The Kokoso Difference
There are a few reasons why Kokoso Baby, the multi award-winning organic coconut oil specially selected for baby skincare, is different to other coconut oil brands.
Not all coconut oils are the same. Even if they are 'raw, virgin and organic', there can be a big difference between two different brands. 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 varied they can be... and the same goes for coconut oil.
That's why the mum and dad behind Kokoso Baby spent a long time searching for the perfect, purest, highest quality coconut oil for little ones - 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.
The secret's in the coconuts
Kokoso Baby uses only the finest organic coconuts from some of the oldest coconut trees in Thailand. They grow on our ethical, family-run, certified-organic farm and are extra special because they're unique to this region of Thailand. 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, ultra lightweight 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.
Created by a brainy professor
But perhaps the biggest differentiator is a special part of the cutting-edge, protected process used to make Kokoso Baby. This unique ultra cold extraction technique was invented by a university professor, and creates an oil that is physically lighter and thinner (or less dense) than others - so it absorbs beautifully into baby skin.
Chosen by a picky mum
The mum behind Kokoso also selected this coconut oil because she’s very picky! She rejected countless coconut oils from around the world before choosing this one. Not only did it tick all of the boxes above, but she also fell in love with its fresh mild coconutty fragrance and smooth, soft, creamy texture. In fact, we believe Kokoso is as close in fragrance to freshly cracked coconut as it comes - and we receive so many compliments on its beautiful natural aroma. Many of the others we tested had an overpowering, sickly-sweet smell like desiccated coconut, and felt greasy or gritty on our baby's skin. Just not good enough.
What’s more, we’ve chosen fit-for-purpose, lightweight packaging that is baby-safe, BPA-free and 100% recyclable. Most coconut oils come in heavy glass jam jars that we feel are potentially dangerous around inquisitive little hands.
Last but not least, Kokoso has been dermatologically tested and is proven to be suitable for sensitive skin, mild for skin, 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 in the world that can say all of this!
