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.
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.
A new addition
After 18 months of formulating and testing, we launched our long-awaited second product – our Gentle Hair & Body Wash. We were also thrilled to scoop Gold for Best Baby Toiletries Collection in the Junior Design Awards!
Then came our Happy Scalp Cream™, a pure and gentle baby scalp cream that scooped Best New Product Launch of 2018 in the Beauty Shortlist Awards!
Moving on up
We launched our Organic Baby Soap and moved into bigger premises. In November we launched our Baby-Soft Balm Stick in eco-friendly cardboard packaging. We also bought out our Dragon and became a fully independent family business again. Go us!
In March we launched our lovely Coconut Oil Baby Lotion with a ‘Buy One, Gift One’ initiative for NHS frontline workers. In August we were incredibly proud to be one of 19 brands brought together by The Duchess of Cambridge to help support the most vulnerable families in the UK. Collectively we donated over 10,000 new items to more than 40 baby banks nationwide.
