My Koche

Handmade Skincare (Better For You)

In 2009, Koche (pronounced ko-che) was founded to solve a mother's problem of her sons psoriasis and eczema. The owner wanted to provide her son with a holistic way to manage his sensitive, dry skin. Her mission has been to create all-natural skincare products that soothe; hydrate and moisturize the skin.


Luxurious Wellniss


Luxurious Wellniss transcends the label of being another brand – it is a mission-driven enterprise that seeks to refresh and rejuvenate the routines and products of both men and women of color whose needs have not been prioritized in the wellness realm. Moreover, an integral part of Luxurious Wellniss’ mission lies in empowering brands that are owned and operated by women.
