We have built up many strong relationships and we are proud to work alongside and be associated with all our current Licensor Partners.
We believe that innovation, design, and quality are the best foundation for our business in order to deliver products that are safe and fun to use, whilst also representing value for money to the consumer. We work closely with world leading test houses to ensure that our products are tested to the most rigorous safety standards.
We have been making millions of bath time memories by creating fun, high quality products which parents trust. Our line up of popular brands in Pre-school, Boys, Girls, Teen and Adult lines offer a wide selection of choice to the discerning consumer.
Kokomo’s range of licensed toiletries are available from all major retailers.
Kokomo is passionate about creating innovative, high quality products. We work with the best Licenses and we ensure that our products are independently tested and approved to the highest quality, meeting all European Cosmetic Safety Standards.
We use two of the world’s most respected consumer product testing companies, Intertek (ITS) and SGS Ltd. We have pro-actively removed all Parabens and MI preservatives from our product ranges. We have removed SLS from our Shampoo products. We do not use Micro-plastics within our liquid products. Our fragrances are supplied by one of the top European Fragrance houses and where possible we try to use allergen free fragrance or limit any allergens to a minimum level whilst still achieving beautiful unique aromas.
Kokomo are a market leader in the UK health and beauty market, supplying globally recognised entertainment and branded licensed products to all of the UK’s best known retailers.
We take our responsibility as a supplier of health and beauty products extremely seriously and are at the forefront of ethical sourcing in both the UK and around the world. Our factories are ethically and technically audited and accredited by globally recognised testing houses to comply with the most rigorous of standards.
We have a team of individuals based both in the UK and Hong Kong, who are managed by our Head of Compliance who’s focus is to maintain the integrity of our supply chain.

Kokomo are fully committed to managing how our products impact on the environment and supporting the wider needs of society. We acknowledge that we have a responsibility in making sustainable palm oil the norm and as our commitment to responsible sourcing of all palm oil ingredients, we aim to have a 100% fully segregated supply by 2020.
All our products are clearly labelled with recycling instructions. We have over the last five years proactively reduced non-recycled plastics in favour of PET in our bottles and non-PVC plastics in our packaging. Our endeavour is to reduce our packaging waste in all products.
Testing cosmetics on animals is a cruel, outdated and unnecessary practice. None of Kokomo’s products are tested on animals. We only order our raw material from reputable suppliers.
Kokomo have banned glitter from all product and will not include any plastic based glitter in any of its product or packaging.
All Mica’s will be naturally derived and contain no plastics.
We can give assurance that our cartons and card packaging are made with or contains wood that comes from FSC certified forest or from post- consumer waste. So many things in our lives come from forests. FSC helps take care of forest and people and wildlife who call them home.
Charity Partnership with Footsteps Foundation
Kokomo are proud to partner and support a worthy UK based Childrens’ Charity – Footsteps Foundation. The Charity was set up in 2004, by founder Pip Hoyer-Millar, in her plight to find the best possible care for her daughter who suffers from Cerebral Palsy. During her investigations she discovered the innovative “Spider” therapy.
Spider therapy assists children to carry out exercises to help strengthen their inner core muscles, leading to improvements in their physical, cognitive and developmental capabilities. The results that Footsteps have achieved are remarkable and we felt that this is such a invaluable cause we wanted to give them as much support as possible.
The charity ensures that those on lower incomes are able to access the therapy within the Footsteps Centre based in Dorchester-on-Thames. They are currently working with around 200 children per year, with families travelling from all parts of the UK. The charity funds 70% of all the families attending the Footsteps Foundation.
Along with yearly donations, we also support various charity events to raise money. The charity has provided hope and companionship to many families and we are honoured to be associated with such a worthwhile cause.
