Benefits of coconut oil
Here at Kokoso Baby, we understand that coconut oil is the purest, gentlest and most natural way of caring for your baby’s skin. As well as having a multitude of uses, this 100% natural wonder oil is packed with essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants that are highly beneficial for baby skincare.
What makes coconut oil so special?
The unique composition of coconut oil is what makes it such a special oil for your baby's skin. As well as being 100% organic with no hidden nasties, Kokoso Baby Coconut Oil contains a unique combination of medium-chain fatty acids, including more than 50% lauric acid – a magical healing agent also found in breast milk. Lauric acid is an antimicrobial that can help promote skin healing and soothe common skin concerns such as rashes and baby acne.
What's more, the special fatty acids in coconut oil are made up of teeny, easily absorbable molecules that are perfect for sinking deep into your baby’s skin to comfort, hydrate and leave them feeling beautifully baby-soft.
It's also rich in vitamin E, known for its ability to nourish and protect the skin. Oh, and it smell totally tropically divine!
Moisturises and hydrates the skin
If you're looking for a natural moisturiser for baby, one of the key benefits of coconut oil is its ability to moisturise and hydrate the skin. The fatty acids in coconut oil help to lock in moisture, keeping skin smooth, soft and supple. It's especially beneficial if your baby has dry skin or sensitive skin, as it provides deep hydration whilst being incredibly gentle and natural.
Reduces inflammation and soothes irritated skin
If you or your little one have skin conditions such as baby eczema, coconut oil can be a game-changer. Its anti-inflammatory properties can help reduce redness, itchy skin and irritation. Applying coconut oil to the affected areas can provide relief and help you to manage symptoms naturally. However, it's important to note that what works for one person may not work for another, as everyone's skin is different. Rest assured that Kokoso Baby Coconut Oil is dermatologically tested and clinically approved as a natural moisturiser for eczema-prone skin.
Of course there are plenty of benefits of coconut oil for you too. Did you know it's a natural anti-aging powerhouse? It contains antioxidants that can help protect the skin from free radicals, which are known to accelerate the aging process. Regular use of coconut oil can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helping us tired mums to achieve that much sought after skin glow. You can thank us later!
Makeup remover and cleanser
Why spend money on expensive makeup removers and cleansers when you can use Kokoso? Yes that's right mama, it's a really effective way of removing makeup, dirt and impurities from your skin. Simply massage a small amount of coconut oil into your face and gently wipe away the day's grime with a damp cloth. Trust us, your skin will be left feeling soft, clean and naturally refreshed.
