Where can I buy Kobi products?
Our products are currently available online in the Kobi Store and on Amazon. We may consider stocking them in physical retail stores in the future!
Where are your products made?
Our products are made in small batches by our team at our facility in Chicago, IL. Making the products ourselves helps us ensure the best possible quality for our customers.
What ingredients do you use?
We focus on using natural, non-toxic, and safe ingredients in all of our products. Please visit our Ingredients page to see the full list, as well as the purpose of each.
Are your products organic?
The short answer: Our products are made with some organic ingredients, but are not 100% organic.

The long answer: Some of the ingredients we use are certified organic (e.g., our gums and essential oils). Others are 100% pure and either food-grade or cosmetic-grade (e.g., our zinc oxide and kaolin clay). Others are minimally-processed natural extractions (e.g., our witch hazel). All ingredients, however, are high-quality, naturally-derived, and 100% kid-safe!

My child has an allergy — can they use your products?
Most likely yes! In addition to keeping all the nasty artificial stuff out of our products, we also go the extra mile to make them as allergy-friendly as possible. Our products are free of all the most common allergens:

Sesame, peanut, gluten, dairy, egg, talc, soy, nut oils, silicone, and artificial fragrances.

However, people can be allergic to a wide variety of things. Please double-check our full ingredient lists to make sure your child doesn’t have a known allergy to any of the ingredients before using.

Is your packaging recyclable?
Yes, our product packaging is FDA compliant, BPA-free, and 100% recyclable.
Are your products travel-safe?
Yes, all of our products are housed in sturdy packaging with secure caps that won’t pop off and make a mess in bags. Our deodorant is 3 fl. oz. (89 mL), so it’s the perfect carry-on size and meets all TSA requirements. Our Fresh Foot Spray and Gear Therapy Spray, however, are slightly larger at 4 fl. oz. (118 mL) each, so when flying they would need to be packed in checked luggage or transferred to a smaller container for carry-on.
Can I place a bulk order for our sports team?
Yes! Please contact us to share your needs and inquire about bulk availability.
Do you plan to release more products?
Yes! We’re constantly working to develop other top-quality, natural personal care options for your kids and teens. Sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page and be among the first to know when new products launch!

Body Care

What ages can use your body care products?
Kobi products are designed for super-sensitive skin, so they’re perfect for kids of all ages. We’ve had customers as young as five, and there are also plenty of high-schoolers using our products. They’re even great for adults who have sensitive skin and don’t get along with the irritating baking soda that’s so prevalent in natural body care products for grown-ups!
How long do your scents last?
To keep our products safe and natural, we lightly scent them with just a very small amount of essential oil which does evaporate and fade after a short period of time (roughly one hour). Therefore, the scent won’t linger all day like synthetic fragrances might, and our products shouldn’t be viewed as a form of perfume. But even though the scent won’t last all day, the odor-fighting protection will!
What color is the deodorant?
Our roll-on deodorant has a light beige, milky appearance but goes on completely clear. No unsightly white clumps or marks!
Does your deodorant stain shirts?
No! Unlike many stick deodorants, our liquid roll-on won’t leave white streaks on your clothes after getting dressed. It also won’t cause permanent yellow stains on undershirts or other clothing items. This phenomenon occurs due to the high oil and wax content of stick deodorants — our water-based formula contains only a very tiny amount of oil (for scent).
Does your deodorant stop sweating, too?
In addition to fighting armpit odor, Kobi Sport Deodorant may also help reduce armpit moisture. However, it won’t stop it completely (the dangerous aluminum in non-natural antiperspirants is what blocks the sweat). Some sweat is actually a good thing, as this is a natural way for the body to get rid of toxins. Most importantly though, even if your child still sweats they won’t smell. Your nose will be safe!
How long does the odor protection last?
Typically all day, depending somewhat on the level and duration of physical activity. If reapplying during the day, skin should be cleaned first.
How long does one deodorant bottle last?
With daily use, one bottle will typically last at least 2-3 months. We’ve found this to be twice as long as some of the other kids’ deodorant brands!
How much deodorant should my child use?
Just a few rolls per armpit is enough. We recommend they rub their arms against their body a few times (as if running) to help spread the deodorant, then letting it dry for a few minutes before getting dressed.
Why do you use preservatives?
Preservatives sometimes get a bad rap, but they’re an essential component of skincare products to maintain shelf life and keep consumers safe. Why? Without them, products such as lotions, face washes, and deodorants can become breeding grounds for bacteria. Your deodorant, for example, is constantly coming into contact with your armpits where bacteria like to live, and some of that bacteria gets transferred back to the bottle. Without a preservative to protect the product against this bacteria as well as mold, things can get ugly pretty quickly!

In short, when it comes to personal care products, preservatives = safety. But, of course, there are good and bad preservatives. We steer clear of the scary stuff (like parabens) and use just a small amount of two naturally-derived preservatives that are both mild and non-carcinogenic.

Be very careful with liquid or cream-based natural personal care products that claim to be “preservative free.” They’ll need to be used up or discarded within about a week.

Do you make a stick deodorant, too?
At the moment we do not. Why? Because if they’re left in a warm car, backpack, or locker, natural stick deodorants can melt and turn into a goopy mess! Or if left in a cold environment they can become too hard and difficult to apply. So, they don’t work too well with the active lifestyles that most kids lead nowadays. Plus, making them requires using a lot of oil which results in unsightly yellow stains on clothes. Our liquid roll-on is really the best, safest, and most portable deodorant format for kids and teens to use.
What format is your face wash?
Our Super Gentle Face Wash is liquid in the bottle and then pumps out as a rich, fluffy foam. This instant lather makes our face wash not only easier for kids to use but more fun, too!
Is your face wash good for acne?
With daily use, our Super Gentle Face Wash will help minimize breakouts by removing excess oil and smoothing out minor bumps and blemishes. However, it is not a full-strength acne wash. For help with moderate to severe acne, we recommend consulting a dermatologist.
Is your shampoo/body wash okay for sensitive skin?
Yes, we’ve designed our Super Gentle Shampoo + Body Wash to be suitable even for extra-sensitive skin, with no dyes, artificial fragrance, or harsh soaps. As always, be sure to check the ingredient list though just to make sure your child doesn’t have a known allergy to any of the ingredients.
