The Kokoso Difference
There are a few reasons why Kokoso Baby, the award-winning organic coconut oil specially selected for head-to-toe infant skincare, is different to other coconut oil brands.
Not all coconut oils are the same. It’s all down to the quality of the coconuts, the conditions in which they grow and the process used to make the oil. All of these factors affect the fragrance, texture and the grade of the finished product. Think about the wide variety of olive oils you find in the supermarket. It's amazing how different they can be... and the same goes for coconut oil.
That's why we spent a long time searching the world for the perfect, purest, highest quality coconut oil for your baby's skin - a premium product that parents can trust is packed full of amazing nourishing nutrients, smells divine and, crucially, absorbs better into your baby's delicate skin.
How we make Kokoso Baby Coconut Oil
Kokoso Baby uses the finest organic coconuts from some of the oldest coconut trees in Thailand grown on our ethical, family-run, certified-organic farm. Each coconut that makes it into our pots is lovingly raised for around 12 months and then hand-checked before going through a very gentle yet state-of-the-art process to make our raw, cold-pressed, virgin, organic coconut oil.
Kokoso Baby comes from the first press of the coconuts and we don’t use any chemicals or unnecessary heat to make the oil. It is also fresh-pressed (sometimes referred to as wet-pressed or wet-milled), which means the coconut fruit isn't dried out like you'll find with many other varieties of coconut oil. If left to dry in the sunlight or over a fire, bacteria can fester which means the dried out coconut fruit, called copra, needs to be washed with chlorine.
Because Kokoso Baby coconuts are always pressed within three hours of being opened, they are only ever cleaned using purified water.
But perhaps most importantly, part of the cutting-edge, protected process used to make Kokoso Baby was invented by a university professor. This unique ultra cold extraction technique creates an oil that is lighter, thinner and less dense than others - so it absorbs beautifully into baby skin.
The mum behind Kokoso also selected this coconut oil because she’s very picky. She rejected countless coconut oils before deciding on this one for all the reasons listed above AND because of its fresh mild coconutty fragrance and smooth creamy texture. In fact we believe our coconut oil is as close in fragrance to freshly opened coconut as it comes. Many of the others we tested from around the world had an overpowering, sickly-sweet smell like desiccated coconut, and felt greasy or gritty on our baby's skin. Not good.
Packaging and testing
What’s more, we’ve chosen fit-for-purpose, baby-safe, BPA-free, recyclable packaging as opposed to a heavy glass jars that we feel are potentially dangerous around inquisitive little hands. Our thoughtful new pots also come with a handy inner lid to help avoid spills when the oil melts to a liquid above 24 degrees.
Last but not least, Kokoso has been dermatologically tested and is proven to be suitable for sensitive skin, mild for skin and kind to skin and suitable for eczema-prone skin. In addition, every batch we make is tested to ensure it's as pure and perfect as can be.
We believe Kokoso Baby is the only coconut oil brand that can say all of this!
