        We suggest applying products in this order:

        • Step 1: Choice of:
          • Cleansing Milk
          • Cleansing Oil
        • Step 2: Toning Essence
        • Step 3: Face Mist
        • Step 4: Face Serum
        • Step 3: Face Mist
        • Step 5: Face Oil
        • Step 6: Apply sunscreen, always
        • Step 7: Apply makeup, as needed

        Layering your skincare products in this manner with the Face Mist keeps Face Oil in place by locking-in moisture and extends the all-day hydration of the Face Serum on the skin

        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 “slow” living in order to heal and nurture ourselves.

        This is exactly why we do what we do - create the best, the most impeccable, the most exquisite products to nurture body + mind + spirit for a lifetime.

        1. We begin every small-batch by sourcing the purest and most precious plant botanicals from cooperative partners across the savannah and rainforests of West Africa and other indigenous origins; we ethically source our 100% certified organic aromatherapeutic grade essential oils and natural plant-based extracts from conscious suppliers in Africa, across the world, and other indigenous cultures.
        2. Every ingredient received is thoroughly tested and analyzed to ensure the highest standards.
        3. Like our mothers, grandmothers, and foremothers, we clean our workspace, we meditate, and we clear our energies before beginning the creative process.
        4. Next, we hand press and blend plant oils for several days, hour upon hour, to preserve their life force and enhance nature’s powerful synergistic effects.
        5. We then patiently age this signature essence over one lunation to extract the full spectrum and excellence of the whole plants’ nutritional values before incorporating them into our handcrafted recipes for complete skin and health nutrition.
        6. We place these healing elixirs into specially-designed violet glass vessels which filter out harmful ultraviolet rays; protecting against deterioration of the precious botanical materials we use.
        7. Just like our female ancestors, we place the finished products in a specially-designed chamber to enhance the ORAC factors and allow the plant botanicals to reach a specific high-frequency state which creates an ultra-nourishing, regenerating, and rejuvenating experience on the skin and within the body.
        8. We then retail these luxurious, decadent products at the right price for the right customers who value the health of their body + mind + spirit, because this is a business of love and heart... freshly-made in small batches by hand as has been done throughout time.

        We do not mass-produce. We do not outsource. We do not compromise. We do not cut corners... ever.

        Non-toxic, anti-inflammatory, anti-irritating, ancient formulas that have proved effective for over thousands of years formulated to stricter EU and Japan standards.

          In simple, yet profound ways, this is why making the very best product matters for those who love how KOKOBÉRNA® products make them feel.
