Our Founder.

Having had sensitive skin, psoriasis & eczema from a young age, our head scientist & founder ‘Kokoa' always struggled to find suitable products to take care of her skin. Existing products were either overloaded with chemicals - flaring up her skin sensitivity, or were completely ineffective in aiding the health of her skin longterm. Her father returned from a trip to her homeland Ghana, with Traditional African Black Soap and 100% Shea butter to help her skin.  

The results were unbelievable! Her eczema & psoriasis were calmed, eczema scarring drastically reduced within just 3 weeks, and acne was a thing of the past! Using her Biomedical Science studies from Kings College London, she studied and explored the world of natural beauty to understand why these products were so effective - researching, mixing, testing and began to formulate her own natural products. She has not had a flare up of eczema or psoriasis since 2016.

Kokoa Eco Beauty was born!

THE KOKOA WAY

We create effective products by using science as our foundation, and nature as our solution.

But what does this mean?

Let us present one example...

Science maps the powerful effects of RETINOL on the skin proving; it improves collagen production, aids against hyperpigmentation, reduces scarring, and has anti-ageing properties. A natural alternative to retinol is BAKUCHIOL, found in the leaves and seeds of the Psoralea corylifolia plant.

It has been proven to have the same effects as retinol on the skin, but is more 'tolerable' - meaning it does not exhibit the same irritative side effects that are associated with retinol. Find out more about our science driven natural formulation.

Science is our brain, nature is our heart. 🧪🌱
