We recently teamed up with our friends at Kokoso, the natural infant skincare brand. Founder, Lauren, discovered the wonders of raw virgin organic coconut oil and quickly became obsessed with its countless benefits and uses, especially when it comes to skincare and babies. Lauren found that it magically cleared up her baby’s troublesome skin complaints and even inspired her to start a business, in order to share the wonders of coconut oil with other mums, dads and little ones. It’s also completely natural, with none of the nasty chemicals or perfumes that are often found in traditional baby products. Coconut is the hero ingredient across all of Kokoso’s skincare products, leaving babies’ skin and hair beautifully soft and naturally nourished at all times.
Babease and Kokoso share a passion for this tropical ingredient. We even put it in our baby food. It provides little ones with a wonderful source of vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, and most importantly, flavour!
5 fun facts about coconuts:
1. Not all coconut oils are the same. It’s all down to the quality of the coconuts and the process used to make the oil. When it comes to your baby’s skin, it’s important to choose a high quality, lightweight raw virgin organic coconut oil like Kokoso Baby.
2. Coconut oil turns to a liquid at temperatures above 24°C. At room temperature it's a solid pure white oil that melts to a liquid in the warmth of your hands, ready to apply to your baby's skin. It’s the mark of a truly natural product!
3. Coconut oil is the perfect natural emollient for baby skin, but has a multitude of other uses too. Try it for baby massage, sensitive and eczema-prone skin, as a soothing bottom balm or whenever skin needs some nourishing TLC.
4. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, a natural healing agent also found in breast milk. Scientists believe its presence explains the decrease of infection rate in breast-fed babies.
5. Coconut oil has natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which is why it can work wonders for calming and comforting sore, sensitive or irritated skin.
