The Kokoso Difference

Why Choose Kokoso Baby Coconut Oil?

What makes Kokoso the best coconut oil for your baby? In this blog post, we discuss why our multi award-winning organic baby coconut oil - specially selected for infant skincare - is the perfect choice for your little one. 

Premium quality 

Did you know that not all coconut oils are the same? Even if they're both ‘raw, virgin and organic’, there can be a vast difference between two different brands of coconut oil. It’s all down to the quality of the coconuts, the conditions in which they grow and the way the oil is made. All of these factors affect the fragrance, texture, skin-feel and 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 can be said for coconut oil! 

Cruelty free and ethically produced 

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, ethically made product that parents can trust is packed full of amazing nourishing nutrients, smells divine and absorbs better into baby’s delicate skin to work its soothing, nourishing magic. 

The secret’s in the coconuts

There are many different varieties of coconut and Kokoso Baby uses only the finest certified organic coconuts from some of the oldest coconut trees in Thailand. They grow on our sustainable, family-run farm and are extra special because their variety is unique to this region of Thailand.

Each coconut that makes it into a Kokoso pot is lovingly grown on the tree for around 12 months and then hand-harvested (by people, not monkeys!) before being individually checked and even smelt to identify any impurities. Only the freshest, purest coconut makes it in. The coconuts then go through a very gentle yet state-of-the-art process to make our raw, cold-pressed, virgin, ultra lightweight organic coconut oil.

Cold-pressed and triple-filtered

Kokoso uses a cold-pressed centrifugal process to make our coconut oil for babies, and of course it comes from the first press of the coconuts making it a virgin coconut oil. This means it retains all of its amazing natural nutrients.

Kokoso 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 supermarket brands of coconut oil. They often have to use chemicals and heat in the production process, but we don’t use any chemicals or heat to make Kokoso.  

Other brands leave their coconut fruit to dry out in the sunlight or over a fire, causing bacteria to fester which means the dried out coconut fruit (called copra) needs to be washed with chlorine. Because Kokoso's coconuts are always pressed within three hours of being opened, they are only ever cleaned using purified water, never chlorine. 

Created by a brainy professor

Perhaps the biggest differentiator for Kokoso is a special part of the cutting-edge, protected process used to make our coconut oil. This unique, ultra cold extraction technique was invented by a university professor, and creates a more lightweight oil (or less dense) – which means it absorbs beautifully into baby's skin without leaving them feeling greasy.

Chosen by a picky mum

The mum behind Kokoso also selected this coconut oil because she’s very picky (and don't we know it)! She rejected countless coconut oils from around the world before choosing Kokoso. Not only did it tick all of the boxes above, but she also fell in love with its fresh and mild scent combined with the amazing silky smooth texture of the oil.

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!

Baby-safe packaging

What’s more, we use fit-for-purpose, lightweight packaging that is baby-safe, BPA-free and 100% recyclable. Most coconut oils come in heavy glass jars that are potentially dangerous around inquisitive little hands.

Paediatrician approved

Last but not least, Kokoso has been dermatologically tested, paediatrician approved and is clinically 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! But don’t just take our word for it. Check out these amazing Kokoso reviews below…

“I’ve bought so many sorts of coconut oil but they are all so greasy in comparison to Kokoso Baby. It’s so lightweight and absorbs really quickly and feels completely different. When I first got it I had some leftover 100% organic virgin coconut oil but I couldn’t bare to use it as it felt so greasy and thick in comparison! Kokoso Baby is all I buy now for me and my babies.” - @xiloveslimmingworldx

“We are Kokoso Baby converts! I’ve always used a high quality coconut oil on Felix so didn’t think this would be any better. I was wrong! This stuff is so much nicer than anything we could get in a health food store, it’s almost buttery in texture and the smell is much more subtle and sweet than we’re used to. We love love love this product!” - Phoebe Thorpe

“I’ve tried several coconut oils before and Kokoso Baby is by far the nicest. It soaks in beautifully, has a mild but lovely coconutty smell and is now a daily part of my body care – and it’s not even meant for me!” - Charlotte Raines

“I use Kokoso on my face and it’s cleared a lot of my skin up, whereas I’ve found that regular coconut oils break it out. Absolutely love the stuff!” - @loveloveandcupcakes

“Big fans here… I’d tried coconut oil on my baby when he was newborn and really didn’t like it. However, this stuff is fantastic!” - Shireen Hand

“I literally couldn’t live without this stuff… I’ve tried other coconut oils. None of them come anywhere close to this.” - @keeleymakeup

“Wow. I am the biggest fan of coconut oil but I have never come across anything so light, soft and sweet-smelling. I know which brand I’m recommending now!” - @rachelcoco86

“I tried coconut oil as a beauty product once and hated everything about it!!!! THIS, however, I LOVE!!!! The fine texture that melts easily on contact and absorbs instantly into the skin and the beautiful light scent of fresh coconut is exquisite.” - Maria Bedford

Kokoso Baby is a premium quality raw virgin organic coconut oil specially selected for head-to-toe infant skincare. It hasn’t been refined, bleached, deodorised or tinkered with. We’ve simply left all of its amazing natural nutrients to do the important job of moisturising your little one’s skin.
