Why we’re obsessed with this skin-friendly hand wash
Cocomo’s range of natural products will pamper your kid’s skin and keep them safe too
Over an evening call, my pregnant cousin was stressing about her firstborn’s upcoming 5th birthday party and how some news reports her in-laws sent her listed out the many reasons she should stop using a microwave for the sake of her children’s health.
“Right now I need things to make my life easier, not more complicated,” she said, already tense about the recurring flare-ups of eczema on her son’s arms and hands.
Every third news article thrown your way claims to have found something else that can harm the planet and make our children sprout a second nose. The climate crisis, toxins leaching into our water supply and the possibility of everyday essentials causing harm to our bodies and the environment.
This information overload also means that we’re more aware now than ever before about the do’s and don’ts when it comes to taking care of our children. We’re taking more preventive measures to safeguard our health with washing and sanitising, but they haven’t been the kindest to our skin. And children’s skin especially, which some studies show isn’t as resilient and developed as adults, making them more susceptible to cosmetics and environmental factors.
It’s a concern that Rashmi Jalan shared after becoming a mom herself. That inspired her to create Cocomo by House of Nature, a line of natural and safe personal care products.

Cocomo’s range harnesses the power of natural ingredients and the traditional wisdom of its country of origin, India, to formulate clinically-tested hair and body products. Free of sulphates and parabens, they are dermatologist-approved and cruelty-free.
Replace your store-bought soap for their hand wash which is specially created keeping in mind the conditions of children’s skin. It’s a rich, gel-based formula, 100% safe with a blend of naturally soothing tea tree and spearmint oil. Safe for use for your entire family, from your 4-year-old niece to 99-year-old nani.
Cocomo is also joining our collective fight in this pandemic. For each hand wash bottle we purchase, they will be donating a bottle to various NGOs. New Childrens Home & Additional Childrens Home, Mumbai is one such initiative that takes care of the rehabilitation of orphans or broken home children aged 3-12 years. Seams For Dreams, Mumbai is another not-for-profit organization that works to provide eco-friendly, daily hygiene and wellness products to the needy.
So, instead of letting hygiene and sanitising turn into a scary sounding chore, make it a fun practice with Cocomo while also letting your purchase pay it forward.
