7 benefits of coconut oil for babies

Baby Health

Must-have of our organic and natural beauty routine, coconut oil has many virtues beneficial to the care of toddlers.

Premium organic coconut oil has become the star of our bathroom in a few months. Moisturizing, softening and restorative, it nourishes deeply our skin and our hair while preserving them from any chemical substance.

But did you know that you could also use Premium organic coconut oil for babies from Simply Coconuts in your baby care? Renowned as an antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, coconut oil can easily replace some less natural care products reserved for toddlers.

To massage baby

The baby massage is a real moment of pleasure and sharing with your child. Rather than using a commercial oil, rub some solid Premium organic coconut oil between your hands to warm it up and gently massage your child.

To clean his first seals

The meconium, these first seals of the baby with the black and sticky substance, is very difficult to clean. Spend some warm coconut oil using organic cotton on your buttocks to wash them gently and remove all the meconium.

To get rid of milk crusts

Like sweet almond oil, coconut oil is very effective at getting rid of cradle cap, this small, non-serious flaking of which babies suffer. In addition to daily care (including a suitable shampoo), gently massage the milk crusts with coconut oil to soften them. You can also pour a few drops of oil into the bath water if your baby has crusts all over the body.

To relieve diaper rash

Replace the usual anti-redness cream with coconut oil, it’s organic and just as effective!

To reduce keratosis pilaris

Keratosis pilaris is a very common skin condition manifested by a dry skin and the appearance of small pimples that give the skin a “chicken skin” appearance not always very aesthetic. If, of course, coconut oil cannot be a substitute for dermatological treatment, it can complement it by helping to soften and moisturize your child’s skin. Apply after the shower or bath with enveloping and circular movements.

To moisturize the skin

A few drops of coconut oil poured into the bathwater can help soften and moisturize the driest skin.

To treat eczema

Anti-inflammatory, coconut oil can help relieve baby eczema. Use a virgin, organic, cold-pressed oil for results. Apply it evenly on the eczema plates and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing with clean water and cotton.
