In The Beginning

My name is Belinda Kǒkóèkà Bassey Ephraim.

I am the founder of KOKOBÉRNA and want to personally thank you for choosing us as you embark on a timeless skin care experience.

Since the early 1600s and throughout the ages, my ancestors, the traditional monarchs of Old Calabar Kingdom, created divine skin care treatments for daughters of aristocratic families during rites of passage.

This is a family tradition and we base our skin care treatments on the same formulas that were used back then, now.

And so, for us, the quality, the type of plant ingredients that we use, are quite unique.

We have taken 65 thoroughly researched potent indigenous West African plant materials and skin-transforming plant extracts into our luxurious skin care products.

Our Hydrating Face Serum is meticulously formulated with anti-aging ingredients that fight the aging process. We use ingredients such as Certified Organic West African Kamanu Foraha & Edelweiss Leaf Extracts + bioactive plant peptides, which has been proven to slow down the aging process, boost collagen production from within, and enhance the skin’s appearance.

Our Regenerating Face Oil is a skin repair oil that is precisely formulated with fast absorbing skin-transforming ingredients such as Certified Organic West African Baobab and Marula Seed Oils, which have been proven to repair damaged skin, remove scars and blemishes, as well as enhance the regeneration of new cells for flawless radiant skin.

Starting with cleansed damp skin, we recommend layering the face oil over the face serum. This helps fight the aging process while locking in intense all-day hydration.

At the end of your day, after you have removed your makeup and cleansed your skin, the face oil should be used alone at the end of the day, before bedtime, to help repair skin cells and boost the skin’s defense mechanism while you sleep.

The face oil is calming; in addition to fast-absorbing plant oils, we include a transcendent blend of synergistic essential oils that help to relax you right before bedtime, calm your skin, repair the skin’s barrier, and prepare the skin while you sleep for the next day.

Instantly, you will notice visible results and soon, your skin will look less aged, less irritated, more resilient, supple, smooth, and radiant.

Blessed with this exquisite heritage that has withstood the test of time, our timeless family-owned ancestral recipes and our handcrafted techniques to create these divine skin care treatments, we welcome you to the KOKOBÉRNA family.

May you always be beautiful.

    I have used Kokoberna specifically to heal scars and blemishes. It worked like a magic potion…no exaggeration. Very impressed!
