A PROFITABLE NATURAL SKINCARE BUSINESS

Okoko Academy

Are you a skincare formulator, herbalist, esthetician or skincare entrepreneur looking to build and grow a successful (product based) beauty business?

Okoko Academy provides indie skincare business mentoring and helpful information to motivated entrepreneurs who want to get ahead with their business. It was born through a real passion to inspire, collaborate and empower others. This platform will serve as a “guide” for entrepreneurs because we know how difficult it can sometimes be in your skincare business. Our goal is to help you to minimize frustrations, to decrease the stress of running your business, and to follow your passion and achieve your dreams.

WORK WITH US

One-on-one coaching and consulting. My strengths are product formulation/development, branding strategy and marketing. After launching and growing my own brand from scratch, I now offer private coaching & consulting for skincare entrepreneurs who need a little bit of extra help to recognize and jump hurdles and break down common barriers in their business!

HOW TO WORK WITH STOCKISTS

This exclusive course will teach you what you need to know to attract good retailers and increase your product sales. You will learn how to get bigger, repeat orders from your stockists and more cashflow into your business and how to confidently communicate your product value to consumers and potential stockists.

LAUNCH. BUILD. GROW Podcast

In this podcast, I share interviews with beauty founders and skincare entrepreneurs to where we discuss their experience launching, running and growing their brands to provide insights into the beauty industry and collaborative support on this journey.

Hello,

I am Oyéta. A researcher at heart, creative, resilient and a go-getter. I am passionate about product development, quality and designing exciting green luxury products for my discerning clients. I help natural skincare formulators launch competitive brands and get ahead with their business.

I am a skincare entrepreneur, instructor and also the founder of Okoko Cosmétiques. I founded my brand back in 2016; it was my first business and first self-funded launch. Through hard work, determination and drive, I built and grew a skincare business with stockists in many countries leading to half a million total revenue (in less than 3 years) with thousands of products sold world-wide and partnerships with exclusive retailers.

My own experience building a brand from scratch (and its challenges) taught me a lot of valuable lessons from manufacturing and creating systems to practical formulation, marketing, how to work with stockists and product release, etc.

In my podcast, I share interviews with beauty founders and skincare entrepreneurs to where we discuss their experience launching, running and growing their brands to provide insights into the beauty industry and collaborative support on this journey. My other platform, the Connector, provides information for natural cosmetics consumers, support for small indie businesses and aims to facilitate networking. I believe in collaboration, building relationships and empowering others.

Oyéta is truly a beautiful soul inside and out.

"She is so generous with her knowledge which is extensive. She brings support and expertise and instinctively says what you need to hear. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to expand their business in a meaningful way"

- Kim Parenteau, Founder, Wild Grace
