Shahrzad Taban - Production Assistant, Customer Care

Born in Iran and raised in Vancouver, Shahrzad is a scientist who graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Biochemistry from Simon Fraser University. Her educational background combined with her passion for skincare and health led her to start a career in the skincare industry after her studies. We are proud to have her as a new team member at Okoko Cosmétiques.

"Creating a natural skincare brand that actually gives results has always been my dream. When I reached the age of eighteen, I started struggling with acne, and for this reason, I became more interested in skincare and began researching it. As I grew older my acne problem became worse (and I tried so many different big brand name products), but didn’t really see the results I was expecting over the long term. For this reason, creating natural acne products that actually give results was always on my mind. The more I researched, the more passionate about skincare and health I became and ultimately, I decided to study Biology and Biochemistry at Simon Fraser University."

IN HER OWN WORDS

“What I love about Okoko Cosmétiques is their results-driven, green, elegant and artisanal skincare that is also eco-friendly, and their commitment to giving back to the community. The brand stands out by building a team that is diverse, multicultural, dynamic, professional and skilled.”

OKOKO LABELS

"I am so grateful to have the privilege of working with this wonderful brand and I’m so excited to make a positive contribution with my background in biology and biochemistry and my experience in retail and cosmetics. My hope is to become a skincare formulator at Okoko and to get involved in R & D and future product launches. On my free days I love to attend pilates classes and spend time with my close friends.”
