Koze Jaclyn Hill was a lifestyle brand launched by beauty YouTuber Jaclyn Hill in October 2022. The brand offered a variety of products, including blankets, robes, pajamas, socks, and slippers. However, the brand was met with controversy due to its name, which was already in use by another Canadian lifestyle brand called Koze.
The trademark dispute between Koze Jaclyn Hill and Koze Canada began shortly after Jaclyn Hill launched her brand. Koze Canada had been in business for five years and had trademarked the name “Koze” in Canada. Jaclyn Hill had not trademarked the name in Canada, and she was not aware of the other Koze brand until after she had launched her own.
Koze Canada sent Jaclyn Hill a cease-and-desist letter, demanding that she stop using the name “Koze” for her brand. Jaclyn Hill initially refused, but she later agreed to rebrand her company. Koze Canada also demanded that Jaclyn Hill pay them damages, but it is not clear if they ever reached a settlement.

In November 2022, Jaclyn Hill announced that she was rebranding her company to Jaclyn Roxanne. She said that she wanted to “start fresh” and “avoid any further confusion.” The rebranding was met with mixed reactions from fans and beauty enthusiasts. Some people praised Jaclyn Hill for doing the right thing, while others criticized her for not doing more to research the name of her brand before launching it.
