20 Questions with Cocokind Founder Priscilla Tsai
Cocokind founder Priscilla Tsai recently announced her pregnancy on Instagram—the former Wall Street investment banker is now expecting her first baby in February after saying ‘I Do’ in her virtual wedding earlier this year—and along with her bump, her wildly successful clean skincare brand has been doing a little growing too!
After struggling for years with her own skin sensitivities and committing to find better alternatives to traditional skincare, Tsai launched cocokind in November 2014. Grit, passion, and a strong belief in all-natural skincare fueled her first year of business, selling to retailers door to door. The brand gained its footing in retail before becoming popular online with its skincare sticks: beet, turmeric, and matcha.
Tsai has since expanded cocokind’s line of plant-based products to include daily must-haves like the vegan Morning Mocha Latte and uber-hydrating Matcha Face Moisturizer, building upon the brand’s sought-after favorites like the Oil to Milk Cleanser and Sea Kale Clay Mask (a collaboration with Shut the Kale Up founder Jeannette Ogden).
Inspired by all that she’s accomplished to catapult cocokind into clean beauty fame, we put the San Francisco based entrepreneur on the clock with twenty questions, ranging from her typical coffee order (you know we love this question!) to the last book she read (also adding to our own must read lists!).
