Just A Skosh Goes A Long Way With This Organic Coco Butter Brand

Skōsh means a little, or a tiny bit. So with SKOSH, a little goes a long way. This is exactly the mantra of a brand new organic body butter brand. Skosh was founded by a gentleman by the name of Kelly Scott who concocted a simple cocoa butter, mango butter, jojoba oil, argan oil, and beeswax mix combat a severe rash he had for two years.

Share the story of how you started Skosh? How bad was your rash and how did you come up with the perfect formula?

I’ve been making my own aftershave since 2008. In October of 2016, a buddy of mine asked, “why don’t I sell it?” I’ve been making it happen ever since.

Skin sensitivity is a huge thing in the skin care industry as so many convention brand use a myriad of chemical ... what's your thoughts on this? 

I came up with this particular formula because I developed a rash that covered most of my body including my face. The condition was so bad I couldn’t work a normal job so I had to resort to drive sharing at night. So people couldn't see and I didn’t have to explain my condition. Doctors were of little help. So over time I experimented with butters and oils. The ingredients in SKOSH were the only ingredients that absorbed well and did not worsen my condition. I took what I knew with the aftershave and applied it to make SKOSH.

Where do you source your ingredients?

My ingredients come from multiple sources that are certified usda organic and 100% natural. I don’t believe chemicals in skincare are the answer for most people for everyday use. There are people out there who may need to resort to such products, and if it works for them and makes life easy for them, because nothing else works, then great. However, I personally prefer the natural route. Because doctors and dermatologists in the past prescribed different versions of the same thing; bandaids to say the least, I was forced to look for natural alternatives, which also included scrutinizing every aspect of my lifestyle to find solutions. I did and still do and I am better off for it.

 

 

Does being a POC influence your brand? If so how? 

Me being a person of color is a matter for fact. So am really not sure how to answer the question when it comes to branding and it being an influence. Other than because I am, it automatically does.

What can we look forward to in the near future? 

There will be various products added to the site that reflect the sites name; SKOSHLIFE. But for now, SKOSH is a noun. I am making it a verb. Don’t believe me? Just watch. Ha!
