Meet Oyeta
Professional Formulator, Founder & Creator
My story, journey and process!
Bonjour! My name is Oyéta, founder, researcher, and (professionally trained) skincare formulator at OKOKO Cosmétiques. My passion is to create some of the finest natural skincare products that can answer my customers most important skincare needs.

The journey

My journey started with the desire to
solve my own skin issues naturally. So I have been there, trying to find clean beauty products that really worked and would deliver the results I expected. That is when I began my journey of seeking a natural solution to my
skin problems. I started reading and researching about different ingredients.

Educating myself on the natural ingredients turned out to be a revelation. It was an epiphany to learn how cosmetics industry incorporate neutral and inexpensive ingredients, such as filler ingredients, petroleum-derived waxes and silicones, which often make up 85 % of a cosmetic product.

I became more
serious and conscious about the quality of products I was applying on my skin and my body; and the overall effect it had on my health. From being an enthusiastic self-educator to a fervent qualified skincare formulator, I enrolled in diverse reputable schools and today I’m a certified expert skincare formulator.
The journey and process
Since we have launched, we had put a lot of efforts in R & D to find the finest ingredients all around the world to address your most important skincare needs. Some of our favorite ingredients are Dragon’s Blood extract, Lycopene,
Bakuchiol (natural retinol), Glacial Marine Clay (Earth’s Finest clay), Venuceane (Heat Activated Active) & fermented ingredients (fermentation increases potency creating supercharged ingredients that
are loaded with actives).

Our sophisticated formulas have a high % of active ingredients to increase results for you. Formulated without compromise. Made to give you the most results from your skincare. Because we know you want results.
Cultivating the innovative spirit
As innovators, our products will always be on the cutting edge of the best in natural + science. What you get is the knowledge behind each creation, the research, clever formulas and more results. For example, our precious, finely crafted Super Elixir Le Sang Du Dragon is one of our hero products, remarkable in many ways. We have sold out many times. We have helped many skins. This serum is like no other! And we have also recently elevated the Sublime balm and our 16 Precieux which are our original hero products. Check them out, they are amazing!
What do you most want your customers to get out of using your products?
I designed the OKOKO line to deliver a spa experience with true effectiveness. Okoko offers the opportunity to indulge and see results. Most of all, I want these products to feel amazing for you, to deliver results and to become part of your daily ritual. There is everything you
need to plump, nourish and repair. Prepare to look amazing! Exude radiance.
Why is "me time" so important to you?
For many women, we’re often told that we are only useful, only valuable when we devote ourselves to others; that caring for ourselves in the last thing that we should consider. Caring for yourself is not selfish. It is a necessity. It is definitely easier to serve others when your basic needs are met and your “tank is full”.

What are your favorite tips and self-care actions you'd like to share to give your loved ones the best of you?

1- Recognize when you are exhausted and take a break.
2- Think about what you really want to do, and go ahead and do it.
3- Do more of what makes you awesome
4- Don't be afraid to set boundaries. Boundaries allow us to take better care of ourselves - emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.
5- Self-love is asking yourself what you need – everyday – and then making sure you receive it.
Can you describe how and why your line brings together the best of botanical skincare and scientific skincare to produce such amazing results?
My goal is to bring together the valuable from conventional formulation with the best in green beauty, taking the valuable aspects of both and combining them. I took the time to listen to green skincare consumers, and what I was hearing was that people wanted green formulation with active ingredients to amplify results.

This feedback is really what inspired me to combine the best of natural skincare with safe, clinically tested actives. I am committed to
innovation and want my green products to deliver results on par with conventional products. But I will not use low-quality, mass-produced
ingredients or fillers in my products. If I say I can deliver something (with Okoko Cosmétiques), you can be sure I’ve done my homework on it.

What drives you?
I try to think, how can I be of service to people? That’s my mission. It’s a lot of work, and I’m trying to be consistent in order to: open minds, set a higher bar, deliver advanced high-performance products that rival the results from conventional beauty products. I want to start a conversation with other brands, rally others, and invite them to be part of making green beauty kick ass!

What is your approach with natural beauty?

My approach combines compassion, knowledge and education to help others improve real skin issues. You know, I have lived it myself. I have had skin challenges, frustration, and health concerns. I have done the research, the trial-and- error... and found what works. I also understand the emotional and physical challenges, the insecurity, the lack of confidence that we all face sometimes in our beauty journey.
