Our team had an opportunity to chat with SoCozy’s team and this is how the conversation went down.
92% of products in the baby aisle contain at-least 1 irritating ingredient, even those products that claim to be for sensitive skin. Was this part of the initial motivation to start the line and change standards of what’s considered “kid-friendly”?
“Our founder Cozy Friedman is all about identifying problems and solving them. From opening the first children’s hair salon in New York City twenty two years ago, to her bestselling book Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls’ Hair, to every single bottle of our shampoo, detangler, or styler – it all began with the same formula: listening, researching, committing to excellence, and creating something that makes being a parent just a little bit easier. She’s always seen the white space in the market and filled the need – so what started as an innovative idea for a kids salon has grown into a nationally-recognized SoCozy brand of salon-quality hair care products developed specifically for kids’ with clean formulas that work. Just like the rest of our products, Hush was born in the salon from a need from parents that Cozy was hearing about – sensitive skin and scalp. When the Hush collection was in it’s infancy, we conducted a survey of moms across the country and we learned that there was a large disconnect between the significant amount of moms who expected safe and gentle ingredients in the products they choose for their little ones and the huge number of products in the baby aisle that contain at least one irritating ingredient. That’s how Hush was born – this line of treatment-based products is designed to work together to not only help nurture, treat, and protect, but improve and maintain the optimal environment for healthy hair and scalp. Hush isn’t just a quick fix or temporary relief – it’s treating and preventing the symptoms of sensitive skin & scalp.”
Can adults use SoCozy products too?
“Absolutely – everyone at SoCozy headquarters has their favorites and our influencers have been known to dip into their kiddos SoCozy stash, like Real Housewives of New York Star Aviva Drescher.”
How important is Vitamin B5?
“Vitamin B5 is great for improving the look of hair and its overall health, but it’s especially great for irritated scalps because it a dose of much needed moisture to skin and scalp.
Another great ingredient for sensitive scalps is Defenscalp or Rose Bay Extract. This power packed ingredient is naturally derived from plants and clinically proven to reduce the appearance of flakes on the scalp quickly. It’s so great it won the Silver Award for Best Ingredient in 2016. It’s amazing for cradle cap – check out these before and after shots.”
What can we expect from SoCozy in the near future?
“We’re constantly conducting surveys to learn about what mom needs and what mom wants, so we make sure we’re solving the problems that are at the forefront of her day to day. We can’t reveal all the details just yet, but we can give you a hint – you won’t have to worry about so many wash days.”
