, they do not need pancreatic enzymes or bile for digestion. Since they are already reduced to fatty acids as they enter the small intestine, they are immediately absorbed into the portal vein and sent straight to the liver. In the liver they are preferentially used as a source of fuel to produce energy. MCFAs bypass the lipoprotein stage in the intestinal wall and in the liver. They do not circulate in the bloodstream to the degree that other fats do. Therefore, they do not supply the fat that collects in fat cells nor do they supply the fat that collects in artery walls. MCFAs are used to produce energy, not body fat and not arterial plaque.
The fact that MCTs are easier to digest than other fats is good news for those with digestive concerns. Newborn infants, cystic fibrosis sufferers, those with gallbladder problems, and anyone who has difficulty digesting fats can benefit from using coconut oil. This is particularly true for those who have gallbladder surgery. The surgical removal of the gallbladder makes fat digestion difficult. The gallbladder collects and holds bile secreted by the liver. When we eat a meal containing fat, the gallbladder is emptied into the intestinal tract. Bile emulsifies the fat allowing digestive enzymes to effectively break it down. When the gallbladder has been surgically removed, there no longer is a reservoir of bile. The liver continues to make bile but instead of collecting in the gallbladder it constantly drains into the intestinal tract. Only a small amount of bile is present at any time. If too much fat is eaten at any one time it causes intestinal distress and cramping. So fat consumption needs to be limited.
Because coconut oil digests without the need of bile, those people who have had gallbladder surgery can consume this fat without fear. I have had people tell me they could only handle a very small amount of fat without it causing them discomfort, but they could eat a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil at one time without problem.
Because MCTs are digested and assimilated easily by the body, they increase the absorption of other nutrients as well. Studies show that MCTs enhance the absorption of minerals, particularly calcium and magnesium. They improve the absorption of some of the B vitamins, the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K, and beta-carotene), as well as amino acids. Nature was wise in adding MCTs to breast milk.
Because MCTs provide a quick source of nutrition and improves absorption of other nutrients, coconut oil has been recommended in the treatment of malnutrition. Studies show that when coconut oil is added into the diets of malnourished children their recovery is quicker. Keep in mind that coconut oil does not necessary supply all the missing nutrients. It simply makes what nutrients that are already present in the diet more bioavailable.
The benefits of coconut oil don’t stop there. Research suggests that coconut oil may be of help in preventing numerous other health problems including breast and colon cancer, liver disease, kidney disease, Crohn’s disease, chronic fatigue, obesity, and even epilepsy. When you consider all the things coconut oil can do, you can see why I call it nature’s miracle oil.
Fortunately, babies aren't the only ones who can benefit from MCFAs. We can all enjoy the benefits of MCFAs by adding coconut oil into our diets.
How do you use it? Some people take it by the spoonful like a dietary supplement. I prefer to use it in food preparation. You can use it in most any recipe that calls for margarine, shortening, butter, or vegetable oil. One of the distinctive characteristics of coconut oil is its high melting point. At temperatures of 76 degrees F and above the oil is liquid like any other vegetable oil. At temperatures below this it becomes solid like butter. So a jar of coconut oil may be liquid or solid depending on the temperature.
If you would like to learn more about the healing benefits of coconut oil and how to incorporate it into your life, I recommend you read my book The Coconut Oil Miracle. You can get it directly from the publisher at www.piccadillybooks.com.
