Lotion, balm or oil? When to use them and which is best for your baby.
Here at Kokoso Baby, each of our three skincare heroes is award-winning and each suitable from newborn upwards, including little ones with sensitive and eczema-prone skin. But when it comes to using our lotion, balm and coconut oil, which product is best for your baby and when is it best to apply them?
Here's our guide to these three best-selling products...
Coconut Oil Baby Lotion
Description: A luxurious yet lightweight lotion made with organic coconut oil, sweet almond oil and naturally active plant sugars.
What is a natural active? Naturally active ingredients are derived from nature and proven to benefit or improve the condition of the skin in some way. The plant sugars contained in our Kokoso Baby lotion actively strengthen and support the skin's barrier function, enabling it to lock in more moisture than a regular baby lotion, leaving skin feeling softer and looking healthier.
Uses: Apply daily straight after bathing baby or whenever skin feels dry or dehydrated.
Tips: Use on its own or if skin is feeling dry, layer over Kokoso Baby Coconut Oil for a double dose of soothing hydration.
Hacks: Named Best Buy in The Independent’s ‘Top 10 Organic Baby Products You’ll Want to Steal For Yourself’, our Coconut Oil Baby Lotion is just as delicious on your own skin as it is on your baby's. It also works wonders as a hand cream!
Eco credentials: 99% naturally derived, vegan-friendly, 30-100% post-consumer recycled and recyclable packaging.
Baby-Soft Balm Stick
Description: A nutrient-rich organic balm made from coconut and olive oils, shea butter, beeswax and carnauba wax. Creates a soothing, protective barrier against irritants and the elements.
Uses: Truly multi-purpose. Ideal for dribble rash but also helps to soothe dry, chapped or irritated skin anywhere on the face, hands or body. A winter skincare must-have!
Tips: Keep it in your pocket or changing bag to quickly glide over skin on-the-go. Can be applied over our coconut oil or lotion to seal in moisture and form a protective barrier.
Hacks: This nourishing, softening balm will soon become your favourite lip balm!
Eco-credentials: 100% natural, certified organic by ECOCERT, recyclable cardboard tube.
Premium Organic Coconut Oil
Description: A feather light, premium quality, certified-organic coconut oil that sinks in quickly and nourishes deeply.
Uses: From flaky scalps to dry feet, the parent-saving uses are practically endless. It's ideal for everyday use as a regular moisturiser but can also be used as a topical ointment for rashes, baby acne and skin irritations.
Tips: The secret weapon in baby's changing caddy, our coconut oil can be used as a daily nappy balm to help keep little bottoms coco-fresh and rash-free.
Hacks: Make-up remover, overnight hair mask, pregnancy tummy and breast balm, natural deodorant, nighttime eye cream, hand and nail treatment, soothing post-shave leg oil... this multi-tasking wonder oil is definitely not just for babies.
Eco-credentials: Recyclable BPA-free tub, zero-waste coconuts grown using ethical and sustainable farming methods, certified organic by Bioagricert, vegan-friendly.
