The holiday season has just begun, but with some cold temps lately it feels like winter is in full swing. Nice warm scarves, boots, sipping hot chocolate…..and dry skin!
For me personally, my hands are always the driest because of the constant dish washing and cleaning (oh mommy/wife life!). For my little one, she’s got dry skin on her back and torso. We both have sensitive skin, so finding an effective but sensitive skin friendly product isn’t as easy as one would think.
I’m always looking for something new to try, so when I heard from Angela, momprenuer behind Michigan based company called Coconut Essentials, I was thrilled. During Angela’s first pregnancy, she developed sensitive skin. She began using organic coconut oil and fell in love with it! After using it for various skin issues with her children, such as eczema and cradle cap, she decided to create a company that would help moms find a safe product with multiple purposes.
Her product Coconut Baby can be used for:
- Everyday moisturizer
- Dry skin
- Prevention of stretch marks
- Nipple moisturizer when breastfeeding
- Prevention of diaper rash
- Treatment of cradle cap
I’ve been using it as an everyday moisturizer for my 4 year old as well as a hand cream for myself. We love it!
What I absolutely love about Angela’s story is her answer to my question “Why did you start this business?”. Yes, she gave me the answer to what catapulted her into the business. But she didn’t stop there. Her reason “why” is so much more just a solution to skin ailments.
“I have 2 beautiful girls that I want to set an example for. I want them to see that their mother is a full time teacher with my Masters degree and I started my own successful business from the ground up. I am trying to raise 2 independent, strong, confident girls who can one day run my business or start their own.”
Way to go, Angela! Your girls will be so proud!
