Oyéta Kokoroko
Cosmetic Formulator
Oyéta Kokoroko is an experienced cosmetics formulator, entrepreneur, and founder of OKOKO Cosmétiques and OKOKO Academy — two platforms that promote and empower the pursuit of inspiration, passion, knowledge and excellence.

A devoted learner and researcher at heart, Oyéta is on a never-ending quest to discover and develop innovative skincare solutions that promote the five vital functions of a healthy, youthful complexion: moisture, nutrition, protection, renewal and radiance.

OKOKO Cosmétiques unlocks the full power of natural ingredients to reveal brighter, firmer and visibly renewed skin, and to envelop you in a delightful sensorial experience every time.
Oyéta's journey
As her knowledge about holistic nutrition, botanical medicine and organic cosmetic science expanded, Oyéta became more conscious about the provenance and quality of the skincare products she was using, and how they impacted her skin health.

On her journey from enthusiastic self-learner to the passionate, qualified skincare formulator she is today, Oyéta enrolled in a range of reputable skincare formulation schools in order to gain an even deeper understanding of how different ingredients can be blended to maximize the delivery and benefits of key actives.

OKOKO Cosmétiques was born out of a desire to build a recognized, credible green luxury skincare brand that offers science-backed, high-performance formulations that go beyond natural and actually surpass their mainstream equivalents.

The brand utilizes exquisite, carefully selected, socially conscious, ethical and organic ingredients that are sourced from around the globe and expertly blended to deliver visible results.
Innovating the Green Beauty Arena
In developing OKOKO, one of Oyéta’s motivations was doing good and empowering other people to achieve healthy, beautiful skin without putting their health at risk.

Acknowledging the fact that most skincare companies often choose to compromise the integrity of their products by using fillers in their formulations in orderto minimize production costs, Oyéta set out to innovate the green beauty arena with quality organic skincare productscarefully developed to appeal to today’s savvy and discerning green customers.

“What sets OKOKO Cosmétiques apart are our ingredient knowledge, formulation expertise and wholehearted commitment to research and development.” — Oyéta Kokoroko, founder of OKOKO Cosmétiques
Unwavering in her vision to craft the purest, most potent green luxury organic beauty products, Oyéta chooses not to use water as a base ingredient in her formulations, which many beauty companies still do to reduce production costs.

From botanicals with superpowers to essential oils and multi-tasking extracts, the OKOKO range is supercharged with powerful antioxidants and treatment molecules that produce the most impactful, visible and beautiful results.

The OKOKO luxury skincare product linepromises maximum efficiency and value. Potent, unparalleled performance, minus the fillers. Explore the OKOKO range of organic skincare products.
