There is nothing safer for baby's skin than virgin coconut oil. It is completely pure and natural since it is made with coconut as the sole ingredient. Whether baby's skin is dry or perfectly soft, coconut oil can be used to make sure it is always at its healthiest.
A Safe, Gentle Oil For Skin
Coconut oil has many benefits for baby's skin. It contains lauric acid, a substance found in breast milk, as well as antioxidants and other nutrients. In addition to being completely safe and a great moisturizer for dry skin, it also nourishes skin to help heal diaper rash and other baby skin problems.
This gentle oil is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal. This means it will protect cuts and scrapes from getting infected as well as heal them faster and fade any existing scars.
Coconut oil works on baby's skin because it helps skin cells mature and dead skin shed away. It creates the optimum environment for skin cells so that skin conditions are prevented and healed. Even more serious skin problems like psoriasis and excema can be helped by the regular use of coconut oil (consult your pediatrician about ongoing skin problems).
The tropical oil is an effective treatment for cradle cap, a common infant skin problem that causes dry, flaky patches on the scalp. It can also help kill the yeast that causes thrush and candida, which are problems for many nursing moms and babies. Since it is natural and chemical-free, coconut oil can be put inside baby's mouth without concern. Ingesting the oil is healthy for moms and babies, and applying it to mom's nipples can handle these problems on both sides safely at once.
Coconut oil works well for use in baby massage, a growing practice that can soothe cranky babies and improve everything from colic to digestive problems. Vastly superior to commercial massage oils, coconut oil has a naturally pleasing scent and texture.
Baby massage can be done daily or several times a week. It should be done when baby is calm, not upset. Gently rubbing small amounts of coconut oil into baby's skin can be a relaxing time for both baby and parent.
Biconi's Baby Massage Oil with virgin coconut oil is a 100% natural way to soothe baby's skin and protect it from rashes, infections and even dryness. It contains no added chemicals, no alcohol, and no animal products of any kind. This product can be safely used on cuts and scrapes, bug bites, and dry, irritated skin. It is also effective in protecting normal skin from rashes and other skin problems. Coconut oil solidifies at around 75 degrees, so if your room temperature is lower, just put your Baby Massage Oil in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes or rub between your fingers to liquify. Exposure to warmth does not harm the oil. Always test any product applied to baby's skin to make sure it is a safe and comfortable temperature before applying.
