Black business owner launches a new business in a pandemic

Covid-19 turned everything and everyone on its head. All industries felt the knock and for those in the hospitality space, we had to make lemonade out of lemons to keep afloat in a situation where borders were closed and travel was restricted.

Founder & Curator, Cleo Johnson turned her efforts online and went into the e-commerce space launching Koko Kollection, a conscious lifestyle brand that sells all-natural skincare & health products, hand-poured soy candles, and boho-style clothing.

Koko Kollection was a passion project come to life. I am extremely grateful that something I had discussed in private and dreamed of was made a reality. I look forward to growing the brand and seeing where this journey takes me.

Founder, Cleo Johnson

During these uncertain times, this brand kept Nuecleo afloat and was received well by the public and those within her network.

Recently featured in the Nov/Dec issues of Glamour and GQ, Koko Kollection has the momentum to become a local favorite. Koko Kollection collaborates and works with local designers and artisans to provide ingredients and products for the brand.

In 2021 the brand is focusing on healing products for its consumers to aid those who suffer from skin ailments and anxiety. The brand is also in talks about expanding into a health & wellness Spa as well as supply hotels & other accommodations with all natural amenities.
