Founder and Head Scientist Akosua "Kokoa" Akobeng always struggled to find suitable products to take care of her sensitive skin, psoriasis and eczema. When Kokoa’s father returned from a trip to her homeland Ghana, he brought Traditional African Black Soap and 100% shea butter to help her skin - resulting in her skin issues becoming a thing of the past. Leveraging her Biomedical Science studies from Kings College London, Kokoa began to formulate her own natural products. She has not had a flare-up of eczema or psoriasis since 2016. Kokoa Eco Beauty products are 100% vegan, natural and cruelty-free, formulated without palm oil, parabens and sulphates.
