Meet 28-year Olwethu Ngcobo, the founder and creator of Lola & Co Organics. After years of struggling with break-outs and dry skin, she did her research and started creating small batches of organic skincare products for herself and her family and friends. This led to more referrals and great feedback from clients and in 2016 Olwethu decided to take the business idea more seriously. So seriously in fact that she enrolled at an organic formulation school in Cape Town so she could better understand the business and build a trusted brand.
Lola & Co’s products are unisex and include a coffee body polish, which acts as an exfoliator for all skin types, and hand-crafted body soaps. Olwethu’s business is self-funded and she is also responsible for the formulations of all the ingredients.
The Joburg-based company’s products are strictly organic and locally produced. Lola & Co has been so well received that Olwethu will be expanding the product range and launching body oils later this year amongst other products. “Lola & Co Organics is & lifestyle brand created for those who want to live an organic and clean life without spending a lot of money and also receive great results in the end.”
Take your time, donʼt feel rushed to produce results instantly, everything will fall into place in time.
She also wants to use her knowledge to educate people about their skin and the benefits of going organic. The goal, she says is to grow the brand across the continent and see Lola & Co Organics in spas and hotels across the country. At this rate, she’s well on her way. Olwethu we’re rooting for you as you climb to even greater heights. Isn’t she lovely?!
