CORE VALUES

BEAUTY + WISDOM + WELL-BEING

The West African proverb “the sun is hidden in her face”, translates a reflection of purity, of thought, of action; one’s inner light. Therefore, we believe a healthy body + mind + spirit™ exudes the sun within. Our exceptionally handcrafted products holistically nurture and nourish your whole being for a lifetime of abundant beauty + wisdom +well-being™ so when others see you, they see the radiant light within. 

 

REVERENCE + ONENESS

We have an unwavering commitment to the quality of our products and the lasting promise they deliver thereby creating an enduring love relationship between our customers who deserve the best, our products because they are of the most impeccable quality, and the reverence we have for Mother Earth; a sacred triumvirate.

 

DO NO EVIL CAUSE NO HARM

A force for good, KOKOBÉRNA works steadily to do less harm and more good for people + planet. We choose not to be part of the problem and constantly evolve our business practices for the highest good of all involved.

 

MAKE THE VERY BEST PRODUCT

We are just like you… women who had severe health challenges and got tired of being told we couldn’t trust our ability to know our bodies intimately and heal with the support of traditional herbal medicines. So we journeyed back to our West African origins and learned all we could about ancient traditions and the philosophy of vibrant living using traditional indigenous medicinal plants to help heal and nurture ourselves. This is exactly why we do what we do: create the best, the most impeccable, the most therapeutic products to nurture your body + mind + spirit™ for a lifetime.

 

USE BUSINESS TO INSPIRE + UPLIFT

We staunchly believe in equal human rights and equitable opportunities for women and girls. The global challenges we face as women in society require leadership. Leadership of ourselves.

Therefore, we use business as an effective tool donating 5% of every sale to charity partners that support our lifetime mission of uplifting women and young girls. Partners that support women business owners; partners that provide the resources for young girls to pursue their education in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Business disciplines; partners that support women’s mental health; and partners that provide a safe harbor for women going through domestic violence and other traumatic experiences that affect their well-being.

An important mission to inspire and uplift others less able to do so. To be the catalyst that initiates change for a brighter future. Thank you for being a part of our tribe and may you always be #kokobernabeautiful.
