The importance of natural baby skincare
Perfumes. Parabens. Petroleum by-products. These are the last things you’d knowingly rub into your little one’s delicate skin. Yet, sadly, ingredients like this are common in many conventional baby toiletries.
As a new mum I was one of the 89% of parents worried about these potentially harmful chemicals.* It’s our instinct to nourish and protect our babies; there is nothing more scrumptious or delicate than their baby-soft newborn skin. Did you know it’s around three times thinner than our own skin? What’s more, relative to weight, the surface area of your baby’s skin is three to five times bigger than yours. This means any substances that manage to penetrate the skin will be far more concentrated in their tiny bodies – increasing the risk of toxicity.
The long-term effects of chemical additives in baby skincare products are not always known. But researchers believe our little ones are at higher risk of disease later in life if exposed to nasties now. In the short-term, they can lead to mild allergic reactions causing rashes and minor skin irritation, or even more significant problems like lesions on the skin.
That’s why we passionately believe it’s so important to choose high quality organic products like Kokoso Baby Coconut Oil to care for our babies’ skin. Just as nature intended.
A genuine natural solution
Our premium fresh-pressed organic coconut oil provides 100% natural head-to-toe infant skincare. Plus a whole lot of parental peace of mind! A product created for all mums and dads who want the best for their children’s skin, Kokoso Baby is completely chemical-free, safe and gentle – and can work wonders as a natural emollient in so many different ways.
Kokoso Baby is packed with amazing skin-loving natural properties, moisturising fatty acids (including more than 50% lauric acid, a clever healing agent also found in breast milk) and nourishing vitamin E.
You can use our multipurpose moisturiser every day (several times a day if required) as a:
· body butter
· baby massage oil
· bottom balm
· or whenever their skin needs some special TLC
Why choose Kokoso Baby over another coconut oil?
Our raw virgin organic coconut oil has been specially selected to care for the delicate skin of your baby. Produced on an ethical family-run farm, it is made without using chemicals or heat and goes through a unique ultra cold extraction process that creates the highest grade of coconut oil, which is more lightweight than others, non-greasy and perfect for nourishing even the most sensitive skin.
And because our special variety of mature organic coconuts are fresh-pressed, which means they’re turned into oil within three hours of being opened, Kokoso Baby has a notably fresh and subtle fragrance – as close to the smell of fresh coconuts as it comes. This is really important to us because it means Kokoso Baby complements the natural smell of baby skin rather than overpowering it, like other stronger coconut oils tend to do.
We hope you enjoy using Kokoso Baby and would love to know what you think!
Kokoso Baby is available at Boots, JoJo Maman Bebe and right here on our lovely website.
Kokoso Baby is a premium quality raw virgin organic coconut oil specially selected for head-to-toe baby skincare. It hasn’t been refined, bleached, deodorised or tinkered with. We’ve simply left all of its amazing natural nutrients to do the important job of moisturising your little one’s skin.
