How was the OKAY Brand of products conceived?
Here at OKAY we are a family that has been involved in the beauty industry for many years. Our passion and love for beauty and personal care has taken us in many directions. This passion fueled us into acquiring a small manufacturing company and developing a brand that was more natural and directed towards today’s multicultural community. Our influence has always been offering a mix of products for today’s health conscious user. Back in 2010 the brand only had a handful of products, and today that number is well over 100 items, including oils, soaps, butters, shampoos, conditioners, and treatments. Over half of our selection is all natural. Most of our overall development has come from the needs of today’s era of health conscious women. As a private, family-owned company, we listen to our customers and have the freedom to develop products that our users can relate to and love.
Why are essential oils an important addition to a woman's beauty routine?
Adding essential oil to your beauty routine can be a wonderful experience. These oils are in their purest forms and provide many benefits that cannot be found in other products. Today’s women have become more knowledgeable, experienced, and creative when it comes to taking care of their hair and skin. Most of them turn towards essential oils to create the perfect product for their particular need. Essential oils can be added to some of your favorite products like shampoos, conditioners, and treatments for added benefits or just personal preference. We encourage COCOTIQUE subscribers to search the internet and see the abundance of DIY hair and skin care products that can be developed using these essential oils, all of which can be created using OKAY® Pure Naturals® products. Aside from the benefits it provides for hair and skin most essential oils also have an uplifting, aromatic scent that, when inhaled, reduces stress, increases focus, and helps you relax. When essential oils are added to your beauty routine the possibilities and benefits are endless.
Tell us about your new line of facial scrubs, which include yummy scents like peppermint, papaya and orange.
When we set out to develop this line we wanted to offer customers an excellent facial scrub that would become their new favorite. These Paraben and sulfate-free premium facial scrubs are created with some of the best natural fruit extracts for cleansing the face. They all have natural crushed walnut, which is used for exfoliation. Adding a facial scrub to your beauty arsenal is very important and dermatologists recommend using one at least twice a week. This helps prevent dead skin from building up and keeps pores clear of oil and free of blackheads.
We offer a great variety and each has its own benefit, which can address different facial issues. For example, apricot and lemon are great for deep cleaning, green apple helps to balance skin, papaya helps clarify, apricot prevents blemishes, and orange helps control oily skin. The Peppermint Facial Scrub, a favorite among our users, is a multiuse two-in-one product which serves as a scrub + masque.
Our December subscribers are receiving your Jamaican Black Castor Oil. How can they use it for their hair this winter?
The winter season can be a little harsh on hair and it is important to keep it both moisturized and nourished. Our OKAY® Black Jamaican Castor Oil® with Vitamin E works great on all hair types and can be used in many ways. This nourishing oil can be used daily to moisturize hair and weekly as a hot oil treatment for replenishing vital nutrients that keep hair healthy and strong, and help promote natural healthier hair growth. You can apply onto scalp to alleviate dry patches and dandruff, and onto your edges to help keep them nice and full. This bottle comes with an easy applicator tip cap, which is great for easily applying the oil, and it’s small enough to fit into your purse for on-the-go use.
