How it all began

Kokoso Baby® is the organic skincare brand started by Lauren when she was a new mum looking for a natural solution for her little one’s sensitive skin. She discovered the wonders of raw virgin organic coconut oil and quickly became passionate about its many amazing skincare benefits and uses.

She and her husband Mark spent a long time searching for the perfect lightweight organic coconut oil packed with natural goodness – and didn’t stop until they’d found something really special to share with other parents and their little ones. After winning the Boots ‘Inspired by Baby’ competition and gaining investment on BBC’s Dragons’ Den, the mum and dad team set about creating a whole range of premium organic coconut oil toiletries for their babies and yours.

Our story so far…

A nutty idea

It all started with a little girl called Seren. Whilst caring for her super sensitive skin, Lauren had a rather nutty business idea.

New beginnings

It took a year of searching for the perfect coconut oil (and welcoming our second daughter) before we launched Kokoso Baby® in June 2014.

Inspired by baby

We only went and won the Boots ‘Inspired by Baby’ competition and launched our lovely coconut oil in 200 Boots stores nationwide. A dream come true!

As well as being chosen as a Start Up Loans Ambassador and visiting the Houses of Parliament, Lauren and Mark pitched to the Dragons and proudly accepted investment from Touker Suleyman.

Why we’re nutty about coconut oil

Coconut oil is the purest, gentlest, kindest way of caring for your baby’s skin. In the tropics this natural wonder oil has been used to nourish and moisturise skin for generations. Raw virgin coconut oil contains a unique combination of medium-chain fatty acids called lauric acid – a magical healing agent also found in breast milk – as well as caprylic acid and capric acid. These special fatty acids are made up of teeny, easily absorbable molecules perfect for sinking deep into your baby’s skin to comfort, hydrate and leave them feeling gorgeously baby-soft. Just as Mother Nature intended.
