Testing the Kokoso Baby Coconut Oil

Mum Ashleigh was a big fan of Kokoso: "Wow - loved this product. The smell is just gorgeous and I loved that the ingredient is purely coconut oil. A little goes a really long way which makes it good value for money. The oil didn't feel greasy or oily which I was worried about. My newborn had some dry patches of skin on her face and this cleared it up almost immediately. It makes for a really nice massage oil too which I used to try to ease my little one’s colic. This product really has so many uses. I love that this one product can be used for so many things - by the whole family!

Tester Amy commented: "I would recommend it to mums for both themselves and their babies - it is natural and organic, therefore is safe for baby skin and has a multitude of different uses so is a fairly good price for the size of tub. The packaging is nice and simple, and the wide-necked jar makes it easy to use. This product is very useful, coconut oil can be used for so many things, general moisturiser, helping to get rid of cradle cap, dry skin patches, cleansing bums, massage - and this is raw, 100% organic oil with no additives so you can be sure this is absolutely safe for use on babies, and a lovely natural product for use on us mums. Open the jar, rub your fingers on a bit and away you go!"

Emily was another lover of the brand. "This balm is AMAZING! It’s a solid mass which turns to liquid when your fingers touch it.  It’s easy to apply, smells very faintly of coconut (not a massed produce smell either, it smells natural), it has no hidden nasties.  Because it’s in solid form in the pot it means you don’t get it in the lid if it tumbles around in your bag so there’s no mess.  It’s a fantastic product for doing baby massage with also.  Because you only need a little bit, and there’s no risk of you scooping out too much it will last a long time."

"Because it’s in solid form in the pot it doesn’t spill out into the lid when upturned, which means it’s not messy.  You also only need a very small amount, and there’s no risk of you scooping out too much in one go.  I simply LOVE this product!  It smells great, feels fabulous, and leaves baby’s skin feeling all silky.  I’m not keen on the price, but because you only need so little and there’s no chance of you scooping out too much owing to its solid form it works out to be relatively cost-effective."

Final thoughts

Mum Amy said "There isn't much that could be changed really, the branding is suitably 'baby' and the product is clear - however, for anyone who is not so aware of the benefits of pure coconut oil, perhaps more could be made of the direction to the website for various uses. Also, I am not sure about the line 'coconut oil for baby-soft babies' it sounds odd, babies are generally pretty soft anyway so I don't think this adds anything."

Lianne added: " I am unsure about the hygiene associated with this product as you have to scoop it out with your fingers so anything on your hands will then be deposited into the pot - maybe a scoop attached to the pot would work to scoop it into your hands for melting."
