How coconut oil cleared up my baby’s dry skin. And inspired a new business!

As a mum of two sensitive-skinned babies, I can’t praise the amazing moisturising powers of coconut oil enough. I'm so passionate about this multipurpose wonder oil that I was inspired to start this business, so that other parents and their little ones could benefit from the highest quality raw fresh-pressed organic coconut oil too.

How coconut oil worked for us

When my first baby developed dry skin, I was worried about using perfumed, chemical-heavy skincare lotions. I wanted to find something completely natural and organic yet gentle and effective. And Kokoso Baby really is all of these things wrapped up in one special pot of skincare goodness.

In a nutshell, I massaged a little coconut oil into my baby's skin a few times a day. A good rule of thumb is to do this at every nappy change (I used it as a bottom balm too so it was easy to remember) but if you’re out and about for the day then morning and bedtime is enough. And remember you only need to apply a thin layer as a little goes a long way.

For my daughter, the results were amazing. I was bowled over by the way coconut oil made her skin feel. Since then, using Kokoso Baby as a moisturiser and massage oil after every bath works to keep her dry skin at bay. And she has beautifully soft, glowing and sweet-smelling skin to this day.

But don't just take my word for it. One lovely mum told us:

"Our baby girl is 4 weeks old and I have been using Kokoso on her for the past 3 days, she had patches of dry skin on her hands, feet, tummy and face. As soon as I began using it I noticed an amazing difference to her skin, the dry patches have almost cleared and her skin is so soft. It has a very subtle coconut smell, which is lovely for my hands too! I would highly recommend Kokoso Baby."

Patch test

Coconut allergies are rare but as with all natural products, we always recommend carrying out a skin patch test when using Kokoso Baby for the first time. 

More than a moisturiser

Of course, Kokoso Baby Coconut Oil is so much more than just a natural emollient for dry skin. As mentioned above it can also be used as a silky soft bottom balm and it’s the perfect natural oil to use for a nutrient rich organic baby massage. You'll find more information on all of these topics on our blog.

As my little girls have grown, I also reach for the Kokoso whenever there’s a scrape or graze from their toddler escapades. We call it the magic cream.
