The Start of Something Beautiful

“WHERE YOUR TALENTS MEET THE NEEDS OF THE WORLD, THERE LIES YOUR PURPOSE.” - Aristotle

THE START OF SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL

I was just like you… a woman who had severe health challenges and got tired of being told I couldn’t trust my ability to know my body intimately and heal with the support of traditional herbal medicines. So I journeyed back to my West African roots and learned all I could about ancient traditions and philosophy of simple living in order to nurture my body + mind + heart + spirit™. In doing so, I rediscovered ancient herbal formulas created since 1611 by my grandmother, my great grandmother, and my foremothers; now 14 generations of medicine women.

While remaining sympathetic to our rich heritage and reverence for tradition, we fearlessly innovate our formulas to create a rich and deep sensory response on the skin and within the body to meet the desires of our discerning clientele.

Using original family-owned recipes from West African monarchs of Old Calabar Kingdom and grounded in science which have now passed from mother to daughter, 14 generations of renowned herbalists and counting.

In the KOKOBÉRNA tradition, the world’s finest and most expensive natural organic indigenous ingredients are ethically sourced, cold-processed, and blended using absolutely no chemicals, silicones, emulsifiers, additives, or synthetically harmful preservatives.

Our skin care preparations are rooted in the science of corneotherapy and correspond to the physiological membrane structure of the natural skin neuro-sensory microbiome which makes them deeply therapeutic in helping improve the skin's repair function and slowing down the skin aging process. Our wellness herbal tea supplements encapsulate the active medicinal properties of the raw whole herbs, essential oils, and powdered extracts that holistically support multi-body systems.

 

SKILLED AND DEDICATED CRAFTSMANSHIP

At all levels, we demand a level of craftsmanship that elevates each handmade product to unique levels of luxury and decadence. It is why we spend weekslong bio-dynamically syncing each batch to its highest frequencies, why our specific method strengthens the synergistic effects of our potentized formulas to bring healing and vitality to those who appreciate the fine art of nature.

Before putting hand to plant, label to vessel, and pen to paper, we must start with the vision of solving a problem. To create the best, the most impeccable, the most exquisite products to nurture body + mind + heart + 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 West Africa, the U.S., and across global origins.
  2. Every ingredient received is thoroughly tested and analyzed to ensure the highest standards.
  3. Like our mothers, grandmothers, and foremothers, we consecrate our workspace 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 these signature essences and herbal blends over one lunation (30-45 days) 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 then hand-fill our sacred formulas into specially-designed violet glass vessels which filter out harmful ultraviolet rays; protecting against deterioration of the precious botanical plant ingredients 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 bio-dynamically reach a specific high-frequency state which creates an ultra-healing, regenerating, and therapeutic experience on the skin and within the body.
  8. We then retail these decadent, nutrient-rich products at the right price for the right customers because this is a business of love and heart... freshly-made by hand in small batches as has been done throughout time.

This is an exhaustive, time-consuming process, but it is the only way we know how to remain extraordinarily dedicated to the preservation of the values and legacy of a vanishing art form.

TRANSCEND MEDIOCRITY

We have a reverence for Mother Earth and its people. In everything we do, we are maniacal about the details and believe transcending mediocrity is paramount. We do not identify with trends. We do not mass-produce. We do not outsource our process to contract manufacturers. We do not compromise. We built an ethical mindset into our business so everything we do considers our impact therefore we do not cut corners... ever.

Our natural, organic, and active ingredients may have slight variations from harvest to harvest and enhanced using traditional biodynamic principles synced to the thirty-day lunar cycle. Always fresh, our products are handcrafted in micro-batches and have a fifteen to twenty-four month shelf life.

Non-toxic, natural and organic, anti-inflammatory, anti-irritating, corrective, and therapeutic formulas that have proved effective since ancient times now modernized and formulated to stricter EU cosmetic standards because doing the bare minimum is just not acceptable.

With daily use, we continue to bring you exquisite therapeutic skincare and wellness products to holistically nurture your daily self-care and elevate your well-being rituals for instant and exceptional results.

    In simple, yet profound ways, this is why making the very best product matters. It matters for highly discerning clients who appreciate and love how KOKOBÉRNA products make them look and feel.

    May you always be #kokobernabeautiful 🤍

    MY GIFT TO YOU: AN AFFIRMATION

    • With eyes closed, feel the gratitude of this affirmation.
    • Smile deeply. Sip a KOKOBÉRNA tisane.

    May you always be #kokobernabeautiful 🤍

    "Every day is election day. You cast your vote with the choices you make – what you buy and who you choose to do business with. With your support, you might consider this our corporate gift of gratitude - a gift back to humanity because as far as we are concerned half of the world's population gave birth to the other half and by inspiring women and young girls to their highest potential, we elevate all of humanity."

    - Belinda  Kǒkóèkà Bassey Ephraim, Founder and CEO

    KOKOBÉRNA 5% Pledge to Women, Humanity, and Mother Earth

    KOKOBÉRNA was founded on the firm belief that empowering women and young girls should be a fundamental human rights issue. Growing up in West Africa and seeing the courageous acts of women on the continent and around the globe withstand so much injustice yet thrive against all odds, we recognize the growing challenge of how the media and popular culture negatively impacts women and young girls' self-image, our health, our spirituality, our leadership, and our sense of possibility in the world. 

    Instead of debating, we are acting and making an investment in women globally. With the help of our devotees across the globe, we are up for the challenge. An important mission to be the catalyst that initiates change for a brighter future because the people crazy enough to think they can change the dynamic and push humanity forward, are the ones who do.

    BEAUTY DEEDS

    We staunchly believe in equitable opportunities for women and girls. The global challenges we face as women in society require leadership. Leadership of ourselves. Therefore, we join forces with charitable partners to:

    • Support sustainable environmental solutions;
    • Support women business owners;
    • Provide the resources for women and young girls to pursue their education in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and Business disciplines;
    • Support women’s mental health; and
    • Provide a safe harbor for women going through domestic violence and other traumatic experiences that affect their safety and well-being. 

    BEAUTY DOLLARS™

    These are a few of the global charitable partners who have proven excellence in driving forward our initiative to support their mission, and ours:

    KOKOBÉRNA was purposely built as a force for good with the goal to provide equity, to inspire, and to elevate humanity with a focus on women and young girls of tomorrow. Hence, we believe "beauty is as beauty does™".

    With your order, we work together to help others less privileged.

    Thank you for being a part of our tribe and may you be #kokobernabeautiful.

    James 2:14-26

    SHIPPING PARTNERS (“CARRIER”)
    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.

    INCORRECT ADDRESS ISSUES
    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.

    REFUSING SHIPMENT
    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 guestservice@kokoberna.com.

    TROUBLESHOOTING SHIPPING ISSUES
    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.

    WON'T BE HOME FOR YOUR ORDER?
    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.

    DAMAGED, MISSING OR LOST IN TRANSIT ITEMS
    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 guestservice@kokoberna.com 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. 

    Returns

    Due to the nature of our products and FDA manufacturing 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.

    Because KOKOBÉRNA uses the highest-quality freshest natural and organic ingredients possible to sell our handcrafted creations, we do not source 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 scent depending on the growing conditions, varietal, harvest time, etc. The fact is, nature is never identical therefore there may be variations in the final product.

    Although a rare occurrence, certain plant ingredients might cause skin reactivity due to factors beyond our control. To ensure skin compatibility, please review the product's list of complete ingredients prior to placing your order as we do not offer returns. An in-depth complimentary skin consult with a KOKOBÉRNA Skin Expert is highly recommended should you have any questions prior to purchase.

    If you feel that there is a problem with your order, please contact us within 5 days of receiving it. To help reduce waste and ensure you are happy with your product choices, we recommend the following steps.

    BEFORE PLACING AN ORDER
    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. A consultation with a KOKOBÉRNA Skin Expert is highly recommended should you have any questions prior to purchase.

    AFTER PLACING AN ORDER
    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 guestservice@kokoberna.com.

    IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL AN ORDER
    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 email guestservice@kokoberna.com as soon as possible.

    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.
