What do skin cream, lip balm, makeup remover, and baking oil all have in common? 100% fair-trade and plant-based coconut oil. Bisococo produces a range of organic plant-based skincare products. All products are 100% natural and toxin-free. We spoke to founder Jessica Johansson about the benefits of coconut oil.
Paterson Hi Jessica. Why did you start Bisococo?
I discovered coconut oil when I was living in New York a few years back. It is such a versatile ingredient that can replace most of your everyday skincare products. No more of my bag filled with cremes. However, the only thing that did not really work was the big glass jar that coconut oil usually comes in. As a result, I started to buy empty tubes and fill them with oil for convenience.

Haha, well kind of! As an Art Director, I love package design. Therefore, giving the tubes a cute label came naturally to me. People started noticing, thinking it was an already established brand! As a result, Bisococo was born.
