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.”
"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.”
