"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 invite you to this discover what makes this platform unique here.
I am a skincare entrepreneur, instructor and also the founder of Okoko Cosmétiques. I founded my brand back in 2016 and it was my first business and first launch that was self-funded. Through hard work, determination and drive, I built and grew a skincare business that was launched 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.
Okoko Cosmétiques growth as a niche luxury skincare brand leads me to believe that everything is possible. Moreover, being directly involved in, and responsible for, every aspect of my business has given me a wealth of experiences to draw upon: intensive research on ingredients and clinical trials, formulating from scratch, the manufacturing process as a maker as well as a formulator (e.g., craftmanship, production, techniques, creating systems), navigating wholesale agreements, connecting with stockists, handling contracts, customer service, marketing, international commerce and more. Having been the driving force behind every aspect of my brand, I understand beauty entrepreneurship from many facets.
Currently, I am studying to become a cosmetic chemist while running my business and empowering others the best that I can.
Are you stressing about skincare entrepreneurship?
You are not alone. I have been in your shoes and understand the challenges. With all my hands-on experience as a passionate cosmetic formulator, maker, and founder of an internationally known, skincare business, with a loyal customer base, I want to give back and help others achieve their dreams. I believe I can help motivated skincare entrepreneurs launch competitive brands and get ahead with their business.
