Meet our new team member Siu-Ling

February 02, 2018

My name is Siu-Ling and I work in production, export and sales with Okoko Cosmetiques. I assist Oyeta in production, ordering raw materials and with all aspects of our wholesale division. I work with our wholesale partners to ensure that all export and import activities are successfully completed. I am also a Junior Formulator and Formula Botanica student. I am currently training to become a professional skincare formulator at Okoko Cosmétiques and I'm excited to evolve and be part of this great team.   

My background

I have a background in international commerce and supply chain management. Passionate about cosmetics and high-end perfumes, I have worked in the perfume industry in Paris, with some of the finest suppliers and factories. I was involved in many projects that allowed me to be in contact with labs, perfumers, regulatory bodies and to contribute to the production and development of new perfumes distributed internationally. However, after many years in that environment, I became tired and concerned about the ingredients used in perfumes and other cosmetics. When I became a mother, my partner and I started wanting to live a healthier, more balanced lifestyle. At the time, I was juggling between a hectic professional life in busy Paris while raising a toddler (that means lots of short and sleepless nights) my skin quickly took a hit. I was tired of not finding effective products on the market for my "problem" skin (which was always dry, dehydrated, tight and marked easily). After trying lots of different products without finding the right fit for my skin, I started seeking natural options. I found DIY skincare and beautiful, natural recipes that I started making in my kitchen, excited to delve into something that was more aligned with my values.

Living my dream and my passion with Okoko, in Vancouver

A year ago, I left France and the stressful Parisian life and landed in Vancouver, British-Columbia with my small tribe. Vancouver is a city that amazes me with the beauty of its landscape, healthy lifestyle, the positive thinking of its inhabitants and its multicultural wealth. Living in Vancouver inspired me to pursue a clean, balanced lifestyle including using ethical and natural products. Working at Okoko Cosmétiques is a dream come true! I am grateful to live my passion and contribute to a growing and exciting green beauty company with a mission and commitment aligned with my values.
