We are serious about reducing our environmental footprint, and we know you are, as well. We've selected UPS as our primary carrier, and participate in their Carbon Neutral program. When you ship with us via UPS, we purchase carbon offsets based on the amount of carbon associated with a typical shipment to offset the climate impact of each shipment. Additionally, UPS has a global initiative to reduce fuel, conserve energy, recycle and operate responsibly. In addition, we partner with other sustainably minded carriers to include USPS, FedEx, and DHL.

We know mistakes can happen. If you've entered an incorrect address, please let us know as quickly as you can. In some cases, we can update the address prior to your shipment going out. If your order has already shipped, we can help you reroute your packages, but you are responsible for any additional shipping or address correction fees charged by the carrier.

If you refuse your shipment and the order is returned to us, it is considered a non-authorized return and we will not issue credit for your order. All orders are final, unless there is a problem with the product itself, and then we will work with you to replace your product. If you have any questions about this, please let us know at

If KOKOBÉRNA has made a shipping error, we will re-ship to you as quickly as we can and using expedited shipping at our expense.

Consider having your order delivered to a nearby carrier-owned store. This is an important option if you are shipping during hot or cold weather, or if you will have to leave your package in an unsecure area.

While we pack your orders with extreme care, the shipping carrier can sometimes still damage orders. Inspect all packages at the time of acceptance and carefully verify the extent, if any, of damage in the presence of the driver. If possible, keep all packing materials and boxes intact. First notify KOKOBÉRNA to start a claim. Please take photos of all damage and email them to and we will gladly take care of the claim for you. The only time we cannot handle the claim for you is if you shipped your order under your carrier's account number. If that is the case, then please call the carrier and let them know you have a claim to make.

If the driver is already gone, please still follow the steps above. It is very important to take photos of all products in the original packing boxes. Please keep everything together, as KOKOBÉRNA will need to contact the shipping carrier to inspect the damage or loss to start the claim before a replacement can be sent. New items will be shipped as soon as damaged or missing items have been returned to or verified by KOKOBÉRNA or a claim number has been issued to us by the carrier.

You must retain the original packing materials until any claim is resolved. If you discard the damaged goods, there may be no refund or credit by the carrier due the fact that the claim will not be able to be verified.

This process should only take a couple days before new items can be shipped unless the order is lost in transit. Lost items must be traced by the carrier and can take up to 20-30 days for resolution. We will help to get you your product again, but we must have resolution of status before we can reship without payment for the new shipment. If you are not at home for time of package delivery and if you feel you are in an area where someone might pick up and walk off with your delivered package, we highly recommend that you request "signature required upon delivery" when you place your order. You can do so by making a note in the order comments field prior to checking out. 


Due to the nature of our products and FDA regulations, KOKOBÉRNA cannot accept returns.

While we do offer refunds and replacements on products that are damaged during shipping or that are failing, we will need documentation from our shipping partners that damaged did in fact occur.

Please note that because we use natural organic ingredients in our products, there will be variations in viscosity, scent, and color, and these will all vary from batch to batch. Natural ingredients are not identical due to nature of harvest and can cause variations in the final products.

Because KOKOBÉRNA uses the freshest natural organic ingredients possible to create the products we sell, we do not buy huge lots of ingredients at any given time. This means that our ingredients and products are inherently mutable as they are subject to changes in nature. For example, a plant seed oil may fluctuate in color and depending on the growing conditions, varietal, harvest time, etc.

Double-check your shopping cart to make sure it includes the correct products you intended to purchase. You can also talk with our customer service team to learn more about our products.

Check your email for your order confirmation. It is best to do this immediately after placing an order so that you can catch any errors in real time and contact us before your order ships. For example, you may have provided an incorrect shipping address or accidentally ordered the wrong size of a product. It's okay--it happens! If you catch the error quickly, and let us know, we can fix it. However, once your order is out the door it is unfortunately not returnable.

If you see an error on your order confirmation, our Customer Care Representatives will be happy to assist you in troubleshooting. You can contact them at

We process orders as quickly as possible, which means some orders may ship same day. Therefore, to prevent delays we don't have a set window of time during which cancellations are guaranteed. Please ensure your order is correct before submitting, as submitted orders will be treated as final and won't be cancellable after they are shipped.

If you need to request changes or cancellations on an order, please call or text customer service at +1 (312) 380-9441 as soon as possible. Please do not send an email for order cancellations.

Orders placed over the weekend will be processed the following business day.

Please note, custom orders cannot be cancelled and include a prior agreed to non-refundable service fee.

If a change needs to be made to your order, please notify us within 24 hours. No changes or cancellations can be made after 24 hours.

    Spa Experience Every Time

    I love the consistency of the milk cleanser and the way it feels on my skin. It provides a nourishing sensation and I love the fresh, earthy, relaxing aroma of the product. I use the milk cleanser by massaging it into my skin. It makes my skin feel so moisturized and provides a supple texture on my skin. It does not dry my skin out and I REALLY appreciate that. I use this product in combination with the KOKOBERNA toner, serum, and oil. It's a spa reminiscent experience each day I use the treatment. Thank you, Kokoberna <3

    Skin is glowing

    After just using this for the first time my skin is glowing! I was rubbing it on and a ball of dead skin formed — even after using my scrub bi-weekly I still had all of this on my face! After I washed it off you could see the difference clearly. I am sold!

DIVINE ORIGIN™ Milk is a luxurious cleansing cream that virtually melts onto the skin and thoroughly dissolves makeup and impurities. Formulated in an emulsion of Western African plant polysaccharides, exfoliating plant- and fruit-based acids (alpha-, beta-, and poly-hydroxy acids), and botanical enzymes to delicately refine the skin's texture, minimize appearance of pigmentation marks, and deeply nourish skin for optimal hydration.

Used daily, DIVINE ORIGIN™ Milk elevates the epidermis and prepares the skin to receive our collection of serums, bioactive essences, and hydrating moisturizers.

Formulated with botanical skincare actives yet gentle enough for all skin types especially mature, hormonal skin. Maintain healthy skin pH so it appears youthful, plump, and even-toned.

After removing eye makeup, I recommend cleansing twice:
• First to effectively breakdown long-wear makeup residue
• Second to thoroughly ensure skin is clean and pH stabilized.

• Moisten fingertips, gently massage skin during your cleanse for two minutes twice a day to enjoy healthier, youthful looking skin in as little as two weeks.

• Milk and/or Balm can be mixed with ESSENTIA NOCTIS™ Toner and applied over dry face, neck, and décolleté. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse off for a daytime facial that instantly smooths rough skin surface, brightens dull skin, and minimizes pigmentation concerns for an even-toned appearance.
• Alternate between and/or mix DIVINE ORIGIN™ Milk and DIVINE ORIGIN™ Balm to nurture skin based on seasons.
• Brew and drink 2-3 cups of SKIN GOLD™ Tisane throughout the day.

• Place palms together between the lower part of your ribcage, close eyes, and recite: “In this moment, my skin is perfectly healthy. Thank you.”
• With eyes closed, feel the gratitude of this affirmation.
• Smile deeply. Sip a KOKOBÉRNA tisane.

May you always be #kokobernabeautiful 🤍
