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 tomorrow's discerning customer.

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 4-8 weeks 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 who value the health of their body + mind + heart + spirit™, 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.

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.

    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 feel and look.

    May you always be #kokobernabeautiful.

    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.
