Discover the Connector - An information source and online network for the green beauty industry, founded by Cosmetic Formulator, Oyeta Kokoroko.

So here's the vision: the hope is, the Connector will become a vital network of formulators, makers, bloggers, boutique owners, entrepreneurs and consumers who want to connect, exchange exciting ideas, engage in friendly discussion, and make new connections in the industry.

The inspiration is to create a site where we can support each other, share tips and tricks, and contribute to elevating the state of knowledge in our industry. Ultimately, the dream is to help green natural organic beauty to move from the fringe, to the mainstream and thus help people think about the effect of skincare and personal health (but also important elements like sustainability, environmental impact, waste reduction, etc.) and inspire brands to consistently deliver the highest quality products that are made safely.

The last few years, I had one of the most amazing experience of my life running and managing the Okoko Cosmétiques brand. I have learned important lessons such as the challenges of formulating and making skincare, what goes into a product, cosmetic chemistry, how to work with suppliers and understanding what they are selling to us. I also learned how to work with others, develop leadership and management skills. This experience gave me confidence and valuable insight that I want to share with you on theconnector.online.

So I have asked myself, how can I add value? My reflection led me to create the Connector. I felt there was a need for a resource-oriented platform where consumers, indie beauty entrepreneurs and other entrepreneurs can go and get inspired, ask questions, learn, and network with like-minded people.

I invite you to visit the theconnector.online and take the time to read the articles to discover what we are about. Make sure to join our mailing list to receive new updates such as informative articles, podcasts, expert advice and consulting opportunities. Feel free to connect with my team and I for collaborations, interviews or to become a contributor.
