Why our premium organic coconut oil is so good for baby skin

I have a lot of faith in the power of coconut oil to nourish, moisturise and protect my babies. So much so that I’ve taken the very un-me step into the scary world of business to start up Kokoso Baby, providing you with the highest quality raw organic coconut oil to care for your little one's skin. A product you can really trust is the best. 

But what exactly is it about coconut oil that has me all a flutter? And why is it so important to ditch the potentially harmful chemicals and synthetic fragrances in some baby toiletries and choose Kokoso Baby instead?

Independent dermatology nurse, Julie Van Onselen, says that coconut oil is the only natural oil that she would happily recommend to use on baby skin. 

The right kind of coconut oil for infant skincare

Kokoso Baby is the premium quality fresh-pressed organic coconut oil specially selected for head-to-toe infant skincare.

Our award-winning 100% natural baby oil is extracted from the fruit of fresh mature coconuts within three hours of being opened, without using high temperatures or chemicals. Many coconut oils are made in a way that strips them of their goodness, but Kokoso Baby is one of the most respected and trusted varieties of raw virgin organic coconut oil in the world. We tested countless coconut oils on our quest to find the perfect one for your baby - and didn't settle until we'd found the best.

Kokoso is produced in small batches using the finest organic coconuts grown on our ethical family-run farm. They use a unique state-of-the-art process designed be a university professor which makes Kokoso Baby ultra lightweight so all of those amazing skin-loving nutrients absorb better into delicate skin. 

Nourish your baby's skin naturally

Kokoso Baby contains moisturising fatty acids, nourishing vitamin E and natural skin-conditioning properties. So as well as being a wonderful all-natural moisturiser for baby skin, it can work wonders as a silky soft bottom balm and it’s non-greasy, effortless glide makes it perfect for baby massage too.

The fatty acids in Kokoso are lauric acid, caprylic acid and capric acid. These are medium-chain fatty acids, which means they’re made up of teeny, easily absorbable molecules – perfect for sinking deep into your baby's skin to moisturise and leave them feeling baby-soft.     

Lauric acid is the one we should really bow down to. It makes up more than 50% of our coconut oil and really is remarkable stuff. Breast milk is the only other natural source that contains such a high concentration of lauric acid.

Completely coconutty. Completely chemical-free.

What's more, because it's 100% pure coconut oil and absolutely nothing else, Kokoso isn't pumped full of water, parabens, perfumes and petroleum by-products like many conventional baby toiletries can be. Instead, our special baby-safe recyclable packaging contain only the concentrated natural goodness of three premium organic coconuts (1.5 in our smaller pots) that are unique to the region they grow in. Which we like to think makes our coconut oil even more special.

We believe using a completely natural, organic, premium and pure product like Kokoso Baby is so important because baby skin is 20-30% thinner than our own, and the moisturisers and baby oils we choose to put on their skin are absorbed. As parents we want to nourish and protect our littles ones. For me, it's scary to wonder what potential long-term damage some skincare products might be causing.

We do hope you love using Kokoso, and in so many different ways. We'd love to hear what you and your bubba think.

Enjoy. x
