Just why is coconut oil so amazing for skin?
Coconut oil is brilliant because it can do different things at once. It’s packed with teeny tiny fatty acids that easily penetrate both the skin and hair to provide a deeper level of nourishment and hydration. Simultaneously, it helps calm blemishes, reduce inflammation and keeps skin looking clear and radiant. Oh, and it doesn't contain any hidden nasty chemicals either. It's just Mother Nature doing what she does best!
How can coconut oil benefit your skin?
Coconut oil is a natural moisturiser that can hydrate even the driest of skin and soothe rashes, spots and inflammation thanks to its natural antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Say goodbye to rough, flaky, irritated skin patches and hello to a smooth and supple complexion!
It's solid! How do I actually use it?
Simply scoop out a small amount and warm the coconut oil in your hands. Then massage it into your skin wherever needed. If using coconut oil as a makeup remover, gently rub it over your eye lids, face and neck, just as you would with any other facial cleanser. Then use a soft wet cloth to wipe off the oil and makeup - leaving your skin feeling clean, supple and beautifully hydrated.
How can coconut oil be used for hair care?
Coconut oil can be used as a pre-shampoo treatment to nourish and condition the hair. Apply a generous amount of coconut oil to your hair, focusing on the ends. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for a more intensive treatment, before shampooing and conditioning as usual. We recommend using two shampoos to ensure all of the coconut oil is washed out. Try this once a week to help keep hair strong and healthy!
How can I use coconut oil for my curly hair?
Coconut oil can be used as a leave-in conditioner to tame frizz and add shine to your curls. Take a small amount of Kokoso and rub it between your palms to warm it up. Then, apply it to the ends of your hair, avoiding the roots. Style your hair as desired, and enjoy the benefits of smooth, shiny locks.
How does coconut oil benefit the scalp?
Coconut oil is a true scalp hero. If you're dealing with a dry scalp or dandruff, coconut oil can come to the rescue once again. Massage a little bit of coconut oil onto your scalp to soothe irritation and moisturise your skin. Leave it on overnight to let the oil work its natural magic, then wash it out with two shampoos the next day.
Can I use coconut oil if I’m pregnant?
If you want to reduce your use of chemicals and potentially harmful products during pregnancy, Kokoso could be your new best friend. It can be used as a natural bump oil to soften skin and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Use it everywhere, in fact - from sore backs to tired legs to aching feet. It can even be used as a natural deodorant during pregnancy thanks to its amazing bacteria-fighting properties. Plus there’s no better way to try out Kokoso before baby arrives!
