Inspiring Conversations with Khalia Satterwhite of KOKOA LIPS

Today we’d like to introduce you to Khalia Satterwhite.

KOKOA LIPS was established in August 2020 by teen entrepreneur Khalia Satterwhite. Khalia is 13 years old. She started this business during the Pandemic, and with being in the house having nothing to do, she found an interest in making lipgloss. After doing some research and testing sensitive skin types. She was excited to start sharing her products with the world. She started out selling to friends and family, eventually she expanded and started selling online. Khalia started out with lip glosses in squeeze tubes but now also offers lip glosses in wand tubes, lip oils, lip scrubs, body oils, and even body butters! She looks forward to creating other natural cosmetics and body care products in the future.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It wasn’t always a smooth road. But however, I would say my most major obstacle was time. You have to put so much time into your business. From finding new and creative ways to promote and keeping your audience engaged. Like many other teens owned businesses, I have school, which requires a lot of time. So I try to dedicate my weekends to my business. It can be hard to balance at times, but I love doing what I do.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about KOKOA LIPS?
KOKOA LIPS started out as a lip care brand but we now have expanded to skincare as well. Offering Body oils and Whipped Body Butters! We also have many fun and unique lip glosses to choose from. Customers are also able to make custom/specialty orders with us!
